Best Buy drops Apple Watch pricing to as low as $249 with new wave of $100 discounts

Apple retail partner Best Buy kicked off major discounts on the Apple Watch on Wednesday, offering $100 off its inventory of Apple Watch Sport and stainless steel Apple Watch models for a limited time, marking the lowest price points yet for the wearable. Some shoppers may also find equivalent or better deals at Apple authorized reseller B&H as well.

The new discounts mean customers can buy an Apple Watch for as little as $249 for a 38-millimeter, which is the steepest out-the-door price seen on the device since it launched in April.

The larger 42-millimeter Sport version starts starts at $299 with the $100 savings, while stainless steel Apple Watch models can be had starting at $$449. Best Buy also ships orders for free.

Some customers may find even greater savings with AppleInsider partner B&H, which has also knocked $50 off all models and is including a $50 B&H gift card for free with each purchase. Unlike Best Buy, B&H will not collect sales tax on your order if you live outside New York, and shipping remains free.

Therefore, shoppers outside of New York state may find a greater value proposition from B&H's promotion.
