    Today, I'll be ordering my iPad Pro 10.5", and I wanted to be sure I was getting the best price.

    The 64GB wifi version retails for $650 + tax = $708
    Apple Education sells them for $630 + tax = $687
    B&H has said they'll price match the $630 without tax.

    Meaning, I can get a 19.5" 64GB wifi model for $630 shipped and out the door.

    Has anyone done better than this?

    Being such a new product, I think you're only option is to get the EDU price.. I work at a teaching hospital and so I qualify for the EDU pricing and I opted for that with local pickup. I didn't want to wait for it to be shipped.

    Id wait for holidays and usually can get a 100-150 discount.

    Never buy an ipad on release window, is my opinion.

    with a tax that high I'd strongly recommend ordering online instead

    Some companies have an Apple EPP program, if you can't get the Education discount. Not much off though... $636 for 10.5 base model, for example.

    If you were quick, BB would have price-matched Costco @ $619 for the LTE model, as that's what Costco had for their pic/description, online.

    Woot.

    I ordered from Abt.com. $779 for 64GB/LTE, minus a $25 email subscription coupon. No tax collected.

    I also purchased via Ebates, which will net me 2% cashback ($15), plus $10 as a new member.

    So that works out to $729. Purchasing from B&H would have worked out to $759. Abt ships UPS Ground, though, so it's kinda slow.
