    I bought my ipad 4 last Friday and there is a sale going on this Friday. Would it include the 4? Do they do price adjustments? Or should I return it and get a brand new one? Any thoughts? What happened on the previous Black Friday events?

    Most places that do price adjustments specifically state that it excludes Black Friday deals. I have never dealt with Apple on this but I know for a fact that Best Buy does not do any price matching of Black Friday prices.

    Still believe the best deal for the 4 is the Target one with the $60 gift card plus an additional %5 off with the Red Card. Apple has never been one for discounting much.

    Best Buy is doing $60 off the price of any wifi ipad 4 or 2 (not a gift card). I ordered on yesterday.

    The iPad 4 at best buy is also a decent deal at 60 off all retina display models. Factor in the few percent you get back as reward zone certificates, it pretty much matches the Target deal. Also BB's deal is available online (not sure if Target's is) and you can use any credit card to purchase (so Amex users can get their extended warranties)

    Looks like you got robbed partner... or did you know? I hate how it's getting hard to tell which iPad models retailers are selling.

    The models yesterday were definitely the new ipad. The description even lists the A6X processor and lightning connector.

    I just checked my order again and it is definitely for model MD514LL/A

    And the link that you quote even says that it is for ipad with retina display. Which is the new models Christ it even has one on display.

    The old models also have retina display... and the link is 100% for the old model. A5X processor.

    Has anyone seen any Black Friday deals out there on the iPad Mini? Or is it too soon for those?

    To be fair, I'm a silver member too and checked out e deals yesterday and it was 100% guaranteed the newest model. Said lightening and a6. I was actually doing some math to consider returning mine and grabbing it up.

    Looks like they switched them, hope they honor Steve Dave's purchase.

    Yeah ordering it yesterday, I noticed that the Best Buy page had both the third and the fourth gen models (MC and MD prefixes in the part numbers). I ordered the 4th Gen, MD prefix and it discounted it $60 off. The discount was also applicable on the 3rd gen models. I am assuming it will be the same on Thanksgiving day/Black Friday.

    Doubt the ipad mini is gonna go on sale, since apple doesn't even have enough stock for it.

    And I assume none of the third party sales apply? If anyone knows of any, please share. Does the Target Red Card 5% thing work on Mini?

    the 5% off with Red Card works with anything in store or online from Target

    Does anyone know if macmall.com price matches appl store for their Black Friday event? If so, that would be the absolute best deal: $41 off and save 6-8% ($40 in taxes). And that is real money. Not a gift card that you'll buy to use crap you don't need or really want.

    No one here knows, but I bet someone at MacMall does. Who knows, maybe someone from MacMall will read this thread and answer.

    Not likely that they would mark down items where they still can't meet existing demand.
