Must be another slow news day. We seem to get a lot of buyers guides lately.


I believe they do them weekly.


Yep, we do these posts once a week on Fridays.

----------

There are other stores besides B&H Photo, and Best Buy that offer discounts on Apple products. Staples is offering $10-$60 off all their ipad models. Last week they were up to $90 off. Costco offers $20-$40 off iPads and iPhones.


Appreciate the feedback :) I'll make sure to keep an eye on Staples' deals. I don't usually include Costco because it's a members-only price, unless they're running a special deal.

Not sure why they don't do an apps of the week article. If you really want a deal just set up an alert in the slickdeals app and monitor deals that hit front page.
