Wiki Community Board This can and should be used by you to post updated deal information. Be sure to read this because it may contain answers to your questions!
Please be cautious about providing Rakuten (Buy.com) with your real credit card account number to dramatically reduce the risk of any later occurrences of credit card fraud as a result of the apparent Rakuten customer data security breach. Please consider other services (V.me, PayPal, Virtual Credit Card Number, MasterCard MasterPass, GoogleCheckout or Gift Card) instead. At least 212 SlickDeals Users have had their credit card account number compromised as a result of recent Rakuten (Buy.com) purchases. There are many more instances now appearing on other deal boards too regarding the stolen credit card account information and subsequent fraudulent transactions. (This is not meant to say anything negative about deals that may exist at Rakuten. It's only meant to draw attention to the integrity of their order processing department. Please support the original poster on the deal itself.)

By that logic nothing is a deal. Or do manufacturers premiere their products on sale? Usually price drops happen after time, no?
So if you save 20% off market value on the new one through promo codes, link rebates, gift card discounts you are still 20% ahead of the game (short term). The issue with this being 1 going on 2 generations behind soon is that its value is going to drop pretty quickly as it falls two generations back later this year.
Considering the price isn't that great and taking everything into account it isn't a great deal for most people. But that is my logic -- you might see it differently. I am personally looking for the slickest of the slick deals.
I was just saying that usually the deals with the best price are older. A manufacturer wouldnt' say: "Ok, I'm going to give you my newest and best thing. Oh and I never intend on turning a profit."
I just think that for an apple product it's not going to get much cheaper than this. You can get other brands at a lower price though. Sure. Or wait a year. I just don't know if it's worth it.
Ratuken with 20% points and some cash back have made a few of the latest Apple products a bit enticing during their site wide promos.
Kind of like the Macys deal last week for 25% off storewide. Normally you never get discount on Hugo, Ralph Lauren, etc. Add in some 10% off giftcards and an eebatess credit of 13% and it was pretty smoking. A bit of work but I have Lexus taste on a KIA budget so I have to work it for all it is worth.
Or earn more to pay full price. Prefer to be banking if I can earn more. Also Macy's sucks almost as bad as Walmart so any chance I can get to bone them the better.
Regarding reselling -- typically I don't resell my SD buys but on occasion it makes sense and help to control depreciation when you buy it super slick.
