Deals: $100 off 12" MacBooks, Free Apple TVs with 13" MacBook Airs, early-2015 … – Apple Insider

To kick off the week, Apple resellers initiated limited time, $80-$100 discounts on 12″ MacBook Airs. Meanwhile, AI has teamed up with Adorama to give away free Apple TVs and instant discounts of $119-$245 on all 13″ MacBook Airs with Apple Care. Plus $200 off the new 13″ MacBook Pro and Apple’s high-end mid-2014 15″ MacBook Pro with two Free Accessories for $1,929.00

$80-$100 off 12″ MacBooks

For whatever reason, Apple authorized resellers this week are deeply discounting handful of Apple’s streamlined 12″ MacBooks. Most notably, a couple of $80 and $100 price drops from B&H Photo and Amazon that were picked up by our Price Guides. Keep in mind the B&H only collects sales tax on orders that ship inside NY state. Prior to these sales, the most significant discounts on 12″ MacBooks were available only on 12″ MacBooks bundled with AppleCare. It’s unclear how long any of these price drops will last.

The average lead time from when you submit your rebate application to when you’ll receive your card is approximately 6 weeks.
