We rarely see big discounts on new Apple devices but there are some huge savings up for grabs on the latest 13-inch and 15-inch MacBook Air M3 at Best Buy – as long as you have an existing MacBook you're willing to trade in.

If you do, then you can head over to Best Buy to get the MacBook Air M3 from just $399. That's the minimum you can pay as the discount depends on the specification you're looking to buy and the MacBook you'd like to trade in. Ballpark figures given by Best Buy include up to $1,200 off with a MacBook Pro, up to $900 with a MacBook Air M2, and up to $350 off with any other MacBook such as the old Intel models.

As a bonus, My Best Buy Plus and My Best Buy Total members get an extra $50 discount on all new MacBook Air M3 models. You can sign up for My Best Buy now to take advantage of that discount.

All things combined, that means the base 13-inch MacBook Air M3 with 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD storage starts at $1,049. Add a $475 trade-in rebate for the MacBook Air M1 and you could walk away with a new device for $574.

So, if you've got an eye on upgrading, we recommend making use of this trade-in rebate as it'll be one of the best MacBook deals for some time.
