Rounding up the best Apple MacBook, iMac, iPad, and Apple Watch deals of Black Friday 2015

article thumbnail

With the 2015 shopping season now officially in full swing, finalized Apple Black Friday deals are now live. We've curated the creme of the crop in this roundup that highlights $50-$100 off Apple Watch, $25-$150 off current iPads, up to $650 off MacBooks, up to $500 off iMacs, and much, much more.

All of the following top offers have been carefully curated from our live Price Guides. This roundup also assumes you live outside NY state. If you live inside NY state, tax incentives are nonexistent so you should compare prices directly in our price guide.

A Note About Tax

Another benefit of purchasing from a value-added reseller is that some only collect sales tax on orders shipped to a handful of states. Keep the following in mind when comparing prices:

  • B&H Photo only collects sales tax on orders shipped to NY.
  • Adorama only collects sales tax on orders shipped to NY & NJ.
  • MacMall only collects sales tax on orders shipped to CA, CO, GA, IL, MN, NC, NY, TN, and WI.
  • Amazon collects sales tax on orders shipped to AZ, CA, CT, FL, GA, IL, IN, KS, KY, MD, MA, MI, MN, NV, NJ, NY, NC, ND, OH, PA, TN, TX, VA, WA, WV and WI.
  • Best Buy, Apple, Staples and other big box retailers collect sales tax on all orders.
