    Found a used iPad Pro 12.9 inch wifi only 128 gb on Craigslist for $750. Comes with Apple Pencil and carrying case. Good price? Thanks!

    Varies depending on stores and sales available.

    I would say you are hard pressed to find a better deal. $750 for the 128gb and apple pencil will be tough to beat.

    That's $300 less than retail for the two items so it seems good if the condition is good. You could always offer them $700.

    Swappa is AWESOME! I got $400 for my iPad Air 2 64GB! Only $10 to sell and it feels MUCH more secure than eBay with staff that approves all listings. VERY pleased.

    Nah. Just wait for sales.

    Staples had the 128gb brand new wifi for like $750-800 recently.

    Google "iPad Pro slickdeals and u can see what the lowest price deals have been in the past.

    Like I see lots of 6 month old cell phones like the note 5 or iPhone 6S. Many people got these phones on November/December Sam's club/Costco/target $250-300 gift cards and still reselling them for $550-600.

    So these people barely lost any money on these electronics.

    I haven;t used ebay in years and chose swappa to list. Cheaper and far less scammers/lowlifes.

    $400 is pretty fair if it was mint. Theyre still $499 new and $419 refurb (if you can even find a refurb which there are none right now from Apple)

    Honestly. Tablet sales (iPad for most
    Of us on macumors) have been slowing down since 2012.

    There are many sales and promos (gift cards). iPad Air 2 have routinely been "on sale" $100-150 cash off/gift cards since it was less than 3
    weeks old.

    Good price yes show up with $650 Cash they wont turn it down if they Turn it down just walk away by the time you take 2 steps the seller will accept.

    Make sure its Not a scam they are just trying to sucker in a victim carrying $700 cash.

    I have great experience on swappa too except one. The experience is only as good as your buyer. Just like eBay, a dishonest buyer can screw you through PayPal.

    Sure....no.

    Someone tried to pull that trick on me (offering me less than what was agreed) when I was selling my iPhone 5 back in August 2013 before the 5S.

    That's why as a Craigslist seller I usually insist meeting locally (within a 3 mile radius of my house or work place). That way I don't waste my time or car miles.

    Same I always meet inside a Starbucks the one time I met on the street I almost got in a fight. Tried to give me $100 for my Xbox 360 we agreed on $180 at the time.

    If they dont agree to meet at Starbucks thats a red flag. Many time people say I am outside Starbucks in my car come outside.

    I simply remain calm enjoy my hot chocolate or coffee and say meet you inside if they don't I know its for the best they leave or the come inside. Either way its a win/win. If they leave I know it was a crook.

    My thoughts, would you sell yours iPad pro for this price?
    now what can make you to sell it so low?
    1- has a problem?
    2- stolen ?
    3- fined lost one

    ask for the original receipt or call Apple with the serial #

    Yeah staples had it for 800 which is a good deal.

    This deal if in great condition is still $50 cheaper and comes with the $100 pencil. So it's a great deal still

    Thanks for the tips. I got the serial number and I do think it is a good deal. Do I just call apple and tell them I am buying an iPad and want it checked to see if it is stolen? I was also thinking of meeting at an authorized apple specialist store to do the transaction so they can check it out and make sure it is good to go.

    I was thinking that even with a $750 sale, this deal will probably still be better because of no sales tax and the apple pencil is included. I haven't found it cheaper anywhere else other than the app mercari.

    750 is a super good deal if the iPP is undamaged, not stolen, and is in pristine condition. Otherwise wait for sales on NEW iPPs from Best Buy or Staples.
