Get an iPad mini for $200 shipped at Best Buy (33% savings)

ipad-mini-first-gen
Not to be outdone by Target’s massive iPad sale two weeks ago, Best Buy is also dropping $100 off the first generation iPad mini. Technically, Target’s sale was $0.99 less, but that’s because for some odd reason the national retailer adds $0.99 to the MSRP of many products.

Available in silver and space gray, the iPad mini will only set you back $199.99 this week at Best Buy. That’s a savings of more than 33% and a match for the best price we’ve ever seen. Of course, it isn’t Apple’s latest tablet and there are likely to be updated models around the corner, but for less than $200 it’s perfect for casual users. The first generation iPad mini will be supported by iOS 8 and features a 7.9-inch LED-backlit display, 10-hour battery life, and dual-core A5 chip.

Protect your new iPad with this heavily discounted waterproof LifeProof case. Also, the iPad mini with Retina display remains on sale for $350 or $300 with an .edu email address.

ipad-mini-retina-displayBest Buy is knocking $50 off iPad mini with Retina display WiFi models today with an extra $50 off for those with access to a .edu email address. Keep in mind we currently have the 16GB WiFi model in space gray or silver for $320 (or $80 off), which is a better deal for those without a .edu address.

If you do have a .edu or are looking for a model with more storage, Best Buy has the 32GB and 64GB iPad mini with Retina Display models available starting at $449.99 shipped ($400 w/ .edu). Note: Tax varies depending on the state.

Apple’s pint size tablet features a 7.9″ 2048×1536 resolution display, A7 chip with M7 motion coprocessor, and 802.11n WiFi with MIMO technology. We also have some great prices on highly rated iPad mini cases from LifeProof today starting at $25 (up to $35 off).

If it is the iPad Air that has caught your attention, Staples is offering up to $130 off various models right now.

Refurbished 2014 MacBook Air models now available in Apple Online Store

Macbook Air-MC969LL:A-sale-01

Apple has recently added the 2014 MacBook Air to the refurbished section of the Apple Online Store. Currently, the 1.4 GHz Intel Core i5 11-inch MacBook Air is available in two configurations priced at $769 and $929, with 128 GB and 256 GB SSD’s respectively. 13-inch Air’s have also been in the store at various times in the last couple of days, so should return once Apple replenishes their refurbished inventory. These reduced prices are equivalent to around 15% savings in comparison new models from Apple’s site. The products were added two days ago, and have been lapsing in and out of stock constantly, so — like much of Apple’s refurbished offerings — quantities are obviously limited.

Walmart temporarily cuts 16 GB iPhone 5c price to $.97, iPhone 5s now $79

gold-iphone-5S

Walmart has cut the prices of both of the current iPhone models substantially in what looks like some early prep for the iPhone 6, which is expected next month. As noted by Engadget, you’ll be able to get the 16 GB model of the iPhone 5c for only $.97. No, that’s not a typo. The phone is now selling for ninety-seven cent.

The 16 GB iPhone 5s also got yet another price cut, this time down from $99 to $79. Both of these prices are only temporary and will climb back to their usual points in 90 days—unless of course a newer model comes along and knocks the retail price of these handsets down a few bucks.

Apple iPad mini for $199 (33% off) goes live online and at Target stores

9to5-image 2014-08-17 at 7.28.11 AM

Update (8/18 11:45am): Only available for store pickup.

Update (8/17 9:20 AM): Staples is offering all WiFi-enabled iPad Airs (Space Gray or Silver) for $130 off.

Confirming our report from earlier this month, Target has revived its $199 iPad mini sale this morning. At the time of posting it’s available both online at Target.com and at Target retail locations.

We’ve been told by a Target rep that quantities are limited and as such we highly recommend picking one up today. This deal is $100 better than retail and $20 less than Apple charges for a refurbished model. The first generation iPad mini features a 7.9-inch LED-backlit display, 10-hour battery life, and dual-core A5 chip.

There’s also a $50 discount on the iPad Air, but that isn’t nearly as noteworthy since several retailers were offering it for $100 off last week.

REDcard holders can save additional 5%. Limit 2 iPads per customer, while supplies last.

Note: if size matters to you, you can get a 9.7-inch 32GB iPad 2 for $220 on Ebay. Though it is refurbished, you’ll likely be spared tax at time of purchase.

Even bigger? Grab a 32GB iPad Air for $489.99 shipped at Ebay. That’s $110 off of retail and the lowest we’ve ever seen it.

Update (8/11 11:10am): Blutek via eBay Daily Deals:

Staples and Best Buy have both kicked off significant iPad sales. First, Staples is taking $100 off all iPad Air WiFi models when you enter coupon code 79449 at checkout. That means the entry-level 16GB model is only $399, which is $20 less then Apple charges for it in refurbished condition. At the time of posting, all storage capacities except for the 128GB model are available in both Space Gray and Silver.

Next, Best Buy is knocking $50 off iPad mini with retina display. Both WiFi and cellular (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint) models are included in this sale. That drops the 16GB WiFi model down to $349.99. Keep in mind that you can save an additional $50 on these sale prices if you have access to a .edu email address.

If you’re not interested in paying up for Apple’s latest and greatest iPads, then you may want to wait for Target’s $199 iPad mini sale that we have a feeling may kick off next week.
