    So I decided that I needed a smaller Mac to complement my 15" RMBP, mainly for school.

    I think I found a pretty good deal for a brand new MacBook Air at Best Buy

    13" MacBook Air (Mid 2013)
    1.3GHz, 4GB, 256GB...

    Reg. Price: $1,099.99
    Sale Price: $1,044.99
    Edu Discount: -$150
    Subtotal: $894.99
    Tax: $53.70
    Out the door for $948.69

    In comparison, the exact same model from Apple but refurbished is
    Subtotal: $979.00
    Tax: $58.74
    Total: $1,037.74

    I actually paid $89.05 less for a brand new one from Best Buy!

    Question - did you go in stores for the 2013 inventory?

    You should have stacked the movers coupon, could have paid even less.

    Mover's coupon didn't work for me, wouldn't stack with the college $150 coupon.

    I would've gone for a 11" personally since the 13" isn't that much smaller than the 15".

    Did you buy it in store or apply the coupon online? In store the coupon wouldn't scan.

    Great deal, great choice. 13 isn't much smaller than 15 but I can understand the weight. If only Canada got these deals!!

    Best Buy coupon that comes w/ the mover's pack you can get from USPS. It's 10% off a single item.

    Figures... I wonder if it would be worth the effort to call and ask if they would apply the 10% discount?

    Yes, it was an in store purchase.

    You can get one from USPS. Just ask for a change of address form, they'll give you a packet of forms along w/ some other coupons. You don't have to fill it out there so just take the it and go.
