The One Thing You Should Never Buy At An Apple Store, According To An Employee

November 17, 2016 by Lisa Fogarty

Apple stores are like Disneyland for tech lovers. Even if you stop in a store to pick up a new iPhone leather case, there’s a good chance you’ll walk out with a lightning dock, AirPods, and an even greater desire to own a Hermes Apple Watch.

Apple stores stand out from other retail outlets in a number of ways, from the modernist design to the open floor plans. But that uniqueness sometimes comes with a price, especially when you’re shopping for third party peripherals or accessories. And these non-Apple products are exactly what an Apple employee says you should never buy at an Apple store.

“Third party tech items like speakers could wind up costing you more money at an Apple store than if you order them from a site like Amazon,” says John, an Apple employee who asked not to be identified.

Last year, Apple began selling third-party items like battery packs in minimalist white packaging that mimics those used for Apple products. They may look similar and may very well sell at a reasonable, competitive price, but it’s always smart to compare prices for these items online so that you can be sure you’re getting the best deal. As for Apple brand products, rest assured they cost the same in Apple stores as they do online — so feel free to shop until you drop.
