Pro tip: Best Buy, Amazon, other major retailers and your cellular carrier are the best places to look — not the Apple Store. That said, Apple is having its own Cyber Monday shopping event focused on gift cards up to $200 with purchase, so if you’re interested in making multiple Apple purchases, those might come in handy. Otherwise, we suggest sticking with other major vendors: Apple’s gift-card incentive doesn’t beat any of the deals listed below.

Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Apple deals still available
The $800 deal at Amazon appears to be gone, but you can still get the current MacBook Air for just $900 at Best Buy — that’s $200 off the Apple Store price. (To get this price, you need to be a member of the My Best Buy program, which is free to join.)
The new 13- inch MacBook Pro that was released in July is now down to $1,100 at Best Buy. (Amazon was matching this price but appears to have sold out.)
Best Buy’s iPhone 11 deal is great if you’re looking to upgrade from a recent phone like the iPhone X, XR or XS. The retailer is offering up to $500 off if you’re trading in one of those devices in good, working condition and buying an iPhone 11, 11 Pro or 11 Pro Max. You’ll need to be on AT&T, Verizon or Sprint and purchase the new device on your carrier’s installment plan, but it’s a nice discount nonetheless.
Older phones will get a discount, but it won’t be as substantial. Regardless you will need to go into a physical Best Buy store to get the deal. The deal runs now through Cyber Monday.
Unlike other deals, the discount will not be given on a gift card. Instead, your monthly payment will go down to reflect the updated pricing.
Released in early November, the AirPods Pro are available for a (slightly) cheaper price. Regularly priced at $250, the small discount for the noise-canceling earbuds is great for those needing to upgrade their previous AirPods or those who want to dive into a truly wireless audio experience.
The new AirPods are the baseline true wireless headphones. They have an open design and the fit can be finicky for some ears, but they’re a significant step up from wired headphones for iPhone users.
