People that throw away money on gold Apple Watches usually don’t need deals, but if you’re looking to get an Apple Watch Edition for the holiday, Best Buy has the biggest deal we’ve ever seen on Jony Ive’s immaculate timepiece.
Best Buy is trying its darnedest to live up to its name with a new $100 discount on every Apple Watch model it sells. The deep discount brings the entry-level cost of a 38mm Apple Watch Sport down to just $250.
Black Friday may have handed Apple its strongest Friday sales in history, thanks to third party retailers heavily featuring the company’s products in their own promotions.
According to a note sent out by analyst Trip Chowdhry from Global Equities, the Apple Watch is likely to emerge as the M.V.P. of the shopping holiday — as the result of retailers offering big discounts on the device, as well as free shipping and zero sales tax.
Apple made its refreshed Apple TV available for pre-order earlier this week, and now Best Buy is also accepting pre-orders for the next-gen streaming set-top box.
As with Apple’s official pricing, the 32GB model will set customers back $149.99, while the 64GB version costs $199.99. Best Buy notes that the product will be available for in-store pickup from November 4.
