bestbuy
Best Buy is offering the previous generation iPad 3 for $50 off and a free $75 Best Buy Gift Card for today only. The specific models offered are:

- iPad Wi-Fi/64GB/Black for $649.99 and $75 Gift Card
- iPad Wi-Fi/32GB White for $549.99 and $75 Gift Card
- iPad Wi-Fi/32GB/Black for $549.99 and $75 Gift Card

Note that this is not the most recent generation iPad, so the $50 off price is a little disingenuous. If you are willing to purchase a refurbished iPad, these models are available from Apple's online store for deeper discounts.

3rd Gen. hmmm.
Tricky, tricky, Best Buy.

Coal in your stockings.

I . . . don't know. I agree with the author about the deal being a touch "shady".

What?!?! How is this "shady" or "tricky"? The ad clearly states that this is a 3rd generation iPad and it states that right next to the iPad label. The "3rd generation" note isn't buried in small fine print anywhere. Sheesh...I know BB isn't the best electronics retailer out there, but come on...there's nothing shady about what they are doing.

I agree. And am proud to say I haven't been a Best Buy patron for well over two years now. Quite a change from the years 1999-2004 when I bought all of my videogames and computers/accessories from them.

Tempting, only if they were offering the 16GB model in the deal. Nice try BB.

I . . . don't know. I agree with the author about the deal being a touch "shady". This is clearly meant to liquidate their stock of outdated models (the older new iPad) at a price that looks like a good deal for the current models (the newer new iPad). God, I knew the moment I saw "the new iPad" that this crap was going to happen!

I'm still lamenting the mini's price. It's really hard to justify paying $329 for last years A5X and a non-retina screen when just a few more $20's will nab you a refurbed iPad 3 with basically the same internals, but a sprawling retina canvas that's still state-of-the-art.
