Best Buy said Wednesday that it’s offering a $100 gift card with the purchase of the original 16GB iPad mini for $299.99 today and tomorrow. The deal is valid both in stores and online today, but will only apply to shoppers who purchase the tablet online tomorrow. It doesn’t apply to any other model of the iPad, or other capacities of the iPad mini.
It’s a good deal if you’re shopping for an iPad mini this holiday season, though if you want to purchase an iPad Air, you may want to look elsewhere. Target, for example, will sell the iPad Air on Friday for $479, as well as the iPad 2, with a $100 gift card. Meanwhile, H.H. Greg will sell the iPad mini for just $250, which is also a compelling offer if you live near one of the company’s retail stores.
Also, keep in mind, Apple has said that it will offer its own Black Friday deals for one-day only. The company hasn’t said which products will be discounted yet, but we know that it dropped the price of a few iPad models last year. Stay tuned for our full tablet Black Friday deal guides, where we’ll show you where to find the lowest prices on a variety of tablets.
