Amazon today has Apple's MagSafe Charger for $29.98, down from $39.00. This sale is just a couple of cents off from the lowest price we've ever seen on this accessory, and it's one of the best prices available online this week. It's also being matched at Walmart.

The MagSafe Charger perfectly aligns with the magnets on the iPhone 12 family of devices and provides wireless charging. It also maintains compatibility with Qi charging, so any iPhone 8 or later device can still use it, as well as AirPods with a Wireless Charging Case and AirPods Pro.

For optimal charging, Apple recommends using a 20W USB-C Power Adapter with the MagSafe Charger, but it's sold separately. However, Costco members this week can save on both of these accessories when bundled together, priced at $39.99. Individually, the 20W USB-C Power Adapter costs $19.00 and the MagSafe Charger costs $39.00, so you're essentially getting the Power Adapter at no extra cost with this deal.

Of course, you'll need to be a Costco member to see the deal and be able to purchase it. You'll have until September 10 before the sale ends, and there is a limit of two per member. Head to our full Deals Roundup to get caught up with all of the latest deals and discounts that we've been tracking over the past week.

Bundle in the power adapter as well, then I'd consider it a 'deal'.

The term "Charger" just doesn't quite convey that you're just getting a power cord and not getting a power adapter to charge with for that price. Nice price for the cord if you're wanting one - as others have mentioned a new version is coming.

MagSafe power cord actually conveys what you're getting here. Calling it a charger is misleading to most folks on the street. JMHO.

My personal general rule of thumb is if amazon is offering a discount on an apple product, it is because something newer is coming out soon and they want to try to unload as much of their excess product as possible before it happens.

To this day, I really don't "get it." I plug mine in quite happily with a lightning cable. I'm not sure what benefit buying one of these gives. I can see that if someone has a disability such as poor sight it could help, so that's good. But I don't see much benefit beyond that.
I have a MagSafe "base" that is semi-permanently affixed to my nightstand. Getting into bed (or occasionally after a quick look at the phone while already in bed), it's easy to casually toss the phone on the MagSafe and know it will align and charge. No fumbling with cables in the dark. No chance you mis-align with a standard Qi charger and wake up to a dead phone.

Not sure I would jump on this yet, as potential new models might support data transfer as well.
