Staples Canada is gearing back to school with a special three-day Apple event taking place on August 30th/31st and September 1st. Here’s what’s on sale:
- 16GB WiFi 3rd Gen iPad: $479 (save $40)
- 32GB WiFi 3rd Gen iPad: $569 (save $50)
- 64GB WiFi+Cellular 3rd Gen iPad: $789 (save $60)
Previously, we have seen iPads on sale for $20 off at Future Shop and Best Buy.
- 3rd Gen 13.3″ MacBook Air: i5/4GB RAM/128GB SSD/USB 3.0 – $1129 (save $100)
- 3rd Gen 13.3″ MacBook Pro: i5/4GB RAM/500GB HD/USB 3.0 – $1129 (save $100)
- 21.5″ iMac: 2.5GHz i5/4GB/500GB – $1099 (save $100)
The 13.3″ MacBook Air and 21.5″ iMac is better than Apple’s Education pricing for the same models by $50, whereas the 13.3″ MacBook Pro matches it.
Do note Apple’s Back to School Promo is still ongoing until September 21st. Purchase an iPad and receive a $50 iTunes card; purchase any Mac and receive a $100 iTunes card.
Also, according to some Apple Stores I’ve talked to on the phone, they do match competitor pricing. So if you don’t have access to education pricing, march into a store and show them the Staples ad. Let me know if you’re going to do some shopping this weekend!
