$399 for Space Black SS and $499 for Milanese Loop SS (42mm). New and not open box. Get 'em while there hot!

I'm leaning toward the Milanese Loop, but $399 is hard to pass up...

Haha, returning my $499 Apple watch and repurchasing for $399. Today was the last day of my 15 day return window, too!

Or you could just have them price adjust it. Less hassle for both of you.

Yeah you probably right. I was thinking of going that route first but wasn't sure if they did it.

Plus, I've genuinely enjoyed my Apple Watch. Just wanted to get the best deal possible. Would hate for someone else to get an open box item when I like it myself.

Has anyone any experience with the black stainless? Does it scratch easily?

I have had the space black since December and it looks the same as the day I got it. Freaking love it. Definitely recommend.

It really is a local store policy. Most will if a competitor like bestbuy has them on sale.

I called my local Apple Store and the manager said " Oh wow. Yeah we can't match that. That is a much better deal."

Now I have to decide if it's worth buying or waiting!!!

That deal is just crazy. I have a SS and I am tempted to buy one (always like the black SS), and give my regular SS to the GF. I really wish the deal included SS with link bracelets. I am not sure bestbuy sells that variant thought.

Just get the watch now and buy the link bracelet later. Saving $200 off the watch (and taxes) to put towards the link bracelet.

Then you'll also have a Sport band around in case you end up doing some more physical activities or don't want the band to get all scuffed up.

very true. It really seems like bestbuy is in the "know" with apple. This almost confirms a refresh at WWDC. We saw the same thing with MacBooks, dropping by $300.

You guys really think there will be a refresh in June? If it's that soon I may as well just wait. Although I'd presumably be paying $200 more for the same model here in a few months compared to this sale.

I prefer to think of the sale as just periodic sales Best Buy does...at any rate I do like wearing a watch at at $399 this is cheaper than the last watch I bought. Once I add in the link bracelet though..it'll be the most expensive watch I've bought. Until I get a Sinn.

The $50 sale sure. Sales at this margin points to a refresh IMO.

Granted it is only select models and may be the ones they over purchased.
