We thought Amazon’s $29.01 price cut on the new 10.2-inch iPad was good. But its discounts on Apple Watch Series 5 are even better. So good, in fact, that you’d be crazy to buy from Apple.
Save on Apple Watch Series 5
These are the Apple Watch Series 5 models currently available at a discount:
- 40mm aluminum Series 5 GPS with black Sport band — $384.99 (down from $399)
- 44mm aluminum Series 5 GPS with white Sport band — $414.99 (down from $429)
- 44mm stainless steel Series 5 GPS + Cellular with black Sport band — $699 (down from $749)
- 44mm stainless steel Series 5 GPS + Cellular with black Milanese Loop — $749 (down from $799)
Many other Series 5 models are also discounted by $50 when you take out an Amazon Rewards credit card. You can save even more (up to $100) by picking up an Apple Watch Series 4 instead.
Available September 20
Amazon is still promising September 20 delivery for some configurations. That’s the same date Apple will begin delivering preorders. But you’ll probably need to order fast.
It is extremely rare that popular Apple products are discounted before they even start shipping. It’s unlikely we’ll see more discounts like these anytime soon, so take advantage while you can.
