    Best Buy is hosting an early access online-only sale today that includes significant discounts on the Apple Watch and the iPad Air 2 ahead of the traditional Black Friday shopping holiday.

    Customers can get $50 off the Apple Watch Sport and $100 off the stainless steel Apple Watch, dropping entry-level prices to $299 and $449, respectively. The discount applies to all Apple Watch models that Best Buy sells and is available online only.

    To get the discount, enter the code AWSPORTDEAL when checking out with an Apple Watch Sport or AWDEAL when checking out with the stainless steel Apple Watch.

    Best Buy is also offering up to $125 off iPad Air 2 models. The 16 and 64GB iPad Air 2 models can be purchased at a $100 discount when using the promo code IPADAIR2DEAL at checkout, while 128GB models can be purchased at a $125 discount with the promocode IPADSAVE125DEAL.

    Best Buy's Early Access sale will end on 11/24/15 at 11:59 p.m. Central Time. That translates to 9:59 p.m. Pacific Time and 12:59 a.m. Eastern Time.

    When Black Friday rolls around, Best Buy will be offering additional discounts on the Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and a selection of MacBooks. Several other retailers are also offering similar deals, all of which can be found in our dedicated Black Friday roundup.

    Nice deals if you don't already own a watch or ipad. Probably should have waited to buy mine (nah, I am happy with my purchase).

    Sams Club has the best price on the iPad Air 2 I believe its a $150 off. The best Buy Apple Watch deal is the same deal that they will have on Black Friday.

    The only way to get the Apple Watch any cheaper is to find an open box deal, buy one used from CowBoom, Craigslist, Ebay or hope for a better deal on Cyber Monday or after Christmas.

    With any new Apple product, I never buy a first launch item. I'll always wait for at least a 2.0 version and it's pretty much confirmed that a new Apple watch is on the way. The current one is too fat.

    Having a hard time not doing this. Getting a gold iPad Air 2 and Rose Gold Apple Watch for my gf for Christmas, and this seems like it may be the best deal even on Black Friday...

    I wonder if Best Buy will price match this in store. I have 20% cash back on any Apple Pay purchases...

    I think they ment that even though these deals end tomorrow, it will be up again on Black Friday. The Apple Watch will not get any cheaper this weekend at Best Buy.

    Nope.

    Agreed...giving that Apple looks like it is going into a 2 year cycle for iPads - this could be good deal

    Too bad my wallet is crying...:p

    Why not just wait until it's free. We will need your phone number to call you.

    I found no sale at all there. i even went to the Sale area, where they have reforms - at a whopping $20 off. This is bull. You should take this article off the MacRumors page - its a lie.

    TL;DR? As it says: put an applicable item in your cart, use the promo code on checkout.
