We're most likely either:I realize we are probably weeks away from a replacement.....
At these prices, I'd guess we are a week or less away from updates, and venture at least 10% improvement overall, maybe more graphics wise, and new updated keyboard.$949 for base model (usually $1299)
$1249 for 512 m5 model (usuall $1599)

Not necessarily. Best Buy had some big discounts on the 2015 rMB during the holidays 2015. It's more likely that the rMB is about to be updated because it has been exactly one year since the last update. The BB discount is one more reason that an update is likely very soon. What I've heard is that Best Buy has become Apple's defacto "outlet store" where they can sell stuff at a discount without lowering prices online or in their stores.Are Best Buy discounts the bell weather for updates? Any other retailers?
Can you still do the Apple care trick as stated before or is it just 300 dollars off?Back on Sale, but only $300 off rather than $350 as before.
No catch, they've had that sale before, so has Best Buy and B&H Photo. Looks like stock clearance for making way for 2017 model, seems however now a June WWDC release.Went back and forth during the last hour of the sale trying to decide if I wanted to pick up the 512GB Rose Gold model for the wife but decided on passing. I figure at this point I may as well wait for a 2017 refresh. Adorama was only about $30 more due to them not charging tax so worse case scenario I'll pick up the 2017 model from them when it drops and I'll only be out $30 more.
Edit: Just noticing that the sale was originally $350 off in April. Probably would have scooped one up without a second guess at that price, so I guess I'm kinda glad I missed out on that one.
Edit 2: What's the best way to keep track of sales so I don't miss out on the next one?
Fry's seems to have the 512GB model at $1249 with no tax in my state and free shipping. That seems almost too good to be true...I feel like there's a catch here.
