    My sister is looking for an ipad for my niece. The thing is she really wants a full size one like she uses in school.

    I have looked and looked and while their is plenty of mini deals, I have yet to see a $250-$275 full sized ipad out there. What seem to happen to all the 4th gen deals?

    Should she just give up and get a cheap ipad air somewhere?

    They got $299 16gb ipad 4 wifi models at refurb store on apple.com.

    There you go.

    Honestly the 16GB ipad Air $299 deals during black friday were a much better deal (lighter/faster ipad).

    But you wanted a sub $300 full size ipad...you got it.

    If you have a Microcenter within driving distance, I just got a new 32GB iPad Air for $359 + tax. Mini 2 32GB was $299. I think the 16 GB Models should be close to $300.

    Or I can send you my wife's iPad 3 for $300 and I can get myself a Mini 2 :D

    Plenty of them if you don't mind used on eBay or Craig's List.

    Thanks for all the replies, and the iPad 3 offer. My sister really doesn't trust the 2nd hand market if it isn't through apple.

    My sister just ended up getting an iPad air for a lot more than they were on Black Friday, but not horrible a deal. If somehow there is a sale before Xmas she can always return it.

    While my sister doesn't get her deal, my niece really wanted a full sized iPad, she will be very happy.

    Staples is advertising the iPad Air 16GB for $319.00.

    Like someone posted above: Apple refurb store.

    Packaging is plain (who cares?) but the product is indistinguishable from new.

    Dunno if it interests you but Chase has a $225 back when you spend $500 when you apply (and get approved) for the Freedom card.

    IMO that's too much hassle for what it's worth

    When you are going to get something, keep an eye on slickdeals.net,

    Was browsing through and saw my old post.

    Sister ended up with an ipad air 16gb from staples a few weeks ago. In the end it hit the same sale price as BF.

    Like I figured, there really wasnt any ipad 4's under $300 from any legitimate sources. She did mess up a little because micro computer centers had an ipad air 32gb for just a bit more and was more future proof. But she didnt want make the drive for more memory.

    Understood. Most places will price match Microcenter prices. But hope she enjoys hers.
