AI Deals: $100-$200 off 17 mid-2014 MacBook Pros; Free AppleCare with any Mac; $20 cash bonus on iPad trade-insThis weekend AppleInsider is highlighting a number of exclusive offers — some new and some about to expire — such as $100-$200 discounts on a dozen additional mid-2014 MacBook Pro models, free 3-year AppleCare Protection Plans with the purchase of any Mac, and a $20 cash trade-in bonus on any iPad valued at $75 or more.
$100-$200 off 17 mid-2014 MacBook Pros
Earlier this week we noted aggressive price reductions on mid-2014 MacBook Pros within Apple's authorized reseller channel. One reseller, MacMall, offers AI readers an additional 3% off those reduced prices when using the links below or in the Price Guides and then applying Promo / Coupon Code APPLEINSIDER01. This translated to the most advantageous pricing ever for stock configuration MacBook Pros so shortly after their introduction. Since then, MacMall has extended those discounts to a number of CTO models, many of which are either in stock or shipping within 2-5 days. Some of the highlights are listed below with their savings off Apple's MSRP. Those savings don't factor in the additional $100-$250 that many readers will save since MacMall will only collect sales tax on orders shipped to CA, CO, GA, IL, MN, NC, NY, TN, and WI.
