    I'm sure this has been discussed here recently but multiple searches yielded nothing relevant.

    Does anyone know if the current Best Buy mover's coupon can be used to buy the latest MacBook Pro (i.e., the Touch Bar models)?

    Thanks for all feedback.

    Did they? I've seen people mention them elsewhere but there are mixed reports re: MBPs being excluded or not.

    Yeah, deal sites were all over the BB 10% coupons. I was guilty of going to the post office and saying "you guys have a mover's guide?" They would happily hand over one. Then I'd go buy something expensive for 10% off an hour later.

    They stopped them because of the abuse. Your best bet in Best Buy (heh) is to find what you want, open box. Then haggle with the manager. They nearly instantly will give 10% off the already reduced open box price, no problem. I do it all the time. I got a few rMBPs a year or so ago for 20% off...like a $2,500 computer for $1,700 or so...just by asking. Nothing at all wrong with them, just returns and carried the balance (11.5 months) of warranty...

    Thanks. Best Buy itself still seems to tease mover's discounts — see, e.g., their Mover's section — but it's been hard to get a straight answer either way. (I assume the holidays are particularly susceptible to "mover" fraud, so I guess my timing is bad.)

    Anyone can sign up for the "mover's" section...they don't care. All you get is the occasional appliance coupon that's really not good.

    OK. Thanks.

    I ended up buying from Best Buy today, price-matching the 2.7/512 GB model for $2,599 from B&H, so the coupon wouldn't have done me much, if any, additional good anyway.
