Apple AirPods, iPhones, iPads and MacBooks are famous for holding their value and it is therefore rare to see Apple offer discounts directly. But with Apple’s retail partners it’s a different. Sales are happening every day across all devices and with notable fluctuations. So this guide is designed to tell you where and when to buy that Apple product you’ve had your eye on.

Best AirPods / Beats Deals
Best Apple AirPods / Beats Live Deals
AirPods Pro continue to run low on stock and with minimal discounts. As such, the Sam’s Club and Walmart deals are worth jumping on right now. It may be small, but you won’t find a bigger discount most of this year.
AirPods Pro Live Deals
- 01/18 – PRICE CHANGE – AirPods Pro – (typically $249.99) – Amazon: $249 / B&H: $249 (availability 6-10 weeks) / Best Buy: $249.99 / Sam’s Club: $234.98 / Staples: $249 (limited collection only) / Target: $249.99 / Walmart: $239
Where the real deals are, however, are the second generation AirPods. Both wired and wireless charging models have consistent discounts with Amazon and and Walmart having the best current deals for the Wired charging AirPods and Staples leading the way for the Wireless charging model. $129 and $164 are the lowest prices I’ve seen for either model so I’d suggest jumping on these prices while they are still available.
AirPods With Charging Case Live Deals
AirPods With Wireless Charging Case Live Deals
Beware of the “permanent discount deals on Beats. The savings are big and but they have been available for a long time, so long in fact that while I check them on a daily basis they feel like the new standard price. That said, you’re still getting a lot of product for your money – particularly the Studio 3 Wireless Noise Canceling headphones from Best Buy. Those are the model to buy.
- 01/18 – PRICE CHANGE – Beats by Dr. Dre – Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones – typically $299 (save $100) – Amazon: $199.98 / Best Buy: $266.99 (refurbished) / Sam’s Club: $199.98 / Target: $199.99 / Walmart: $189
- 01/18 – Beats by Dr. Dre – Beats Studio³ Wireless Noise Canceling Headphones – Gray – typically $349.95 (save $150) – Amazon: $349.95 / B&H: $349.95 / Best Buy: $189.99 / Target: $349.99 / Walmart: $349.95

Best iPad Deals
The 10.2-inch standard iPad at $269 from eBay is the big bargain here. It’s a rock solid device which is already priced cheaply, so a further $60 saving is something not to look past for a current Apple device. iPad Pro deals are also available, with Amazon’s $125 discount on the 11-inch model the clear standout.
Best iPhone Deals
Sales on the iPhone 11 series are available but you need to sign a new long-term carrier contract to benefit so bear that in mind. What catches my eye, however, are the stunningly cheap deals on the older iPhone SE and iPhone 6S which make them perfect buys for younger children or less tech savvy / interested relatives. Despite their ages, these are still great devices for next to nothing.
