On good morning America on its last minute deals segment it said walmart is offering it's iPad air 128gb for 40% off making it $479.00:eek:.
I looked online and didn't see anything and I'm stuck at home and cannot go check myself. I do think I overhead someone yesterday saying my store was out of iPads anyways?
So did anyone else see this segment this morning?

Here's what I found


Keyword here "From" selecting the 128GB model, brings the final price to 799

I found that too. And only one walmart near me carries that model and it's sold out. I am trying to find info on GMA now.

I think you're misunderstanding my point. They are offering iPads from 479 but the price goes up from the base model. They are not offering iPad Air 128GB for 479.

These guys shouldn't be shopping on line until they learn to read!

No, I understand you, but they specifically said the 128 gb was 40% off. Now this does seem strange to me as walmart never has sales like this so perhaps they have just misreported. I have the segment recorded on my DVr, but cannot find anything else online. I was just hoping someone else heard the same thing this morning?

Think about what you just said..

You have it DVR'd but you are looking for verification from others.

If you have it DVRd, can you not just hit rewind and listen to it again?

Or walmart paid for it to be said wrong. Look at us dummies talking about it.

Successful advertising. Kind of.

Same thing. I saw it on good morning America. I can't confirm it. My Walmart says it's not true.

Just left my local Wal-Mart

Of course the mgr knew nothing about the GMA segment on 40% off iPad Air 128 GB! He called HIS mgr to check - other people came into the store asking same question - Wal-Mart has no knowledge. The mgr told me to call tonight to check - but I purchased at full price anyway - if discount is honored Mgr told me I can return for a price adjustment. If so - Merry Christmas to me! Btw - just registered on this forum specifically for this issue! #FirstPost

OP, my apologies. I thought you were likely wrong, but I just watched that segment and there was no mistaking it. It had a freakin' graphic so you can't even say it was misread.

Wow. Seems like the smart money is to buy it at full price, push for adjustment, return if you fail.

128GB, wow. Do stores even stock that by default? I am in the midwest and can't say I ever saw more than a 32GB in our stores.

No problem, I still think it's a mistake on someone's part. My store carries the 128gb according to wm website, but it's sold out. All other stores near me do not carry it. I just wanted to know if anyone has succeeded in finding one and actually purchasing at that price. Walmart rarely has sales so this caught my eye. Especially with it being such an expensive model. I would return my 32 in a heartbeat if I could get the 128 for that price!

Too good to be true!

I heard the same segment on GMA this morning, and like an idiot, I believed them. I was planning on buying a 32 GB ipad air today anyway, but when I heard that I could get the 128 GB ipad air for less than $500, I called in late to work and went straight to Wal-Mart. The sells clerk laughed! He didn't even know Apple made an 128 GB ipad. He said the largest WalMart stocks (or at least my local store) is 32 GB. Sadly, GMA did bad reporting this morning and I fell for it! :mad:

I can't believe anyone actually even half-fell for this.

128 GB for less than the 16GB version?

If it sounds too good to be true. . . . . :rolleyes:

Bottom line is Walmart consistently has HIGH prices (full retail or near full retail) on iPad Airs,

Plus Walmart is usually out of stock of Airs and so they try to fool the public via sale ads that say "iPad Retina" which is really an iPad 4, not an Air.
