Amazon clears out 2018 MacBook Air inventory
Amazon is now taking $200 off Apple’s 2018 MacBook Air with prices starting at $999 shipped. Both the 128 and 256GB models are available in this sale. This is tied as the second-best price we’ve tracked at Amazon. Apple introduced a refreshed MacBook Air lineup yesterday, and now we’re seeing a number of notable discounts on the 2018 models. Features include a 13-inch Retina display, Touch ID, a dual-core 8th generation Intel i5 processor, and 128GB of storage. Two Thunderbolt 3 ports and up to 12 hours of battery life round out the list of notable features. Make good use of your savings and grab a USB-C hub. With four extra USB-A ports, this option from AmazonBasics is a great accessory to have in your arsenal.
Powerbeats3 Wireless Earbuds are $75
Today only, B&H offers the Beats By Dre Powerbeats3 Wireless Headphones in Asphalt Gray or Turf Green for $74.95. Originally $200, which Best Buy is still charging, these headphones typically go for around $100 these days at Amazon and other retailers. Powerbeats3 feature Apple’s W1 chip for fast wireless pairing, access to Siri and remote controls, and up to 12 hours of battery life. A five minute charge will deliver one hour of playback, which is great if you’re trying to get to the gym.

Get the Apple Watch Link Bracelet look for less
Treatlife Official (99% positive lifetime feedback) via Amazon is offering the Oittm Apple Watch Stainless Steel Band for $22. This is down from its near $35 going rate for one of the best discounts we’ve tracked historically. Though not identical to Apple’s much more expensive Stainless Steel Link Bracelet, this is a great way to get a similar look for much less. I personally own this band and always get compliments when I wear it.
