As part of its Father's Day promotional push, Target is offering the 16 GB non-Retina Wi-Fi iPad mini for just $199 in either white or space gray, a savings of $100 over Apple's standard pricing. The offer is only valid in-store, although customers can purchase online for store pickup. Quantities do, however, appear to be very limited, as most stores are currently showing no available stock.

The discounted pricing is valid through June 14, so customers looking to take advantage of the big discount should check back frequently if their local stores are currently out of stock.

(Thanks, Steve!)

But it also looks like Target is clearing out their old non-Retina iPad stock for a possible newer iPad maybe?:)
Loss leaders are not a sign of anything.

Stores do this on a regular basis with popular products to lure in shoppers.

Wal-Mart, at least the one we went to, does do price matching. My wife showed them the Target price on her phone (via Safari) and they price matched. Which is good since most Targets didn't have stock anymore.

This fathers day, let dad know he's second rate by getting him a second rate iPad Mini.

Tell dad "hey, you're outdated and here is a crappy tablet you can find on Craigslist for about $100"........."But I payed $199"

So unless you get your dad the most expensive gift it shows he isn't a good dad? As a dad, I was very happy to get this for father's day. Yeah, it isn't the best tablet, but I don't need the very best, especially since I didn't have tablet and I now have a piece of technology that didn't even exist a few years ago. I'm middle class, so I'm from a family where we typically spent 50 bucks on a father's day gift, much less $200. And we typically don't spend this much on father's day gifts, so it's more like a gift for the whole family.
