    Couldn't tell ya. Mine is still sealed since Friday. I'm still unsure if I want to use it without a glass screen protector or not.

    Also, I'm really curious if the sale goes past today or not. Best Buy will start price matching on Tuesday, and if that's the case I will buy another Pro 11 there since I have nearly $700 in credit there, and just return the one I bought at microcenter in the following weeks.

    Looks like 10.5 back to 50 off instead of 150

    But 64gb 11” still 100 off @ 699

    iPad Pro 2018 models are still on sale. I guess we will find out tomorrow if it’s just a cyber Monday deal or not.

    I wish I had a MicroCenter near me - it’s such a good deal.

    How far is the closest one? I drove 100mi to one on Friday.

    I do and I don't wish the sale continues tomorrow. If it does continue, I wish they were up front about it since I wouldn't have traveled so far to get it and deal with the traffic on black friday.

    I picked up a 12.9 64Gb for $899 was $100 off. I had a 256GB one but returned it. I don’t need the space and the cost difference was huge.

    I was originally going for the 64gb, though for the $100 difference it was worth it to me. The normal 'apple tax' of $1 per GB is asinine, so when it was a $100 for 200GB I jumped on it.

    They didn’t have the 256GB and I didn’t need it any way

    Earlier this morning it wasnt. Glad you’re happy with your purchase ... delaying attempting a PM with Best Buy would have been risky to bet on, timeline wise

    The sale was still up at 8am. By 8:15a it was gone.

    I haven’t opened my IPP11 yet. Was hoping for a Best Buy PM. Looks like that isn’t happening now.

    Well you might wanna open it unless you’re thinking about reselling it sealed

    Micro center as far as I can tell has a flexible return policy open box still no restocking. And I think it goes until Just before Christmas if I’m not mistaken, the holiday return policy that is

    Edit- seems back?

    I’d get on it quick if possible before it potentially goes away again

    On hold with them now. I planned on going to my local store this afternoon. If the 888 number won't price match now I'll head to the store shortly.

    Edit: Customer service claims they don't price match apple products online, that you can only do it in store.

    I tried to have Best Buy price Match a Micro Center that was about 42 miles away (in a different state) last year sometime and they wouldn't do it. So this time around, I drove down and picked one up (It was like a 40 minute drive, mostly highway). I bought the 11 inch 256 for $150 off, but I'm debating the 11 vs 12.9 still. This debate is so exhausting in my head, haha.

    Success!

    Chatted online, they verified the price and agreed to PM. Only problem was I had a ton of credit to use and they wanted to me to pay full price then they would refund afterwards. The issue I have is in the past they have denied to refund the tax difference.

    Just went to my local store and had no issue PMing! Ended up paying $144 out of pocket after using a ton of credit for a IPP11 256gb.

    Yea. No issue to the PM online through chat. I just chose to go it in store instead.

    Who did you talk to? Because the person I just chatted with now said "Oh its in store only and 1 per household we dont do that" I think it depends on the person you talk to
    Also..with microcenter online what store did you choose, for me Tustin is out of stock so I chose Denver to at least show them they have it

    Im also not understanding this issue with the item being in store only..why does that matter to best buy, as long as the price can be confirmed whats the problem? Some items on sale at microcenter you can buy online others you have to go to the store
