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 [bestbuy.com] for $853.99 + tax ($953.99-$100) or the last gen 11" Macbook Air [bestbuy.com] 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!

Why do you want to do that? At least you can customize on apple.com

You'll still have to pay for tax. How are you saving $50 off of BB's price?

Think he meant Apple matched the $100 off coupon (well $50 worth). So he actually bought from Apple
