Best Buy, others begin discounting just-released Haswell MacBook Airs
Apple has given Best Buy <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289747==http://www.kqzyfj.com/click-5681521-10474050?url=http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olstemplatemapper.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&_dynSessConf=4102193223111511847&id=pcmcat247400 050001&type=category&usc=abcat0500000&cp=1&sp=-displaydate+skuid&nrp=25&qp=crootcategoryid%7E%7Ec abcat0500000%7E%7Ecabcat0502000%7E%7Encpcmcat24740 0050001&add_to_pkg=false&pagetype=listing&gf=y" rel='nofollow'>permission to discount</a> the just-released <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289748==http://www.macnn.com/reviews/review-mid-2013-11-inch-macbook-air.html" rel='nofollow'>Haswell-equipped MacBook Airs</a> by up to $64, triggering a wave of price-matching on the new models at other online competitors. Other stores are offering the models at similar prices, or along with three-year AppleCare warranties for the lowest overall price available. The sale has had a ripple effect of also discounting the current MacBook Pro models, with discounts of up to $313 possible using promo codes from <em>AppleInsider</em>.<br />
<br />
The Best Buy sale, which is running through July 20, discounts 11-inch current MacBook Air models by $50 and 13-inch models by up to $64. The company is also offering a option where three years of discounted AppleCare can be purchased, saving at least $120 off the price of the same model combined with three-year AppleCare if bought directly from Apple. <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289737==http://www.bhphotovideo.com" rel='nofollow'>B&H Photo Video</a>, another reputable online reseller, has matched Best Buy's prices on both the discounted Haswell MBAs (11.6-inch model with either <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289738==http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/983419-REG/apple_md711ll_a_11_6_macbook_air_notebook.html/BI/1717/KBID/2301" rel='nofollow'>128GB</a> or <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289739==http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/983420-REG/apple_md712ll_a_11_6_macbook_air_notebook.html/BI/1717/KBID/2301" rel='nofollow'>256GB</a> internal storage) and the discounted AppleCare.<br />
<br />
Amazon and MacMall have also price-matched Best Buy's offer for the 11-inch models, with MacMall offering a small advantage over the others for the lowest base price thanks to a promotional offer through <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289740==http://appleinsider.com/mac_price_guide/" rel='nofollow'>AppleInsider</a>. Buyers should use <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289741==http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-1989299-10273684?url=http://www.macmall.com/p.pdp?source=APPLEINSIDER01&dpno=9690639" rel='nofollow'>these</a> <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289742==http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-1989299-10273684?url=http://www.macmall.com/p.pdp?source=APPLEINSIDER01&dpno=9690642" rel='nofollow'>links</a> and apply the promo code APPLEINSIDER01 to get the lowest of the listed prices for the 11-inch MBA models.<br />
<br />
Savings are also available on current-generation MacBook Pros, with discounts of up to $200 available from Best Buy and Amazon, and even more on a particular Retina model from MacMall. The Best Buy offer on current MacBook Pros sees a $200 discount on the 2.5GHz 13-inch model, which has been matched <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289743==https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0074703CM/ref=as_li_ss_til?tag=ediugecirpcam-20&camp=0&creative=0&linkCode=as4&creativeASIN=B00 74703CM&adid=1FHN9XX1RRFEGWG70GE7&" rel='nofollow'>by Amazon</a> and now sells for $999. MacMall is offering a Retina version of the same model for $1,430, but by applying the promo code APPLEINSIDER01 the price is reduced to <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/289744==http://www.tkqlhce.com/click-1989299-10273684?url=http://www.macmall.com/p.pdp?source=APPLEINSIDER01&dpno=9418688" rel='nofollow'>$1,385.59</a>, a $313 discount off list price and the lowest price available for that particular model.
