    If you or a family member are or were ever a member of the armed services(honorably discharged only), you can buy the new 2017 iPad for 199.99 now. The deal ends in a week. Ordered one for me and my parents. I used one when they first launched and was impressed, but not sure how they handle iOS11. I assume well.

    Per OP’s post here, veteran eligibility is new and has just been made available at AAFES and the other military exchanges. Online verification is done at vetverify.org, then online registration at the exhange in a few days.

    Thanks for the tip! I bought my fathers iPad Pro during a sale, they even sold AppleCare+ at the Navy Exchange.

    These are being sold through the military channels, but both of my iPads were sourced and shipped directly from Apple. I'm very happy with what Apple has done with this promotion. When it was announced I thought it would sell out immediately, but with Apple doing the fulfillment, they're ensuring any military member that wants one can get one. Thank you, Apple.

    Is this deal available locally (e.g. Camp Pendleton)?

    They are being sold at the PX, but from what I hear they didnt get very many and what they had sold out quickly. Always best to call ahead.

    Thanks for sharing this deal. I had my brother in law order one to give my dad for Christmas. I was looking at the Black Friday deals, but this is $50 + tax cheaper than those. Thanks!

    We received our iPads today and I'm very impressed with how this entire deal went down. Easy to order, shipped quickly (directly from Apple, btw) and the process to upgrade to iOS11 was obviously simple, and the iPad runs amazingly well on ios11. This tablet is a great value imo, even at the Black Friday deal of 250 that it appears to be at most major retailers.

    How long from when you ordered to when they were delivered? Seven days? (Did you order when you created this thread?)

    Interesting yours came from Apple. Directly from AAFES in Tennessee in my case.

    I ordered them last Friday. Apple filled the order on Tuesday and they arrived on Thursday.
