expiredApple 32GB iPad mini 2 w/Retina display: $299 shipped ($50 off)

Staples offers the iPad mini 2 32GB with Retina Display (Model ME280LL/A) for $299 shipped. That’s $50 off retail price and the lowest price we’ve seen on this particular model.

It features a 7.9-inch Retina Display, Mimo Wifi, front and back iSight cameras and more. It is like getting a 32GB model for the price of the 16GB – Staples had the 16GB model on sale for $199 last week.

expirediPad Mini in White or Space Gray: $199 shipped or pickup at Walmart ($50 off)


Today only, Walmart offers Apple’s iPad Mini (non-Retina) in new condition either Space Gray or White for $199 shipped or ship to store. That’s $50 off Apple’s current price (though Walmart mistakenly says $100 off last year’s price) and tied with the lowest price we’ve ever seen. A nice pickup for the same price as the iPod touch. Features:

  • 7.9-inch LED-backlit display
  • A5 chip
  • 5MP iSight camera with 1080p HD video recording
  • FaceTime camera
  • Up to 10 hours of battery life *
  • Built-in Wi-Fi (802.11a/b/g/n)

These often sell out pretty quick so you might want to jump in early.

Verizon FIOS

Today Verizon announced that their FiOS customers will receive upload speeds that match their current download speeds. This upgrade is for everyone, both existing customers and new140720_SpeedsUpDown285 subscribers.

Now you might be familiar with Verizon’s throttling of Netflix or its mediocrity when streaming Youtube (the number 1 and 2 reasons for getting high speed internet) and those things haven’t changed nor has their anti net-neutrality stance.

But frankly, you don’t have much of a choice out there. Comcast is worse and as the FCC deregulates, it doesn’t look good unless Google Fiber is coming to your town.

Before the upgrade, the tiers were 50/25, 75/35, 150/65, 300/65, and 500/100, but now in all cases, the second # (the upload speed) will increase to match the download speed.

Our favorite packages, the $50 for 50/50 Mb FiOS + HBO, local channels and some noteworthy HD channels including ESPN also got the upgrade making the deal even sweeter.

Best Buy offers the Apple iPod touch 8GB MP3 Player in White, model no. MD057LL/A, or Black, model no. MC540LL/A, together with a $30 Best Buy Gift Card, for $189.99 with free shipping. (Be sure to select the iPod of your choice and the gift card prior to adding to cart.) Assuming you’ll use the gift card, that’s the lowest total price we could find for the iPod alone by $30, although we saw it bundled with a $50 gift card for $15 more last month (since expired). Sales tax is added where applicable. It features a high-definition Retina Display, 3-axis gyro, iOS 5, front- and rear-facing cameras (the latter capable of HD recording), FaceTime, Game Center, and more. The headphones feature a frequency response of 80Hz to 18kHz, foam ear cushion, and more.
