Best Buy is discounting a large collection of M3 MacBook Pro computers today, including both the 14-inch and 16-inch versions of the laptop. Every deal in this sale requires you to have a My Best Buy Plus or Total membership, although non-members can still get solid second-best prices on these MacBook Pro models.

FYI, Best Buy Plus membership costs $49.99/year, which adds 2-day shipping, member prices, and 60-day return window. Probably not worth it for most people.

$179.99/year Best Buy Total is an interesting offering. It adds 2-year Best Buy repair as well as AppleCare+ protection. 2-year AppleCare+ for iPhone costs $79-$199 depending on the model and for Macs, $99-$499 depending on the model. So that could be a worthy alternative to purchasing AppleCare+ separately, provided it doesn't come with weird strings attached.

I just put in an order for a M3 Pro 14" with 36 gb ram and 1 TB (~$2800). Trading in a macbook air M2 with 16 gb and 1 TB ($860 trade in value). Computer arrives later this week.

See option for $2999 m3 max with same ram and HDD. Best buy offering $725 trade in for M2 MBA (8 gb ram and 512 HDD).

Keep current or cancel apple order and go BB?

BB plus never going to be worth it for me since closed out their Elite program and want people to pay for it. They closed their best store here in area and the other two that are left are 1/2 empty and look like could easily be done at their whim. Not sure how the expect to do well as mostly on-line retailer.

Typo - 26GB should be 36GB.

I have now completed my public service for the month. Wow...feels great to get that out of the way early.😜

That's not how Best Buy Total works. Paying for one year ($179) of Total membership does not give you two years of AppleCare+ or any other Best Buy protection plan. If you want the AppleCare+ coverage to continue past the first year, you must renew the Total membership for a second year and pay another $179. So you're looking at $358 if you want two full years of coverage. If you don't renew your membership for a second year, the AppleCare+ coverage ends immediately.

The nice thing is that the membership provides coverage (including AppleCare+) for almost everything you purchase at Best Buy. Personally, I have over a dozen devices including MacBooks, game consoles, iPhones, iPads, and other electronics covered through Best Buy Total, so the membership is worth it for me. But if you rarely shop at Best Buy or don't plan on purchasing other electronics in the immediate future, then you'd probably be better off purchasing AppleCare+ on its own.

Every new Apple device is on sale… sure is a sign, but good deals to be had if you are buying.

Things are not well in Apple land when Beat buy is selling brand new Apple laptops for less than they pay for them.

I doubt BB is selling them at a loss as there's the paid membership plan requirement and Apple may be offering them incentives/discounts but it's not that unusual to see Apple retailer discounts on Mac products that have been out for several months. It's been going on for decades e.g., the original Macintosh was being discounted around $500 (20%) by some retailers less than six months after launch.
