PSA: original iPad Air Smart Covers will fit iPad Air 2, save up to 50% now

ipad-air-2-smart-coverNews of updated Apple iPad Air Smart Covers and Cases most certainly went unnoticed by many due to the excitement of a 5K iMac and gold iPads. Redesigned Smart Cases shouldn’t be a suprise since iPad Air 2 is 18% thinner, but it was baffling that Smart Covers were also updated since the iPad Air footprint remained untouched.

Well, original iPad owners can rest easy (and save $39), because earlier this evening the folks at iFixit were able to verify that the original iPad Air Smart Cover will indeed work with iPad Air 2.

This is also great news to anyone getting their first iPad Air, because the original Smart Cover can be had at extremely discounted rates since it has been discontinued by Apple. Here are the best places to score a legit one for as much as 50% off: Read more

Target announces free shipping for all items through the holiday shopping season

TargetStoreExterior2013

Here comes the holiday push. Target has just announced that all online orders placed from now until December 20th will qualify for free shipping.

Typically only orders exceeding $50 or placed with a REDcard would evade shipping costs. The only other option was to choose free in-store pickup. Again, there is no order minimum on this promotion so everything from cheap DVDs to pricey HDTVs are fair game.

We really hope that this forces the hand of other retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, and Staples to put their free shipping requirements on hold this holiday season.

iPhone 5 factory unlocked manufacturer refurbished w/ 1-yr Apple warranty

apple-refurb-ebay-store-iphone-deal

Update (10/21 11:30am): Prices are fluctuating. Check eBay for latest rates.

Update (10/20 1:15pm): Prices across the board have dropped: 16GB $329.99, 32GB $359.99, 64GB $389.99

Update (10/20 7:45am): coupon code has expired, but $399 for an unlocked iPhone 5 is still a great price.

Apple’s “unofficial” eBay Store is still going strong and the release of iPhone 6 has sparked new price drops on previous generation iPhones.

A factory unlocked manufacturer refurbished iPhone 5 now starts at just $399 and includes a full one year Apple warranty, is repackaged with manual and charger, and has been returned to like-new condition. Furthermore, the “final quality inspection [is performed] by Apple.” Enter redemption code CELL20SAVE during checkout and you’ll save an additional $20 on each model. That drops the price of a 16GB model down to $379 shipped.

As a pricing comparison, Apple is currently charging $450 for an unlocked iPhone 5c (essentially the same phone) with half as much storage. After surveying completed listings on eBay, most pre-owned iPhone 5 units sell for anywhere between $300-$400, but keep in mind those aren’t refurbished by Apple and generally do not include a warranty or any accessories.

Today’s coupon code also drops the 32GB iPhone 5 to $389 and the 64GB iPhone 5 to $399. All of these variations are Apple refurbished, include a one year warranty, and are eligible to be shipped to dozens of different countries: Read more
