Target gives $100 gift card to those who purchase the Apple iPad Air
Those buying Apple's flagship tablet from Target, will receive a $100 gift card from the retailer. Prices for the slate start as low as $499 for the Wi-Fi only 16GB version of the iPad Air. The 32GB model is priced at $599, the 64GB model is $699 and $799 will buy you the 128GB slate. If you want an iPad Air with cellular connectivity, pricing starts at $629 (16GB), $729 (32GB) and $829 (64GB). Those prices do not include the free gift card.
You could decide to wait for the Apple iPad Air 2 to launch. The tablet will be unveiled on October 16th and probably will be released not too long afterward. With a thinner footprint and some changes made to the volume and power buttons, the iPad Air 2 will feature an Apple A8 chip under the hood along with 2GB of RAM, twice the amount found on the iPad Air. The home button will include the embedded Touch ID fingerprint scanner, and Apple Pay will be included. Because no NFC connectivity is available with the iPad Air 2, Apple's new mobile payment service will only be available for online purchases including apps. The rear camera gets a bump to 8MP and there is talk about an upgrade to the front-facing FaceTime camera as well.
Looking to save some money and pick up a flagship tablet at the same time? Visit your local Target store, or visit the website, and pick up the Apple iPad Air. You'll be buying the top-shelf tablet you crave, and also get that $100 Target gift card you want.
