    I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this but for anyone considering buying an iPad Air or iPad mini Target has a great Black Friday deal coming up.

    With the purchase of any size iPad Air (base starting at $479) you receive a $100 Target gift card. With the purchase of the iPad Mini Retina you receive a $50 Target gift card. Pretty great deal if you're willing to deal with the crowds that night.

    This deal goes for all the iPads even the with the purchase of any iPad 2 you receive the $100 gift card. Hope this information helps someone.

    Uhm...you are aware sales will be all weekend, a few sites listed the offer at Target as the 28-30 for the gift cards, I'm trying to verify if the offer is only Friday.

    FYI many refer to it as black weekend, there is even sites that use the name black weekend sales and stores use the name black weekend.

    Even if it is, they will most likely be sold out.

    That'll be interesting since they open at 8pm Thanksgiving day...

    WalledMeGardn: why not just look though the Target ad?

    Assuming the iPad air is in stock online at Target, can't someone just buy it online and bring it in on Black Friday and return and repurchase it to get the lower price and $100 gift card? Seems like a way to avoid the crowds.

    That worked for me last year, however this year their price match policy changed:

    "Ad exclusions:

    Items advertised as limited time/limited supply/limited quantity.
    Black Friday ads (including adjusting prices for previously purchased items).
    Pricing or typographical errors."

    Well my curiosity got the better of me so I stopped in a Target store to find out. I spoke with the manager in customer service, and he told me that I would not be able to re-purchase an iPad that I had just returned. He said their process is that once they accept an item for return, its serial number gets deleted from their inventory and they physically can't complete the sale of the same item.

    Though the term is not common, sales dates sometimes include the weekend. In this case, I really do not think it matters. They will be gone within an hour of availability... probably way less.

    This is just as I thought. A returned item enters Target's returns processing system and can't be resold again. If never opened, the item may wind up back on the shelf or stock at a later date. But this strategy won't work, unfortunately.

    I just got a price adjustment on the mini I bought (32gb), and she had to return it twice to get it to adjust correctly.... Maybe even three times.

    But overall, you aren't going to get them to price match for something you bought early.

    It's BS. I did a return/rebuy twice recently. One on my iPad Air, because I took advantage or their iPad 1 $200 trade in, they did the return/rebuy so that I can use that $200 credit. Another was on a Nintendo 3DS XL, after I bought it Best Buy had it on sale for $30 less. Returned/rebought no problem. Serial number is scanned and printed on the sales receipt on game consoles too.

    They can but they won't, especially on Black Friday sale items.

    PS I had to ask while I was there, if I can return/rebuy for BF sale. Of course not. Plus they're handing out tickets for the iPad sale. No chance you'll get that deal unless you're the within the first few people inline.
