    A friend notified me that HEB had coupons that gives you $20 off, every $100 you spend on gift cards.

    All I had to do was walk in and buy $500 worth of Best Buy gift cards for $400. Then used the gift cards to buy my iPad.

    Of course this deal may not be available in everyones area (I'm in TX), but may be worth a shot.

    Best of luck finding your iPads.

    Yeah, it's an HEB promotion so it's very regional.

    I already ordered my iPad, plus BB here doesn't have any. However, I did use their deal to stock up on some more iTunes gift cards.

    Be sure to look for the coupons. At my HEB they were hanging in on the Gift Card display. Also there are some exclusions (i.e. you can't use on HEB, Visa, or AMEX gift cards).

    Great Deal!

    Now that's a great idea! :D
    The fly in the ointment would be finding the iPad you want at Best Buy. ;)

    Great idea! I will have to keep this in mind for future purchases when they have this type of deal.
