staples-ipad-air-couponipad-mini-retina-best-buy

Update (8/13 4:30 PM): Blutek via eBay Daily Deals offers the iPad Air 32GB WiFi (Silver or Space Gray) for $489.99 shipped. That’s $110 off the original list price.

Update (8/11 11:10am): Blutek via eBay Daily Deals:

Staples and Best Buy have both kicked off significant iPad sales. First, Staples is taking $100 off all iPad Air WiFi models when you enter coupon code 79449 at checkout. That means the entry-level 16GB model is only $399, which is $20 less then Apple charges for it in refurbished condition. At the time of posting, all storage capacities except for the 128GB model are available in both Space Gray and Silver.

Next, Best Buy is knocking $50 off iPad mini with retina display. Both WiFi and cellular (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint) models are included in this sale. That drops the 16GB WiFi model down to $349.99. Keep in mind that you can save an additional $50 on these sale prices if you have access to a .edu email address.

If you’re not interested in paying up for Apple’s latest and greatest iPads, then you may want to wait for Target’s $199 iPad mini sale that we have a feeling may kick off next week.

Save 30% on an AppleCare Protection Plan for your 13 or 15-inch MacBook

applecare-box

Even the biggest critics of warrantees generally agree that AppleCare for Macs is a worthwhile investment if you have the room in your budget. In fact, it consistently pummels competition in Consumer Reports’ yearly tech support survey.

applecare-mac
AppleCare for Macs extends the original 1-year hardware and 90-day phone support to 3-years. This is extremely valuable for Mac owners since these beautiful laptops are nearly impossible to repair for the average consumer and out-of-pocket repairs are extremely costly from Apple. Unfortunately, it does not cover accidental damage to your Mac, but one repair instance is likely to pay for the upfront cost of the plan.

Unlike iPhone and iPad AppleCare Protection Plans, it can be added to any Mac within 1-year of purchase. Each standalone AppleCare box will include a code that you can register online to your Mac’s serial number.

Here’s where to save 30% on AppleCare for 13 and 15-inch MacBooks, which is less than Apple’s .edu pricing: Read more
