Apple Deals

The days after Thanksgiving are always great for bargain hunters and today is no exception. As usual, Amazon has loads of great deals right now on everything under the sun, and we gathered a few particularly good deals from there and elsewhere in a short set of lists below.

iPhone 5 Deals

By far the best deal on iPhone 5 is for refurbished AT&T GSM models at a whopping $100 discount. That means you can get an iPhone 5 16GB model for just $99 with a standard two-year contract, and 32GB models for $199. The refurbs are available at AT&T’s online store and come in all sizes and colors with free shipping.

See all other iPhone deals at AT&T, all refurb iPhone 5’s are $100 off, refurb iPhone 4S is available for $1 with a contract, and there are even great deals on Android and Windows smartphones if that’s what you’re in the market for.

Refurbished Apple gear is high quality and we recommend them highly for the great discounts complete with a standard warranty. Sure, the refurbed iPhone models may ship with a little scratch or ding, but at a 50% discount I’m guessing most people won’t mind.

Mac Deals

There are quite a few good Mac deals out there today. If you’re near an Apple Store or shop online through Apple you can get about $100 off any Mac model. Best Buy also has good deals in stores, but some of the best deals are coming from Amazon with 16% to 20% off some of the newest MacBooks including the Air, Retina 13″ Pro, and

iPad & iPod Deals

Apple and Best Buy seem to have the best deals out there on iPads and iPod touch.

Apple Store – deals are valid from online store and in stores

  • $41 off iPad with Retina display at Apple Store (online and local)
  • $31 off iPad 2 at Apple Store (online and local)
  • $31 off iPod touch at Apple Store

If you were hoping to find a discount on the iPad Mini, you’ll be disappointed to find out it’s just not happening right now. It’s not just Apple though, no retailers are marking down the Mini, and even the popular competing 7″ tablets from Google and Amazon aren’t discounted either.

Best Buy – deals are valid in store and sometimes online:

  • iPad with retina display at $439 and up
  • iPad 2 at $369 and up
  • iPod touch from $268

Note that some BestBuy items need to be picked up at a store to get the best prices.

More great deals will likely surface as the weekend progresses, we’ll post anything else worthwhile.

    Why nobody ever talks about iPhones without a contract and when an iPhone is with contract why the rate of contract is not mentioned and the fact whether that’s a costly or cheap plan?

    I ordered the Seagate, but when I received it, it was only Windows compatible. I clicked on your link!!! and ordered the one that came up, but it does not work on a Mac.

      All hard drives work on either Windows or Mac. You have to format it to the appropriate file system using Disk Utility on the Mac, or using Convert.exe in Windows.
