Best Buy today introduced a new deal into its Apple-centric "Holiday Event," giving customers the chance to get $300 off of the entry-level Retina Macbook, along with free two-day shipping for last minute holiday shoppers.

Originally priced at $1,299, the deal reduces the new Gold, Silver, and Space Gray MacBook to $999, rivaling that of the entry model 13-inch MacBook Air. College students also have the opportunity to get the MacBook as low as $949, thanks to a $50 student discount offered when ordering either a MacBook or an iMac. The $1,599 version of the 12-inch MacBook, with increased flash storage, isn't available in Best Buy's current sale.

The Apple Holiday Event began earlier in December at Best Buy, and all of its deals are still running in the lead-up to Christmas. When activating on a two-year contract, the retailer is offering the 16GB versions of the iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus for $1 and $99.99, respectively. The iPad Air 2 has been cut by $125 for both cellular and Wi-Fi only options. A similar deal is running for the iPad mini 4, which has been reduced by $100 on each of its versions. The Apple Watch is also still available at a $100 discount.

Great deals. I feel like there have been usually high price cuts on Apple products not normally discounted this Christmas.
Agree. It's been a strange, lucky year, for those in need of Apple products.

I got an iPad Mini 4 64gb for $325 (normally $499), by price matching Best Buy ($399) at Target and using Target's Cyber Monday 15% off, 5% off target card, and coupons.

Thanks for the heads up! Best deal around. Just walked out of store with 2! Online it says limit one, but the store was willing to sell me two! Unfortunately the store I went to doesn't take ApplePay (the clerk told me the stores in my state don't). Would have been great to get another 22% off from Discover. I may check another store to be sure.
