    Those savings are nice, I wonder if the online resellers will offer a MacBook at $750.

    Not bad if you also plan to buy other electronics/entertainment type gifts. Usually the apple products are excluded from the reward zone discounts (I think Apple asks them to). So this is their way around it by not really selling the Mac cheaper, just giving something extra free.

    thats not as good as the current microcenter deal on the macbook with a 200 dollar visa prepaid card via mail in rebate... more instant but it presumes you want to get more stuff from BB.. which i guess alot of people do.

    Not too bad. Don't think of it as a gift card though, it's paying for the tax(at least in california it's close to what the tax would be, about $97.50).

    And the refurb is out of stock now. The Best Buy one sounds good, except it says "3 per store" So unless you camp out for it, you won't get it. I am pondering a new or refurb Macbook for my GF for Christmas, so I won't have to listen to her bitch about her POS Acer anymore. Or listen to its fan running full blast all the time.

    might be a good deal in some states... but not in CA...

    thats $999 + $90 tax = $1090 - $150 = $940

    and campout time =(

    but its $924 after rebate, not tax and free shipping from macconnection...

    My experience with this kind of thing (gift card, coupon, etc.) at other retailers is that it is for your future purchase(s) not the current one.

    I'm not familiar with Best Buy's instant gift card style of promotion, so, I was wondering will you be able to actually use it toward the purchase of the MacBook if you're one of the lucky 3 present? If you can't use it on the current purchase then you're actually paying full retail for the MacBook, and just getting $150 worth of other Best Buy merchandise.

    You can negotiate with the manager to get the $150 off instantly, I've seen it happen on a plasma TV before. Probably not when this will go fast, though.

    black friday is such a copout. unless your like one of the first 12 people in line forget about getting any of the real deals worth being there for. They give tickets out to the people in line about what your there for and its gone before the door even opens. so you got there and theres 20 people in line. your already to late. your just one of the many now that got suckered into the store for nothing.

    its just plain sad to drive by and see the line out the door and around the corner. people number 65 in line hoping they are going to get that 299 laptop.

    there will be all kinds of deals from thanksgiving on that will actually be obtainable to the average person.

    Not always true. Cyber Monday isn't bad at all, it's just a matter of going to the right places at the right time.

    Because one is new? Some people prefer it, I'm indifferent. Also the Refurb store is inconsistent.

    Because you get Best Buy points, I assume there will be a better deal later.

    Yeah... apologies for the shallow comment, but someone needs to feed that girl.

    Can you buy 3 year Applecare on refurb-ed Macbook Pros?
