expiredJust $9 Prime shipped for a new Apple Watch band? Sounds good to me.

Update 6/28 2:00pm): BSCstore (99% feedback rating) via Amazon has big discounts on the MoKo Milanese Loop Apple Watch Band in Silver: 38mm $9.99 and 42mm $6.99 Prime shipped.

We’ve covered it before, Apple’s pricing model on its Watch bands is pretty ludicrous. It’s hard to swallow paying a minimum of $50 when other third-party options can be just as good. This morning, we found a few deals on silicone alternatives that are going to be much easier on your wallet.

The BSCstore (99% positive feedback from 58,000+) via Amazon has the MoKo Apple Watch Sport Band in Black or White for $8.99 Prime shipped. Each color comes with two different-sized lengths to find just the right fit. Rated 4.5/5 stars from over 3,300 Amazon users.

expiredBest Buy’s Memorial Day sale takes up to $200 off select Apple Watch models + bands, prices start at $349

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.
