Verizon Wireless is currently offering the Apple iPad Air 2 Smart Cover in Red, Blue, Pink, White and Black for $14.98 with free shipping. That’s good for $25 off the original list price, $24 less than Amazon, down $3 from our previous mention and the best price that we can find from a reputable seller. The iPad Air 2 Smart Cover is designed to protect your device’s screen while leaving the rear aluminum casing exposed. It has a magnetic hinge that attaches to the side and automatic wake/sleep functionality plus it can support an iPad in landscape mode for “easy” typing. Note: also compatible with the original iPad Air.
Verizon also has Apple’s iPad Air 2 Smart Case in Blue, Red or Soft Pink for $19.98 shipped. This case originally retailed for $79 and still fetches around $70. Today’s deal is $15 less than our previous mention and the lowest price that we can find. This case adds backside protection alongside the same features of the Smart Cover above.
Best Buy offers the Beats by Dr. Dre Solo 2 On-Ear Headphones for $99.99 with free shipping. That’s $100 (50%) less than the original list price and a match for the best we’ve seen.

It’s worth noting that the discounted models are previous generation colors. Today’s deal is part of Best Buy’s 4-Day Presidents’ Day Sale.
Features include leather ear cushions, RemoteTalk cable with microphone and a foldable design. Rated 4.1 out of 5 stars from more than 2,000 Amazon reviewers.

Amazon offers the Philips 60 Watt Equivalent SlimStyle Dimmable A19 LED Light Bulb in Daylight for just $2.97 as an add-on item. That’s about half the price we normally see it and tied with the best price we’ve ever seen on a top tier LED bulb. These always go quick but if you jump in early, you’ll easily save the $3 in electricity cost within the first of its rated 22+ years of life. I like this because it is dimmable and “provides a natural light similar to daylight”. Features:
- This Philips 60 Watt equivalent consumes 10.5 watts of energy, saving you up to $136.13 in energy costs
- Sleek, flat design is ideal for use in wall sconces, table and floor lamps, open pendant or ceiling fixtures
- Extra long lifetime of 22.8 years – reduces the hassle of frequent replacement
- Safe for the environment and your home – durable design and mercury-free
- Dimmable and provides a natural light similar to daylight

Update (2/12 10:50am): AT&T has just announced that existing and new customers who purchase a new iPhone on AT&T Next can “get another one free when adding a second line.”
It’s been a big week for Apple discounts – iPad Pro/mini 4/Air 2, Apple Watch, Apple TV and 12-inch MacBook have all received significant price drops. The glaring holdout was iPhone, but that all changed this morning.
Best Buy has launched the most notable iPhone 6s/Plus offer since Black Friday. Right now you can save $200 on 64GB/128GB iPhone 6s/Plus when purchased on a 2-year Sprint or Verizon contract. That drops the iPhone 6s 64GB down to $99.99 and 128GB to $199.99, iPhone 6s Plus pricing is $100 more on each model. Keep in mind, only existing Sprint and Verizon customers currently on a 2-year plan can upgrade at this pricing.
Not eligible for a 2-year plan? Best Buy is throwing in a free Beats Pill 2.0 with the purchase of iPhone 6s/Plus on an installment plan.
