New Best Buy .edu deals crush Apple’s iPad student pricing

best-buy-ipad-college-edu-deal

Less than two weeks ago, Apple began offering its education customers modest iPad discounts, but now Best Buy has stepped up and basically made them irrelevant. The new Best Buy student deals that launched yesterday extend a $50 discount to all iPad Air and Retina iPad mini models, which is up to two and a half times as much as Apple’s edu pricing.

You’ll need to furnish a .edu email address to qualify for these Best Buy discounts, but once you receive your unique coupon code you can choose to make your purchase online or at any retail location. Of course, we recommend following us closely to stay up with all the best iPad deals, but if there aren’t any current deals and you’re in desperate need of an iPad, then Best Buy’s edu pricing is likely your best bet.

Other promotions include $150 off Macs and 30% off Incase MacBook accessories.

walmart-ipad-th-retina-free-gift-card
Walmart is bundling 4th generation full-size iPads with a free $100 gift card until June 15th and since Walmart sells everything from groceries to furniture, the gift card is as good as cash for most people.

The gift card can only be used towards a future purchase and the ad warns that quantities are limited. Here’s the product listing for reference, but you’ll have to trek out to a Walmart store to make your purchase.

Beginning this Sunday, June 8th, Target stores are reportedly planning one of the best iPad deals we’ve seen since Black Friday. According to an early ad scan obtained by the Times Union blog, Target will offer the first generation iPad mini for just $199. To put this deal in perspective you must consider that just yesterday Apple dropped its refurbished price for the same model down to $219 and we considered that a slam dunk deal.

Originally released in fall of 2012, the iPad mini is still apart of Apple’s current iPad lineup and will receive iOS 8 later this year. It features a 7.9-inch LED-backlist display, dual-core A5 chip, and up to 10-hours of battery life.

The ad warns that only limited quantities are available so we would highly recommend getting to your local Target store before it opens.

Get ready for your new iPad mini by saving 70% on a ZAGG backlit keyboard case.

Take $150 off early 2014 MacBook Airs (requires .edu email), deals from $750 (up to 17% off)

macbook-air-2014One of the best ways to get a discount on brand new Macs has typically been Apple’s education pricing, but that’s not true this release cycle. Best Buy has been offering customers with .edu email addresses a $150 savings on nearly all MacBooks but until now the brand new April 2014 MacBook Airs were excluded.

Best Buy has lifted the ban on these models so you can use your unique education discount on any of the new MacBook Airs, which will net you the entry-level 11-inch model for just $749.99 with free shipping (17% off). As a pricing comparison, Apple only offers its education customers a $50 discount on this same model. This is currently the best pricing you’ll find on a new condition MacBook Air from the past two years since the EOL deal is now sold out.

To cash in on this deal you must register your .edu email address here, wait to receive a confirmation email from Best Buy, and then apply the promo code from the email during checkout.
