Deals: Take $300 Off 21.5-Inch iMac and Get $10 Amazon Credit When Buying $100 Apple Gift Card

We're tracking a pair of last-minute Christmas deals on Amazon today, including a record low price on the 21.5-inch iMac and free Amazon gift card credit with the purchase of an Apple Gift Card.

21Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Starting with the iMac, you can get the 21.5-inch iMac (2.3GHz, 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) from mid 2020 for $799.00, down from $1,099.00. This is now the best price we've ever seen on this version of the iMac.

This iMac is an older model, so it has the classic silver aluminum design with a large black bezel, and doesn't have the M1 chip. Amazon also has the 2020 27-inch iMac (8GB RAM, 256GB SSD) on sale for $1,399.99, and both of these desktop computers can deliver before Christmas.

Next, Amazon is offering $10 in promotional credit when you buy the $100 Apple Gift Card. Simply choose a design for the Apple Gift Card, select the $100 denomination, enter a recipient, and then enter the code APPLEDIGITAL at checkout.

The Apple Gift Card will be delivered via email, so you don't need to worry about shipping delays if you're shopping for stocking stuffers. Only one gift card can be purchased per customer, and Amazon hasn't specified how long this sale will last.

That thing was overpriced by 2x even when it was introduced.

If you really need a small Intel iMac better look out for a used specimen of the last proper 21.5" from 2019. 3.xGHz Quadcore, dedicated Radeon GFX and 4k for about the same price (if not lower)

Absolutely nobody should be buying that 21.5inch iMac anymore.
Agreed. But I worry that a lot of first time Mac buyers still grab that model, not knowing the difference.

So, with that horrendous spinning drive (or even the slightly less crappy fusion drive) these people end up getting a bad experience and then think Apple computers are crap.

In other words, even selling this thing at all hurts their brand name.

Does this indicate that the 21.5" iMac is getting a refresh soon?
No. The 21.5" Intel iMacs have been replaced by the 24" M1 iMacs. No more Intel iMacs.

I don't think there is a 2020 21.5. Is that the 2017 with the 7th gen? Pass.
