So hear me out-

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/global/college-student-deals/pcmcat276200050000.c?id=pcmcat276200050000

(dont need edu email,)

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/apple-9...ace-gray/4901907.p?id=bb4901907&skuId=4901907

(look at open box portion of page, ctrl+f if you dont see it)

$545 for open box, but right now the promo is $100 off any iPad Pro and it works for open box too

I had it in cart for $472 total, already have the 12.9 though.

NOTE- could also do geek squad certified open box for $563 and if your local store has it in stock, it'll be $463+tax, came to $502 out the door if I decide to do it and want it now,

Tempting though ,this is getting very close to my "whatever" point though to have both. Part of me wants to wait for a $50 off deal, open box to drop more, and maybe snag when that comes if it does since window for coupon is until mid July, or maybe not at all since I have an iPad

Anyways, wanted to point this out for anyone looking for a deal :D

Any place but here or there....
Interesting. I was looking at open box iPad Mini 4s earlier today (so tempting), but I'll wait because I am working on changing my concentration at university and I'm not sure what portable that will mean for me (probably a laptop.)

100% go For it. When you arrive inspect the open box iPad Pro for any Blemishes or scratches and you get an extra 10% off.

Explain this 10% off thing ,not following

I hope someone hops on this deal :) seems like as good a time as ever to pull the trigger if you were waiting,

If I didn't have 12.9 I would be all over it

Pardon my butt in: It sounds to me if you find any scratches or blemishes on the iPP, then it is not in the condition Best Buy described and they'll give you an extra 10% off if you politely mention that.

Interesting. That makes it even better deal

Sounds like your mileage may vary on that though?

I really dig my 12.9 wouldn't give it up

I have a feeling both 12.9 and 9.7 people will get hosed in the fall so getting a good deal is imperative

9.7 more so, may have iPad 3 length lifecycle. Purposefully held back with 2gb

What are they going to do? Leave a9x until spring next year to get next gen of both siZes? Or more like holidays?

Tempting but I got a nice deal on a 64GG iPad Air 2 a couple of months ago. I don't think I could survive with only 32GB anymore

If I could've lived with only 32gb, I would've gotten this one. But my 128gb 9.7 iPP was only $560 open box at best buy which was a great deal imo.

Great price. I got mine for $400 on Craigslist (from an Apple Store employee, so well maintained) and I thought that was the deal of a century.

I am having an absolutely awful swappa experience concerning the purchase of an ipad pro 9.7 at the moment. The seller won't ship the item. I have contact swappa and it is not helping. I am going to have to contact paypal.
