Always wanted a set of Beats headphones? Now might be the best time to get a pair, for free. Apple announced today a new back-to-school promotion, which gives students or eligible faculty members a free pair of Beats headphones when they purchase a new Mac.

The free pair, Beats Solo 2 wired headphones, comes with the purchase of a new iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air or Mac Pro. Unfortunately, refurbished computers and the Mac mini are not eligible.

Apple retail stores and Apple Authorized Campus stores will have the promotion beginning July 23, 2015 through September 18, 2015. U.S. Apple online store will see the promotion on Aug. 6, 2015.

With the new purchase of a Mac, a $200 discount will be applied for the Beats headphones in black, white, red, blue, gray or pink. But, if you’re interested in the wireless version of the Beats Solo 2 headphones, the $200 discount can be applied to them, which puts their price to only $100.

For now, the promotion is available in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico. Though, expect other countries to follow with a similar promotion for back-to-school.
