Like all Apple products, Macbooks are known for two things—their impressive design and their high-end price. While the most basic 2020 MacBook retails at $999, if you’re interested in upgrading features like the screen size, RAM or storage, you can easily end up spending over $2,000 when not on sale.
Thankfully, there’s pretty much always a MacBook sale running somewhere year-round. Check out a selection of current offers below, and if nothing catches your eye, be sure to set up a Deal Alert to be informed whenever a new MacBook discount becomes available.

  • Macbook Air: 13″ If budget is your main concern, the MacBook Air is the most affordable laptop Apple offers. The Air can be had in various configurations, including 2TB of storage and up to a 4-core Intel Core i7 processor. In other words, it’s a fantastic little 13.3″ laptop.
  • MacBook Pro 13″: If you’re looking for something with a bit more power but don’t want to sacrifice portability, then the MacBook Pro 13″ is a perfect middle-ground. From the base model, you get a much stronger processor than what’s typically seen in the MacBook Air, allowing you to take on more demanding tasks.
  • MacBook Pro 16″: This is the most powerful MacBook in the Apple lineup. Featuring even stronger processors than its smaller sibling, this 16″ powerhouse can tackle anything you throw at it.

Tips on Landing the Best MacBook Deals

The lowest price we’ve seen in the past year for a MacBook was $749 at Costco — although that was almost certainly due to a pricing error by the retailer. Typically, you’ll be able to land at least a 10% discount at one of many stores carrying the product. If there aren’t any good sales going on, students can always get $100 off their purchase through Apple’s Education Store.
Slickdealers commonly report discounts at B&H Photo, Adorama, and even HHGregg — make sure to check out these retailers before pulling the trigger on your purchase. MacBooks don’t often see a price cut larger than that, so if you happen across such a promotion be sure to act before it’s gone.
