Best Buy is officially on fire with deals for education customers. Just after recently launching the best MacBook Air sale we’ve ever seen, Best Buy is back with an incredible Retina iPad mini promotion.
Each WiFi model is discounted at least $50 and anyone with access to a .edu email address can save an additional $50, which brings the 16GB WiFi configuration down to $299.99. Best Buy will even throw in a free case (automatically added at checkout). That’s 25% below list and the same price Apple charges for the first generation iPad mini (without a Retina display). Simply head to this student promo page and submit a .edu email address to have a unique coupon code emailed to you. We do not know for sure, but we’re assuming this discount is part of the 3-day sale.
It features a 7.9″ 2048×1536 resolution display, A7 chip with M7 motion coprocessor, and 802.11n WiFi with MIMO technology.
