As a price comparison, it originally sold for $100 but has readily been available for $70 since early this year. Today’s deal is the lowest price we have ever seen. Also available via Best Buy. In addition to being waterproof, it also features a Bluetooth range of up to 65-ft, an attachable bungee cord and smart functionality via a mobile app. Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars from nearly 400 Amazon reviewers.
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.
