Anybody wanting an iPad mini 4 before they're possibly discontinued should jump on that sale price of $299.99 for the 128GB model.

Lol on me. I bought a Nike Space gray watch two days ago at Best Buy. I can't even go and get the price difference credited because I'm across the country now. I knew when I bought it that this might happen because of Memorial Day sales being right around the corner. But I didn't have much choice because I was heading out the very next day for a hiking trip.

I bought the watch as sort of an emergency purchase after finding out just as I was packing up my stuff that my gold sport watch bricked itself. I hadn't worn my Stainless or the gold for months--I have been wearing my Gear S2 watch. But I am on a hiking trip and I really wanted to track my progress as well as keep up with texts from my fellow hikers and the coordinators--who are all on iMessage. Also, the band on my Gear S2 Sport is really not good in the heat and it's hard to find good alternatives on eBay that won't break my skin out in a rash. My Gear S2 Classic is a dress watch and too heavy for what I needed.

So I ran out and got the Nike watch at full price the evening before heading out of town. My stainless Apple Series 1 watch is on extended loan to my daughter who is also on the hike. She was going to use the gold sport to track her progress until we discovered it was as dead as a canned tuna. I will sort that out when I get back home.

p.s. I'm loving the Nike Swiss cheese band!

I follow BB's sales literally every 5 minutes. This memorial day sale is basically a collective sale of all the everyday sales of Apple items. Nothing out of the ordinary. For example, over the past 2 months, I counted a total of 3 weeks of discounted 13'' MacBook Pro models (latest version) with $200 off, 3 weeks of discounted MacBook Air models with $100-200 off; total of 4-5 one-day sales of newest 12'' MacBook $350 discounts, etc. iPhones, iPads, they discount them all the time on latest models.

Plus, new MacBook refresh is around the corner. Wouldn't hurt to hold a while and see what Apple has for WWDC and decide. Those same discounts will reappear any time and repeatedly in the future as long as you keep an eye on the particular item you want.

Wait until Black Friday for the best deals on the newest things? o_O

Anybody think it's a bad idea to purchase an iPad Pro now? I finally got to play with the 9.7 with Smart Keyboard the other day, and I fell for it. With WWDC coming up and new iPads being possibly announced, not sure if I should wait or jump on this deal.

I doubt (Aside from the rumors) we will an iPad refresh during WWDC. However, if you wanted to play it safe, You could wait one week to see for sure what happens. Otherwise, I wouldn't hesitate for the Pro/Keyboard.

Might jump on the Apple Watch. But really want to wait for series 3 to come out so that series 2 will be even more discounted.
