I don't understand why anyone would even think of buying a 16gb iPhone or iPad. As a matter of fact apple should be ashamed of making a iphone6, iPad air, or mini with less than 32gb.

For US buyers, there is a Best Buy coupon in the current USPS mover's package (available from the post office clerk) good for 10% off one item. It specifically excludes Apple accessories (and several other things) but I was able to use it for a 2015 MacBook Pro (better than EDU or my EPP price). The coupon is good in store or online and codes are one-time use.
