Speck CandyShell Grip iPad mini Case (multiple colors) $10 shipped (orig. $45)

Tanga offers the Speck CandyShell Grip iPad mini Case in multiple colors for $9.99 shipped. This is a savings of $35 off the original price and the lowest that we can currently find it. This case is rated 4.8/5 stars by 74 Amazon customersNote: this case is designed for the 1st generation iPad mini, it will fit the 2nd and 3rd generation Retina models but will cover one of the microphones.

The Speck CandyShell Grip iPad mini Case features a hard shell design with raised rubber grips and button covers plus a dual-layer design. Our own Jeremy Horwitz found it to be a solid option for protecting the iPad mini:

Overall, CandyShell and CandyShell Grip for the iPad mini are equally worthy of our high recommendation and A- rating. While there are some tweaks that would make them even better, they’re amongst the very best playthrough-style cases on the market today, and very difficult to fault on quality or overall design.

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 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.
