I rather get it from BB. Remember at Target you pay 499 or 599 before tax and then you get a gift card, Bestbuy is 60 off which will save you a llittle on tax. Help me out here in So Cali.

I want to thank the OP for this thread, I ended up getting an iPad 2 for my wife for much less than I thought I would end up spending, $340 plus tax, she will love it!

Just a heads up: iPad 4 is $40 off not $60. Older generations are $60 off.
Might as well get it from Apple instead.

Nope wifi fourth gen iPads were definitely all $60 off. Of course I think most, if not all, are sold out.

I just called Best buy and I was told 4th gen iPads are $40 off. Either way, I don't see much of a difference with that of apple's.

The 16GB appears to only be $40 now. Perhaps that price was only good for a short period today. The 32 and 64 models are still $60 off.

They are back in stock. Just added a 32gb to my cart and it came up as $539. Maybe it's online only, since there is no "pick up in store" option. 20 bucks is 20 bucks

Edit: just saw the other replies that 32gb is 60 off, but 16gb is only 40 off.

Ooh, I was thinking I should've went with the 32 GB version but I got my tracking number already and I shouldn't complain, really. $480 for an iPad is pretty sweet deal, I'd say.

I don't know how long it was, but here was an email I received about the iPad 2 being $60 off:

Exchanged my 16GB for a 32GB iPad 4. It was $60 off and because I had reward zone certificates, the cost to upgrade was only $32!

Grabbed an iPad 4 myself. Couldn't resist the price.

I have the Mini, had the 3 before I returned it for the Mini but I'm looking forward to seeing now how I feel about the 4.

I liked my experience in an Apple store with it but time will tell if it will perform as well in places where I'll be using it the most especially with wifi.

Had a buyer for my iPad 2 16GB WiFi model, so I figured I'd take this opportunity to upgrade to the iPad w/ Retina LTE model.

I had been hounding the local Best Buys and Apple stores since the 15th or so asking if they were in stock, and I finally found one last Saturday at the local Best Buy Mobile - 16GB VZW in Black so I bought it on the spot, however I kept it in the box knowing that Best Buy was having a sale on iPads on Black Friday.

Instead of fighting the crowd at the big box Best Buy, I went back to BB Mobile in the mall. Got there about 10:30P on Thanksgiving and I was sixth in line. They see me in there all the time, so the manager agreed to make an exception to do a price match / return exchange for me prior to 2PM on BF as the general store policy dictates.

I waited in line behind the few other people activating GS3s and finally it was my turn. He rang up the return on my old receipt and then tried to sell me back another LTE iPad, but they both rang up at $629. They did some looking and apparently the LTE models were NOT included in the sale. They started scouring the ads and though it was ambiguously worded (Save $40-60 on iPad 2 and iPad with Retina Display), they deduced that the LTE models were not included in the sale. The manager was cool though and said that since I waited in line for an hour to process the exchange, he would give me $40 off. I asked about the $60, and he said that was for the iPad 2, not the iPad 4. Since they were swamped, I said that's fine, but why would they discount the lower priced model more than the higher priced model. Ultimately, he went back and grabbed an iPad 4 16GB and it rang up $459, so he gave me the $40 off.

All this was around 1:00A, so I'm assuming the iPad 4 was always only $40 off, and only for the Wi-Fi only model.

Though it wasn't the $60 I was hoping for, at least I got money off of an LTE iPad, and it mostly covered the tax on the device.

That was a lot to type to be wrong. The ipad 4 wifi versions were $60 off. This thread is full of people who bought them for that price.

Way to be a dick about it.

I'm just relating MY experience. The dude rang up the iPad 4, and I saw the price on the screen with my own eyes - $459.99.

Last time I checked, $499.99 - $40.00 = $459.99.

I picked up a iPad 4 32GB WiFi yesterday at Best Buy for around $484! After open box discount was $535 (it's perfect btw)...plus the -$60 deal on iPads they had going on (store manager said deal didnt apply to open box items, but after some convincing he gave me an additional 10% off, - $54) and I got it for an AMAZING price!

Deals are out there, you gotta find em
