    I’m thinking of taking the plung tomorrow before the sale at Best Buy is over. I can pick up at 64GB iPad Pro 10.5 along with a ASK and Zagg Glass screen cover for close to $800. It would be more right now at B&H Photo even with them not charging me tax.

    My question is, is there any way to squeeze out a little more savings at Best Buy?

    Grab an open box, you can usually save an additional 75 to 90 dollars off.

    Or buy with a card with 90 day price protection, like discover/ other cards, and hope for the best for a Black Friday deal

    I bought my 12.9 right around launch at got my $99 back in a check from Discover, recently. But been enjoying my 12.9 on 11.0 betas ALL summer and now GM

    Well worth it to get it when u need it, and figure out pricing stuffs later imo

    unless you have a finite budget

    Delaware is tax free but the cost of the trip depending on where you live would not be worth it.

    Best bet? Buy open box and maybe hopefully there will be an additional sale somewhere to price match within the return period to get back the difference.

    There was an open box iPad at my local BB. 256GB WiFi 10.5 for $587. It was pretty dirty, the screen was all smudged. But it was a good deal. The sales lady said that open box devices aren’t eligible for AppleCare, though. Not sure if she meant AC+.

    As long as it's bought within 60 days from whenever the original person purchased and returned it (standard ac+ grace period) I can't see it being a problem but idk

    You have to go look through their site. Many, but not all, iPads have discounts. It turns out that some go up to $300 off.

    But from what I was told, today is the last day for this particular sale. A new one starts tomorrow, and the sales folks don't know the details of that yet.

    Get B&H to price match & you’ll get that price plus no tax or shipping.

    The Verizon 10.5 cellular models are on sale for $200 off.

    Don't tell me... wrong carrier, right?

    She was wrong. You can get AppleCare on any open box iPad at Best Buy.

    I've purchased it numerous times.

    I bit the bullet and took advantage of the BEst Buy sale. I thought about getting B&H Photo to price match so I could still save on the tax, but I don’t believe you can place an online order today. Plus, I just didn’t want to wait any longer ;)

    I grabbed the iPad Pro 10.5 64GB along with the Apple Smart Keyboard and a Zagg Glass screen protector. Now I just need to get the Khomo back cover and I’ll have the complete package.

    Open box was great. $636 for the 12.9, 2017. It was perfect too and wow, it looks beautiful. My iPad Air 2 looks so dated now.
