The name of the game this week is broad sitewide sales. Check out everything from iPads to cables at Groupon, or grab some refurbished hardware at eBay. These and more are in this week’s best Apple deals.

Groupon Apple Event: Up to 70 percent off

A great source for accessories like docking stations, screen protectors and game controllers, Groupon cuts up to 70 percent off a selection of Apple iPhones, iPads, electronics and accessories during its Apple Event Sale. Shipping adds $3.99, but orders of $34.99 or more qualify for free shipping.

Carbon Fiber Pattern Case for iPhone 6/6 Plus for $1

Just need a cheap and simple case? Cell Expert via eBay offers the Carbon Fiber Pattern Hard Case Cover for iPhone 6 Plus in Black for $1.31 with free shipping. (It’s available for the iPhone 6 for a few cents more.) That’s tied with our mention from three weeks ago and $5 below the lowest total price we could find for a similar item.

Apple sale at eBay: Up to 60 percent off

We’re big fans of refurbished Apple gear (though be sure to get a good warranty). And right now, various merchants via eBay are taking up to 60 percent off a selection of new, used, and refurbished iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, and more. (Prices are as marked.) Plus, most orders bag free shipping.

Shhh, Sleep in Seconds for iPhone/iPad/Android for free

iTunes offers downloads of Shhh… Sleep in Seconds for iPhone and iPad for free. That’s a $4 drop, the lowest price we could find, and the first time it’s been available for free in months. This app plays soothing sounds to help you fall asleep, and has a five-star rating with 15 reviews.
