The Christmas holiday is less than a week away, and while deals have tapered off a bit this week, there are still a few discounts to be had on the iMac, MacBook Air,
Mac Pro, Retina MacBook Pro, and older iPads. There's also one last deal on the iPad Air 2 that drops the price quite a bit.

We've also got discounts on some great potential gifts, including personalized iPhone cases from Casetify, wireless headphones from Jaybird, the popular Pencil stylus from FiftyThree, and more in this week's Buyer's Guide deals post.

iPad Air 2

If you're in need of an iPad Air 2 and didn't take advantage of the deals offered around Black Friday, there's one last discount available this week. Target is offering 15 percent off the iPad Air 2 in all colors and capacities through its Cartwheel app.

That drops the price of the entry-level Wi-Fi only model to $424, down from $499. The discount will only be available on Friday and Saturday, and only in Target stores.

iPhone

Walmart is continuing its $50 off deal on the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, dropping the price of the 16GB iPhone 6 to $129, down from the previous $179 price tag, and it's also offering the 16GB iPhone 6 Plus for $229, down from $279. The iPhone 5s is on sale at Walmart as well, now available for $49 instead of $79.

A two-year contract is required to get the discounted price, and Walmart also offers a trade-in program to drop the pricing even lower. Deals are available in-store only and will last through February.

Scam Alert...

BUYER BEWARE

The Groupon SmartphoneMall deal is a scam. At first glance, The Smartphone Mall seems like an amazing deal. $150 for $25. But all the "name brand" accessories are "backordered" and you can't buy them.

Beats by Dre - "backordered"
Morphie iPhone Charger - "backordered"

Anything with a name brand is backorderd, besides lame bundles where they add on $100 of their off brand accessories.

Everything else in the store are no-brand products, which means the $30 iPhone charger cable is a cheapo $1 cable not made by Apple. Their cases look like Otterboxes but aren't.


Groupon is offering $150 worth of accessories from The Smartphone Mall for $25, which includes items like Beats By Dre headphones, iPhone cases, Lightning cables, and more.


P.S. I made my account just to post this.
