Since my wife is studying at the University of Freiburg, we took the chance and participated in Apple's Back to School promo. If you buy an iPod together with a Mac, Apple will return you 125€ ($160). To retrieve the money you have to give Apple this information:
- a copy of the invoice with the serial numbers of both the Mac and the iPod
- the Apple Online Store reference number
- the bar codes from both products' packages together with the part of the package they are glued on
You have to enter your name, address etc. together with the reference number online to get an special discount number. Then you have to print out a page containing this number and send it together with a copy of the invoice and the bar codes to an address located in the United Kingdom.
After a few weeks you should receive a check... I am curious if this really works. ;-)
Anyway, see what I did for the money (<german>brutalstmöglich!</german>):
