black friday best buy

In an effort to drum up sales during the summer slump, Best Buy has announced that it will be hosting a “Black Friday in July” sale this weekend where it will be discounting iPads, MacBooks and a number of other products.

The promotion begins on July 24 and runs through the 25th, but those with a My Best Buy account can access the deals today. You can sign up for My Best Buy here, for free, though it does require an email and phone number.

Perhaps the most notable discount is for the iPad Air 2. Best Buy is taking $125 off all Wi-Fi models, meaning you can grab the 16GB version of Apple’s latest tablet for just $375, the 64GB version for $475, or the 128GB for $575 .

 

Other deals include a 2.2GHz 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro (16GB of memory and a 256GB SSD) for $1,749.99, a discount of $250, and a promo that allows Sprint users to grab select iPhone 6 and 6 Plus models for up to $200 off.

It’s worth noting that we’re just a few months away from Apple refreshing its iPhone and iPad lines, so it might be smart to hold off. But if you’re in the market now, these are easily some of the best deals we’ve seen on these products.

    Sprint users haha. With those data speeds you might as well try using a potato for data.

      I’ve done the tests. Could confirm that “Potato” yielded faster speeds than “Sprint.”

    Can’t for the life of me get the iPad deal to work. When i try to add it to my cart i get “An exception was thrown from the context of the link named [loadShippingGroupObjects].”

      Uh, begins 7/24…

      *edit, just tried it and it works for me.

    I would have gotten the deal but then I remembered there are probably new iPads coming in like 2-3 months.
