    Mavericks is still the best OS if you don't need iStuff integration (my case).

    Just surprised stock was 6 weeks old.

    Not complaining for $1529....(or maybe I am :) )


    Just never bought a Mac from Best Buy before.

    I assume apple will have no issue covering it ...

    Is the best place to buy applecare still BHPhoto ?

    Don't know... in Brazil I've just bought my plan nearly the 1-year expiration date through the online Apple Store. I got the student discount plus a 10% discount for paying by bank transfer (bypassing credit cards). Considering it's Brazil, the final price was pretty good, around USD 270,00, taxes included.

    Best Buy is an authorized retailer, so you'll have no trouble getting service if you decide to take it to an Apple store. Hold on to your receipt regardless. I suggest scanning and making a digital copy of it just in case.

    B&H or Adorama Camera. Same price at both places last time I checked.

    I know, no idea how they can sell it for that.

    Absolute steal.

    Only way to get it better is to get the $1529 in a state with no tax like DE....

    Ah, the benefits of being military. I got apple care for like 150 dollars on base for my 2013 rMBP. Some guy returned the little white box or something.

    A mover's coupon is something you can pick up from your local post office. You have to go in and ask for a change of address packet. You can also do it online, but then you have to pay a couple of bucks IIRC. In either case, you get a little booklet of coupons for various stores and locations. In these forums, the Best Buy 10% is the most commonly talked about since it applies to Apple products.

    Do they require any proof or any information?

    I tried to get the movers coupon twice and both were expired on 11/15 from the post office. Are there newer ones?

    Anyone has an extra one? I went to the post office earlier and they didn't have any.

    Same issue out of date. I assume the newer ones are not yet in full circulation. Might be worth noting the codes on the back are unique. So is not likely one would share their code.

    Best Buy lost out on getting 2 grand from me because they won't honor the out of date code. I called their corporate customer service.

    This is an amazing deal and I have been waiting for such a deal to purchase the product.

    I purchased it for 1699 cause that's a steal and purchased a coupon on eBay for 1.99. I am hoping best buy will let me go back and apply it after I receive it. What do you guys think?

    Best buy won't let you use the coupon. Just tried and a manager can't even over ride it. That makes it not as good of a deal cause most everyone can get student discount anyways. Which is $200 off.

    I'll just wait until next year when the new ones come out and these sell for like $600 off on eBay :)


    Edit: not sure how OP got lucky to get one.

    You can get a movers coupon that expires 1/31/15 if you change your address online and pay about $1.50. I just bought a 13" MacBook Pro Retina 256gb and got $280 off the original price at Best Buy.

    Badger - what was the price you paid? The coupon is 10% which means you got super ripped off at $2800 for a less than 2000 msrp laptop. Are you in USD?

    It's a 13" not a 15" so I paid $1,217 with tax using the 10% off and student discount along with it being on sale.

    That's great! How did you convince them to give you three discounts?

    I just gave them the two coupons and they honored them. The educational discount coupon wasn't even valid until December 12th and somehow they made it work.

    I'll try one more store but around here they rarely do things like that.
