Look for Store Deals Around the Holidays
Apple itself is notorious for not offering discounts on its products, except for a couple of limited choices for back-to-school buyers and similar situations. But other retailers aren’t as stoic when it comes to discounting Apple products, which means you can find deals on the latest products by looking at stores like Amazon, Target, Best Buy, and many others. The key is knowing what to expect.
First, these retailer deals are limited-time options that typically occur only around the holidays, especially times like Black Friday, as well as three-day weekend holidays (also mark down Amazon Prime Day, which generally happens in the summer).
Second, these deals can take many forms. Few of them are straight percentage discounts, although that can happen. More often, new Apple products are bundled with gift cards or an additional free device. That makes saving money a little trickier, but if it’s something you planned on buying anyway – or you use the gift cards for necessities – then it’s still roundabout savings.
