Apple Stories Today

As a part of its Top Tech 20 Gift Guide for the holiday season, Best Buy is taking $100 off all 9.7-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi configurations in every color. For comparison, we’ve seen slightly stronger discounts on a model-by-model basis in new condition and $125 off in Best Buy’s Black Friday in July sale. Today’s offer is the best available. Free shipping is available across the board.

Here’s a breakdown of pricing:

Apple’s latest iPad Pro features a 9.7-inch Retina display, A9X 64-bit chip, Touch ID, 802.11ac wireless, a four speaker design and up to ten hours of battery life. There is a 12MP iSight camera with 4K video on the back and 5MP FaceTime HD camera on the front. It is compatible with Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard (which by the way, you can currently save 25% on via Best Buy’s impressive accessory sale).

In case you missed it, you can save up to 23% on iPad mini 4 and Air 2 at Target. Oh, and Best Buy announced its free shipping policy for the holiday season.

Target is currently discounting iPad mini 4 and iPad Air 2 in select configurations by as much as 23%. Free shipping is available in all instances or you can opt for in-store pick up. As shown below, Target offers an extra 5% discount for REDcard holders (not a bad idea to sign-up ahead of the holidays, it’s free!). If you’re looking to save big on the larger capacities, these are some of the strongest discounts that we’ve seen. You’ll recall that Apple recently adjusted the pricing structure of nearly its entire lineup, making today’s deal even sweeter.

Here’s a look at the pricing in today’s sale:

The iPad mini 4 features a 7.9-inch 2048-by-1536 Retina display, A8 chip, M8 motion coprocessor, 8MP iSight camera, dual microphones and Touch ID. Meanwhile, Apple’s iPad Air 2 has a 9.7-inch Retina display with 2048×1536 resolution, 10 hours of battery life, 802.11ac wireless and Touch ID.

Apple is hosting an event on Thursday, but we’re only expecting to see new Macs with an iPad refresh coming in the first half of 2017. You might find stronger discounts throughout the holidays but that’s not a guarantee.

Best Buy offers the first generation 42mm Apple Watch Sport in Space Gray (model MJ3T2LL/A) for $219 shipped. For comparison, this model originally sold for $399 and still fetches $280 at Target. Today’s deal is a match of the previous popular deal price and the best available. You can save even further by going with an open-box model in ‘excellent’ condition for $199 (scroll down to buying options).

The first generation Apple Watch connects with your iPhone for notifications, fitness tracking, heart rate monitoring and more. Although the latest model has a few more bells and whistles, it’s tough to beat the popular Space Gray Sport version at this price. Of course, Apple just recently released watchOS 3 that includes a few popular new features and remedies some complaints from the first generation model.


With your savings, pick up a stylish third-party leather Apple Watch Band or Spigen’s popular aluminum dock for $13 Prime shipped.

(Update 10/25 10:03am):

If those Lightning EarPods that came with your iPhone 7 are not cutting it, you may want to consider going Bluetooth. Right now Target offers the Beats by Dre Powerbeats2 Wireless for $99.99 with free shipping. Available in Black or White. That’s half off the original list price and about $40 less than the next best available deal. These headphones feature wireless Bluetooth connectivity (up to 30-ft), 6-hour rechargeable battery, RemoteTalk, and are IPX4 sweat resistant. Powerbeats3 are on the horizon but they’re going to sell for $200 whenever they end up hitting store shelves.

Or if you’re not ready to spend that kind of money, you could buy this pair of Aukey Bluetooth headphones from Amazon for just $9.99 Prime shipped with coupon code C4QACOK5 at checkout. Rated 4.1 out of 5 stars from 1,262 Amazon reviewers.

Best Buy offers the Geek Squad Certified Refurbished Apple AirPort Extreme 802.11ac Wireless Base Station for $99.99 shipped. For comparison, it has a list price of $199 in new condition and typically sells for $129 direct from Apple as a refurb (currently out of stock). This is a match for the best offer that we’ve seen on this model.


Apple’s AirPort Extreme pushes out 802.11ac speeds that are up to three times faster than the previous generation model. It has support for dual-band connectivity plus beam-forming technology. On the back side, you’ll find three gigabit ethernet ports and a USB port for file or printer sharing. Geek Squad Refurbished products go through “a rigorous multipoint inspection” that returns products to original factory specifications. More info can be found here. A 90-day parts and labor warranty is included with purchase.

With your savings, outfit your network setup with a new cable modem. We recommend Motorola Arris products for the best experience. The SB6141 is an Amazon best seller, receives great ratings and sells for $70.

Don’t forget, you can save even more on Apple accessories in Best Buy’s rare 25% off promotion.

Best Buy takes 25% off your order when you buy at least 3 eligible smartphone, computer and tablet accessories ($10+). There are literally thousands of different products to choose from so you shouldn’t have any problem reaching the 3 item requirement.

Most notably, official Apple accessories qualify for the discount, while headphones, speakers, Bose products and clearance/open-box items are on the exclusions list. Other eligible standouts include popular products from big names like Belkin, Logitech and mophie. The extra savings will be automatically applied to your order as soon as you add 3 (or more) eligible accessories to your shopping cart. Many of these items (especially the Apple ones) are very rarely discounted, if at all.

Just bought a new iPhone, iPad or Mac? Use today’s offer to buy some must-have accessories. Here are some of the best deals we’ve found so far (again, you must order at least 3 items to get these sale prices):

Daily Steals is offering the new condition iPhone 5s 16GB GSM Unlocked in grey, silver or gold for $279.99 shipped. That’s about the price you would expect to pay for a refurbished model and the lowest we’ve seen.

Note: Unlocked cell phones are compatible with GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile as well as with GSM SIM cards (e.g. H20 and select prepaid carriers). Unlocked cell phones will not work with CDMA Carriers like Sprint, Verizon, Boost or Virgin.

We actually couldn’t find another retailer offering a new one, but as a pricing comparison the iPhone SE unlocked starts at $399 at Target and other retailers.  So whether you’re looking for your kids first iPhone or an emergency/backup phone this is a great choice. This small sleek phone can call 911 in case of an emergency even without a sim card, has GPS (both unlike an iPod touch) and “find my iPhone” capabilities for tracking and runs the latest iOS 10 software.

If you’re more interested in the idea of a prepaid phone, you can grab Straight Talk’s iPhone 5s 16GB 4G LTE for $149 shipped right now. You can get a great deal on case for it too. eBay has the OtterBox Commuter Wallet Series right now for only $15 shipped
