    Apple products rarely have more than about a 5% discount. Towards the end of the AppleTV 2's life we were seeing up to a 15% discount, but that wasn't until earlier this year. Right now, with the AppleTV 3 just rolling out, your best bet is Amazon, Macmall, or Macconnection. I checked MacConnection and they have it for 99 as well. Looks like that's the going rate. I even get a discount from Apple thru my work on everything but the Appletv (not a lot of profit on an item that starts out at 99).

    Agree, one of the above is your best bet at this point since everywhere is selling for MSRP.

    One thing people often overlook is purchasing through their credit card's affiliation. For example, Discover has 5% cash back if you order online by first linking through their Shop Discover section. Lots of choices- Apple, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, Amazon (I think). Maybe wait out for a 10% or 15% cash back kinda thing.

    It's not much, but meh, 5% will save you 5 bucks. Might cover tax lol

    Depending on where you live no tax from Amazon.
