With less than a week to go before Christmas, Best Buy
is pulling out all the stops to get shoppers into their stores. Best Buy has a couple of sweet deals that will be especially appealing if you’re still shopping for the perfect gift for the Apple fan on your holiday shopping list.
was the first retailers to offer customers iPad + MiFi
bundles starting at $629.99. Today, 9to5 Mac
is reporting that Best Buy is now offering Wi-Fi enabled iPads with free MiFi Mobile Hotspots. A two-year plan with Verizon, AT&T or Sprint is required in order take advantage of this deal. This offer will go on through the end of the year and expire on January 2. Some people may not want to get locked into a contract for the next two years, but this deal is $129.99 less than the Verizon offer.
Best Buy also has a pretty sweet deal if you’re looking for an iTunes gift card this holiday season. Currently, you can get a $50 iTunes gift card
for $40 if you order it online. It should arrive in time for Christmas, but an in-store pickup might be a safer bet if you don’t want to take any chances with it arriving on time. Personally, I can never have enough credit at the iTunes store.
If you’ve ever had to return an item and been outraged at Best Buy’s restocking fees, then you’ll be happy to learn that they are history, starting immediately. According to Carolyn Aberman at the Best Buy Blog
, “Best Buy continually listens to our customers, and they told us they want to give confidently this holiday season and every other day of the year — and with that comes easier returns. Effective Saturday, December 18, Best Buy is improving its return policy by removing restocking fees for all products except special orders.”
Ordinarily, I wouldn’t plug one store quite this much in one article, but with Christmas only a few days away, I thought some people might still have some holiday shopping to do. Happy Shopping and Merry Returns.
