    Best Buy currently has $100 off of the 12.9 inch IPP. I also was able to find it open item for another $77 off for a total of $623. On top of that I have $290 in Best Buy Rewards... (I spent something like $465 total for the iPad Pro 12.9 and a Pencil)

    Which is the better buy? 32gb iPad Pro 12.9 or 9.7? I haven't decided if I want 128gb or 32gb for the 9.7 Pro either... waiting to see if Best Buy has a good trade in offer like previous years. I had traded in an iPad 2 for something like $100 and got another $100 towards the purchase of an iPad Air 2 when it first came out. But I was leaning towards 128gb for the iPad Pro 9 but I don't see a trade in deal yet from Best Buy.

    I also own an iPad Air 2 64gb currently. Was debating trading that in/selling it on CL or handing it down to my wife and trading her Mini 1 for a store credit if they offer a good deal.

    Having a hard time deciding. What would you all do? My other option is keep the Pro 12.9 and the Air 2. Use the Air 2 at the gym and the 12.9 Pro at home... seems a bit too much of a luxury though. I generally keep lean on my tech and sell my older model off when I get the new "toy".

    Keep it. I have owned an iPad Air 2 128GB LTE since its lauch day, and I just got 1 iPad Pro 12.9 128 GB Wifi-Only for $799 before tax (Bestbuy matches price from Staples). Because iPad Pro 12.9 Wifi Only is less portable than an iPad Air 2 LTE, I sill keep my Air 2.

    Yes, it does. Yesterday, I came bestbuy to pick up my $699 iPad Pro 12.9 32GB, but I did not open its box. Today, after knowing that the 9.7" has only 2GB RAM, I decided to keep the 12.9. Then, I saw someone said that Staples has 128GB version $150 off, so I came back bestbuy to return the 32GB and purchased the 128GB one.

    Nice! Having two iPads make me feel guilty though. Still debating getting the 128gb 9.7 pro and selling my Air 2 on CL

    Why oh why did I enter this thread?! Another killer deal from Staples that is irresistible. I'm trying to resist and my wife is, "get it! Get it!" Yeah, she's a keeper. :D
    Edit: update, placed an order for a 128GB space gray.

    What you mean? You did not hear about the $150 off from Staples until you entered this thread, did you? And it made you could not resist yourself from placing one? Lol

    Did you purchase form Staples.com? Do we have to pay sale tax for purchase from Staples.com?
    I just checked and see Estimated Tax is $0.00 in payment process? Does it mean I do not have to pay tax? Or sal tax will be charged on my credit card?

    I never purchased from Staples.com. When I purchased from other websites, sale tax is included in total. Please help me.

    Is it easy to return to Staples online?

    The Best Buy $100 off is pretty good if you combine with 10 percent coupon. You can get like $190 off a cellular model by combining those two discounts.

    How can I get bestbuy 10% coupon? Does it apply for iPad Pro?
    Does bestbuy match price from Staples and accept that coupon?

    I don't think you'll have much luck doing price match plus coupon.

    You can buy the online coupons from eBay but they cost like $20-$25 so make sure it's worth it to you and if you have to do a return for refund, you will lose your coupon. If you do exchange for identical item (same color and capacity like due to defect) at a store, your coupon would probably still apply.
