Cyber Monday MacBook deals 2022: act fast for sales

Cyber Monday MacBook deals have come and some have already gone. Our favorite MacBook deal, and one of our favorite Cyber Monday deals overall, has been popping in and out of existence like Schrödinger's cat. If you want a MacBook Air (M1 2020) for $799 from Amazon, act fast because it may not stick around.  

These Cyber Monday deals are a great way to save money on big ticket items, and an Apple laptop is definitely a big ticket item. You can go straight to Apple and get a $150 Apple Gift Card when you buy a MacBook Air, or a $250 Apple Gift Card when you buy select MacBook Pro models. At least with Apple you know the deal will stick around all day. 

In addition to last year's M1 MacBook Air, you can also find a deal on the M2 Macbook Air for $1,049, as well as the M2 Apple MacBook Pro 13-inch for $1,149, and the MacBook Pro with either the M1 Max or M1 Pro chips starting at $1,599. 

Best Buy has already ended most of its Cyber Monday MacBook sales, and Amazon deals have been disappearing for hours at a time. If you find the MacBook you like, grab it while you can.

We don't see price cuts on Apple products very often, especially not these high-ticket favorites. These MacBook offers are some of the best Cyber Monday Apple deals going right now, but they may not be going long.

Today's best Cyber Monday MacBook deals

Cyber Monday MacBook deals 2022: Buying advice

Even though Black Friday deals often get the most attention, Cyber Monday computer deals are some of the best sales you're going to find for a few reasons. 

First, Cyber Monday is the largest eCommerce day of the year and traditionally has some of the best online deals of the holiday season – sometimes even better than Black Friday itself.

Second, since it is so heavily focused on eCommerce, the expectation is that the customer is more tech-savvy, so they might be more interested in computer deals than the general public.

Finally, after the Black Friday rush, retailers will take stock of their inventories and see what stock they need to more aggressively price in order to move. If a Black Friday MacBook deal didn't find as many takers as expected, the retailers will sometimes cut the price on those products even more to increase sales.

So we're definitely seeing Cyber Monday MacBook deals that are even better this year than 2021, which was a great year to get a MacBook.

Where are the best places to find MacBook Cyber Monday deals?

Amazon and Best Buy currently have the lowest prices on MacBook Air laptops. Amazon offers price matching against other retailers, a great help for Amazon Prime subscribers who want to take advantage of the speedy next-day delivery. 

Walmart offers good discounts matching Amazon on Apple computers, even sometimes offering a record low price before Amazon price matches.

If you are planning on buying accessories, the Apple Gift Card offer from Apple isn't bad, it just doesn't reduce the price of the MacBook.
