I don't particularly like stores cheapening the value of Apple's brand like this.

Then you're buying Apple products for the wrong reasons.

Do you own a substantial amount of stock in Apple? Otherwise, why do you care about the value of Apple's brand?

Sad thing is, I still can't really recommend one to any of my friends or family, even at $100 off. I've had one since launch day too. I know there are those here that swear by them and Tim Cook is always talking about how sky high the "customer sat" is, but other than for receiving message/email notifications, I really don't get much use out of mine at all.

$250 for the Sport 38mm should have been the price to begin with. Thats a lot more reasonable for an entry level model. I loved my Apple Watch for the few days I owned one but I just couldn't justify the price for what it can do. I remember telling the Apple store employee that I would instantly buy another one if they drop the price by $100. Of course at this point the Apple Watch 2 is so close that I might as well wait and see what Apple is bringing next.

Best Buy's holiday return policy runs until January 15th. Anybody that has previously purchased one there since November 1st just needs to go to the customer service counter and ask for a price match. If that fails for any reason, then simply return it and re-buy at the lower price.

Then you're more than welcome to go to an Apple Store and buy it there at the original price.

Did you just basically say 'you're buying it wrong'

Well there is the resale value that is linked to the brand. Erode that and our shinny Apple devices have a lower trade value.

They are authorized retailers. Apple approved of these promotions.
