Killer Deal: Save up to $250 on Apple's new Macs plus get a 3-Year AppleCare Protection Plan for free (up to $749 off 2013 MacBook Pros)As part of its ongoing effort to deliver the lowest prices anywhere on Apple's Macs and iOS devices, AppleInsider is teaming up with Apple Authorized Reseller Adorama to give away 3-Year AppleCare Protection Plans with the purchase of each Mac from now till Aug. 12th. When combined with instant discounts of up to $250 on the Macs themselves, plus added tax-savings benefits in 48 of 50 states, the average savings from this promotion range from $300 and $800 off MSRP.
To take advantage of the offer, begin by selecting your Mac of choice from the Adorama column (far right) in our Macs + AppleCare Price Guide (also below). These links will take you to a page on Adorama's website with a higher price than you see in the price guide, because it bundles in the cost of the 3-Year AppleCare Protection Plan (you'll deduct that cost in a moment).
If you don't already have a free Adorama VIP account, you'll need to take 10 seconds to register for one so that you can add the Mac+AppleCare bundle to your cart. (It also gives you a few benefits like a free 30GB of cloud storage). After you register, you can then add your selected Mac + AppleCare bundle to your cart and begin the checkout process.
Once you enter a delivery address and select a shipping preference (but before you're required to provide any payment info) you'll be presented with a "Gift / Coupon Code" field. Enter coupon code AP08072014 and click "Apply." The coupon code will disappear and you should now see the advertised price in the upper right-hand side of the window.
If you're shipping your Mac+AppleCare bundle to any state other than NY and NJ, this will be your final price, as Adorama does not charges tax on orders shipped to the other 48 states. This typically adds another $70-$200 in savings for most customers.
We've also published a Illustrated Step-by-Step Help Guide for any readers who may hit a snag in the process, or who prefer to see the coupon redemption process visually before proceeding. (Readers can also see: What is AppleCare for Mac and What Does it Cover?)
If you do not see your desired configuration in the Macs + AppleCare Price Guide, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know which configuration you're looking for and we'll try and make it happen.
Please Note: This promotion is available only when ordering from Adorama's website and will remain active while supplies last. If an item is listed as out of stock, orders placed for that item will be shipped in the order they are received. Most current Macs are shipping out within 24 hours, but some special configurations could take a few days longer.
