Apple deals are harder and harder to spot, but our expert commerce team continuously tracks prices, sales, and deals throughout the week. That includes the best discounts on AirPods, iPad tablets, iPhone smartphones, Apple Watch, MacBook laptops, and more. Plus, we’re always on the lookout for deals on Apple accessories, so you’ll find everything you need in our comprehensive coverage.

In this guide, we’re going to show you all the top deals on Apple’s best-selling products we’ve found. There are so many great Apple deals that are available right now, and we’ll share all the best ones.

Featured deals in this article:

Whether you’re looking to find the best iPhone deals, a new Mac, the latest Apple Watch, an Apple iPad mini, a new pair of Apple AirPods on sale, or you want to make your first foray into the Apple ecosystem, we found so many great sales that will save you money.

We’ve highlighted some of the best Apple deals available this month across all the top retailers. That includes Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, B&H, and more. There are currently savings available of up to 40% off some of the top devices that Apple makes.

One of the hottest sales right now among our readers is an opportunity to get an Apple Watch Series 9 starting at $329, down from $399. That’s a great price, and tons of different sizes and band options are up to $100 off. The Apple Watch SE is near an all-time low as well, with prices starting at $189.

You can also pick up an Apple Watch Ultra 2 for $779.99, but that’s not a great deal. We recommend waiting until it’s closer to $700 before you buy one.

Another super-popular sale right now is the M3 MacBook Air, which is down to $999. I thought I was getting a great deal when I bought my M2 MacBook Air for $1,099, but this is obviously even better. Of note, the M2 MacBook Air 15-inch is only $999.99 at Best Buy if you want a larger display.

Those sales are all great, but the hottest Apple deal right now is on AirTag Bluetooth trackers. These awesome little accessories are must-haves for every Apple fan. The only issue is that they’re a bit expensive, with a retail price of $29 each. If you pick up a 4-pack while it’s on sale at the lowest price ever, you’ll only pay $19.75 per AirTag!

This article brings you a roundup of all the best deals on the most popular and latest devices in Apple’s lineup you can find right now.

Apple AirPods on sale

Apple’s AirPods are the perfect wireless headphones for Apple fans. They support features like automatic device switching, Spatial Audio, and more.

We have an exhaustive guide covering all the best AirPods deals you can find online right now. But if you just want to take a quick peek at the latest AirPods sales from top online retailers, you’ll find them all right here.

AirPods Pro

Why we love AirPods Pro

  • Amazing noise-cancellation
  • The recharging case is perfect for on-the-go usage
  • Audio performance is very good
  • The silicon tips are comfortable and snug

Industry-leading active noise cancellation and excellent sound quality sum up the Apple AirPods Pro. And now, Apple has taken things to the next level with AirPods Pro 2. This model was recently upgraded with a new USB-C charging case, and you can already catch it on sale with a deep discount.

Of note, there are two different listings right now, so check the current price on both down below.

AirPods Pro 2 instantly pair with other Apple devices, and they support hands-free Siri. Once paired with one Apple device, they’re instantly available to any other device signed in with the same Apple ID. Switching between devices is seamless and automatic. These Apple AirPods also add themselves to the Find My app as soon as they get paired to a device, which helps avoid losing them.

These wireless earbuds are quite impressive with connection range and stability. They also show extremely fast wireless connectivity and unique controls. The controls work by squeezing the sticks on the AirPods. One squeeze for play/pause, two to skip forward, three to skip back, and hold for a moment to switch between ANC mode and Transparency mode.

And if you’re looking for an entire guide on only the best AirPods deals, don’t miss our big roundup.

ANC stands for active noise cancellation, which is useful for suppressing sounds and noises around you. Transparency mode utilizes external microphones to tune in on conversations around you without taking out your earbuds. Another major audio is Spatial Audio, Apple’s special implementation of 3D sound, using the movement sensors in the AirPods to place sound around you.

The Apple AirPods Pro are also sweat and water-resistant. The only downside of these AirPods appears to be their not-so-great battery life of 4.5 hours per charge from the buds. But overall, they might just be Apple’s best wireless earbuds yet.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

As you can see above, Apple’s $249 AirPods Pro 2 are currently on sale with a discount if you get the new version with a USB-C MagSafe case. That makes now the perfect time to upgrade your older model or experience AirPods Pro for the first time.

Or, if you want to spend even less, renewed AirPods Pro 1st-Gen start at just $114.99, depending on what condition you get them in. Whether you choose excellent, good, or just acceptable, you can return them for a full refund if there are any issues.

Apple’s current-generation AirPods Pro 2 model isn’t a huge upgrade over the original. That being said, it does offer some nice upgrades. You get the newer H2 chip with better active noise cancelling tech, plus volume controls on the stems. There’s also a MagSafe charging case that supports Find My as well as four different types of charging: USB-C, MagSafe, Apple Watch chargers, and regular Qi wireless chargers.

All in all, AirPods Pro 2 are clearly the best Bluetooth earbuds that Apple has ever released. They’re worth every penny at Apple’s $249 retail price, but you’ll never pay that much if you take advantage of the deals we’ve highlighted in this guide.

AirPods 3

Why we love AirPods 3

  • Improved audio quality
  • Sound isolation
  • Available MagSafe Charging Case

The third-generation Apple AirPods were released in October 2021. These new AirPods 3 bring some of the features of the AirPods Pro to the traditional AirPods line. They feature Apple’s H1 chip and Spatial Audio, plus they’re sweat and water-resistant.

When fully charged, you get up to 6 hours of playtime and up to 30 hours with the MagSafe wireless charging case. They do not have noise-cancellation but shorter stems, force control, and adaptive EQ to automatically tune music to your ears.

Of note, the AirPods 3 have better battery life than the AirPods Pro. AirPods 3 are also included in our best AirPods deals and sales guide.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

We should note that this is the first time since last month that AirPods 3 have been discounted. It’s also the first time in more than a month that AirPods 3 are back in stock on Amazon. This isn’t a big discount though, so you might want to wait for a better opportunity.

They’ve already sold out and reappeared once since popping up earlier this week, and we have little doubt that they’ll sell out again. If they’re out of stock when you check, it’s not a bad idea to check back later in the day or the following day. Like AirPods 2, Apple’s 3rd-Gen AirPods might be in and out of stock for the foreseeable future at Amazon.

If you do miss the aforementioned deal, there’s another opportunity to save.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

Amazon currently has renewed AirPods 3 with MagSafe Charging Case in stock for as little as $89.96, depending on whether you want them in “acceptable,” “good,” or “excellent” condition.

In either case, these headphones are included in the Amazon Renewed program. That means you have 90 days to decide whether or not you want to keep them. If you choose not to, you can return them for a full refund, no questions asked.

Remember, this renewed model is the $179 version with the MagSafe case, not the $169 version with the normal Lightning case that’s on sale above in new condition. That means you can save as much as $40, depending on which condition you choose.

AirPods 2

AirPods 2nd Generation
Apple’s 2nd-generation AirPods earbuds.

Why we love AirPods 2

  • Apple’s cheapest AirPods
  • Great integration with iPhone and iPad
  • Long battery life

The AirPods 2 are the most affordable AirPods on the market. They were first released in 2016 and immediately kickstarted the true wireless earbuds revolution.

These wireless earbuds are powered by Apple’s H1 chip for fast wireless connectivity with Apple devices. They offer five hours of battery life from the buds per charge and up to 24 hours of listening time with the included charging case.

They also possess the ability to instantly pair with your iPhone or automatically switch pairing to another of your Apple products the moment you play something on that device. These headphones support hands-free Siri, audio sharing, and the Find My feature on iPhones. You can get these AirPods with or without wireless charging.

However, these AirPods do not support Spatial Audio, ANC mode, or Transparency mode. They can feel a bit outdated, but they are still a great set of earphones. And if you can catch them in stock, they’re on sale with a big discount right now at both Amazon and Walmart.

This model keeps selling out, but it almost always appears back in stock the next day. Be sure to check back often if you miss it.

Apple AirPods Max

Why we love the AirPods Max

  • Mesh headband is the most comfortable we’ve tried
  • Sound performance is absolutely incredible
  • Apple ecosystem makes it effortless to transfer the connection to other devices
  • Spatial Audio is really fun

Apple AirPods Max are Apple’s first over-ear headphones, and they are Apple’s priciest headphones yet.

The AirPods Max has great noise cancellation and highly impressive sound quality. It also offers quick pairing with other Apple products, shares audio with other AirPods, and automatically switches between devices signed in with the same Apple ID. They support hands-free Siri and the Find My app. The AirPods Max features Apple’s powerful H1 chip, nine microphones, and 40mm drivers.

They provide a superb listening experience with Spatial sound and top-notch active noise cancellation. The AirPods Max has a battery life of about 20 hours. The headband is stainless steel (with a soft-touch finish), the earcups are aluminum, and there’s a special mesh fabric when the headband actually touches your head and over the earpads.

The Apple AirPods Max comes in five colors: Silver, Pink, Space Grey, Green, and Sky Blue. All colors come with at least a two-tone finish, with the headband and earcups in different hues and meshes that complement those.

The right ear cup houses the headphones’ only two controls: A wheel similar to the one found on an Apple Watch but larger, and another button. The wheel adjusts the volume and play/pause/skip, while the other button switches between ANC mode and transparency mode.

All five colors are currently on sale at Amazon if you hurry! If you want our pick on the best AirPods overall, you can read our guide and comparison and come back here to find the best deal.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

It’s important to note that AirPods Max always have some sort of discount off the $549 retail price. In our opinion, you should wait until the price drops to between $449 and $479.

If you spend any more than $479, you’re not getting a good deal on AirPods Max. They sound amazing, and Apple’s noise cancelling tech is top-notch, but they’re still not worth overpaying for when comparable models from Sony and Bose cost much less. Also, the new Sonos Ace headphones are a great option at $449.

Apple AirTag deals

Apple AirTag Bluetooth TrackerImage source: Maren Estrada for BGR

Bluetooth trackers have been popular for a while now. But as is often the case, Apple turbocharged the item-finder market when it first introduced the Apple AirTag.

We’ve seen this story play out 100 times before. Apple launches something that offers a fresh new take on an existing product, and people go wild. Now, Apple AirTag trackers are likely the best-selling Bluetooth tracking devices on the planet.

Best of all, Apple AirTag 4-packs are on sale with a big discount right now at Amazon and Walmart. You can also find the same great AirTag deal at Best Buy, but the discounted price is sometimes only available if you subscribe to Best Buy Plus.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

It’s actually quite brilliant how the AirTag works.

Instead of relying solely on a one-to-one Bluetooth connection that might help you find something in your immediate vicinity, AirTags connect anonymously to any Apple devices within range. They then securely transmit their location back to the owner.

That means you can look in the Find My app and see your AirTag’s location just about anywhere, as long as someone with an iPhone, iPad, or other Apple device is nearby.

Apple’s AirTag is great for tracking luggage when you travel, your purse or backpack, car keys, or even a pet. Definitely grab a few while they’re discounted at Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart.

Best Apple iPad Deals

Like the iPhone experience but want a bigger screen from time to time? The iPad is the way to go. Check out the best iPad deals we could find below.

Apple iPad

There are so many iPad deals available right now, and you can enjoy discounts on whichever iPad you want. You can find the iPad 9th-Gen, iPad 10th-Gen, iPad Air, and iPad Pro all on sale at the lowest prices of the season.

Among them, there’s no question that the 9th-generation iPad is the most popular model on sale right now. This model was discontinued when Apple announced the new M4 iPad Pro and M2 iPad Air, so you won’t be able to find it in stock for much longer.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

When it comes to Apple deals, the lowest prices are often the most appealing. Currently, Apple’s iPad 9th-Gen and iPad 10th-Gen are on sale with discounts of up to $100 depending on which model, colorway, and storage option you choose.

Apple iPad Air

The new iPad Air sports a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina display with True Tone, P3 wide color, and an anti-reflective coating. There’s also now a larger version that comes with a 13-inch screen. The 13-inch iPad Air was added to Apple’s lineup in May 2024, marking the first time that Apple offered two different iPad Air models in different sizes, just like the iPad Pro line.

The iPad Air also comes with Apple’s M2 chip, 8GB of RAM, a minimum of 128GB of storage, and stereo speakers. For image capturing and video calls, it has a 12MP wide-angle primary camera on the back and a 12MP FaceTime Camera. Touch ID and Apple Pay offer secure login and payment.

Also, the M2 iPad Air lineup works with an Apple pencil and magic keyboard. The Touch ID is built into the top button, allowing app sign-ins and secure payments with your fingerprint.

Apple’s M2 iPad Air comes in four colors: Blue, Purple, Starlight, and Space Gray. Prices start at $599 for the 11-inch iPad Air and $799 for the 13-inch iPad Air. Discounts are still difficult to come by since this model is so new, but we did find the larger 13-inch iPad Air on sale with a $50 discount.

Now that the M2 iPad Air is here, Apple has obviously discontinued the older M1 iPad Air model. If you hurry, however, you might be able to find the previous-generation Air in stock.

Until it sells out, the older M1 iPad Air starts at just $399 at both Amazon and Walmart. That’s a massive $200 discount, and it’s the lowest price ever for this tablet.

M4 iPad Pro 11-inch

M4 iPad Pro tablets

The M4 iPad Pro is one of Apple’s most powerful tablets yet. Its screen is among the best in terms of color accuracy, contrast, and brightness. With its M4 chip, it packs as much power as a desktop PC.

The 11-inch Ultra Retina XDR display delivers true-to-life detail with a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, making it perfect for watching your favorite movies and shows and viewing and editing HDR photos and videos. The iPad Pro also utilizes advanced display technologies such as ProMotion, True Tone, and P3 wide color.

Of note, this is the first time an OLED screen has ever been included on any iPad. What’s more, it’s Apple’s next-gen Tandem OLED, which uses two layers of LEDs for increased brightness and deeper blacks.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

This iPad Pro (M4, 2024) is equipped with a remarkable array of speakers, with drivers in all four corners, which adjust their output depending on the device’s orientation to give the best balance and produce a solid stereo effect. The iPad Pro works perfectly with the Apple Pencil and the Magic Keyboard.

Even though this model is so new, you can already save some money on the M4 iPad Pro 11-inch.

M4 iPad Pro 13-inch

If you want the best of the best — and you’re willing to pay the price — the M4 iPad Pro 13-inch tablet is as good as it gets.

The new iPad Pro comes with an M4 chip, making it faster and more powerful than any other tablet on the planet. This boasts a big and beautiful Ultra Retina XDR display with ProMotion, True Tone, and P3 wide color. There are 12MP cameras on the front and back, plus a LiDAR scanner that’s built into the rear camera module.

It has an M4 chip with a 9 or 10-core CPU and a 10-core GPU. Super-fast Wi-Fi 6E and Thunderbolt connectivity make it feel even faster.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

This is, quite simply, the most impressive iPad ever. In fact, it’s the most impressive tablet that any company has ever made, hands down. The only problem is obviously the price since the entry-level model with 256GB of storage starts at a whopping $1,299. Keep your eyes peeled, though, because it’s bound to start getting some discounts soon.

Apple iPad mini

Apple’s 6th-generation compact iPad mini tablet packs an 8.3-inch Liquid Retina display with True Tone, Apple’s A15 Bionic chip, and Apple pencil support Wi-Fi 6 and 5G support. There’s a 12MP wide-angle back camera and a 12MP ultra-wide camera on the front, Touch ID, and Apple Pay.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

The iPad Mini comes in four colors: Starlight, Purple, Space Gray, and Pink.

Best Apple Watch sales

The Apple Watch is one of the best smartwatches on the market. It is useful for fitness and health tracking, connecting with loved ones on the go, can be used to locate lost Apple devices, stream songs with Apple Music, and make payments with Apple Pay, and the look is also customizable.

Apple Watch Series 9 & Ultra 2

If you’re shopping for the latest and greatest Apple Watch models, we have some fantastic news. All of Apple’s current Watch models are on sale with discounts right now.

The new Apple Watch Series 9 starts at $399 when you buy it from most retailers. That is, of course, the same price as the previous-generation model. But over at Amazon, the new Apple Watch Series 9 is down to as little as $307.11 on sale. That’s within $8 of the best price ever for Apple’s current-generation model.

Also of note, both the Apple Watch Series 9 and Apple Watch Ultra 2 were banned from being sold with pulse oximetry in the US following a patent dispute. That means the version you can buy right now doesn’t have a blood oxygen sensor.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

If you want the biggest and best model, the new Apple Watch Ultra 2 is obviously the way to go.

This version features an even brighter OLED display as the first-generation model, plus new, more accurate health sensors. It still costs $799 despite the upgrades, but it’s discounted at Amazon. Currently, this model is available for $779.99 in several different band options.

As we noted before, however, this isn’t a particularly good deal. Definitely wait until the Apple Watch Ultra is at least $50 off before you get one. Sometimes, a few colorways actually drop to prices closer to $700, so that’s something to keep an eye out for.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

We have a separate guide covering all the best Apple Watch deals online right now. Definitely bookmark it and check back often if you’re in the market for a new Apple Watch. We update it live every time there’s a new Apple Watch sale!

Where to buy the Apple Watch on contract

If you want to get the Apple Watch but don’t want to pay for it upfront, there are tons of great deals. For those living in the US, these are some of the best deals you can find right now. These carriers let you pay for the cellular model of the Apple Watch in installments:

  • T-Mobile: $20.84 per month (41mm), $22.09 per month (45mm) for 24 months
  • AT&T: $13.89 per month (41mm), $14.73 per month (45mm) for 36 months
  • Verizon: $13.88 per month (41mm), $14.72 per month (45mm) for 36 months

If you want to try to find good deals on older watch models, the Apple Watch Series 8 starts at $299 right now. Of note, you might need to click the “see all buying options” link on Amazon to get that price.

Also, several colorways are already sold out since the new Series 9 model is out. Plus, the Series 9 is on sale for even less than the previous-generation model right now. That means there’s really no reason to buy a Series 8.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

The first-generation Apple Watch Ultra was Apple’s debut rugged smartwatch, and renewed models are still on sale at Amazon starting at $495. That makes now the perfect time to see why the new Apple Watch Ultra is Apple’s best and most powerful watch ever.

You should be aware that these deals keep coming and going, so check back often if you miss the current sale. Just like the Apple Watch Series 8 deals mentioned above, these Ultra deals keep selling out and then reappearing.

If you don’t see a discount when you check today, be sure to check back tomorrow.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

Of course, Apple’s newer smartwatch models have deep discounts right now. With that in mind, it might be a better idea to just get a current-generation Apple Watch.

Apple Watch SE

Apple Watch SE with peach coloured straps
Apple Watch SE.

The Apple Watch SE is one of the most affordable Apple watches. This Apple Watch sports an S8 chipset and a better battery life than the more expensive models.

Apple released the SE series so that the Apple Watch would be available to a much wider range of people. After all, not everyone can afford to spend $399 or more on a smartwatch.

I also think the Apple Watch SE is a great option for parents to give to their young kids. You can set it up on your iPhone, so don’t worry about having to buy a new iPhone for your young child. Then, you can keep track of them no matter where they are.

Right now is a great time to pick up a 2nd-generation Apple Watch SE because it goes on sale all the time.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

If you miss that sale, you can often save some money by ordering one from Best Buy. This sale comes and goes all the time, so be sure to check back in a couple of weeks if you miss it.

Best Mac Deals

Mac computers are an excellent choice if you’re searching for a new desktop computer or PC. Apple has announced two new additions to its MacBook lineup, the new MacBook Air (2022) and the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro computers equipped with M2 chips.

However, there are still great deals on the M1 and M2-equipped models of the Apple MacBook Air and Apple MacBook Pro. Also, be sure to check our big roundup for the best laptop deals you can find this month.

Apple MacBook Air deals

Apple M2 MacBook Air 15-InchImage source: Christian de Looper for BGR

This Apple M1 MacBook Air is highly recommended for creatives on a budget. This version of the MacBook Air sports Apple’s in-house M1 chip that replaces the Intel processors Apple MacBooks used to run on. It has an excellent battery life of up to eighteen hours, a Magic Keyboard, and a Touch ID.

The 13-inch Apple MacBook Air is a tremendous improvement on older Intel models of the MacBook Air, which often came across as watered-down versions of their MacBook Pro counterparts.

At the time of this writing, the M1 MacBook Air was on sale for just $699 instead of $999. That sets a new all-time low for this wildly popular Apple laptop. It’s important to note that this model has been discontinued by Apple, however. That means once Walmart sells out of its inventory, the M1 MacBook Air is gone for good.

Of note, the newer M3 MacBook Air lineup is now available. It was released in early March 2024, and you’ll find both 13-inch and 15-inch models in stock and ready to ship.

Apple’s upgraded M3 chip is faster and more efficient than the M1 from 2020. The new chip offers an 8-core CPU along with up to a 10-core GPU. Also of note, the newer MacBook Air supports up to 24GB of unified memory. That’s way more RAM than you could get in the previous-generation model.

Amazon Logo See Pricing

The added power is great, and we love the ultra-thin design of the M3 MacBook Air. But our favorite feature has to be the battery, which offers up to 18 hours of battery life per charge.

Apple’s M3 MacBook Air 13-inch retail price starts at $1,099, while the M3 MacBook Air 15-inch starts at $1,299. Right now, however, both models have discounts so you can save up to $110 depending on which size and storage options you choose.

Apple 14.2-inch MacBook Pro (M3 Pro, 2023)

The new Apple MacBook Pro 14.2-inch (2023) is a huge step up from the old Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch (2020). Apple updated its older M-series chips to the greatly improved M3 Pro and M3 Max chips, which contribute to the Apple MacBook Pro’s 14.2-inch very impressive performance.

This MacBook Pro also offers excellent battery life, a 14.2-inch Liquid Retina display, and a good selection of ports. It is a great laptop for creative professionals, and it’s discounted right now on Amazon.

Apple 16.2-inch MacBook Pro (M3 Pro/M3 Max, 2023)

In addition to its M3 Pro and M3 Max chips, 16.2-inch Liquid Retina display, and a better selection of ports than its predecessor, the 16.2-inch Apple MacBook Pro comes with an even larger screen and a better battery life of up to 21 hours than the 14-inch MacBook Pro model.

These are available in Space Black and Silver color configurations. And for the first time, there are discounts available on Apple’s most powerful MacBook laptop ever.

Beats deals on headphones and earbuds

Why we love Beats

  • Excellent sound quality
  • Impressive battery life
  • More variety than Apple’s AirPods lineup

All those AirPods deals are fantastic, but AirPods aren’t the only headphones that Apple sells.

There are several reasons to choose Beats over AirPods, but the two biggest ones are pretty straightforward. First, Beats headphones are less expensive than AirPods. And second, Beats offers a bit more variety.

One of the best examples comes in the form of the new Beats Studio Pro noise cancelling headphones. You can spend $549 on AirPods Max, or you can get these brand-new Beats ANC over-ear headphones for $349.99 — and that doesn’t even take into account the huge discount that you can get right now.

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

It’s the same story with the newest noise cancelling earbuds model from Beats.

They’re called Beats Studio Buds+, and they retail for $169.95 compared to AirPod Pro 2 at $249. Plus, they have a huge discount right now — and they look so cool in Apple’s new transparent colorway!

Amazon Logo Available on Amazon

More Beats headphones models are also on sale right now, so definitely check out these deals.

And last but certainly not least, you can pick up Apple’s new Beats Solo 4 headphones if you want that patented Beats bass without spending a lot of money on active noise cancelling. After all, can you really hear any noise around you when you’ve got the volume turned up, and you’re listening to music?

Beats Solo 4 headphones are available right now, and you can already get a discount.

Deals on Apple accessories

This extensive guide on the best Apple deals focuses mainly on Apple’s core products, such as iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, AirPods, and so on. Of course, you’ll never use those devices to the fullest without also picking up some must-have Apple accessories.

BGR has a separate guide covering the best cheap Apple deals under $100. In there, you’ll find deep discounts on things like chargers, cables, iPhone cases, iPad covers, Apple Watch bands, and so much more.

Below, you’ll find a few of the current deals we have listed in that big roundup. Be sure to visit the full guide for more.

Can you negotiate with Apple?

Yes, you can negotiate prices at the Apple Store. Aside from regular qualified discounts (business, educational, government, etc.), Apple can price-match competitor stores up to 10% off on products with the same SKU.

That means if a store like Amazon or Best Buy is offering a 7% discount on an Apple product, the Apple Store can match the sale price. But if a competitor is offering a bigger discount of let’s say 15% off, Apple can only offer you a 10% discount due to the limitations of the company’s price-matching policy.

Does Apple have back-to-school deals?

Yes. Apple holds a back-to-school promotion known as the Higher Education Offer. This promotion is held yearly, and a free product (usually AirPods) is given away with qualifying purchases.

When are the best deals available from Apple?

You can get the best Apple deals on huge annual sales days/ timeframes like Cyber Monday, Black Friday, and Prime Day. Regardless, it is possible to find excellent discounts on Apple products throughout the year. This article is a compilation of all the best Apple deals available right now.

Does Apple ever have sales?

Apple isn’t known to have any sales. However, you can get discounts on products purchased in the Apple store and even online. A good tip is to use your Apple card and purchase Apple gift cards at stores where they are sold at discounted prices.

Will Apple give away free AirPods again?

Apple offered free AirPods to students and teachers who bought an iPad or Macbook in its back-to-school sale. That offer ended in March 2022, but it’s entirely possible it could come back at some point.

Is it better to buy at Apple or Best Buy?

Many people like shopping at Apple stores for several different reasons. But it’s always better to buy Apple products from retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon.

Apple simply never offers any discounts on its products. The best you can hope for is an Apple gift card with your purchase during Black Friday and Cyber Week.
