Is there anything like this deal available in the UK?
It seems US-based retailers frequently offer deals that aren’t replicated by shops on the majority of the planet. (Either that, or MacRumors doesn’t post about them?)

Quite. That 2018 iPad price is pretty amazing. We could do with a similar reduction here too.

I ended up snapping up a surface pro 6 for $450 off at BH. I just can’t justify the Apple tax even with these sales

Yesterday B&H had the 12.9" iPad Pro (Mid 2017, 64GB, Wi-Fi + 4G LTE, Space Gray) on sale for $599 (it's now $649).

That was just an amazing price - got the 12.9 inch. Can see the prices being really low on the last gen iPad Pro's to clear inventory, but the regular iPad price is crazy low too. Hopefully sales are not falling off a cliff to make these happen (do not want the iPad to go away) - but with the big phones it's become much less necessary to pull an iPad out to see stuff.
