Deals: Best Buy Flash Sale Offers $300 Off Ceramic and Stainless Steel Apple Watch Series 3 Cellular Models

by

Best Buy's latest flash sale is for the Apple Watch Series 3 today only, particularly those models with GPS and Cellular capabilities. In the sale, you can save $300 on the Ceramic/Sports Band and Stainless Steel/Milanese Loop collections.

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

This brings the 42mm Stainless Steel Case with Milanese Loop down to $449.00, from $749.00, and the 38mm White Ceramic Case with Soft White/Pebble Sport Band down to $999.00, from $1,299.00. These represent the best prices available online for the Apple Watch GPS + Cellular models, and some of the best-ever discounts on the wearables since Series 3 launched last fall.

Head to Best Buy's Daily Deals page to check out the models on sale and place your order before they expire later tonight. It's still worth noting that the Apple Watch Series 4 is just under one week away at this point.

B&H Photo is also continuing to offer nice discounts on the latest 2018 MacBook Pro in a few configurations, including the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (2.3 GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) for $1,599.00, down from $1,799.00.


If you're looking for a larger display, the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (2.2 GHz, 16GB RAM, 256GB SSD) is on sale for $2,099.00, down from $2,399.00. B&H Photo originally said this sale would end on August 31, but it has been extended to September 8 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Adorama is also still matching the discounts.

On Amazon, Anker has shared its newest collection of discounts, which are live through mid September and don't require any promo codes:

Additionally, MacRumors and Magix have again partnered to offer our readers an exclusive discount on one of the multimedia software maker's bundles, called Sound Forge Pro Mac 3. The offer includes savings of up to 60 percent off, with Sound Forge Pro Mac 3 priced at $229.00, down from $557.00.


For those interested, Sound Forge Pro Mac 3 is an advanced audio editing suite with multi-channel recording and editing, mastering for music and dialogue clips, and support for high-resolution audio recording at 24 bits with sampling rates as high as 192kHz. The new sale will run through October 31, 2018. For more information on the software, visit Magix's website.

There are plenty of other deals going on as we enter the weekend, including App Store and iTunes gift card savings at Sam's Club, back to school savings on Mac apps like Pixelmator Pro and Fantastical 2, and ongoing $50 discounts on the HomePod at Best Buy and Costco. Be sure to check out our full Deals Roundup for information on these sales and more.

It's going to have to be $100 or less for me to forgo that beautiful new display on Apple Watch Series 4.

Time to clear stock. The 3 is a great watch, the stainless price is tempting.

That stainless price is VERY tempting. The battery on my Series 0 is getting worse and I really want to upgrade.

As a happy Series 0 Stainless with Milanese owner, I'd do the Series 3 Black Stainless with Milanese deal in a heartbeat if the Series 4 did not offer an upgrade I find worth paying the MSRP for (especially since I expect to get years of use from the Series 4 as I have from my S0).
