Best Buy gets the jump on Black Friday with $320 iPad Air, $250 64GB iPod touch, $250 discount on AirPlay speaker
Offering shoppers the opportunity to "beat the Black Friday rush," Best Buy on Thursday began offering limited-time deals on Apple's iPad Air and iPod touch, as well as Beats by Dr. Dre headphones, and a significant discount on an iHome AirPlay-compatible speaker.
The sale, which runs through Saturday, includes the 2013 16-gigabyte iPad Air for $319.99, a savings of $80 off the regular price. Shoppers can also pick up the 32-gigabyte iPad Air for $369.99, while the 64-gigabyte model is on sale for $414.99, and the maximum-capacity 128-gigabyte version is discounted to $612.99.
Best Buy's pre-Black Friday discounts also include the fifth-generation 64-gigabyte iPod touch available for $249.99, a savings of $50 over its regular price.
Finally, the early sale also includes Apple's Beats by Dr. Dre Solo HD On-Ear Headphones, which are discounted $70 to $99.99. That reduced price applies to three color options: black, white and red.
iOS accessories are also available at reduced prices through Saturday, including a massive discount on the iHome AirPlay Speaker System. Regularly priced $299.99, shoppers can get the Wi-Fi connected speaker for just $49.99 — a $250 savings.
A smaller discount can be found on the Ultimate Ears BOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker, on sale for $179.99. That's $20 less than its regular price of $199.99.
