    Hey guys

    Just a money saving tip if you're into that sort of thing.
    If you have AMEX card, use your app and look for the Amex deals. Sync your card to the staples and or best buy deals.
    Spend $250 or more at best buy and get $25 statement credit.

    So that's $479-$25 for an ipad air.
    Not bad!

    I wonder why I only see the Staples offer and not Best Buy offer on my app?

    If you use a discover cash rewards card the savings stack. I got 5% through shop discover (ordered on apple.com for in store pickup) which stacks with 5% cashback on online purchases. 10% isn't bad at all.

    I went with an online/mailorder co. - has Air for $479, 0 tax, free ship. No Discover 5% cause they were only doing phone orders. still happy with the total... saved about $60. but now I'm considering a Tmo Air instead...

    That's the card I used for my purchase. That means I'll get back about $38 in rewards?

    I used to have a blue cash back from Amex. It's 3% cash back on dept stores. 6% is for supermarkets

    Are you sure you got the Shop Discover 5%? The site says the iPad Air is excluded.

    Then they've updated the site in the last couple days. On Friday/Saturday it only claimed to exclude the 5s.

    Edit: Looks like BestBuy, Target, and Walmart.com are all 5% on ShopDiscover and don't list an exclusion for the ipad.

    You can save 5% purchasing at Target and using their Red Card. I haven't checked to see what they are selling them for yet.

    Used the AMEX offer and expecting a $25 credit on my statement in a few weeks, for the iPad mini 16gb wifi @ Best Buy
    not bad!

    I'm sure target will run the Mini for $379 and a $50 gift card or something on black friday. Except i'm not standing in line for that, no way! :rolleyes:

    Can confirm the Shop Discover 5% works at Best Buy. Just got the email confirming my $30 coming back from my 32gb Air.

    That's great news. Not sure what the "haha" connotes, though.
