$100.00 off the 9.7 Pro is rather tempting though. That's what the price should have started at in my opinion when it launched in March 2016.

Before anyone blames poor sales, keep in mind retail stores are giving away $100 gift cards with the Galaxy S8.

Lol leave it to that one person who just has to bring up Samsung lol. And retailers have also done gift cards and BOGO deals for both Samsung and Apple. Pretty sure there was a BOGO deal going on when the iPhone 7 dropped. And carriers were also giving out device fee credits if you traded in your old phone thus making the iPhone 7 (32GB) basically free or heavily discounted if you got the Plus or a bigger GB size. This happens for both Samsung and Apple and LG and Microsoft and Sony, etc etc
