So far we’ve found some great Apple deals on Amazon – here’s what we’ve dug up.
Apple AirTag 4-pack
Buy here for $74 (originally $99).
This year’s hottest travel accessory is without a doubt Apple’s AirTags. These coin-sized buttons help you track and find your most important items. As missing and late checked bags become an integral part of the travel experience during the pandemic era, putting an AirTag in your checked bag is more important than ever.
You might even want to add one to your rollaboard, backpack, and purse since you never know when you’ll be checking these items at the gate. As we’ve seen during this year’s travel crises, being able to get your item’s current location without relying on an airline’s information is priceless. Here’s how you may be able to make additional savings if you have an American Express credit card.

2022 MacBook Air
Buy here for $1,049 (originally $1,199).
Apple’s new MacBook Air is a traveler’s dream machine. The redesigned, thin and light design makes this computer super easy to carry, and the laptop has a lot going for it. The new M2 chip lets you multitask with ease while still delivering impressive all-day battery life. I used the computer for 19 straight hours on the world’s longest flight and landed with about 86% charge remaining. Other improvements include a full-size keyboard, an upgraded 13.6-inch display, and a 1080p FaceTime HD camera.

The charging case has also been updated with better Find My support and a speaker, making it easier to find them in your bag. Other upgrades include a more customizable fit and a battery boost. Plus, they’re sold at the lowest price on Amazon for the last 30 days, so grab them while they’re in stock.

Although these long-stemmed AirPods don’t offer noise-cancelling, they’re sure to be a hit thanks to the 50% discount. They offer a few new features over the original AirPods, including improved audio and longer battery life. Handy sensors allow you to pause and resume music by removing an earbud, while the “Hey Siri” feature now activates hands-free voice control. These might be entry-level AirPods, but they’re a great way to get into the AirPods ecosystem at an affordable price.
