As spotted by iClarified, Apple is now reminding customers of upcoming "sales tax holidays" that allow residents in several US states to purchase select Apple gear without paying an additional sales tax charge. Customers potentially could save hundreds of dollars by purchasing high-priced items like MacBooks during this annual discount opportunity.

sales-tax-holiday

If your state offers a tax holiday this summer, you can buy select Apple products without paying sales tax.* When shopping online, sales tax will appear during checkout, but you’ll see the correct tax amount on your email order confirmation.

The states that offer these summertime tax holidays that extend to Apple products include Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Mexico, South Carolina and Tennessee. You can find a list of dates and qualifying items here. In most states, the tax-free holiday begins August 1st and lasts only a few days.

Are people in those states getting vacations days to shop? Do they gather together in families to celebrate? No? Then why would you call it a holiday?

Of course Maryland, the stupid state, does not have a tax holiday.

Drive to Delaware. Always a tax holiday.

Ah, I see.

I'll be right back, I'm going to a bathroom holiday. :p

So living in Florida it only applies up to $750 in computer purchases. I don't think this is worth it since Apple doesn't have a computer at that price point.
Has the Mac mini been discontinued? :confused:

Dead link.
