Best deal on Apple's new iPad: Best Buy bundles in gift cards, more extras
Apple took the tech world by surprise a few days ago: rather than announcing the much rumored 10.5-inch iPad, it actually introduced the most affordable 9.7-inch iPad to date.
The 'new' iPad (Apple no longer calls it iPad Air) costs just $330 for the base 32 gig Wi-Fi-only model, which is already a great deal, but Best Buy makes it even sweeter: order the tablet now and you get a $25 gift card, and a free 6-month subscription for the Webroot Secure Anywhere protection app for iOS, Android, Mac and Windows.
The deal applies to all new iPad models, and you can get it straight away at the link right below:
Keep in mind, that Best Buy will also accept trade-ins that could further lower the price of this new iPad. If you go to a physical Best Buy store, you can trade in your old (and working) iPad mini 2, mini 3, mini 4, Air, Air 2 or Pro, and get a "minimum" $150 coupon.
Last, but not least, let us remind you that this new iPad is not exactly an upgrade over the iPad Air 2 and / or iPad Pro. It lacks the laminated display, LED camera flash, support for Apple's Pencil and Smart Keyboard, and a few other things. In fact, this new iPad looks practically exactly as the original iPad Air 1st gen. This does not make it any less of a great deal, but it's one thing to keep in mind.
