I think people are trying to figure out why Best Buy is not selling them at this point, rather than trying to actually buy one.
called in last
Called in last night to my GF just a friend she works at Best Buy. Best buy tracks EVERYTHING, their data showed people were Returning ANYTHING and everything in exchange for an iPAd Pro 9.7
In the initial launch days anyone who bought a Laptop or even a 12.9 Pro or any tablet or even a in expensive PC were like hmmm thats $399 off (returned item) towards an iPAd Pro 9.7
So they are waiting a few days or weeks until thats dies down. The return rates were through the rough on their analytics metrics return rates hurt Best Buys margins store numbers etc.
Correct.I don't buy that explanation at all. If someone decided that they'd rather have an iPad Pro than whatever else they recently purchased, they would still return that item regardless of whether BB had the pro in stock or not.
I'm chalking it up to a simple web maintenance/housekeeping error. Best Buy is very good about keeping their website correct. I visit the site regularly and I can't recall the last time I've seen a "dead link".And the pro isn't some hot new item that people are clamoring for either. Furthermore if it were true, then maybe that would explain stores not having them but to have the item removed from the website entirely makes no sense.
nope. not a site problem.Links still broken today - looks like a site problem as they show up on the main iPad page:
