expiredBest Buy 2-Day Sale: iPad mini 2 $250, iMac from $1,000, Pebble Steel $170, much more

Update: Grab an iPad Air 2 128GB LTE for $699.  That’s $130 off of retail and the biggest $ discount we’ve yet seen on the iPad Air 2

Today and tomorrow only, Best Buy is running a sweeping sale on a couple Apple products, HDTVs, and tons of other gadgets. iPad mini 2 is once again back down to $250 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model and even though this sale is becoming quite ubiquitous, it’s still a good deal seeing as Apple charges the same price for this exact model in refurbished condition.

MacBooks go on sale much more often than iMacs, so even though this sale’s discounts of $100-$120 aren’t all-time lows, I would still think about grabbing one if you’re in the market for an Apple desktop computer. If you’re looking to go Retina 5K, then your best bet is Apple’s refurbished store.

Other deals include:

expiredBest Buy 3-day sale: iPad Air $80 off, 16GB WiFi model starts at $320

Update (11/20 2:45pm): Staples iPad deals are now expired, but Best Buy is still offering an $80 discount on iPad Air.

Staples is taking $100 off a couple of Apple’s most popular iPads. The standout deal is a Retina iPad mini A.K.A iPad mini 2 for $199, which is $49 less than Apple charges for the first generation, non-Retina model:

We’re not sure how long these prices will hold so if you’re interested then I would move on the iPad of your choice sooner rather than later.

Note: Best Buy has iPad Air for $80 off, which is obviously less of a discount, but worth noting in case you have gift cards or points to burn.

Less than two weeks ago, Apple began offering its education customers modest iPad discounts, but now Best Buy has stepped up and basically made them irrelevant. The new Best Buy student deals that launched yesterday extend a $50 discount to all iPad Air and Retina iPad mini models, which is up to two and a half times as much as Apple’s edu pricing.

You’ll need to furnish a .edu email address to qualify for these Best Buy discounts, but once you receive your unique coupon code you can choose to make your purchase online or at any retail location. Of course, we recommend following us closely to stay up with all the best iPad deals, but if there aren’t any current deals and you’re in desperate need of an iPad, then Best Buy’s edu pricing is likely your best bet.

Other promotions include $150 off Macs and 30% off Incase MacBook accessories.
