Just ordered a Silver 64GB from Costco at $489. It's my first iPad. I have a MacBook Air and an iPhone 6Plus, both with AppleCare. Should I worry about getting AppleCare for the iPad with Costco offering their 2 year coverage? Thanks in advance.

Hmmm....when I purchased my iPad Air 2 I thought I read the warranty board at customer service and I thought I read that it excluded Tablets from that.

I really hope that I was wrong.

I think what you may have seen on the board is the 90 day warranty.

Interesting that the iPad Prosumer is rumored to be released Nov 8th so they're either clearing out inventory of a soon to be discontinued item or they expect demand to drop.

Surface 3 4GB/128GB for $539 with edu discount is more useful.

...or these retailers have contracts with Apple to move "X" number of units per quarter and are falling behind their targets.

Staples had a sale on the Air 2 for 3 consecutive weeks (the last 3 weeks of the fiscal quarter)... started out at $50 off, $100, ending with $150.

Surface 3 4GB/128GB for $539 with edu discount is more useful.
Depending upon one's needs you are correct. As a tablet using it in touch mode, the Surface 3 falls a bit short but makes a terrific netbook.

Go to Target and have them price match the Staples deal ($479 for 64 GB). Then use the 10% discount off of the cartwheel app. This brings down the price to $431.

According to Target's website, price match cannot be combined with the cartwheel discount.

"Cartwheel offers and Target coupons cannot be combined with price match. Manufacturer coupons will be applied after a price match is made per Target’s coupon policy. Please review our Store Coupon Policy for additional details."
