Last month, Apple dropped the price on all of its USB-C adapters and accessories by $6 to $20 until December 31. Today, it has extended that discount until March 31, 2017 for many of the products.

apple-usb-c-cable
A full list of prices on the adapters in the United States is below:

- USB-C to USB Adapter - Was $19, now $9
- Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter - Was $49, now $29
- USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter - Was $69, now $49
- USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter - Was $69, now $49
- USB-C to Lightning Cable (1m) - Was $25, now $19
- USB-C to Lightning Cable (2m) - Was $35, now $29

The discounts may please customers who have been dissatisfied with the high price of the MacBook Pro, coupled with the need to buy a wide range of adapters to use the new notebook with older peripherals.

Apple:

"We recognize that many users, especially pros, rely on legacy connectors to get work done today and they face a transition. We want to help them move to the latest technology and peripherals, as well as accelerate the growth of this new ecosystem. Through the end of the year, we are reducing prices on all USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 peripherals we sell, as well as the prices on Apple's USB-C adapters and cables."

Apple similarly extended its discount on the now-available LG UltraFine 5K Display until March 31.

Apple's philosophy.

We created a very expensive computer that can't really connect to anything. It's the "future," you know. Don't worry! We will sell you these outrageously priced dongles. What? Not happy? Ok, look... we will sell them to you at discounted but still ridiculously high prices for a limited time. We'll return to gauge you with outrageously priced dongles by March when you are too tiered to be angry at us. You're welcome! :D

It's very nice of them. No one (not Microsoft, not Dell, not HP, not Compaq) offered adaptors or cables at any type of discount when USB first rolled out in the late '90s. We all had to buy $40-60 adaptors to make printers, CD burners, and other peripheral work with our new machines.
Stop lying. You didn't. I was heavily into the PC scene in the late 90s when USB came out. Your shiny new USB equipped PC came with USB, Parallel, and Serial ports for those peripherals. So you could use the old stuff and the new stuff.

Of course they did. It'll probably be extended again in March. I'm surprised they have announced a permanent reduction.
