If you are already an avid Mac user, then you should know that Apple hardly ever puts its wares out on sale. In fact, the tech giant has opted out of all sales for 2015 but that doesn't mean you won't find a good Mac bargain in your friendly neighborhood store. Cyber Monday (and often the days leading up to it and after it) is the only day out of the whole year where you can find cash off on your favorite Apple gadgets. Here're a few things that you might find:
ZDNet and MacRumors have this to say for the Mac Air, which to this day, remains a favorite among highly mobile professionals who don't want to lug around a bulky and heavy laptop.The best deals are currently coming from Best Buy (11-inch 1.6GHz/4GB/128GB - $774, $125 off) and B&H Photo (11-inch 1.6GHz/4GB/256GB - $979, $120 off; 13-inch 1.6GHz/4GB/128GB - $879, $120 off; 13-inch 1.6GHz/4GB256GB - $1,079, $120 off).
Interestingly, you'll find an even cheaper price on eBay for $729. For the 13-inch Air, regional electronics retailer Micro Center will be taking $100 off of the normal retail price.
MacBook has good deals from Amazon and B&H, Best Buy and Rakuten ($1,149.99 for 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD). B&H has a $170 discount on the more expensive units at $1,429.
If you're looking for a pricier and heavy duty MacBook Pro, look at B&H Photo (13-inch 2.7GHz/8GB/128GB - $1,179, $150 off). Best Buy, B&H Photo, and MacMall have the 13-inch 2.7GHz/8GB/256GB for $1,349.99 at $150 off.
B&H Photo also has the following deals: 13-inch 2.9GHz/8GB/512GB - $1,599, $200 off; 15-inch 2.2GHz/16GB/256GB - $1,699, $300 off; 15-inch 2.5GHz/16GB/512GB - $2,149, $350 off.
How about owning an iPhone for less? This will never happen, at least not for this year's Black Friday madness, but you can get gift cards for purchasing at these stores:
Get an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus from Target on a device installment payment plan from Verizon, Sprint, or AT&T, and you'll get a special $250 Target gift card.
If you get this deal from Walmart, that is, an iPhone 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, or 6s Plus with an AT&T Next or a Verizon device payment plan, get $200 off via a $100 bill credit and a $100 Walmart gift card.
