New MacBook deals are arriving by the day. Now that Apple has unveiled its new M2-based machines, retailers are offering bigger discounts on Apple’s previous-gen MacBooks. Plus, with back to school sales starting early, MacBook deals are on the rise.
That said, if you spot a deal you like — our advice is to jump on it immediately because stock tends to run out fast. If you don’t see the listed sale price, try checking different color models for hidden deals. (For more deals, make sure to follow our best Apple deals guide).

Prime Day and MacBook deals
It’s official: Prime Day 2022 will begin on July 12. The 48-hour sale will usher in a range of sales on everything from Echo speakers to MacBook Pros. This year, Apple will have a new MacBook Pro and (possibly) a new MacBook Air available during Prime Day. We expect to see modest discounts on both new laptops and more generous price cuts on Apple’s previous-gen MacBook Pro and MacBook Air. Keep it locked to Tom’s Guide for the best MacBook deals deals during Prime Day.

How to find the best MacBook deals
Amazon and Best Buy tend to offer the best MacBook deals. The MacBook Air M1 and the MacBook Pro M1 tend to see from $50 to $250 off discounts. However, we’ve noticed that Amazon offers slightly better MacBook sales that its competitors. For instance, the M1 MacBook Air has dropped to $799 a few times at Amazon.
If you’re looking for MacBook Pro deals — you’ll want to look at Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo. The 14-inch MacBook Pro hit $1,749 ($250 off) in early February. The 16-inch model has also seen $250 off discounts at Amazon. These short-lived deals are the best prices we’ve seen for these MacBooks to date.
It’s also worth noting that sometimes pricing varies based on what color MacBook you choose. So when shopping, we recommend clicking on different colors to see if there are hidden discounts.
