    Wow - you would:
    Back up your iPad
    Reset it
    Put it back in the box with the accessories
    Drive to Target
    Negotiate the Black Friday crowds and possibility they won't have it in stock when you arrive
    If purchased, restore from iCloud and possibly have to sync from iTunes

    For $20 difference?
    Or are you talking about asking for a price match where they would just refund you the difference?

    I'm going to leave that up to them.. I can either just get the difference or they can be stuck with an open box item. I don't restore from iCloud, and all of the accessories never came out of the box so it's really not that big of a deal. Plus sorta want white anyways so we will see what they do.

    How does the gift card work? Im a Brit and going to be in USA over Thanksgiving for work and was planning to get the iPad 4, can you use the card right away off the iPad or is it for another date etc.

    They sell you the iPad and the giftcard for the total price of the iPad. You can only spend the gift card on the next purchase.

    But you can use it for a smart cover or something.

    Probably... unless the 5% doesn't work on Apple products. I know when Best Buy used to mail out 10% OFF coupons to me for being an RZ member I couldn't use them on Apple or Sony Products (amongst some other products I don't recall)

    Yep the 5% is off everything. I wonder if you get the $60 gc for the $399 ipad2? If so i might grab one as a gift for family. $380 +$60 gc and free shipping

    Will the offer be in-store only or online as well? It would be great being able to avoid the store on Black Friday.

    More then likely in store only. Yes you can use the red card for 5% off. I wish they didn't require blank checks for the red card debit

    Just an FYI: they DO return the blank check to you, right after you're done signing up.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that in the fine print of the ad it says it does not apply to the iPad mini

    Also it is for Retina display iPads, the iPad 2 doesn't qualify

    leave that up to them? as if it's their fault? how ridiculous. all for $20.

    go in the middle of the night, get trampled by crazy people, give target the finger all for $20. how sad!

    I see.

    I didn't ask this, because I was able find a blank check, but is there any reason why they need a physical blank check instead of your bank account's routing (ABA?) and account numbers? I can't imagine a good reason; like I said, they gave it back after getting whatever information off of it they needed.

    sorry unacceptable. This offer is only for US CITIZENS and you will need your US PASSPORT when you line up. They will register with the ICE and INS to make sure you are not on a no fly list or deport list. You will have to use your fingerprint upon checkout and the ipad will only activate once you input your social. GAME OVER BRAH

    I would try to get the difference in money back. Most likely they will have 5 in stock with a thousand people in line trying to get the same deal.

    I just had to register just to reply to the above posting. Any consumer can buy from Target or any store for that matter as long as you pay in US dollars or a credit card (a form of ID is usually asked when using a credit card, a foreign passport is totally acceptable). This offer is not just for US citizens. US permanent residents and any foreigners who happen to travel to the US at the time the promotion is taking place are eligible. No fingerprint scan, no need for SSN, nothing like that!

    When you buy any piece of electronics in the US and then travel with it back to Europe, Asia, or wherever, you will be asked to complete a custom declaration form. You need to tell customs what products you are having in your luggage, their value and whatnot. Based on that, you might be asked to pay customs taxes that are applicable to you (this varies by country). That's it. This whole process is totally legal and straightforward. Hope this helps.

    He's just trying to be sarcastic/funny, but he doesn't seem to understand how sarcasm or humor works.

    I just bought a refurb iPad 3 last week. Can't decide if I should return it and try to get the 4 from target.

    I was still unsure on whether to get the mini or the 4, but if I can get the 4 for $415, it's a no-brainer.

    Does everyone think these will sell out very fast? I'm sure they have plenty of stock at the moment.

    For base 16gb iPad 3 $379

    Vs $499-$60 gift card for iPad 4 ($440).

    $60 difference.

    I would go with iPad 4.

    That's what I thought...I actually have the 32GB, so I'd go for that, but the math is the same....
    I have until Jan 9, 2013 to return my refurb so hopefully I can get in on this Target deal.
