Deals: M1 iPad Air Hits Record-Low Prices at TigerDirect, Starting at $313.99 (48% Off) [Updated]

Online retailer TigerDirect has slashed pricing on the M1 iPad Air in several colors, offering the base 64GB configuration for just $313.99 in Purple and Pink.

That's a savings of 48% compared to Apple's normal $599.00 pricing, and is by far the lowest price we've ever tracked for these current-generation models. Both models are listed as in stock and should ship the next business day.

For those who prefer cellular connectivity, the 64GB M1 iPad Air is similarly discounted to $391.99 from $749.00 in Purple and Pink. The Starlight color option is also listed at this price but described as "available for pre-order" and thus not in stock for immediate shipping. The Starlight model also requires a $9.99 shipping fee, whereas the other colors come with free shipping.

If 64GB isn't enough storage, TigerDirect is also heavily discounting some cellular 256GB models down to $469.99 from $899.00. This pricing is available in Blue, Purple, and Pink, but as with the Starlight 64GB cellular models, these configurations are listed as available for pre-order and will incur a $9.99 shipping fee.

With discounts this steep, we can't rule out the possibility that this is a pricing error and orders could be canceled by TigerDirect, but this is an excellent opportunity for those willing to take a chance on a fantastic deal on the current iPad Air. For those unfamiliar with TigerDirect, it is a longtime computer retailer that was merged with MacMall and which also absorbed online assets and operations of notable now-defunct brick-and-mortar retailers Circuit City and CompUSA.

Update February 6: Multiple readers have reported that TigerDirect is indeed canceling these orders, citing technical difficulties that caused pricing errors over the weekend.

I will be contacting Apple, the Federal Trade Commission, my State Attorney General and the FBI.

Was just at the Best Buy in Southfield, MI. I tried to PM and pick one up these up today since TigerDirect is listed on Best Buy's price match guarantee page.

Manager Mike refused the PM and stating the reason as Tiger Direct has been hacked. I asked him if he knew that for sure since that is big and serious news to spread. He would not tell me how they know, but was willing to say it has been confirmed by Best Buy senior management.

Both my items have been cancelled. If a company thinks that they can offer a sale to customers and have it running all day long on multiple items, and then not honor that sale, then they should be investigated by the Federal Trade Commission for fraud. For them to say on their site that they are not responsible for typos and use that as an excuse, is downright criminal. This was blatant false advertising and almost 48+ hours later they have not addressed this. I will be contacting Apple, the Federal Trade Commission, my State Attorney General and the FBI. TigerDirect, you will pay for this in some way or another.
