This just reinforces the concept that Black Friday deals are nothing extraordinary particularly when it comes to Apple products.

I guess I am dense. I don't understand the iPhone 7 offer. You get a $250 BB card if you trade in your iPhone 6 or newer and activate a billing plan on S, V, or A. It seems to say that you can't just trade and buy the phone outright but need to finance it. ATT's programs are a 0% loan, no money there, so I assume this is BB financing. BB will give you $250 to spend at BB to set this financing up. Even assuming other BB products are marketed up, that must be a heckuva finance charge to make the deal attractive to BB. Or they assume the average user will get a lot of late fees or accrued interest to make up the difference. If I could trade and buy outright, it is not a bad deal. I can spend $250 at best buy pretty easily over a year. If I were to finance it, I'd probably just use an ATT or Apple step up program as I have a hunch that there are some hidden numbers in there to offset that $250

Apple is teetering here. Everything is fine, just treading water, switching over almost total focus and investment to iPhones and iPads. The problem is the market for iPhone's and iPad's are much more fragile (people can leave them much easier than say a Mac) and Apple is choosing to drive their Mac users away.

When the fickle fashion like smartphone market goes down for iPhone (which it will at some point) it'll be an immense crisis for Apple and as management looks around everything else will be gone (Airport...) or on life support. JMHO....

32GB iPad Mini 4 is only available with in-store pickup, and SURPRISE it's not in stock at any Best Buy within 250 miles of Salt Lake City.

BOO. $299 is a great price. Wish I could get it right now.

Can you try to get a price match from a local competitor? I've had luck with this in the past..good luck!
