The iPad mini 3 isn’t the best iPad mini you can buy, but it’s still pretty good at what it does. Not only does it feature a modest A7 processor, but it was also the first iPad mini to feature Touch ID and support Apple Pay.
The unit has since been discontinued, after being replaced by the iPad mini 4, but at $200-$250 off, it’s worth considering, especially when it’s being used by someone who doesn’t necessarily need to have the latest and greatest. Read More

When it comes to deals, Best Buy is far and away the spot that you want to be this winter. I’m never one to get caught up in so-called deals, and generally find them to be a bit underwhelming, but there’s no denying that you can rack up some significant savings by shopping for Apple Products at Best Buy this year.
One of the latest examples of the insane savings that can be had at Best Buy is with Apple’s recently released Beats Pill+ speakers. These speakers retail for $229.95, but you can score one today for $92 off at only $137.99. That’s a huge savings, especially for an Apple product that was just released. Read More

Best Buy is now offering Apple’s super-svelte and forward-thinking 12″ Retina MacBook for only $999. That’s $300 off the original $1299 asking price.
This is definitely one of the best deals that I’ve seen thus far, and it even eclipses many of the iPad and Apple Watch deals that we’ve seen. If you’re in the market for an ultra-portable machine, then the 12″ MacBook should definitely be on your radar at this price. Read More

Best Buy has a tempting offer this holiday season, selling Apple’s entry-level iPhone 6s with sixteen gigabytes of storage for just one buck, normally $199 on-contract.
The catch? You have to sign up for a new two-year contract with Verizon or Sprint. Despite the requirement to commit your soul to Verizon or Sprint for the next 24 months, you’re still getting a fair deal on Apple’s latest handset, which starts from $649 off-contract on the Apple Online Store.

A Best Buy spokeswoman told Recode that “we remain invested in MCX,” but she would not comment on when CurrentC will be available to the public and if the electronics retailer would accept it at launch. “We are actively monitoring their pilots,” she said. “It’s too early to declare whether we will take it at launch.” Read More
