Apple Yesterday

As a part of its 4-day sale, which offers substantial discounts on Apple Watch and other popular electronics, Best Buy is giving shoppers a free iPad mini 2 with the purchase of a MacBook Pro or 27-inch Retina 5K iMac. This freebie carries a $269 MSRP but typically sells for around $228 at Walmart and the like.

There are 13 models eligible for this sale. We recommend taking a look at the 27-inch iMacs that are available as we’ve seen a number of price drops on MacBook Pro lately with the rumored upgrade coming in the fall. You can bag a free iPad mini for as little as $1,099.99 shipped with this 13-inch model. Shop the entire selection for more options.

Best Buy has launched a 4-day sale in celebration of Memorial Day with some deep discounts on Apple products. Free shipping is available or you can opt for in-store pickup if you’re hoping to enjoy your new purchase over the long weekend.

The standout deal of this sale is savings up to $200 on Apple Watch Stainless Steel with Sport Bands. Prices start at $349 (Reg. $549) for 38mm model with a choice of a few Sports Bands. You can grab the larger 42mm for $399 (Reg. $599). Today’s discounts are a match of our previous mention and the best available. For further comparison, that’s only $50 more than Apple charges for the Sport model direct.


Another notable piece of today’s sale is that Apple’s official Classic Buckle Leather Watch Band is on discount in two styles. The 38mm in black is available for $449 (Reg. $649) and 42mm is down to $499 (Reg. $699).

This is the first substantial discount that we’ve seen on official Apple Watch bands. That said, these prices still feel astronomical, especially in comparison to the wide selection of third-party options for sale on Amazon. If you’re looking to save a little cash, give this highly-rated leather band option a try at $21 Prime shipped. Prefer Milanese Loop? This band is on sale for just $12 Prime shipped (Reg. $15+). You might think these knock-offs aren’t as high of quality, but I’ve found them to be worth the time.

Be sure to check out the rest of this weekend’s deals in our full Best Buy roundup.

On my recent trip to San Francisco, I realized that I had forgotten to bring my iPhone wall charger. It wasn’t the end of the world because I had a selection of other phones with me, but I had some key info — like boarding passes etc. — on my iPhone, and I needed to charge it.

Grabbing a new charger would only take $20 and a trip to the local convenience store, but I realized that I had a portable charger in my backpack — one with a Lightning port and plenty of juice to power up my phone. I ended up going a full four days using nothing but the Olala 13000mAh portable battery charger for my energy needs…

Best Buy is now discounting several of Apple’s latest products. The best deal from the bunch is iPad mini 4 starting at $299 with free shipping, which is a savings of $100. That same discount has been extended to all Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + Cellular models. If you can afford the $100 upcharge, we’d recommend going with 64GB of storage since most people will find 16GB limiting due to the size of Retina-optimized apps and HD content. Use your savings to buy this highly-rated Smart-Shell Case with auto sleep/wake for just $10.95 Prime shipped.

You can also save $50-$100 on Apple Watch. We’ve definitely seen stronger deals in the past, but this is currently your best option if you need one in time for Mother’s Day. That discount will easily cover a couple extra third-party bands.

The all-new 4th generation Apple TV has received a $25 discount. That drops the 32GB model down to $124.99 and the 64GB model down to $174.99. For a look at the best accessories for your new streaming player, click here.

Apple April 29


As someone that often carries around a portable battery or two when on-the-go for extended periods of time (because I don’t particularly like the added bulk of using a battery case), this new MagicMount product from Scosche looks very interesting.

A super slim magnetic pad goes on your phone, and the battery pack then magnetically attaches to it when needed and connects to your iPhone over a built-in Lightning connector or micro-USB for Android. That gives you the benefits of a battery case by having the portable battery attached to the device, but also allows you to easily remove it once you’ve added enough juice to your device.
