Just in time for Mother’s Day, T-Mobile is discounting its Apple iPad offerings by $100 when you elect to finance through its Equipment Installment Plan (EIP) program. The big news here is that every iPad model w/ LTE service that T-Mobile offers is eligible, including iPad Air 2, iPad mini 3 and iPad mini with Retina display. While we frequently see iPad deals of varying degrees, the wide range of discounts on all capacities makes this deal particularly notable. T-Mobile is even throwing in free overnight shipping today.

Here’s how it works: purchase any iPad with LTE at T-Mobile and use the EIP, T-Mobile will then apply a $5.50 credit to your monthly bill for two years (that’s more than $100, but we’ll take it!) as long as you maintain a 1GB or higher Simple Choice Mobile internet or Match Your Data plan. This works out to an effective discount of $132. If you cancel your plan at any time, the remaining balance on the product is due, other fees may apply (full terms and conditions below).

Here are the models that T-Mobile currently offers. Note: you must select color and capacity on the product page.

From 9to5Google:

If you’re looking to give Google’s ChromeOS a try, the 11.6″ HP LTE-equiped Chromebook may be your best option right now. The non-LTE version of the Chromebook usually sells for $279, but the LTE model is actually available now for only $249. The connectivity isn’t the only difference between the two, either. The LTE model comes with 16 GB of flash storage while the more expensive, less-capable version uses a standard hard drive of the same size.

Both come with 2 GB of RAM, a 1.7 GHz Samsung Exynos processor, built-in webcam, support for 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, and weigh only 2.3 pounds. Both models are also available in a range of colors. Obviously, the connectivity differs between the two, as the LTE model comes with support for Verizon’s 4G LTE network.
