How to get the lowest prices on Apple's new MacBook Pros with instant coupons, tax-free options

Apple's new family of MacBook Pros introduced Tuesday are on their way to the company's largest authorized resellers, and AppleInsider has again teamed with a pair of its sponsors to offer readers the lowest prices anywhere on standalone 2013 MacBook Pros as well as those bundled with 3 years of AppleCare protection.

MacBook Air


The new MacBook Pro with Retina display lineup brings Intel's fourth-generation Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, with next-generation integrated graphics, 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity and new memory options from 4GB up to 16GB. With the component changes, the new 13-inch Pro has a battery life of nine hours, while the larger-screened 15-inch version can go up eight hours per charge. Apple also shaved $200 from the starting price of both the 13- and 15-inch models, bringing the thin but powerful laptops down to $1,299 and $1,999, respectively.

However, any AppleInsider readers who click through the MacMall links in this article (see table below) or our Price Guides and then enter Promo Code APPLEINSIDER01 on the product page will save an additional 3% off the retailer's already discounted prices, yielding the lowest prices anywhere on the just-announced MacBook Pros (as well as MacBook Airs and iMacs).

MacMall, which is the No.1 direct seller of Apple technology behind Apple itself, tells us that it will begin shipping these new MacBook Pros starting this evening and into tomorrow (Wednesday). The 3% AppleInsider reader discount is available only when ordering online and online orders are processed in the order they are received. It's also worth noting that unlike large retail chains like Best Buy, Apple and Target, MacMall only collects sales tax in CA, NY, IL, WI, MN, CO, TN, NC and GA. This will yield even greater savings for readers outside those states.

New MacBook Pros with AppleCare



Meanwhile, readers who are looking to bundle their new MacBook Pro with 3 years of AppleCare Extended Warranty Protection can use the links in our guides for exclusive pricing on MacBook Pro+AppleCare bundles from B&H Photo, as can be seen in the segment of our Mac+AppleCare Price Guide below. More specifically, this promotion discounts Apple's $249 AppleCare protection plan for 13" and smaller MacBooks to just $179.99 and cuts the price of the $349 plan for 15" and larger notebooks to just $244 — a savings of $69 and $105, respectively.

MacBook Air


The Manhattan-based super store is one of the world's largest volume sellers of all things electronics, and only charges sales tax to orders shipped to its home state of New York. The option to attach an AppleCare plan will appear when you click the "PRE-ORDER" or "ADD TO CART" buttons. If you run into trouble adding these bundles to your cart, see our easy 5-step help guide. B&H says it will start shipping units on Wednesday and throughout the week.

If you do not see your desired configuration, check back soon as more configurations are expected to propagate into the guides over the next 48 hours.

Upgrade for less



Also, if you are upgrading from a previous MacBook, don't forget to lock in a price quote now from Gazelle or one of the other buy-back services listed in the price guides that will pay you in cash or gift cards for your used Apple gear. This helps mitigate the cost of purchasing new hardware. For example, Gazelle is currently buying used MacBook Pros in "Good" condition for in excess of $600 cash, and used MacBook Pro Retinas for over $700 cash.
