$500 iPad Pro 10.5” is a great deal. I’m really trying to resist that.

Sorry, Best Buy. $25 off (iPad Mini) isn't enough to convince me to order from your horrible company. And foisting upon me a product that I actively don't want makes the offer even less attractive.

That's a great deal on the 10.5" iPP! Might suggest a family member or two picking one up. For most uses the difference in speakers/screen will be more evident than the difference in processor speed.
