Last week, I shared my best buys on a iPad Air for Black Friday. Today we’re looking at the best price on an iPad Mini for Black Friday. Here are your three best options.
Walmart iPad Mini Deal for Black Friday
Like last year, Walmart is offering the iPad Mini for just $199 — that’s a $70 savings. This is straight-up savings, no gift cards or rebates required.
Even better, you don’t have to wait until Black Friday official starts on Thursday, because this item is part of Walmart’s “Black Friday starts early” campaign — which means you can buy it at this price right now!
Target iPad Mini Deals for Black Friday
Apple iPad Mini 2 16GB Tablet with Wifi for $269 + $80 Target Gift Card
If you are regular Target shopper, you will probably prefer this deal over Walmart’s, because your after-gift card price is actually lower. You’ll pay $269 out of pocket, but get back an $80 gift card — which you can spend on anything you want at Target. That puts your “effective” cost down to $189 — $10 less than Walmart.
The deal will be available in-stores starting Thursday at 9pm. It should also be available online, from Wednesday (time TBD) — but if last year is any prediction, don’t expect it to last long.
Note: If you are shopping for the iPad Mini 4, Target will have it for sale for $399.00 plus a $100 Target GiftCard, putting your “effective” price at just $299.99.
Best Buy iPad Mini Deals for Black Friday
iPad Mini 4 for $399.99 (Save $100)
The deals on iPads Minis at Best Buy aren’t nearly as exciting as the other options. They will have the iPad Mini 4 for $399.99, a $100 savings. But after the $100 gift card back at Target, their option on the same tablet is $100 more. I’d skip Best Buy on this deal if I was you!
What about iPad Mini Deals at Amazon?
Amazon’s Black Friday sneak peak said nothing about iPad Mini deals, unfortunately. And, based on past experience, Amazon is actually not usually a very good source for discounted Apple products.
The only exception in year’s past has been Apple laptops – so if you are in the market for a MacBook Air or a MacBook Pro, stay tuned: You might be in luck. For a iPad deal, however, I suggest checking out one of the three options above.
