If you been wanting to buy an iPhone or Mac, January 6 couldn’t be the best to do so. Why? Because, on this day, Apple is celebrating Chinese New Year by giving away a pair of (PRODUCT)RED Beats Solo3 Wireless On-ear Headphones with purchase of select Mac or iPhone. There’s a catch here though; this giveaway will only be available in select countries and as you may have already guessed, the offer is extended to countries that celebrates this festive occasion, namely China, Hong Kong, Singapore, as well as Taiwan.
Oddly, Malaysia is excluded from this free headphones deal even though Chinese New Year is marked and an official national holiday in the country. Malaysia is, however, included in the New Year’s Gift Guide which catalogs a handful of Chinese New Year-themed products, along with products in red and gold colorways. In case you don’t already know, red and gold are colors symbolizing luck and prosperity in Chinese culture.
The Chinese New Year-themed products, which are Apple-exclusive (so are the rest of the red and gold products), includes some rather interesting stuff like the lion dance LionBot Kit from UBTECH, a limited edition DJI Phantom 4 decorated in mythical Phoenix artwork by Spanish designer Martin Sati, Chinese New Year Edition Galaxy ZEGA Battle Toys based on the images of traditional Chinese auspicious animals, dragon and lion, and a Tech21 Evo Elite Case featuring Chinese fusion painting by Chinese pop artist, Jacky Tsai.
Also offered are a few (PRODUCT)RED items, including the Apple Watch sport band, iPhone 7 Leather Case, and of course, the aforementioned Beats Solo3 wireless over-ear headphones. Back to the free headphones deal… eligible Mac and iPhone include iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Pro, iPhone 7/7 Plus and iPhone 6s/6s Plus. If you are eyeing a 2016 MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, then you are out of luck for a free pair of Beats headphones cos’ it is not included this offer. Why? We have absolutely no idea at all.
