Discounts on Apple iPad, Watch, AirPods 2, and iMac.
Apple products are generally very price drop resistant throughout most of the year, but you can still find deals on specific items with some elbow grease. Better yet, let us do the work for you and we’ll list all the deals we found, right here. Right now, the only deals to be had are a couple of sweet deals on the second-to-latest generation of iPad Pro tablets. These are cheaper than the prices you’ll find at the Apple Store Outlet.
The 2018 Apple iPad is down to its lowest price ever (25% off compared to list price). This model boasts a 9.7″ Retina display, A10 Fusion 64-bit processor, dual cameras, 10-hour battery life, and Apple Pen support.
The Apple Watch Series 3 is back at the lowest price it has ever been. If you don’t need the ECG or other medical capabilities of the Series 4, you’ll be saving $200 by going just one generation back. The Series 3 features an aluminum case that’s waterproof up to 50 meters, built-in heart rate monitor, GPS, and its small, sleek, and looks almost identical to the Series 4.
Apple iMac 27″ Retina 5K Intel Core i5 3.5GHz Quad-Core 8GB RAM, 1TB All-in-One Desktop for $1499.99 (Originally $1999.99)
Save $500 (25% off) on this late 2017 spec model. You’re getting the finest quality monitor (a 27″ 5120×2880 display) and a powerful enough system to back it up along with an extendable 1 year Apple warranty since you’re buying it from an authorized reseller.
Walmart and Amazon have the Apple AirPods 2 back in stock (although Amazon is currently backordered). The new Airpods 2 introduces hands-free Siri, boosts the battery life, and promises faster performance over the previous version. The best thing, though, is that there is no price increase.
Also available is the model with wireless charging case:
If you insist on buy directly from Apple, you should always turn your attention to the Apple Outlet Store first. The items sold here are either refurbished or previous year models that have been discounted between 10%-20%. They are generally priced lower than what you’d find even at the Apple Education Store. You also get a full 1-year Apple warranty just like buying new, and the item is even eligible for AppleCare extended warranty. The only caveat? Your item will ship in a brown box instead of the pretty retail packaging. Apple’s refurbishing process is very strict and the item you will receive will always be in brand spanking new condition, so you’ve really you’ve got nothing to lose.
