One of the best deals is probably picking up the latest edition 13" Base Macbook Air for $999 + tax ($1099-$100 coupon), which is one of the best prices I have seen on the latest edition MBA from a major retailer. You may even be able to get Best Buy to "price match" Apple's student discount pricing (ie. $1049 on 13" MBA) and also receive the $100 discount on top of that. YMMV since many managers will not stack both, but if you get lucky this would bring your final price down to $949 + tax on a new 13" MBA.
Another option who do not want/need latest is purchasing last gen 13" Macbook Air for $853.99 + tax ($953.99-$100) or the last gen 11" Macbook Air for $805.99 ($905.99-$100). All that said, I highly recommend picking up current generation as there is a significant gain in battery life from last generation and modest gains in GPU performance from last generation to current.
Note that every year Apple usually has a Back to School savings event (June/July timeframe) which may turn out to be a better deal for students if you can wait. For example, last year you received Apple student pricing (currently $1049 for 13" Base Macbook Air) and a free $100 iTunes Giftcard. We may even get lucky and get Best Buy to offer their $100 instant savings + $100 iTunes Giftcard once the Apple Back to School promotion launches.
Anyhow, for those of you who cannot wait, and interested in purchasing a new Macbook Air, this appears to be a decent savings for a product which was just refreshed w/ Haswell, Wireless 802.11ac, faster storage and great battery life! Hope this helps someone out!
