Costco has begun selling Apple computers online to Costco members, with discounts ranging from $ 50 to $ 200.
One of the most remarkable offers is the new MacBook Air, starting at $ 1200, you buy it directly from Apple. Costco sells the basic model of the new MacBook Air for $ 1000 – a $ 200 discount. It's a price that some technical reviewers feel is more appropriate for the laptop computer seen as a go-to-entry model for anyone who wants an Apple laptop experience.
(In fact, there's only a difference of $ 100 between the new MacBook Air base on MacBook Air and the 13-inch MacBook Pro base, if you buy from Apple. With such a small price difference, customers can get a little more powerful MacBook Pro over the new MacBook Air.)
Before Costco's offer was the best price you could get on a new MacBook Air base model, $ 1,050 from Amazon -A $ 150 discount. For those who are not Costco members, and plan not to sign up, Amazon's MacBook Air offers remain among the best.
If the agreement makes tempted you to sign up for Costco's membership, it should be noted that membership starts at $ 60 per year. So if you do not plan to trade much on Costco after signing up, the Amazon agreement may be better for you.
Aside from MacBook Air, Costco also sells MacBooks, MacBook Pros and iMacs on the online store with discounts, as well as AppleCare + included on some models. AppleCare + can vary between $ 170 for iMacs for $ 380 for 15-inch MacBook Pros.
It's usually rare to find offers on new Apple products, but this is not the first time this year, there have been significant discounts on new devices: Apple has recently started offering up to $ 100 extra in credit if you trade in a old device through the Giveback program and buy the new iPhone XR.
