Apple gives away MacBook Airs, iPads and iPods in Japanese ‘Lucky Bags’


Apple had four different Fukubukoro configurations (translated to “lucky bags”) awaiting their customers this year. Each bag sells for 36,000 Yen or around $340.

Every bag represented a saving, with the biggest savings coming with bags containing an 11-inch MacBook Air, Apple Magic Mouse, Pill Speaker by Beats, red MacBook Air jacket, special New Year’s Apple shirt and other small items.

The three other “big surprise” gifts were Wi-Fi versions of the iPad Air and the first-gen iPad Mini. The seventh-generation iPod Nanos were also included alongside Apple made accessories such as Smart Covers. You could also have gotten the Philips hue starter kit, Nike+ FuelBand SE, Ultimate Ears Mobile Boombox, Stem IZON View remote control camera and Square’s credit card reader.
