If you’re thinking about getting an iPhone SE or Apple’s new 9.7-inch iPad Pro, you might want to check out the new promotions over at Best Buy. The electronics retailer is currently offering notable discounts and deals on both devices, as well as on the iPhone 6s and Apple Watch.

For starters, if you purchase and activate an iPhone SE with a two-year contract and sign up for a free My Best Buy Mobile account, they’ll throw in a free $50 gift card for good measure. The offer is valid if you get the device on monthly installments, too.

Those who are in the market for Apple’s new 9.7-inch iPad Pro can trade in their existing iPad 2 or newer model and receive a $100 gift card for the new model purchase.

But that’s not all.

How about a cool $300 off a Wi-Fi + Cellular edition of the new iPad Pro on a two-year Verizon plan? Or, buy any iPhone on a two-year Verizon contract and an iPad Pro and you’ll get $350 off.

Both deals are in-store only.

Best Buy is accepting online pre-orders for the new iPhone SE and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro and also has some cool deals for customers who’d purchase an iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus or Apple Watch.

For example, you’ll receive a free Beats Pill 2.0 speaker if you buy/lease and activate a 64GB or 128GB iPhone 6s or iPhone 6s Plus with Sprint Lease or monthly installment plan for Verizon Wireless, AT&T or Sprint.

That particular deal is in-store only.

As for the Apple Watch, they’ve discounted all Apple Watch models by up to $100 from their original prices before Apple slashed the lineup by $50 at the ‘Let us loop you in’ event.

Specifically, you can get a 38mm aluminum Apple Watch Sport model with a Sport band for just $249 at Best Buy ($299 for the larger 42mm model), or $449 for a 38mm stainless steel Apple Watch model with a Sport band (add an extra $50 if you’re picking up a 42mm model).

By comparison, the 38mm aluminum Apple Watch now starts at $299 over at the Apple Store, or $349 for the 42mm model. As for the 38mm stainless steel Apple Watch, that one will now set you back $549 through Apple, or $599 for the 42mm variant.

It’s worth mentioning that these are prices for the stainless steel model with Apple’s new Woven Nylon band while Best Buy currently offers the new band only with Apple Watch Sport models.

On a related note, the Apple Online Store is now offering all new Apple Watch bands that were introduced at Monday’s event with an in-store pickup (select Personal Pickup at checkout).

  • I like the SE more than the iPhone 6.. May even consider downsizing instead of waiting for the 7.

    • rockdude094

      I’d like to see the 7 before moving to a new one. I heard 7’s looking good

      • 9to5Slavery

        No lines, that’s about it

      • Capirexz

        What’s with your Nickname, bro?

      • Prolly has a sucky ass job

      • Yea you are right, I’ll at least wait and see what they have in store. Still don’t plan on getting the bigger phones any more though.

    • xoFoxtail

      That’s what I’m doing. My first iPhone downgrade from the 6s. I’m hoping the SE gets updated every 2 years, it’ll stop me from buying a new phone every year.

    • Andrea Verocio

      apple IMHO left out two of the most important staples in the iPhone SE. The barometric pressure sensor and force touch. I might actually be able to live without force touch but the barometer is useful for so many things. Including but not limited to faster GPS (location) lock times. I really wanted this to be my first iPhone but apple fell short for me 🙁

  • DarekSlaby

    Quick fyi, check Best Buys Open-box deals. I got a 42mm black model with original box and accessories for $238. If they have an open box for more, try to haggle with them. They dropped mine from $280 to $238.

    • Blip dude

      Yup, did that but then decided to Return it. Don’t get wrong, for $240 it’s a great deal, but as of right now the Apple Watch is still missing something. That being said, I’ll be paying attention to the 2nd gen.

      • To me, the Apple Watch is more of a public dev kit rather than a final retail product.

      • The Guy

        Buy why wait an entire year… You could be enjoying the watch now and when the new one comes, sell the old…

      • Blip dude

        . . . Or I can just save my money or even spend it on Something better instead. Sell the old, for what, like $170-$200?? Then still come up with the rest to get a second gen. Thanks, but like I said, while it may be useful, I was still originally correct, a smart watch isn’t a real necessity at this time for me, and the watch itself still has flaws that I know will be improved in Gen 2.

      • The Guy

        So now you’re left with nothing, that makes zero sense… by your mentality you’ll always be screwed because there will always be better in every gen… waiting does nothing and all because you want to save $40 bucks or so, WTF???

      • Blip dude

        Really?? I’m left with nothing, or extra money for possibly something better, watch or otherwise. Of course things will get better, but possibly unlike your mentality (please feel free to correct me on that), it’s not about what’s always going to get better, it’s about what FEELS right. If the Apple Watch 2 FEELS RIGHT, buy, if not wait. Plain and simple. Explain to me how being left with nothing is better than being left with disappointment?? Because I can tell you from experience, they are both not the same in any material perspective.

  • george

    I don’t see how the iPad deal is sweet, even an iPad 2 sells more than $100 used.

  • hurtfulmedicine

    Where’s the daily deals? If you guys stop doing them, point me to the direction where I can find them myself please.

    • Cory Matlock

      I’m wanting to know the same thing.

  • The Guy

    Why does the Bestbuy website say you save $100, the watch is only $299 and $349 regularly… this is false advertising… you’re only saving $50…

  • xoFoxtail

    I just purchased the SE through Best Buy’s website yesterday. I wish I knew about this in-store thing.

  • The Guy

    Geez, this sale didn’t last long and now they cost $50 more than from Apple, lol.
