Staples today announced that it has begun accepting iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 pre-orders on its website, allowing customers to place early orders for a Wi-Fi only iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3.

Staples will also be accepting in-store pre-orders for Apple's new tablets beginning on Saturday, October 25. The retailer expects the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 3 to be available in Staples stores on Monday, October 27 at the earliest, but exact timing of in-store availability remains unknown.

In addition to accepting pre-orders for the new iPads, Staples is also offering trade-ins for old devices, giving eCash cards that can be used towards the purchase of a new device. Staples' trade-in deals aren't quite as good as those available on other sites, so it may be worthwhile looking into other options.

Several other retailers, including Apple, Best Buy, Target, and more, are also offering pre-orders of the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3. Some early orders from Apple have begun shipping out, but it is still unclear when the devices will be purchasable in stores.

That's funny. I just came from a news article talking about how Staple's was involved in a credit card breach.

They started Pre-Orders on Friday/Sat. Ordered mine early Fri. AM.

Would love to know shipping information, if you can press them on it. I can't seem to get an answer from Support CSR's. I've been told Friday of this week, or by 11/4 at the latest.
