If you’re in the market for a new iPad, the next few days might offer a good opportunity to pick one up. Several end-of-the-year sales have cropped up online, giving some pretty impressive discounts on Apple’s entry-level tablets.
Target, for example, has priced the 9.7-inch iPad at $249.99 for the 32-gigabyte configuration, down from $329.99. That’s probably the cheapest that you’ll find Apple’s early 2017 tablet, as it’s about $30 cheaper than a similar year’s end promotion that Best Buy is running.
The lowest that the device is going for on Amazon appears to be $265.27, but your mileage may vary when you check the site yourself.
Currently, there are Space Gray models of the 32GB iPad in stock and ready to ship. On the other hand, Gold models qualify for free in-store pickup — depending on your location and the stock levels of stores around you. As of the writing of this article, there aren’t any 32GB models in Silver available from the retailer.
Unfortunately, if you opt for the 128GB iPad, there won’t be any discount. According to Target’s website, the higher-capacity model still retails for $429.99.
If the smaller iPad mini series is more your speed, Target is also running a promotion on the iPad mini 4 from 2015. The 128GB Wi Fi-only model is currently retailing for $299.99 — $100 off the usual price of $399.99. There are only Space Gray iPad mini 4 devices in stock, however.
For comparison’s sake, the cheapest you’ll find the iPad mini 4 elsewhere is $358 on Amazon. Of course, if you’re a Prime member, the 2-day free shipping might be a factor in your decision.
Both Target iPad sales will run through 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 30. That’s this Saturday, so keep that in mind. Additionally, stock of the tablets appears to be limited — so you might want to hurry if you want to take advantage of the discounts.
