Funny, I got a great deal on Amazon (2010 euros) but it was only for the space gray.

Since the 14 and 16 inch MBPs aren't going to be updated in 2022 this is a great price.
I wonder why it is discounted now... made me think another update would be coming later this year, but I agree that seemed unlikely

It seems like the "no discount" days for Apple products are over. iPad (all variants), MacBook (Air/Pro), AirPods (all variants), iMacs all have been on consistent sales pretty soon after launch. At this point, unless you want a BTO config, I would not pay retail pricing for most Apple devices.

A 10% discount on a specific color/storage configuration by Amazon? I wouldn’t read too much into it. It seems to be a pretty standard practice of theirs to push Apple SKU’s that aren’t moving as much as the others.

Seems online consumers are much more accepting of such tightly restricted sales. I imagine brick and mortar retailers are more hesitant because then their staff has to deal with customers begging for an exception to allow the discount on a different model.

Totally agree.

I was going to propose this may be due to Ron Johnson’s departure, the Apple SVP that ran Apple Retail Stores until he left to be JC Penny’s CEO and failed miserably because his “no discounts ever” strategy did not translate at all.

…But that was 11 years ago… I’m getting so oooold.

He failed because the shareholders wanted Penny’s (only old people call it Penny’s) to keep the shoppers that demanded discounts. He was never put in a position to succeed.

He failed because that genre of retail space is dead.

I’m inclined to agree. Consumers are seemingly reserving their physical retail purchases to luxury items where the “experience” is paramount to the transaction (and the social media post-worthy pictures they entail) or essentials where both cost and speed are at premium and online can’t quite compete yet.

Upper middle class moms that previously did back to school shopping at JC Penny’s? Order the Levi’s, Nike’s, and JanSport on Amazon and get 2 hours of your Saturday back.
