About to order an iMac. Just wanted to confirm that I can use the gift card to purchase Apple care +.

I first bought the Series 3. It was good but next to the Series 5 looks really old fashioned and much smaller. BTW it was Nike. I think that version is a better value. You get a few more watch faces.
Wow this is a great deal. Was this online or in store?

Can confirm, I used my $35 from an AppleTV purchase to offset cost of Applecare+ for my Airpods Pro. I did this in store but no reason it shouldn't work online .

How did you get an AW Series 5 for $350 if they are selling the S4 brand new for $470 and the open box S4 for $400? Also BB repackages everything as if it wasn't worn, they have a really good refurb process.

Is it really worth this deal to get an Ipad pro 11?

The problem with this deal is that you have to pay full price and then you get your discount. So getting $140 off a Future Purchase. If you want just a straight discount, wait for another 10% staples coupon. You will almost save as much money if you live in a province with high sales tax

Let's say you live in Ontario and wanted a iPad Pro11" 256GB
Apple store: $1199 + HST = $1355. You get $140 off on a future purchase. So you end up paying $1214 over two purchases
Staples: $1199 - 10% + HST = $1219 over 1 purchase

I'd rather go with Staples
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

Might have been mentioned but airmilesshops has 20x airmiles site wide. If my math is correct that would be another $100 or so in airmiles back on the purchase of an iPad pro for example.

Edit: also I think any purchase over$100 counts towards shop the block as well.

I ordered an Ipad Pro and I got my gift card as soon as it was shipped however I see apple has charged my credit card for the exact value of the gift card at first I thought maybe this is a hold until you get past the return period however this morning I see the charge went through which means apple would have to refund me the difference.

Is this how they've always operated with their CC's or should I call apple or my credit card company about this?

I ordered a pro as well. It looks like they discounted $140 from the selling price and then turned around and did second charge for the $140 to balance it out. Very weird but the math checks out I think. Check your receipt and corresponding charges.

I suspect they did this so you didn't have to pay tax on the gift card. In actuality you save a couple extra bucks I think since you're only paying tax on the discounted iPad amount

Online. Got it the night before Black Friday. I, too, thought it was a mistake. Maybe it was. Am loving the always on feature.
