You don’t have to wait for Amazon Prime Day to save money on Apple AirPods, Apple Watch, Apple AirTags and more.

Traditionally, Amazon Prime Day was the perfect time to pick up deals on Apple Laptops, Apple Wireless Headphones and Apple Watch smartwatches. And while we expect that to be true this year as well, there’s no reason to wait for the annual summer sale.

In our experience, Amazon is still a good place to look for Apple deals. Here’s a look at some of the biggest Apple discounts we’ve found right now through the retail giant. (And, no, before you ask, the dates for Amazon Prime Day 2022 have not been announced. So cool your jets – and/or just start shopping now.)


The best offers of this article:

Apple Watch SE (40mm), $249 (usually $279)

Apple AirPods Pro, $197 (usually $249)
