Apple Watch Best Buy

One day only for Apple Watch deal

Apple will surely prefer this news to the “Apple Watch Severely Burns Danish Man” stories that are presently making their way around the Internet. For those looking for an Apple Watch, today is clearly the day to head over to the Best Buy website and get one today well before anyone sits down to a turkey dinner with family and friends.

Today and today only, the big box retailer of electronics is offering $50 off the Apple Watch Sport as well as $100 off the stainless steel Apple Watch. In order to take advantage of these significant savings you will have to use a promo code at checkout. For the Apple Watch Sport use AWSPORTDEAL. For the stainless steel Apple Watch use promo code AWDEAL.

The deals bring the starting price of the Apple Watch Sport down to $249 and the price of the Apple Watch with stainless steel band down to $249.

Best Buy’s Early Access sale will end on 11/24/15 at 11:59 p.m. CST. That means 9:59 p.m. PST and 12:59 a.m. EST. Mountain time? You can do your own math.

Future of the Apple Watch

The sizable discount that Best Buy is offering was surely negotiated with Apple. The drop in price suggests that Apple may have a 2nd-generation wearable in the works with a number of Apple websites and tech speculation sites calling for an Apple Watch 2 sometime in the second quarter of 2016 though this is mere rumor and speculation. Other rumors have the Apple Watch 2 coming equipped with a Facetime camera and the ability to use the device without owning an iPhone.

Apple has been fairly cagey about how many Apple Watches it has sold citing “competitive reasons” but a number of websites including VentureBeat suggest that the Apple Watch may have brought in just shy of $2 billion in new revenue for the Cupertino, CA giant.

Best Buy’s additional Apple deals

Lastly, if an iPad Air 2 tickles your fancy, Best Buy is offering $100 of the 16GB and 64GB models if you use the promo code IPADAIR2DEAL. For those looking at the 128GB model, Best Buy will give you $125 off if you use IPADSAVE125DEAL.
