Late last month, it was reported that the Apple Watch would be sold at Best Buy stores in August. Sales were said to start today, August 7.
Just as promised, the Apple Watch is now available for sale at Best Buy. The online sales have already begun, and limited in-store sales will begin as participating Best Buy stores open across the country later this morning.
Best Buy has not offered the Apple Watch since its April 24 debut, but now the American consumer electronics retailer is at last making room on its store shelves for Apple’s wrist-worn device.
The Wall Street Journal recently said that Best Buy will begin to offer the Apple Watch in more than a hundred U.S. retail stores, and online, on August 7.
Just a week later, the device will hit Best Buy stores in Canada, according to MobileSyrup. This will expand the device’s footprint in Canada, where it’s been available exclusively through the online and retail Apple Stores from day one.
The Apple Watch is about to get even more mainstream exposure. According to a report by the Wall Street Journal, Apple’s wearable will be sold in Best Buy retail stores later this summer starting on August 7th.
The initial rollout will be limited to 100 stores, but will eventually triple that amount prior to the holiday shopping season.
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, for free, though it does require an email and phone number.
Best Buy announced today that it will begin supporting Apple Pay within its mobile app, effective immediately, and within its stores later this year. This is a major partnership for Apple, as it’s the first one with a member of MCX—the Walmart led consortium of retailers that are backing payment app ‘CurrentC.’
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.”
Hours ahead of Apple’s media event, Reuters reports that one of the biggest Apple product sellers, Best Buy, may not be carrying the Apple Watch at the wearable’s launch in April. Best Buy wouldn’t provide confirmation, however Reuters cites “sources with direct knowledge of the matter.”
If you weren’t able to get a great deal on iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3 during the Black Friday madness, this is your chance to get another shot at it. Best Buy is heavily discounting iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 models by $50 to $100.
All iPad Air 2 models are discounted by $50. 16GB iPad mini 3 models are $50 off, 64GB are $75 off, while all 128GB models are $100. It’s arguably one of the best deals you can get on these devices.
Joining Walmart and other retailers looking to get a head start on next week’s Black Friday festivities, Best Buy today began offering limited-time deals on a number of products. Among those products is a first generation iPad Air, and fifth-gen iPod touch, both of which have been significantly discounted.
For the next three days, Best Buy is taking between $80 and $100 off all iPad Air models—the discount depends on the model you buy. While the original Air is more than a year old now, it still features a newer hardware design and packs plenty of power. The 16GB Wi-Fi-only model is a steal at just $319.
Best Buy, the Richfield, Minnesota headquartered American multinational consumer electronics retailer, is seemingly offering discounts on Apple products on a weekly basis. To boot your week, the company is now offering $100 iTunes Gift Cards for just $85, representing a saving of fifteen bucks on your software and digital media purchases on iTunes.
These physical cards usually leave Best Buy’s warehouse in 1 business day and the retailer is throwing in free shipping to sweeten the deal a bit more…
Right as the United States retailing giant Target announced a significant sale by taking a cool $100 off of the original iPad mini’s $299 price tag, rival Best Buy is mirroring the deal now in the run-up to Father’s Day.
That’s right, you can now pick up an entry-level Wi-Fi-only iPad mini with sixteen gigabytes of storage for just $199 versus Apple’s asking price of $299. LTE variants have been discount, too. The deal is available in select retail locations and does not extend to Best Buy’s online store…
Best Buy, the nation’s popular consumer electronics retailer, is offering latest iPhones with a notable 50 percent discount until this coming Sunday, May 11. The entry-level iPhone 5s model with sixteen gigabytes of storage is now available for $99 after a two-year wireless contract with Verizon or Sprint.
The 16GB iPhone 5c – which normally costs $99 after a two-year contract over at the Online Apple Store (and through many other carriers/retailers) – will now set you back $49.95 in upfront payment. Higher-capacity iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models are half price, too…
Folks looking to score an iPhone 5s on the cheap may want to check out your local Best Buy store. I know it feels like we’re saying this on a weekly basis now, but the retailer is once again holding a sale on Apple’s most popular handset.
This time around, Best Buy is offering a minimum of a $150 gift card for folks looking to trade-in an iPhone 4s or 5 for a new iPhone 5s. And between that and its current $50 off promotion, you could easily score a 16GB model for just $1…
