The iPad discounts are comparable to what these retailers were offering throughout the holiday season. I'm sure it's to clear out inventory for incoming new models in the next month or so (although they had the same deal on the 9th generation iPad the prior year). $350 USD for the 10th gen iPad is a fair price and would have been an ideal starting price for the device.

Ever notice these special offers are almost always the most bare bones model(s).

Only in refurbished models have I seen sticker prices lower than my 10% military discount on new gear.
Resellers like Best Buy usually only stock the base SKUs. If you want configure to order models, like a MacBook Air with 16 or 24GB of RAM, you have to buy from Apple (or a deluxe reseller like B&H).

Picked up an open box Air for 412. Great deal and now I’ve got a knock around iPad with decent specs I can put in a case and take to the gym or use in the kitchen like I’ve been too afraid to with my 11” Pro.

They recently had the iPad Air 5 for $449. Way better than what the Veteran's discount through Apple will get you.

Agreed about the pricing. Which is why I didn't upgrade my wife's 9th Gen last year. They recently had the Air 5 for $450, got $185 trade on the 9th so pulled the trigger knowing the Air 5 will still be better than the iPad 11 (unless you care about front camera placement, which she doesn't).
