    Does anybody have any tips on when Best Buy generally stocks up the online store with newly released Apple products? I have a 10% discount credit from my newly opened membership card and it would be a good opportunity to use it on the new iPad. I seen delivery times go from Wednesday to June 13. I think it's possible that they will have them available by then, but who knows. Any input is welcome.

    I'd like to know similar for Uk Argos or PCworld, not able to pay out full amount this month so would like to spread payments.

    They are giving $25 and $50 gift cards free with the purchase of the new iPad pro's. I'm store you can get them to also price match apple and give you an additional $20 for student discount too.

    WiFi only models are there when I looked a few minutes ago. Waiting for the LTE versions to show up.

    I was able to order a 12.9 space grey 256, with a $50 gift card, from Best Buy. Got the confirmation.

    Then tried to order a 10.5 and getting cart errors and when I try to check out I lose it from my cart.

    Wasn't sure which one I wanted and was going to order both. Looks like Best Buy might have blown through their initial allotment.

    They had these up on their site 2 hours ago. I've been trying to check out for two hours and always get the "Sorry, our system just had a hiccup. Please close this message and try again"

    This is so frustrating. I'm not sure if they already sold out their stock and the system isnt updating? Or if their system is just crashed? But been trying for hours and am getting nothing. Grrr

    Wow this really...blah. ****. Yeah so if you were able to check out with the other model, I'm sure they sold out then. What sucks is I've been trying for the 10.5 for HOURS...and its always been stuck on this message. This makes me so sad. :(

    The only models I've been able to checkout with are the 10.5 and 12.9 256GB space gray models. Everything else gives me an error.

    Good thing I saw thing thread. I cancelled my order through Apple and placed an order through Best Buy. No problem with order. Ordered 10.5, Space Grey, 256GB with $25 free BB Gift Card - I selected store pick up on June 13 Tuesday. However the Gift Card will be mailed to me for some reason.

    Yeah looks like Best Buy worked out their glitches. Already shipped my $50 GC.

    In the time waiting for their site to get working I pretty much decided I was keeping the 12.9, so I didn't bother ordering a 10.5. Going to be great for reading comics and drawing, which is what I'm really getting it for. Have a huge backpack with a 2016 Razer Blade laptop for work, so throwing in an extra 1.5lbs isn't a problem.

    Ordered an Anker Tempered Glass Screen protector for the 12.9, thinking about just using it caseless.

    I want to trade in my iPad Pro 9.7 to get the iPad Pro 10.5 but right now Apple is only giving 285 for it(Have it currently on craigslist so far no takers) I remember last yr when I bought the iPad within a month it was already 100 bucks cheaper so hoping that will be the case this time around and in case I cant sell it on craigslist I can break even on Best Buy and buy it from them

    Anyone recall how long it is usually before best buy lists the LTE versions? Not sure why they didn't just list all at once.

    B&H Photo has them with free shipping and no sales tax outside of NY/NJ. About $100 saved right there:)

    You sir are the MVP! I completely forgot about B&H. I wish they had the Smart Keyboard too. I guess I'll just order that from Apple.

    I pre-ordered through Best Buy too with store pick-up. The gift card will be mailed to my home too. I think that is the way that it's going to be for everyone.

    Does Best Buy only sell cellular models attached to specific carriers? I know there's only one model with all bands unlike the current iPhone, but none of these are carrier locked right? I plan to just swap the t-mobile sim from my Air2 into the 10.5" Pro. I'd love to pick up at Best Buy as I have some credits but I can go to BH if needed.
