Score an Apple IPhone X at Best Buy for $699.99.
By Eric Song and IGN Staff
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.
Amazon has just dropped the price on the brand new Airpods 2 to $139 from $159. 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. It’s been out of stock for most of the time, and it has not yet been discounted. It won’t last long on Amazon.
Also available is the model with wireless charging case:
As the crown jewel deal of Best Buy’s current 4-day sale that kicks off today, the Apple iPhone X is discounted by $150. Originally $899.99, today you can get it unlocked for $749.99. If you decide to activate it immediately, you get another $50 discount dropping the price to $699.99, the lowest we’ve ever seen for a brand new, fully warrantied Apple iPhone X.
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.
Now that the new 2019 iPads have been announced, the 2018 iPads are seeing a 25% price drop. This is cheaper than what we saw on Black Friday. The 2018 Apple iPad boasts a 9.7″ Retina display, A10 Fusion 64-bit processor, dual cameras, 10-hour battery life, and Apple Pen support.

Take $100 off the regular price of the 4th generation model iPad Mini. You’re getting it brand new from an authorized reseller with full Apple warranty. If the 9.7″ iPad or 11″+ iPad Pro are too large for you, the 7.9″ Mini might be right up your alley. In my opinion it’s not worth it to pay $100 more for the recently released iPad Mini 5, which improves upon its predecessor with a faster processor and higher megapixel front-facing camera (but at this price offers less storage capacity than the $299 iPad Mini 4).
Save $200 to $400 off instantly on the latest generation MacBook Pro laptops. The more expensive the config, the steeper the discount. The least expensive model is the Apple MacBook Pro 13″ Retina Display with Touch Bar, Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB RAM,, 256GB HDD, and full 1-year warranty.
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.
