Target Discounts Apple Watch Series 1 to $180 While Staples Marks Down 9.7-Inch iPad to $260

by

Target has kicked off the week with a discount on the Apple Watch Series 1 from 2016, offering the 38mm model for $179.99 and the 42mm model for $209.99. Each device is available in aluminum with a Sport Band in either White or Black.

The Apple Watch Series 1 typically sells for $250 in 38mm and $280 in 42mm, so today's sale represents savings of $70 in both case sizes. Target's sale is a match for the same low prices seen during a pre-Black Friday sale at Macy's last year, as well during Target's own Black Friday sale. At the time of writing, all models are available to ship for free, and store pickup is also available depending on stock at your local Target.

Another notable Apple device sale that went live today is at Staples and centers on the 9.7-inch iPad from 2017. In the sale, customers can get $30 off instantly and then an additional $40 off using coupon code "84761".

This marks the 32GB 9.7-inch iPad down to $259.00, from $329.00, and the 128GB model down to $359.00, from $429.00. As a comparison, retailers like B&H Photo are selling the same models for $299.00 and $399.00, respectively. Color options for the 32GB include Space Gray, Gold, and Silver, while the 128GB is only available in Gold and Silver.


Staples' sale ends on January 27 and is available on the retailer's website or by phone order. Additionally, only one coupon code can be used per customer. To apply the coupon code to an order, add one of the iPads to your cart, then click "Add/Edit Coupons" under the Order Summary section of your cart.

I get the following message for the staples deal,

“Coupon couldn't be redeemed:The entered coupon has already been used and is no longer valid. Please try another coupon.”

The total is $299 not $259.

I encountered the same error after entering the coupon code reported here and on the Staples web site. $259 is a great deal for the iPad, but $299 not so much and I would pass on it.

Update: It seems the coupon code fails when checking out as guest. I created an account and logged in. Adding the coupon was accepted.
