Featuring a brand-new design more akin to the modern looks of the 14-inch MacBook Pro, the new Air brings improved speed and efficiency thanks to the new Apple silicon and also offers a slightly larger display than the previous-gen model at 13.6 inches. The M2 chip inside allows for a performance bump of up to 40% and battery life as long as 18 hours, according to Apple. 

All of those improvements do come at a cost, though, as the MacBook Air M2’s price starts at $100 more than its predecessor. For that reason, it’s well worth trying to score an M2 MacBook Air deal where possible. While those will be rare this early in the device’s life cycle, we’ll be sure to add any deals to this list as they pop up in the coming months.

Amazon is offering its first discount on the MacBook Air M2 with the 256GB starlight model dropping to $1,099 there. That’s a $100 price drop and a great deal this early in the product’s life cycle. There’s no word on when this sale is due to end, so don’t hang around if you want one. Prime members can enjoy expedited shipping and you could get 3% cash back with the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature card.

B&H is also offering a $100 direct price drop on the MacBook Air M2 in starlight. matching Amazon’s first discount. It also offers a neat way to save on sales tax. Its own-brand B&H Payboo credit card gives you the tax back as cash back. On a purchase as large as a MacBook Air, that’s a decent chunk of change.

You can, of course, order the MacBook Air M2 directly at Apple. The company is renowned for not offering direct discounts, but its education store offers a $100 cheaper price and its back-to-school promotion will snag eligible buyers a $150 Apple gift card (plus 20% off AppleCare). If you’re not a student, you can still save by trading in your old MacBook (or any Apple device) for credit against your new one, or by using your Apple Card to spread the cost of your purchase while getting 3% cash back.

Best Buy isn’t discounting the MacBook Air M2 just yet but it is dishing out free access to Apple services with your purchase. You’ll get four months of access to Apple Music and Apple News Plus if you are a new or returning subscriber. That’s a total of $80 in free Apple services.
