How we choose the best Memorial Day Apple deals

Our team of expert shoppers and deal-hunters have been reviewing and working with Apple products of all varieties for many years. We pride ourselves on helping buyers understand which major sales and deals are legitimately good and which are more routine. That includes Black Friday, Prime Day, Memorial Day and countless other shopping events. We’ve gotten very good at weeding out scams and superficial deals so you see only the best offers from retailers all over. 

We look for real discounts, quality reviews and remaining sale time when choosing a deal to show you. 

  • Real discounts mean exactly that. We look at the price history for that product to make sure no manufacturers are inflating prices to make the discount seem more substantial than it is.
  • Quality reviews are important for any product, but especially for deeply discounted items even when they’re made by Apple. If it doesn’t get updates anymore, for example, the discount wasn’t really worthwhile. 
  • Remaining sale time is a huge part of our vetting process. If a deal seems like it will only be around for a short while or will only be available for the remaining stock, we’ll let you know up front so you don’t come back to the deal later only to be disappointed.
