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.
