Thought this was a great deal for any student looking for the latest generation NEW MacBook Air! BestBuy currently has the 13" MacBook Air on sale this week for $999 ($100 off regular price) but college students also get an additional $100 off by signing up for the BestBuy back to school promo... after discounts this deal comes to $200 off the Apple regular price!

MacBook Air - $999 (http://bit.ly/13gp5pO)
BestBuy - $100 College Student Coupon (http://bit.ly/14v6QDb)

I hope this deal can help someone!

Any idea on how long the price will remain that low?

As far as I know, the $999 is part of their one week only Sunday flyer.

That's the deal I used when I bought my Macbook Air this past Sunday. Ended up being $962 with tax.

Absolutely did not need a new macbook right now... I am have an Early 2011 Macbook 15" i7 that I love........... but for $899, I couldn't resist picking up a 13" MBA. It was a close call though, as I almost got the 11" for $849. After playing with both 11 and 13 inch models, I decided the extra 2-4 hours of battery life would be worth the $50.

Any idea if Best Buy carries a MBA 13" with 8GB ram?

Good deal, but think I'll pass on the 2013 Air, given the WiFi and blank screen issues. Not looking like a good build year.

Where did you see August 20th? I would think the last day is the 10th?

they do not. i know, i said to myself that i will buy the 8GB ram since i need it, but since bestbuy deal was way too good to pass up i went with a base model.

Yikes... thats a high tax rate!

mine only taxed at 54$ costing me 954

The $100 coupon is valid until 8/17. Would suck if BBY stopped discounting the Air on the 10th...well it would suck for me.

Yes, you are correct. The Student discount is valid till august 17, but the sale for everyone at bestbuy for another 100$ off ended yesterday.

So if you have a student discount code you can now get it for 999

If they had the 8 GB models, that would be great, but it's still a great deal never-the-less.

Does anyone know if they have the 256 GB models, at least, or is it just the base 128 GB?

Just bought one from BB - 4GB/256GB 13" for $1134. Yeah 8GB model would have been good to have but since this is my bedside laptop with occasional moderate work that's not an issue. (With Win8 btw, with OS X 4GB are not enough for my use case.)

It's too bad the sale ended yesterday. I should have picked on up while it was on sale. At least its still lower than Apple right now. 1049.99

Still showing the same price for me... at Best Buy it is $999 (http://bit.ly/16YOhph) and there is a $100 student discount bringing it down to $899.

Yeah, it looks like the others returned to the only $50 off pricing, but the base 13" MBA kept the $100 off. I bought one today to try out for $899 with the .edu coupon :)

the bb deal is certainly a great catch, but remember that it is only $50 or so less than when purchased from apple - assuming you sell your gift card (added hassle, I know). someone feel free to correct my arithmetic if wrong - I did it quickly in my caffeinated head.

The wifi issue has been fixed and I don't know what the blank screen thing is.

Would you recommend selling it?
I figured Mavericks would be a good place to use it, when it comes out, plus other apps. Do you think anything other than Mavericks is worth spending the gift card on?

that really depends person-to-person... if you think you'll eventually spend the $100, then keep it. i recall selling mine last year. of course, mountain lion was a free upgrade for those who bought new macs prior to sept 2012. so far, apple has not mentioned that they'll repeat the offer - therefore keep the card to cover mavericks cost?. the fact remains, whether you sell your gift card or not, the bb offer is a little better than the apple offer (read, a tank of gas better). and if you go through apple, you don't technically have to be enrolled in school and/or have an .edu address.

i don't buy apps/music/movies enough (read, never) to warrant keeping the card. and the gift card only encourages you to spend money. you can also look at it this way: the bts gift card is merely a means for apple to make more money. i'm sure there's market research indicating that people ultimately spend more than the $100 originally given to them. no doubt, the gift cards generate more money for apple than the free ipods did.

Yesterday I went to return my CMBP that I purchased last week.
