Update (1/24 10:30am): Black model is no longer available via Amazon, but the Grey/Red version is still in stock. Best Buy continues to offer both colors at the discounted price.
Amazon offers the OtterBox Resurgence iPhone 6/6s 2,600mAh Battery Case for $26.99 with free shipping for Prime members or on orders of $35+. That’s nearly $73 below its retail price and the best we’ve ever seen by $28. It’s very rare to see a name-brand battery case receive this significant of a discount. Available in Black or Grey/Scarlet Red. Rated 3.6 out of 5 stars from 289 Amazon reviewers. You can also find today’s deal at Best Buy.
You now have another option for saving a few bucks on a new MacBook. Apple just began selling its 12-inch ultra-thin laptop in refurbished condition. Prices currently range from $1,099 to $1,489 with free shipping. The entry-level model typically sells for $1,299 in new condition. It features a 2304 x 1440 resolution at 226 pixels per inch, a Force Touch trackpad and redesigned ‘butterfly’ keyboard. Apple refurbished items include a full one-year warranty, are eligible for AppleCare, and from what I’ve seen, generally come in great shape with little to no signs of use.
- Refurbished 12-inch MacBook 1.1GHz Dual-core Intel Core M 256GB: $1,099
- Refurbished 12-inch MacBook 1.3GHz Dual-core Intel Core M 256GB: $1,319
- Refurbished 12-inch MacBook 1.2GHz Dual-core Intel Core M 512GB: $1,359
- Refurbished 12-inch MacBook 1.3GHz Dual-core Intel Core M 512GB: $1,489
These prices are decent if you can’t wait for a deal to come around, but with some patience you should be able to get a new unit near or below Apple’s refurbished prices. For example, the high-end 512GB model is currently on sale for just $1,289.99 (Reg. $1,599) and we’ve seen the 256GB model drop as low as $950 (Reg. $1,299). expand full story
