Deal: get the Apple iPhone 6s and 6S Plus at $100 off, the iPad Air 2 at $125 off from Best Buy

Yesterday, we told you that Best Buy is running a special holiday promotion for the Apple Watch, offering every version of the wearable at $100 off the usual price. Today, the retailer has upped the ante by announcing a few more deals on Apple devices such as the iPhone 6s and the iPad Air 2.

Starting today, December 10th, Best Buy will drop $100 off the current price of every iPhone 6S and iPhone 6 model, inluding the oversized Plus versions. Unfortunately, however, the deal only applies if you're willing to sign a two-year carrier agreement with either Verizon or Sprint. In other words, the Apple iPhone 6S is offered at $99 on contract, while the iPhone 6S Plus is available at $199. If you're thinking about taking advantage of this offer, make sure to read our Apple iPhone 6S review and our iPhone 6S Plus review before deciding which is the better iPhone for your needs.

If you're on the market for an iPad, Best Buy is also running a similar promotion on most Apple tablets. The iPad Air 2 is offered at a $125 discount while the iPad Air and the iPad Mini 4 are both offered at $100 off their original prices. With the discounts applied, the entry-level iPad Air 2, iPad Air, and iPad Mini 4 models are priced at $374, $299, and $299, respectively.

What do you guys think of Best Buy's holiday promotion on Apple devices? Will you be getting a discounted iOS device from the retailer during this holiday shopping season?

Not the iPad Air 2. Best mobile tablet out.

I agree. The Air 2 is pretty much the best of the best.

Is the Surface Pro considered a tablet? I'd take that over Apple or Android any day. Windows 10 is just so good on it.

Same. But notice, I said mobile tablet. Surface Pro does it all.

"Not the iPad Air 2. Best mobile tablet out." You misspelled Pixel C. Pixel C has: - Larger display. - Sharper display. - Dual front facing speakers. - 32GB base option. - Better battery life. - USB-C. - Insanely powerful Nvidia GPU. - 3 GB RAM. - Kick ass keyboard accessory.

And a fraction of the tablet optimized app.

LOL yes, all those tablet optimized apps on the iPad. Please list these tablet optimized apps that only exist on iPads. iFans are hilarious, never grew out of 2010.

Bought a Cube i7 stylus from China for $350 and have been reaching for that instead of the ipad lately. Pretty sweet deal for Core M and 4gb of ram. It's a good replacement.

Agree. Been reading good review on it, but still decided on a dell 7140 due to a good balance of branding and price.

This almost makes me want to grab a Mini. But then I remember that it's merely 16gb with no expandable storage. FTS.

OneDrive, Google Drive, iCloud Drive, Mega, Dropbox?

Not everyone trusts the cloud or wants to use it. Also it is not equal to expandable storage.

Which Samsung devices like the Note 5 and the S6 don't have btw.

At least you can attach one of these to them and use like an external storage...on which you can put documents, install apps and every in between:

Darn Samsung, removing expandable storage options from their tablets like the Galaxy Tab S2. Oh wait...

Yea no thanks too all the problems SD cards have had. My friends old S4 formatted it clean for no reason whatsoever. She lost hundreds of baby photos from birth all the way up to 1 year old. That sucks.... Thats just one of the many unfortunate events I've read online.

You can't store 2gb games on cloud.

The iPad Mini 2 also only has 1 GB RAM, and a relatively weak CPU. 1 GB RAM is useless for web browsing since more than a couple tabs open will overload it, and every time you switch tabs the page refreshes.

Not sure if Surface runs a mobile os? I hate using pc's unless I have to. Boot time and virus protection. Love using my iPad Air 2. I have a Nexus 7 but lollipop destroy it. This sounds like a decent deal unless it's 16 gig only.
