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.
Check out the full list of our iPad deals we found today.
