Students normally receive a $ 100 discount on Apple's latest 13-inch MacBook Pro. But even if you are not a student, you are lucky. The newest 13-inch MacBook Pro from Apple is currently $ 1,199, $ 100 off from the regular price of $ 1,299 on Amazon. This is the first price decrease on the 2019 version, which comes standard with the Touch Bar and a True Tone display that can adjust the background lighting of the screen to the ambient light in the room. It also comes standard with an Intel Core i5 quad-core processor, so it's more powerful than the MacBook Air, in case you'd choose between the two.
If you are a student, the parent of a student or a school faculty, I recommend instead purchase through Apple. You get the same deal, plus Apple throws a set of Beats headphones as part of its back-to-school promotion.
Today is the last day that Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can get game vouchers. These vouchers are available in packages of two for $ 99.99, saving you $ 20 after redeeming them both. The selection of Nintendo Switch titles included in the promotion is impressive, so it is worth taking advantage of this deal if you plan to buy a few games.
If you are not a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber, you can easily sign up for the service in the eShop on your Switch or via a digital key provided with purchase via Amazon. If you buy the vouchers today, you have a year to use them, so if nothing appeals to you now, you have until July. By that time, for example Animal Crossing: New Horizons will be available, if that is a game that interests you.
Speaking of the Nintendo Switch, Woot sells the console for $ 274.99, that's $ 25 off the original price. It's a small discount, but these are new consoles, so it's worth checking if you have one on the market. In comparison with the Nintendo Switch Lite, which has recently entered the pre-order phase, this model can connect to your TV so that you can enjoy a couch.
Here are a few other offers that you should know:
- V-Moda BassFit wireless in-ear headphones are $ 99.99 (usually $ 129.99) until August 27 on Amazon. These are made for fitness and are resistant to sweat and water. V-Moda has a battery life of up to 11 hours.
- A 10-pack from AmazonBasics USB 3.1 Gen 1 to USB-C dongles is $ 29.90. Ten dongles may seem overkill, but it is a valuable investment if you have a 2018 Pro or a MacBook Pro with USB-C ports (such as the deal highlighted at the top of this post). These get good reviews on Amazon, so it makes sense to jump on this deal instead of opting for a more expensive alternative.
