If you've been waiting to buy an iPad Air 2, this may be the week to do it. Best Buy has cut prices on many models by $50 to $100. Prices aren't the lowest we've seen, but they're close, especially on higher-capacity models.

Best Buy is also having a sale on some of its MacBook Air models, dropping the prices by $100. With the deal, the prices are the lowest we've seen on the 11-inch MacBook Air models since they were released. Best Buy is also now selling the Apple Watch, but there are no discounts to be had on the device.

Apple's Back to School promotion is still going on, and as of this week, it's expanded to the online store as well. Apple is offering a free pair of Beats Solo2 headphones with the purchase of a Mac.

Best Buy is discounting its selection of iPad Air 2 models this week, dropping prices from $75 to $100. The biggest discount is on the 128GB Cellular iPad Air 2 in Gold and Space Gray, available for $729.99, the lowest price we've seen on that particular model.
