Apple products are indisputably some of the best in the tech industry. With millions iPhone users around the world, it’s safe to say Apple’s popularity is truly unmatched. Unfortunately, the prices of most Apple products are reflective of their quality and popularity–they tend to come at a steep price, and discounts are generally hard to come by.

However, if you’re really hoping to snag a deal on that pink iPhone 13 or sleek black HomePod you’ve been eyeing, it is possible to save money on Apple products–it just takes some patience and thinking outside the box! Of course, product protection is a great place to start when it comes to saving money. By purchasing extended warranty coverage for your Apple products, you'll be covered in the event they break down or are damaged in any way.

What are the best hacks to save money on Apple products?

If you’re looking for ways to save money on your next Apple purchase, we’ve got you covered. Here are some hacks that can help.

Apple Black Friday deals

If you’re willing to wait, Black Friday is the best time of the year to find Apple deals, especially when it comes to older generation products. Many major retailers, such as Walmart, Best Buy, Target, and Costco offer significant markdowns on older Apple models during Black Friday, especially if a new generation has recently been released.

Discounts may come in various forms (such as rebates, gift cards, or traditional markdowns), so pay close attention to Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals–you might be able to snag a major discount!

Apple Trade-Ins

Another reliable way to save money on Apple products is by using the Apple Trade-In system. Have an old iPhone, MacBook, or Apple Watch that’s collecting dust in your house? Or are you hoping to replace a device you’re currently using? For many of their products, Apple allows you to trade in your old Apple device, choose a replacement, and get a discount on your new purchase based on how much your old device is worth. If you’re not ready to immediately replace the product you’re trading in, Apple also offers the option of a gift card that you can use toward a future purchase.

On top of getting a sweet deal, Apple makes the trade-in process simple. They’ll either ship a box to your home for you to return the product, or you can visit an Apple store. It’s quick and easy!

Apple Education Pricing

Did you know that Apple offers student and teacher discounts? Known as Apple Education Pricing, Apple offers special deals on select products for teachers, college students, and their parents. The discount applies to Macs and iPads (not iPhones, HomePods, Apple Watches, and other Apple products), and the discount is usually around $100 per device. If you fall into one of the included groups, Apple Education Pricing is a great way to save money on a new computer or tablet.

Buy refurbished products

If you’re looking for a hefty discount and don’t mind buying used, Apple’s Certified Refurbished products are a great way to get the lowest price possible on an Apple Watch, iPad, or other products. While the term “refurbished” typically makes people suspicious, Apple’s refurbished products undergo a thorough inspection and certification process and come equipped with a one-year warranty.

However, while buying refurbished products can help you save money upfront, typically, it precludes you from purchasing extended warranty plans that can protect the long-term value of your purchase. For example, if your refurbished Apple Watch gets smashed or has a hardware malfunction outside of AppleCare’s one-year warranty, you’ll be on your own for repairing or replacing it.
