Certain Apple Stores will take $50 off the Apple Watch if an iPhone is bought at the same time
Starting today, and running though November 15th, certain Apple Stores are offering $50 off the purchase of an Apple Watch Sport or Apple Watch if any iPhone is purchased at the same time. The promotion was confirmed to Mac Rumors by an Apple spokesman, and is being offered by participating Apple Stores located in California and Massachusetts.

This is actually a perfect deal for those looking to buy the Apple Watch, because the timepiece needs to be paired with an Apple iPhone 5, Apple iPhone 5s, Apple iPhone 6, Apple iPhone 6 Plus, Apple iPhone 6s or Apple iPhone 6s Plus to work at its full capabilities. Just keep in mind that the deal does not cover the top-of-the-line Apple Watch Edition models, or the Apple Watch Herm├Ęs timepieces. With the discount, the cheapest Apple Watch Sport model gets cut in price to $299.

The purchase of both the Apple Watch and the Apple iPhone must be done in one transaction. There is no word from Apple about whether it plans on expanding the deal to other Apple Stores.

IKR? The problem here is, they are hardly being bought and Apple isn't doing anything to encourage sales. How about you just drop the price to 199.99 and just maybe people will buy. Looks like McDonald's can't sell its hamburgers...lol.

So when retailers drop prices on android phones and accessories to clear the shelves - that's different?

Apple products are all overpriced. You are not paying for latest tech, but a brand which hippies and idiots made them a fame.

That is always true of Apple. Also AlikMalix you want an answer for your what's the difference. Well for starters the Apple Watch has only been on the market for 6 months. Apple has never reduced the price of their iPhones, iPads, or iPod touches so soon after a release. Apple waits for the next release to arrive. Not to mention you clearly mentioned an accessory. You still need an iPhone in order to use their watch.

Who said it was different. When you overcharge fordtuff, you have to drop prices. Samsung did. The Edge modes were priced to high. They lowered them to normal prices. 800 for an S6 Edge was ridiculous. But I paid it Same for the Edge Plus. But the difference here is, the Edge is worth $700 at the most. The Apple watch isn't worth 349 or more. No cellular? Less features that the original Gear?

Yes, very different. I think the Gear S had a $100 off promotion when both the Note 3 and Gear S were brand new. This is when both are as old as sin and they still can't take off $50 without any catches. At this stage in the game, it should be like $200 off without you having to buy an iphone. But of course Apple needs to squeeze every last drop out of you sheep before they can give you a good deal.

Smh. Glad Tmobiles offering EIP for the Apple Watch. I asked the Apple Store if they have payment plans for the Watch and they looked at me like I'm crazy.

$50 off is nice, but when I just dropped over a grand you're not making me jump for joy. But I work in retail and understand when we take a dollar off a product it entices the consumer to buy 2. We win.

For well-qualified customers with alota money available might be a good deal.
