Happy almost Fourth of July! With the holiday approaching, retailers are offering celebratory holiday sales, discounting a wide range of products. Sales are available at big box stores like Best Buy and at smaller websites, so if you've been waiting to pull the trigger on an Apple product or accessory, make sure to see if it's on sale this week.

There's a new feature in the Buyer's Guide, which will let you know when a product is available at the lowest price we've seen. Look for the products that are tagged with "Lowest Price Ever" to see some of the best discounts available. There are several this week, on an older 2014 Retina MacBook Pro that's available for $600 off and on several older MacBook Air models.

We've rounded up the best deals we could find, on Apple products like the iPhone and on Apple accessories. As always, we've also got a list of great apps and games that are on sale this week.


Best Buy is offering a free $50 Best Buy gift card with the purchase and activation of any iPhone on a Verizon Edge, AT&T Next, Sprint Easy Pay, or Sprint Leasing plan. It's also available for two-year agreements through Verizon and Sprint.


Prices for the iPhone 6 start at $199 with a two-year contract, or $21.67/month on a plan like AT&T Next.

iPad Air 2

Staples is discounting several of its iPad Air 2 models by $100, dropping the price of the 16GB Wi-Fi only model to $399. iPads on sale include all 16GB Wi-Fi only models and 64GB Wi-Fi only models in Gold and Space Gray, which are priced at $499 instead of $599 with the discount.

That iPad Air 2 deal is EXTRMELY tempting but it is so close to the next iPad... Maybe I could get a similar deal on the iPad Air 3 next Black Friday?

After the iPad Air 2 was released last year, there were some pretty significant Black Friday deals, so I wouldn't be surprised to see something similar this year. Most deals weren't quite as good as a straight $100 discount, but there were lots of gift cards with purchase and what not. The only issue with the iPad Air 2 sales last year is that they went really quickly. Supplies were still a bit constrained at that time, and with the deals, sale models were snapped up quick.

Sorry about that, under iPad mini 3 I forgot to mention that it's an in-store only deal. You'll need to visit a local Staples to pick up an iPad mini 3 at that price.
At the Staples I went to they didn't even know about the sale. I had to go to an iPad on display there and pull up their own ad and show them.

@MacinJosh Thanks a lot buddy. Price matched at best buy and am actually using my iPad mini 3 to post this :)
Congrats. That's a great tablet.

Went to Best Buy, showed them the ad and got price match on a 64gb Air 2 for $499. It is listed for $539 on, but if you go to and find it there, it is priced at $499 - that's what I had to do, so YMMV.
