The newest 9.7-inch iPad, regularly priced at $330, was selling for $250 everywhere on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Today, we’re seeing a sale that’s nearly as good — though we don’t know how long it will last.
Right now, the entry-level iPad is on sale at Amazon and Best Buy for $260 — that’s $70 off the usual list price, and just a bit off the Black Friday/Cyber Monday low. This is the newest version that Apple introduced back in March; it supports Apple’s excellent Pencil stylus (which is not included) and comes equipped with a 2016-era A10 processor that provides enough firepower for multitasking and most productivity and entertainment needs. It’s still the best choice for the average person, especially since starts at $799, with higher-end configurations costing $1,000 or more.
Amazon and Best Buy are both selling the entry-level 32GB iPad for $270 and the 128GB model, which has been discounted by $80 to $350. Best Buy has also discounted the cellular version of the 32GB iPad to $260, but since it requires signing up for a two-year contract, we don’t recommend it.
