Not the original deal at the start of this thread (that was 50 off and 75 gift card for the 3). This was a deal that started today. It appears that all except for the 64gb are now sold out. The ad, the UPC and the specs all indicated it's a 4.

They are saying $50 drop NOT off though, big difference in wording from the MRbot tile.

Shady? Not at all.

Tricky? Not in the strictest sense.
Not "tricky", as in "deceitful", but "tricky", as in "I almost jumped on this deal before I read the details."
The advertising drew me in (like it should have), but the full-disclosure kept me from taking action.

People clueless about iPad models might think they're getting a better deal than they actually are. Then there's the additional commitment to spend $75 more via the gift card, which isn't all that great if you're not a Best Buy shopper.

Bottom line, I still agree with you.

Everything is legit. Everything has been disclosed.
