    Just glancing this week Target flyer and it says you get a 40 dollar gift card for any iPad. So that would technically for example be 329 - 40 (gift card) = 289 for a new iPad mini (16 gb) right? Or are there any better deals out there?

    From my experience with Target, don't get your hopes seeing the Mini anytime soon. ;)

    That'd be a great deal if they actually had the mini

    Yeah, that's a good deal, and since Target has _everything_, the $40 is almost as good as cash.

    Yeah right, they're usually the best place to go.

    All of my local ones had ample supply of the iPad 3's the morning they came out.

    If I want a iPod Touch 5th gen from Apple, I need to wait 5-7 days shipping. Target has them in store. Target also offers a 30 day return policy. I'd always try Target first if possible.

    At several Target's in my area, when the iPad 3 came out it took 3-4 weeks before they had them in stock. They'd get 1 or 2 and they were sold immediately.

    I see the ad, but what does this mean? I should go by the Target store on the 2nd Nov. next week and see if I can score one? I wish they would put more details.

    Heres the ad

    or just go to

    The key to all of this is if the target near you has the mini/ipad 4 or you can try to get bestbuy to price mach it

    You can't use the gift card for that purchase though...its for future purposes.


    Also thats the iPad 3rd gen

    What he was trying to say is that we all need groceries to live, so that $40 is like cash, or (price of iPad - $40) type of thing.

    Apple gave me a free iPad Mini smart cover as a way of pricematching the Target deal. Good customer service.

    Did you just call them up or something?

    Are they still doing an additional 5% off with a target card purchase? That might make it even sweeter.

    That's an every day thing, not a promotion.

    Thanks for letting me know. I just called and they gave me a $45 off coupon! Good until the end of December for a purchase of $300 or more.

    Just called Apple and let them know about the deal at Target and they gave me a free smart cover to match the deal. All they did was verify the ad on targets site and they added it to my order.

    Damn, I struck out three times.... two said no we don't price match promotions like a gift card and the one other said this is for the 3rd generation iPad and Apple is offering it for way cheaper than $499 so that's Apple's deal is better anyways.

    I'm on hold right now hoping to do the same thing.
    If they don't price match or throw in the cover, I'll just try to buy at target and return to apple.
    done deal. Talked to a young lady names Kayla, offered to add the smart cover to resolve my issue.
    Said yes, and it will be here on Nov. 2nd!

    Good deal, thanks OP.

    I just called and was told they will not do anything since it is a new product. She pretty much told me to go ahead and buy it from target if i want and send the other back to apple. The $40 plus my target visa for an additional 5% off would be a pretty big savings.....
