If you missed the Best Buy sale on 10.5 iPad Pros (512GB for $699), Walmart is offering the same deal, and has them in stock. Just ordered one and it’s arriving tomorrow.

Coupled with the fact that Best Buy no longer gives MyBestBuy points for Apple or Beats products, there’s less incentive than ever for me to purchase exclusively from them.

I can’t wrap my mind around this... Walmart overnighted the iPad to you? ?

BestBuy no longer gives you points?

Nope. After 10/21/19, MyBestBuy points are no longer given for Apple or Beats products.

I’m at the ElitePlus level of MyBestBuy, and I’m done with them. The bulk of my points come from Apple and Beat products and their decision is going to factor into any decision I make to purchase future items. There is no longer an incentive when I can get the same item, for example, on a price match at Target AND get 5% off with RedCard.

You still get them by using a best buy credit card.

I know. I got rid of my BestBuy credit card because I had far better deals on other cards. BestBuy suddenly became fsr less attractive for purchasing Apple and Beats products. I used to laugh at the concept of purchasing from Target but now it doesn’t look half bad.
