    Target has kicked off the week with a discount on the Apple Watch Series 1 from 2016, offering the 38mm model for $179.99 and the 42mm model for $209.99. Each device is available in aluminum with a Sport Band in either White or Black.

    The Apple Watch Series 1 typically sells for $250 in 38mm and $280 in 42mm, so today's sale represents savings of $70 in both case sizes. Target's sale is a match for the same low prices seen during a pre-Black Friday sale at Macy's last year, as well during Target's own Black Friday sale. At the time of writing, all models are available to ship for free, and store pickup is also available depending on stock at your local Target.

    Another notable Apple device sale that went live today is at Staples and centers on the 9.7-inch iPad from 2017. In the sale, customers can get $30 off instantly and then an additional $40 off using coupon code "84761".

    This marks the 32GB 9.7-inch iPad down to $259.00, from $329.00, and the 128GB model down to $359.00, from $429.00. As a comparison, retailers like B&H Photo are selling the same models for $299.00 and $399.00, respectively. Color options for the 32GB include Space Gray, Gold, and Silver, while the 128GB is only available in Gold and Silver.

    Staples' sale ends on January 27 and is available on the retailer's website or by phone order. Additionally, only one coupon code can be used per customer. To apply the coupon code to an order, add one of the iPads to your cart, then click "Add/Edit Coupons" under the Order Summary section of your cart.

    These are insanely good deals. Wonder if they're not selling or just making room for more inventory.

    Really good iPad deal. I might do this to replace my 16gb iPad mini 4.

    Target has always been the first one to reduce inventory before other retailers. It's pretty smart.

    Disney Infinity had an inkling to go under 2 years ago? Target discounted all the toys to 50% off, then 75% off. Toys R Us is STILL trying to get rid of their Disney Infinity toys.

    I get the following message for the staples deal,

    “Coupon couldn't be redeemed:The entered coupon has already been used and is no longer valid. Please try another coupon.”

    The total is $299 not $259.

    Thanks, MacRumors! Ordered an iPad online from Staples to replace my wife's original one.

    I encountered the same error after entering the coupon code reported here and on the Staples web site. $259 is a great deal for the iPad, but $299 not so much and I would pass on it.

    Update: It seems the coupon code fails when checking out as guest. I created an account and logged in. Adding the coupon was accepted.

    I am considering upgrading my Series 0 to a Series 3 as the watch is quite slow to respond in many situations.

    I did the same, it is worth it. Series 3 is very snappy and has much better battery life.

    Nice deals on iPad.

    But who wants a 1st gen Apple Watch? Still sore they dropped the series 2 instead. Oh well... buy 1st gen with caution.

    The Series 1 is not the first generation Apple Watch (which is called Series 0). The Series 1 was launched at the same time as the Series 2. It has the same processor as the 2, but it is not waterproof and lacks GPS.

    I agree the naming convention is confusing. But, the Series 1 has pretty good internals, and Apple still sells it new.

    Reducing the inventory, I presume? I sense iPad 2018 is coming soon and they're trying to make room for the upcoming new version of the most affordable great tablet.

    $80 difference between a tiny watch (with a tiny battery, tiny screen, and wimpy processor) and an iPad (with a huge battery, advanced processor, large screen, cameras, etc.).

    The tech world can be real weird...

    Not seeing your correlation between an Apple Watch and iPad? Their entirely two different products and can't be compared with each other.

    And as Far as your comments applying to the Apple Watch with a tiny battery and tiny screen, what were you expecting? A smart watch is supposed to be small enough to be worn on your wrist, It's not meant to be obtrusively large.

    If my watch series 1 lasts 2 years, it costs $100 per year or less than it only costs $10 per month for haptic notifications (because I can‘t stand ringing or noises) and a hella handy timer that I use many times every single day. And I’m cheap.

    Yesterday morning the staples us website showed the price as $299 minus the $40 rebate for a total of $259 Now the price is $329 and no mention of the rebate.

    It seemed to last only a few hours at best, certainly not what the OP said.
