Deals: Save on 2017 iMac and MacBook Pro (Up to $400 Off), and Get HomePod for $280

New discounts on a variety of Apple products have hit some of the major retailers this week, including sales on HomePod and the older 2017 models of the iMac and MacBook Pro.

HomePod

For the ‌HomePod‌, Costco is now providing its members a chance to save even further on the recently discounted smart speaker, priced at $279.99 in Costco retail stores, down from $299.00 on Apple's website and all other major retailers at the moment.

You'll have to be a Costco member to purchase the ‌HomePod‌, and if you opt for shipping a charge of $4.99 will be added onto the order. You can purchase the ‌HomePod‌ in both White and Space Gray from Costco, and it's unclear how long the discount will last.

iMac

For the ‌iMac‌, both Amazon and B&H Photo are discounting select models of Apple's desktop computer from mid 2017. This includes the 21.5-inch and 27-inch models, with savings of as much as $400 off the computer. The prices listed below are the best available online for each respective model, and start as low as $1,099.00 for the 21.5-inch ‌iMac‌.

The HomePod, even before Apple's price cut, often goes on sale so there's no reason to pay more than $250 for it.

I bought my first one the day it was release for full price, then added two more for $250 on a Black Friday sale. It turned out that sale lasted for a week or two beyond Black Friday, and it has returned to that price a few times since at Best Buy, Target, Microcenter, BH Photo, and others. Right now, OWC has it on sale for $248.88 ('https://eshop.macsales.com/item/Apple/MQHW2LLA').

To sum it up: Get yourself a HomePod, and don't pay more than $250 for it.

You can purchase the HomePod in both White ('https://www.costco.com/Apple-HomePod-Smart-Speaker%2c-White.product.100403559.html') and Space Gray ('https://www.costco.com/Apple-HomePod-Smart-Speaker%2c-Space-Gray.product.100408207.html') from Costco, and it's unclear how long the discount will last.
That will likely be Costco's member price going forward. They always had it listed at $329, or $20 off Apple's price, and have adjusted for Apple's price drop.
