Whether or not the new iPad is worth the buy is not the point of this thread. The purpose of this thread is to find the best deal. I'll be purchasing the new iPad at The New iPad | PowerMax. It is listed at $499.00. There is a $10 off $100 coupon for those who join their mailing list. This makes their new iPad $489.00. I recently received a credit card that will give me $200 cash back on $500 of purchases within three months. I'll be using that credit card to purchase the iPad along with other purchases to bring my total to $500 making my iPad $289.00. The retailer charges no tax and free shipping, saving approximately $50 depending on where you live.
