I'm thinking about it, but I am uniformed about the current ipads.

 

Airpods are $139.99

Don't forget that it comes with 1 year of Apple TV+ as well!

 

I'm actually almost thinking about doing this because my wife recently confiscated my older iPad for some of her Zoom calls...

I ordered one for my wife and her business yesterday, along with the new Logitech keyboard case with trackpad. Seems like a great price, even with the A10 processor and non-laminated screen. I linked the keyboard case below, which is available at Apple but ‘Coming Soon’ at Best Buy.

If you're not that worried about GBs, you can get the 32GB model for $250. Definitely the best price for an introductory iPad.

I bought one at the same price during Black Friday 2018. I mostly use mine just to surf the web & watch video and I’m super happy with it.

Still keeps a good charge and I use mine for hours daily.

Doesn't this iPad use the new Apple Pencil, which attaches magnetically?  Maybe the spot to hold the Pencil on the case is for the Gen1 Pencil?

The official keyboard is on sale at bestbuy $99

I grabbed the 32gb one, after watching videos of people using it the a10 basically runs everything they throw at it.

One word of warning , Apple Products no longer give you bestbuy points. Bought a 2020 MacBook Air and saw the disclaimer.

Is this the version that doesn’t have the laminated screen?

Really not sure. My wife won’t use the pencil at all, but she’s used to a trackpad (Surface Pro 3) which is what made this case appealing.

Yep, the one with the nice screen and faster processor is the iPad Air 2019 and above (pro). They say you can tell the screen feels "cheaper" and whatnot, but I was just looking to replace a 5+ year old iPad Air with a dying battery for the kids and decided to bite at the $250 price point (from amazon).

Just be warned that if the product goes out of stock they will refuse the match. Even if it was in stock when you call, then you're on hold for an hour, if it's out of stock when they answer they won't help. That was my Labo price match experience a few weeks ago.

Also if you can, use chat. And if chat is down, wait until the option is back on the web. It's the only civilized way to get anything done while you wait.

Target's hold music loop recording is about 20 minutes and I went though that about 4 times to get my Kindle price match. The hold loop for Home Depot is only 10 minutes long and over 3 hours total this week, that's burned into my brain forever.

Got the price match just a little bit ago with no issues.  Saved another $54 bucks off what I paid.

For anyone ordering iPad accessories from Apple, I purchased the keyboard case on Tuesday and it’s out for delivery today. Very quick shipping!

Android yes because there are 9000 manufacturers pumping out different models.

Apple is once a year, sometimes longer. There's really only a few times a year that Apple products go on "sale" and there's no way Apple would put that big of a discount on an iPad.. half off? not going to happen.

This ipad uses the gen 1 pencil only. Not the 2nd gen.

Not sure if this would characterize specifically as a deal, but the service GameClub, which is similar to Apple Arcade in that it's a monthly ($5)/yearly ($50) subscription of premium/no-DLC games, does free upgrades if you bought the original games included in its service. As far as I know, none of the games in the service are brand new titles, but many are well-respected games from the beginnings of the app store, 2008-2012 or so. The original versions of many of these games hadn't been updated for 64 bit or current screen sizes.

 

About half of the games I had previously purchased just showed up as updates/redownloads for me. Some of the games, though, you have to reach out to their customer support either via the website or via a link within the game itself. Once you've downloaded the new version of the game, they can unlock it for you. The service has a pretty decent number/variety of games available, but I owned so many of them outright that it's not the right subscription for me, so it was very nice that they unlocked the copies of the games I owned already.

That gameclub thing sounds actually pretty interesting.  I was HUGE into ios games for many of those years.  I'll check it out later.

 

I bought the 32gb ipad.  Came to $272.49 with tax and all.  Not bad.  I've owned plenty of iphones and my kids have had a couple gens of ipod touch.  But this will be my first ipad.  If it ends up being well used, I'll keep an eye out come black friday for a second.  My kids are all older now with gaming pcs, so this is for my wife and I.  I doubt they'll give it much notice.
