Best Buy is currently holding an Apple Shopping Event, offering significant discounts on a range of Apple products, including the iPhone 7, iPhone SE, iPad Air 2, and select Mac models.

There are decent discounts on some Mac models, but now is not a good time to buy a Mac because updates are likely coming before the end of the year. The 27-inch iMac with 8GB RAM and a 1TB Fusion Drive is available for $1,899, a $100 discount. Apple is also selling two models of the MacBook Air at a $100 discount, dropping the price of the 128GB model to $900 and the 256GB model to $1,100.

Deep discounts are available on some original Apple Watch models with Sport devices available at prices as low as $189 and stainless steel models available at prices as low as $249.

Customers who purchase a 64GB iPhone SE on either Verizon or Sprint will pay the price for a 16GB device thanks to a $50 discount on a monthly installment plan. For AT&T customers, Best Buy is offering a $50 Best Buy gift card with the purchase of a 64GB iPhone SE.

For the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus, Best Buy is dropping the price by up to $300 with the trade-in of an eligible smartphone. For the entry-level 32GB iPhone 7, that drops the price from $649.99 to $349.99. Trade-in value for devices varies by model and condition.

Best Buy is also offering a free $100 Best Buy gift card with the purchase and activation (with a monthly installment plan) of a 256GB iPhone 7 on either Verizon or Sprint.

Love my SE. I finally made it to an Apple Store today while I was waiting on a friend. I like the new matte black of the iPhone 7, but for some reason it felt huge and clumsy. It's a little ridiculous because I owned an iPhone 6 for 1.5 years, but after 4 months with my iPhone SE I feel like the 4.7" screen is awkward. Though I know I'd adjust if the iPhone 7S/8 is as revolution as the unrealistic rumors claim. ;)

Yes. If you give an iPhone 6s 128GB perfectly new you might get the $300 discount.

Exactly. A 5S in excellent condition shows $87 for trade... guessing to get $300 you have to trade in a mint 6S+... nothing to see here

I got the 7 but I'm constantly thinking to go for the SE. IPhone 7 has been nothing but issue for me. I think is most software but it's annoying...

Honestly, I wasn't impressed with the 7. The home button felt artificial which was surprising since Force Touch has been so great on their other devices and the display model was incredibly laggy, but I don't fault the phone for that.

Depends on what you do. I heavily use the Pencil for drawing and writing. The True Tone display makes reading tremendously more pleasant in a subtle way. The speakers are finally powerful enough for casual listening as you work.

So for me, it is extremely different than an iPad Air 2.

I'm just having lot of little issues with the 7 that I have never experienced with the other upgrades in the past.

So far I have:
Service drop out including LTE and no GPS.

Yesterday my speaker made a pop sound and after that I have no sound until I restarted the phone. That happened three times.

I also noticed a few graphical issues. Display offset and all.

Maybe I should have just stayed with the 6 or have switched to SE. Oh well, at least I'm not paying much for the new phone after trade in. I guess that's the only good news.
