If you have a tethering plan set up on your iPhone, you can use the personal hotspot on your iPhone to connect your iPad to the Internet via Bluetooth or WiFi.

I see. Suppose I dont have a tethering plan. Is my blue tooth option a clever way to get by that or am I under the wrong impression?

No, you need a tethering plan. Most carriers allow tethering at no extra charge, a few charge extra for it. You should contact your cellular carrier and enquire about it.
