There are quite a few deals on Apple products, apps, and accessories this week due to the upcoming Labor Day holiday in the United States. Retailers have discounted the iPad Air, Retina iPad mini, and more, and several app developers are cutting app prices.

While there are few deals on Apple's lineup of Mac products, Apple's own back to school program is still ongoing until September 9, offering EDU customers a gift card with the purchase of a Mac, iPad, or iPhone. Best Buy is also continuing to offer EDU customers $100 off all MacBooks and the iMac.

iPad Air

Staples is offering $30 off all models of the iPad Air for Labor Day weekend, dropping the price of the entry-level 16GB Wi-Fi only model to $469, for example. The company is also offering $100 off select computers that are regularly priced at $499 or more with the coupon code 11605, which applies to all iPads priced over $499, for a total discount of up to $130 on some iPad Air models.

I usually snap up a discounted iTunes card when these deals come along. This way I buy most of my iTunes content at a discount.
