B&H Photo Video offers the Apple iMac Intel Haswell Core i5 3.2GHz 27″ Desktop for $1,299 with free shipping.

It features an Intel Haswell Core i5-4570 3.2GHz quad-core processor, 27″ 2560×1440 IPS LED-backlit LCD, 8GB RAM, 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive, Nvidia GeForce GT 755M 1GB graphics, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, Thunderbolt, media card reader, 720p FaceTime HD camera, and Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).

BOGO iPhone 6s for AT&T

This deal is rather specific, but perfect for iPhone-loving families on AT&T Wireless: Buy an Apple iPhone 6s/6s Plus Smartphone for AT&T on an AT&T Next installment plan, which start at $70/month for 30 months, and get a second phone for free with free shipping when you add it as a second line via an AT&T Next 30-month installment plan. That’s a savings of up to $695 off the installment plan and tied as one of the best deals we’ve seen for these models. Additional line, activation and upgrade fees apply, and you may pay up to $69.51 on the free device before credits are reflected. (Credits start within three billing cycles.) Deal ends August 31.
