SAVE UP TO $300: As of Sept. 22, both M2-powered Apple MacBooks Airs were on sale for record-low prices for paid My Best Buy members. You can grab the 15-inch model for $999 (normally $1,299) or the 13-inch model for $849 (normally $1,099). Both have 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.

Best Buy just hit both of Apple's M2-powered MacBook Airs with new record-low prices — but there's a catch.

As of Sept. 22, you can get the 15-inch M2 MacBook Air for $300 off and the 13-inch M2 MacBook Air for $250 off at Best Buy if you're a paid member of its My Best Buy program. You can sign up for the $49.99/year Plus tier or the $179.99 Total tier. This subscription auto-renews and you can cancel anytime, no strings attached. (Bonus: As a member, you'll also receive access to exclusive promotions during the retailer's upcoming Prime Day 2 counter-programming. It's extremely worth it, in our opinion.)

Price-wise, we can assure you that these deals are once-in-a-lifetime, or something like that. At Amazon, for instance, the 15-inch model has never sold for lower than $1,099, and the 13-inch version has never been cheaper than $899.

As for the specs of these groovy laptops, both the 13-inch and 15-inch models boast Apple's ultra-fast M2 processing chip (yay for zero lags!). Both also have up to 18 hours of battery life and that satisfying Liquid Retina display Apple is famous for. With the laptops' Spatial Audio systems, you don't even need to buy an extra speaker to fully immerse in your favorite tunes. A 1080p FaceTime HD camera also ensures you look fine as hell on video calls.

The best thing about these MacBooks is that, if you're already a big Apple user, you'll have no problem connecting your other Apple tech to the new purchase. This means instant photo transfers from phone to laptop and also seamless AirPods connectivity. Mark the start of the new season by treating yourself a lil' today!
