With Mother’s Day literally around the corner now, and T-Mobile the only major electronics retailer eager to close a few mutually beneficial deals, it might feel like you’re running out of time to find that perfect, hip, affordable gift.
But Best Buy comes to the rescue of at least Apple devotees in the eleventh hour, rebooting its already customary “iWatch” discounts, as well as marking down all iPad mini 4 configurations by a cool $100.
The 7.9-incher launched last fall as essentially an iPad Air 2 in a more compact body starts at $300 after the rebates, with 64GB storage fetching an extra Benjamin, and cellular connectivity setting you back $430, $530 and $630 respectively in 16, 64, and 128GB variants.
Meanwhile, the cheapest Apple Watch models that Cupertino recently trimmed from $350 to $300 are $250 a pop at Best Buy, with 38mm aluminum cases and sport bands. Slightly more robust stainless steel versions go for $450 and up instead of $550, an additional 200 bucks netting you the most stylish Apple Watches BB currently sells, with Milanese Loop and various Modern Buckle Bands.
Overall therefore, you can save $100 across over a dozen configurations of the best-selling wearable device, and $50 for every entry-level model, scoring big points with your fashion and technology-concerned moms after maybe disappointing them one too many times in the past year.
Last but not least, if you’re in the market for an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, and have a working iPhone 5 or newer to trade in, you’ll qualify for a “guaranteed” $250 Best Buy gift card, as long as you’re willing to activate the handheld on a two-year contract, Sprint Lease or monthly installment plan with Verizon, AT&T or Sprint.
