Black Friday and Cyber Monday may be over bu that doesn't mean the deals are.

Though open-box models aren't sealed, they're oftentimes just as unused as any brand new product out there.

Apple Watch Series 6

From $329

Apple Watch Series 6 models are available for some of their best prices ever right now. The lowest price is on the red 40mm version which is $70 off with 44mm and cellular models seeing discounts of up to $91.

Apart from paying full price, the main thing you miss out on by choosing an open-box model is the full Apple warranty. That being said, all of the devices in this sale have between 60 and 120 days of warranty attached, often from Apple itself. We've seen these sales sell out quickly in the past, and some models are already gone, so if you're interested you'll want to pick one up sooner than later.

Woot's sale has several different models of MacBook computers in stock currently, all of which are recent models from 2019 or 2020. The most affordable open-box model on sale today is the early 2020 MacBook Air on sale from $869.99 (opens in new tab). It features a 13-inch Retina display, a 10th-gen Intel Core i5 quad-core processor, 8GB RAM, and a 256GB SSD.

If you have more in your budget to spend on a computer today, the most recent 16-inch MacBook Pro with 1TB SSD (opens in new tab) is now on sale from $2,269.99 at Woot. That's quite a discount from its $2,799 retail price and even beats its current Amazon sale price (opens in new tab) by almost $250.

Meanwhile, various configurations of the Apple iPad are on sale from $299.99 (opens in new tab) currently, including 2018, 2019, and the latest 2020 versions (opens in new tab) of the tablet as well as iPad Pro and iPad Air models. The discounted iPad mini has already sold out.

Shipping at Woot is generally $6 per order, though you can score free shipping by logging in with an Amazon Prime account before checking out. If you're not a Prime member already, consider starting a free 30-day trial (opens in new tab) to score free shipping at Woot and Amazon. You'll also gain access to all of Prime's usual perks such as the Prime Video streaming service, exclusive members-only discounts (opens in new tab), and much more.
