    I had been looking for an iPad mini 2 for a while now, and was willing to go the refurb route, I've had good luck before with refurbs from walmart.com, so about 2 weeks ago I had found an actual iPad mini "3" 64GB for $350. so it took me a couple of days to make my mind up, I go back to buy it, and it was sold out. so I put a reminder notification in for when they stock up again. late last night I get a notification, but wait till today to buy it. I bought it, then told a buddy of mine to get one, he logs in, and they are sold out again. these go very fast. looks like I'll hold on to this one for the long haul. 64GB is what I've always wanted

    Congratulations!!
    My next iPad Mini will be 64gb as well. I'm currently using as 32gb rMini2 and wish I had more elbow room. I'm waiting for the 4 to come out but will snap one up as soon as they are released. I'm using an iPhone 6, so I find myself holding the home button on my rMini like a dupe. lol
    Enjoy your purchase :apple:

    Congratulations, you got an awesome deal, especially if you consider that a year ago, and iPad Mini 2 64GB would have cost you $599!

    true. it showed up, and to me it seemed more like a return than a refurb. it didn't have plastic on it, and the box was a bit dented on the edges, and it had one tiny smudge on the back of the tablet, but the screen was mint. so I figured, well I can always return it, so I've used it for 2 days now, and everything's great!

    That's not what I've heard people say from refurbed Apple products, but if you're satisfied, that's all that matters!

    walmart is not to resell it if its been open.they have to send it back to apple if its been open.that just proves how walmart is run.im sure prized that you got a iPad instead of a dummy one.
