This year saw us saying goodbye to Apple MacBook, leaving us with MacBook Air and Pro models. This is the second time it got discontinued and it remains to be seen if Apple will resurrect it again like last time, in 2015. Both remaining models have been updated and discounted just in time for back to school shopping sprees.
What is new about the Air and Pro models?
First of all, Apple discounted Air to $1,099 and added Apple True Tone technology to its retina display. The Pro is now $1,299 and features True Tone, Touch ID, a Touch Bar display, a new security chip, and an optionally added more powerful processor.
Both of those computers are a part of Apple back to school promotion, which also includes Beats Studio 3 wireless headphones with a purchase.

Are there any more ways to save for back to school?
B&H Payboo credit card can help save more money on Apple products and computers by refunding sales tax in the form of an instant rebate. Let’s take a look at how it works:
- Where can customers get this Payboo Card?
The Payboo Card is a B&H store card that can be used when shopping online, on mobile devices, by phone or in NYC SuperStore. It can be used exclusively B&H and is not a typical credit card.
- Does it work on international orders?
Yes, the card can be used for international orders, but the rebate discount won’t apply. Furthermore, Apple is unable to ship Mac and iPad orders outside of the US due to manufacturer limitations.
- What bank services the card and is there a savings limit?
No, there is no savings limit or cap on how much customers can save. The servicing and issuing bank is Synchrony Bank.
- Is this card for personal use only or can businesses take advantage of it too?
Even though this card is a personal credit card, it can also be used for B2B and education portals purchases. Employees of those businesses can also use the card for personal purchases.
- How will the sales tax refund be reflected and when?
When Payboo Card is used to pay for electronic purchases the tax-equivalent refund is instantaneous and issued right away on all non-tax-exempt items shipped to eligible states.
- Are there any exclusions to know about?
The tax-exempt reward does not apply for gift cards and for customers who reside in states that do not participate in tax-exempt programs. Customers are encouraged to check their state’s eligibility by entering their zip code before shopping.
