At this point, they should just make it an entire month long sale everywhere. It's getting to be ridiculous. Then, a few days before Christmas, they should double all of the prices to get the procrastinators.

Doesn't matter how good that deal is, I'm not buying a laptop with only 8GB of RAM or 256GB Storage in 2023... 16GB/512GB should be the bare minimum now.

Everyday a sale. Tragedy of the commons. "Sale" becomes meaningless. Retailers and their media messengers dependent on them for income shooting themselves in the foot.

It's been like this for years.... sales, on all year round... the sale really has well and truly become meaningless. Even worse.. you have to do your work to find out if the 'sale' price is actually a good deal compared to the items 'usual' price. This applies to all retailers, everywhere.

Ive seen a few instances where the price, not long after such big 'sales', were actually lower than the 'sale' price.
There were good old days (around 2010 for sure when I got my first MBP) when Apple products were sold at a fixed price regardless of where you bought it.

I am using the M2 MBA base 13" model right now and I really like the size, especially traveling back and forth to work.

Local Apple store will match Best Buy prices up to 10% of item, provided the exact item is in stock in both places (i.e. at Apple and at a local Best Buy). This means you should be able to get $110 off the 256GB M2 MBA, and $140 off the 512GB M2 MBA at Apple. Best Buy still wins, but if you don't have a membership, buying from Apple will allow you to take advantage of Apple's generous holiday return policy.
