FYI regarding the homepod that's on sale - I purchased a homepod last year, set it up and excitedly said "Hey Siri, play (e.g.) Bob Dylan" and it replied saying it couldn't find anything!! My music is essentially a lifetime of CDs that I've purchased and ripped into iTunes, but that miserable homepod couldn't find any songs at all in my library via voice command!! I called Apple support and they promptly told me that the homepod is intended for an Apple Music subscription (where I'm paying every month) and it doesn't work in situations like mine. I need to always be paying. So I promptly returned it, laughing all the way to store at the stupidity of the Apple marketing team behind that greed induced decision.

I must be dumb...I do not see the option for the $100 iTunes gift cards at 20% off. I am even logged in with my Best Buy account.
Only the ones that say "on sale now" have the discount now. Otherwise, these are previews of what you will see on Black Friday, November 29th.

The one with the questionable CPU thermal cooling and butterfly keyboard. Even with the extended warranty on the keyboard for four years that is still down time for repairs and the thermal cooling issue with CPU that retina MBA is just looks waiting for a proper redesign.

I purchased some 2017 MBA i7 2.2GHz and 512GB as gifts, can’t beat that keyboard and upgradable storage. The benefit of the 900p res screen means 12hrs or more of battery life and of I am going to watch anything there’s AirPlay or Cast. Plus a SD card reader.
Can't you just be happy that I did some research and bought something that works for my purposes instead of picking and finding fault with other people's choices? That's ok, I refuse to allow your problems to become my problems.

Just ordered my another HomePod at a GREAT price from Best Buy. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I honestly think the $299 regular price is a little over priced but I won't argue a bit about paying $199 for a HomePod.
