With the purchase of an original iPad Air, Target is offering customers a $100 Target gift card. Target carries several original iPad Air models, with prices that start at $399 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only version.

The iPad mini 2, priced starting at $269 for a 16GB Wi-Fi only version, is also available with a free $80 Target gift card with purchase. On Thursday and Friday, Target will have similar deals on the iPad Air 2 and the iPad mini 4, Apple's more recent tablets.

Apple TV goes on sale tomorrow at Target. My buddy actually convinced them to honor the ATV sale for tomorrow, today. Though HHGregg has it on sale for $115 on their website right now for the 32G.

There are a few shops which I for some reason cannot shop at. Crazy as it may seem it's about the feeling in the stores.
The way they lay out things, the kinds of products they sell, pricing etc.

Target is one of them. So a $ 100 gift certificate doesn't do it for me.
Wouldn't know what to buy with that.

Even stuff on sale many times doesn't approach the real value of what I am willing to pay.

Bon-Ton, Saks Fifth Ave, Kohl, Best Buy, lately Sears to name a few.

As one gets older one realizes : I do not need more stuff!

I'm amazed that 4K tv's are so cheap already. But still no need to own one.
I agree, the deals are tempting, but with broadcasts not even in full 1080P yet.. there's no real reason to upgrade until the content is there.. and by then, the "deals" on these will look expensive 3-5 years from now.

Staples is offering it again on BF online ipad Mini 4 -$100 and some other things. I'll probably pick it up there.

Also I just bought a new iPad Mini 2 for my parents on Amazon for far less than that $269 tag at Target. That doesn't seem like a deal.

For what it's worth, I see $130 on the HHGregg web site. Target's price should eventually be $113.

HHGregg takes an additional 11% off through 5pm today. I just got the 32 GB Apple TV for $115.

Just bought the watch at Target. With $100 gift card thrown in. Lots of people getting Ipads. Unless they have more inventory coming, they will not have any on Friday.

No new toys for me this year. Got the new AppleTV already, waiting for the Apple Watch 2.0 next year and don't need any tablets, computers, TVs or other gadgets right now.

Gadget bliss! :D

I bought a 65" 4k SUHD TV recently and although there may not be much 4K content to watch at the moment, even normal TV looks amazing on it. My kitchen HD tv now looks crap in comparison.

Just got one the other day and I wouldn't give it up now after watching Netflix Originals in 4k. There's simply no comparison.

how's the data usage there? i'm guessing their 'Are you still watching?' timer prompt is going to be more and more useful (aka financially life-saving) as the days go on...

$400 for a 40+ inch 4K TV? If you don't have anything to watch in 4K, it'd still be a great deal for a quality tv. Seeing that all of the top tier phones can now record in 4K and many of the streaming services are coming out in 4K, I don' think it's a bad thing to look for one if you're in the market for a new TV.

I agree, I wish the PS4 had 4K content.. everything about that system is perfect to me..Can't believe they overlooked outputting games to 4K when they developed it.

$500 for a 49" 4K LG TV is incomprehensibly cheap. No wonder Apple didn't get into the TV hardware market.

Really? I just wish the PS4 had a SATA 3 connector and a CPU optimised enough to make use of an SSD. I think dreams of 4K should be put on the back burner in a 'next gen console', when it's recommended you run your games from a USB hard-drive for better performance. I think that's a bigger oversight IMO, absolutely no appreciation for longevity or futureproofing as games get more advanced.

Ah. I actually had one in my cart with the coupon applied, with same-day pickup at a local store, but before I could check out they changed it to not be purchasable online.

Cart now says, "Sorry this product cannot be purchased online. Please remove it from your cart before proceeding." And the item page now reads "out of stock" when it wasn't a moment ago.

I jumped on the Target deal, although I'll probably return it. Don't have much use for it. But I'm hoping playing with it for two weeks will convince me to keep it.

Seeing as how the PS4 can barely output games at 1080P, there's no way it could push games in 4K even if it had the capability of rendering in 4K.

If they had put the CPU/GPU capability into it to render 4K, it would have been too expensive.

I don't like shopping at Target stores either. IN my experience (wouldn't be national) but the stores near me, they don't treat you well. It is as though they are doing you a favor by letting you pay for stuff.

I don't mind their website, and the gift card can be used on just about anything you might need around the home, hand soap, toothpaste, pasta sauce, etc.

HOWEVER, I don't think their electronics return policy is too favorable, things are suppose to be sealed, so I would say you better want it positively if you buy it there.

I am tempted by the 16GB Mini 2 for $175 after gift card and red card savings because I've never had a mini and it would be fun to check out at that price, but probably wasteful, so I won't bite.
