It seems early for discounts, is this normal?
Not really. Apple has been allowing its retailers to run an unusually large number of discounts over the last year or so. iPad discounts used to be impossible to get; now you can find the 128GB at $329 most of the time. Same with MBPs - discounts discounts discounts. I suspect Apple's trying to show some kind of unit grown to make up for the presumably slowing iPhone market.

There have been rumors about new MacBooks coming later this year, so it COULD be possible that a quicker refresh is lined up for end of the year.

I’ve seen a number of people on these forums state that one would be crazy not to get AppleCare. Except, now you’ve made an expensive computer even more costly. And then you’re left with a questionably reliable machine after AppleCare runs out. I keep my hardware a long time. It’s crazy that people are seemingly ok with this state of affairs.

I would rather buy refurbished directly from Apple, or increase the risk+reward and look on eBay.

The nice thing about Apple coverage is that it’s associated with the device, not with the buyer. If you buy a used MacBook Pro and its original purchase date was 10 months ago, you still have 2 months of original warranty on it.

At this point the 2018 MacBook Pro has 4 years of coverage from the original purchase date on the keyboard, and they will replace the keyboard with the updated 2019 version if there’s a problem. That’s enough reassurance for me - I just picked up a secondhand 2018 MacBook Pro 15” 512GB model for under $1800, I’m very happy with it.

This is what I’m debating doing now. Was it eBay or Craigslist?

I bought this one on eBay, although I bought my previous MacBook Pro on Craigslist. It’s always a calculated risk. I do like that you can check out an eBay seller’s feedback, ask them a question and see if they seem like a non weirdo. These days good eBay sellers post pictures including the serial number, the battery stats and all that. You can look up the warranty coverage, it’s nice.
