Best Buy beats Prime Day to the punch with a record-breaking MacBook Air deal

2 Min Read

The Apple MacBook Air M2 has fallen to just $799 (was $999) at Best Buy today – a new record-low price for this excellent Ultrabook.

Today’s price cut comes just ahead of rival Amazon’s annual Prime Day sale next week and beats the previous record by a whole $50. We’d be surprised if this MacBook went any lower over the next few weeks so this could just be the MacBook deal of the year so far. 

Even better still, Best Buy’s trade-in program lets you hand over a similar laptop for a rebate of up to $825. Using the provided trade-in value tool, we’ve calculated that you can get a decent $425 off by trading in a MacBook Air M1, which means you could get the newer model for under $400 in total.

[Editor’s note]: We’ve just spotted that the MacBook Air is also available at Amazon for the same price right now. Note, that Amazon doesn’t have a trade-in deal currently, however.

Either way, Best Buy’s current listing for the M2 is an absolute bargain. While it’s no longer the latest model (there’s a M3 iteration now), it’s still an excellent laptop for 2024. Not only are you essentially getting the latest design here (complete with narrow bezels), but the M2 chip is more than capable of handling even intensive workloads. As always, you’ll also get that superb battery life that the MacBook Air is known for too.
