Last Call: Free Apple SuperDrive and the lowest prices anywhere on MacBook + AppleCare bundles (save

Posted:
in Current Mac Hardware edited March 2015
In yet another holiday deal that only AppleInsider can deliver, we've teamed up with Apple Authorized Reseller Adorama to give away a free Apple USB SuperDrive (for using CDs/DVDs) to every customer who purchases a MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, non-Retina iMac, or Mac Pro bundled with AppleCare. These bundles offer the absolute lowest prices anywhere, even before the SuperDrive is thrown in.




Through Thurs., Dec 11th only: Adorama and AppleInsider are teaming up to offer around 200 specially priced Mac + AppleCare bundles that -- in addition to discounts on the Macs themselves -- also include steep discounts on the bundled 3-year AppleCare Protection Plan (free with Mac Pros) plus a free Apple USB SuperDrive thrown in to boot. This offer is ideal for customers who want to take advantage of the sleek profile of Apple's latest MacBooks (which don't include optical drives) but still maintain the ability to occasionally play (or burn) CDs, DVDs, and optical data discs. Adorama also only collects sales tax on orders that ship to NY and NJ, which sweetens the offer for most domestic shoppers.

To take advantage of the promotion, readers need to click through the Adorama price links inside our Mac+AppleCare Price Guides (also below) and then apply exclusive promo code APHOLIDAYS during the checkout process. The code works on every bundle in the Mac+AppleCare Price Guides with the exception of the new iMac 5Ks and Mac minis. Please note that you must be inside the Mac+AppleCare Price Guides and not the regular Mac Price Guide.

Here's a step-by-step guide to making sure you get the price listed in our price guides:
    1) Make sure your using a browser with cookies enabled that isn't in private mode and head on over you the Mac+AppleCare Price Guide.
    2) Select your Mac + AppleCare bundle of choice by clicking the associated pricing link under the Adorama column.
    3) When the Adorama page loads, it will display a price for the bundle that is $72.99 more than what's listed in the Mac+AppleCare Price Guide (we will deduct that $72.99 in a minute).
    4) If you haven't already, you must take 10 seconds to register for a free Adorama VIP account before adding the Mac + AppleCare bundle to your cart.
    5) Now add the bundle to your cart by clicking the green "ADD TO CART" button
    6) Continue on with the checkout process by clicking "Proceed to Checkout" on the next two screens.
    7) On the next page of the checkout process, you'll be asked to provide shipping info and then payment info.
    8) At the top of the Payment section, there's a link that says "Do you have a gift card or promo code?" Click it and enter promo code APHOLIDAYS and then click apply.
    9) Now scroll down the page. If all went well, you should see "Promo Savings -$72.99" right above the green "Place Order" button.
    10) You can now proceed to place your order.
If you experience any issues, you can mail us at [email protected] and we'll do our best to help you sort out the issue.

Please note that this promotion is only available online and will expire Dec 11th, 2014 at midnight ET with absolutely no exceptions. Also note that while the Black Friday and Cyber Monday shopping days have left many Mac models out of stock at Apple Authorized Resellers, new orders for out of stock items are currently being filled in 7-10 business days unless otherwise noted on Adorama's website. Macs that aren't shipping in 7-10 business days generally have a note on their product pages explaining that the product is "on allocation" or that there's "no estimate for arrival" (here's an example of one such product).

    All that space devoted to Mac Pro configurations, when the current Mac Pro is virtually EOL. Haswell Xeons are already widely available for Apple to update the Mac Pro after the holiday season (and return window) ends.

    All these deals you show are US-centric - anything happening for the UK or Europe?

    Maybe that’s why they’re discounting them.

    Well, of course, but now is likely a very bad time to buy such an expensive system. And those are only half-way decent discounts because of sales tax-avoidance.

     

    Just wait a few weeks for the announcement of significantly faster (and possibly more expandable and more energy efficient) models.

    Either that or because lately MacBooks have been causing so many problems! Seriously, I just had to spend $25 today at www.detoxyourmac.com because my MacBook slowed down THAT much over that past month. It's lightning fast now and will be that way forever after spending that money, but it's not something I should have had to do. I wish I would get a discount on the Retina or something!
