    Anyone come across any price reductions in UK yet? For example, it seems Staples in US has, but not Staples UK!

    Go for eBay or Gumtree. Plenty of new Pro selling for 100/200 pounds less.

    I think op is looking for stores instead of second hand (but I could be wrong)

    In the states it's staples, Best Buy and a few others.

    Same here in Malaysia, can't find any deals anywhere :/ I am quite envious of the US.

    I haven't seen any.

    The problem with those is even the new ones are often models intended for the Hong Kong market, questionably sourced.

    Simply electronics have been going for years. I've ordered from them before, there shipping is God slow and I suspect it's actually shipping out of China hence the 7 days to hit the door step but the savings can't be ignored.

    But my point is there are offers you just have to search

    Their Trustpilot site looks even worse! https://uk.trustpilot.com/review/www.simplyelectronics.net

    It looks like they're based in Hong Kong so you also have import duty / VAT to consider when buying from there

    I know. I mean, you can't get it reduced from a big company. eBay and gumtree are not everyone's cup of tea. Would be nice if you could walk into currys or the like and get a nice discount.

    Simply Electronics are a well known importer - chances are VAT hasn't been paid on the item either.

    From their T's and C's

    In other words, we import it for you and if you're caught then it's not our problem.

    No established uk retailers are discounting the iPad Pro. It's full retail price or find someone selling theirs.

    Correct 9/10 you don't pay. Honestly I'm not saying to order it's purely a there are cheaper options available out there.

    Never get any decent discounts on new iPads in the uk. Only grey imports.
