We know that Apple has always been reluctant to let retailers drop prices on its products at launch, so it was a surprise when Walmart discounted the iPad Air by $2, selling it for $479. Now, according to 9to5Mac, Staples, Best Buy, and Target are price-matching Walmartâ€™s price of $479.
However, apparently Apple and Best Buy are still charging the suggested $499 price tag for the Wi-Fi only 16GB iPad Air through their online stores. To be able to buy the entry-level iPad Air for $20 less than its initial price, youâ€™ll have to buy it from one of Appleâ€™s and BestBuyâ€™s physical retail locations. You wonâ€™t have to do that with Walmart, Staples or Target.
According to some commenters from the same 9to5Mac publication, it seems that there might be some issues at some Apple Store location trying to get the $20 discount.
Are you planning on getting the low-entry iPad Air to make use of the discount?
