Best Buy offering free Apple TVs with 15-inch RMBP purchase
Best Buy has launched a <a href=" ck_To_Campus_Macbook_110317&sc=Global&cp=1&sp=-bestsellingsort skuid&qp=&list=n&usc=All Categories&nrp=15&AID=10597222&PID=5527868&URL=htt p:// ack_To_Campus_Macbook_110317&sc=Global&cp=1&sp=-bestsellingsort%20skuid&qp=&list=n&usc=All%20Categ ories&nrp=15&ref=39&loc=01&CJPID=5527868" rel='nofollow'>brief promotion</a> on top of an ongoing promotion, making for a great opportunity for some buyers. In addition to discounting current Retina MacBook Pros by <a href=" se/" rel='nofollow'>$200 off list price</a>, the company will also give buyers of those MacBooks a free, third-generation Apple TV. In addition, verifiable students at recognized educational institutions can get another $100 discount on the Retina MacBook Pros, totalling a $300 discount along with the free Apple TV. The offer makes the pricing the lowest currently available when the value of the $99 Apple TV is included.<br />
<br />
As examples of the pricing, which is offered both online and in retail stores, a base 13-inch Retina MBP with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, costs $1,300 ($1,200 for students). On the other end, the 15-inch Retina MacBook Pro with 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage would cost $2,600 ($2,500 for students). The free Apple TV unit is included in the cart automatically when ordering online.<br />
<br />
Shoppers in a handful of US states that have no state sales tax -- or those in states with a <a href="" rel='nofollow'>summer tax holiday</a> going on during the promotion -- can save another 5-10 percent on the overall value of the purchase. Current 10 states that normally charge sales tax are offering a "back to school" tax holiday, mostly in the first week of August. Best Buy's promotion with the Apple TV is running until August 3, but the $200 off list deal may continue beyond that.<br />
