    So I've decided finally to go with the ntb, best deal I can find is through bh photo for $100.
    I'll have Best Buy price match and get 0% for 12 month.
    Planning on buying also an iPhone 7. What's the best deal I can get right now for both.

    Does this forum have a for sale section?

    Unless you can convince the best buy sales folks to give you more of a discount for buying both, you'll not find any sales or incentives. Most people don't buy a phone and computer at the same time so there's little reason for retailers to offer sales to draw people in.

    Yes, we have a section however access to the Marketplace forum is allowed after being a member for 6 months and having 250 posts.

    Be aware that Best Buy may charge you sales tax, which can add up quickly. When I've bought from B&H I paid no tax or shipping. On a new MBP that was around a hundred bucks I saved.

    You should just go ahead, head out the door and purchase what comes to you. This is called the function of commerce, supply and demand, or perhaps better understood in this case as demand and supply. Your senses (which include the mind) are demanding, so you have to supply to satisfy that demand. Do not delay just go ahead and do it. The senses are very difficult to control, what to speak of the mind, which is likened to trying to control the wind. Only for great yogis. If you are not a great yogi then you are a servant of the demands.

    I "think" B&H charges sales tax in NY

    That may be; I believe that's their shipping origin, so that would make sense.

    Best deal I've seen so far.

    eBay MacBook Pro 2016 for $1,299.99

    Note, looks like its almost sold out.

    Egh sort of yes.
    I guess it was a special sale. You finance iPhone 7 and they give you $200 gift card . That could then be used in the MBP purchase.

    I'm far away from /250
