Early Cyber Monday iPad Deals Match Black Friday Deals

Target is continuing its Black Friday iPad discounts and gift card giveaway scheme through Cyber Monday, offering $75 and $100 cards with the purchase of select iPad Air, iPad mini and iPad 2 models. Those who camped out in line or dealt with the Black Friday mobs to score iPad deals may have wasted their efforts considering that anyone can just waltz into Target and get the same deals today, without the mad rush.

The retailer is offering a $20 discount on the 16GB iPad Air and throwing in a $100 Target gift card that can be used on future purchases. The gift card cannot be used towards the purchase of the iPad Air. Target is also offering a $100 gift card with the purchase of the $399 16GB iPad 2, though we no longer recommend buying the aging device.

UPDATE: Target’s Taken down this offer and readers are reporting the discount cards are no longer being offered in stores. We’ll keep our eyes out for more iPad sales. 

iPad Target Cyber Monday Deal

Target is offering $75 gift cards with the purchase of the iPad mini or the new iPad mini with Retina display, neither of which are discounted like the iPad Air. The original 16GB iPad mini carries the standard $299 price tag. The 16GB iPad mini with Retina display sells for $399.99.  This gift card promo brings the effective price of the iPad mini down to just $224, which is $5 cheaper than the Nexus 7.

The gift card offers aren’t just limited to the 16GB iPad models, extending to the higher capacity models. These gift card offers are excellent, so long as you apply it to something you’d normally buy. Of course you won’t save anything at all if you end up spending the gift card on iPad accessories or any other items you don’t really need.

While these pre-Cyber Monday deals are attractive, this isn’t the best iPad mini deal we’ve seen this week. Both Best Buy and Walmart were offering $100 gift cards on the iPad mini through Black Friday. Now that those deals are over, Target seems to have the best widely available offering on both the iPad Air and iPad mini.

Though the original iPad mini is an excellent value, those who can afford the  iPad mini with Retina display should buy the newer model. In our review of the iPad mini with Retina display, our reviewer called it “almost perfect.”

We don’t expect Apple to match this iPad deal on Cyber Monday. Apple held a one-day gift card giveaway event on Black Friday that we don’t expect it to repeat any time soon. That promotion offered gift cards of up to $75 with the purchase of select iPads.

    I’m looking online at target and it says sold out. Does it mean I can still get the $75 gift card at the store while I purchase the iPad mini?

    Sadly, not finding this deal online today. Called the store and they said the promotion ended yesterday. Fingers crossed we can find one tomorrow discounted!

    Just went to Target. The 16 gb iPad air is full price with no gift card. They didn’t even honor the online price of $479.

    Also went to Target today because of this article, trusting it’s credibility, and found it to be false. Take this article down please.

    I am a TGT employee. Target is NOT extending the Ipad gift card deals. Please update your information. We will however still price match the $20 off from online.

    I saw this deal online at target.com Sunday night. It said blackfriday deals good through cyber Monday. I went to the store Monday and they would not honor it. Called customer service and they played dumb. I think their website had incorrect info on Sunday and was updated later. A woman inline with me had the same issue with beats headphone. Keep your receipts. I think there will be more about this false advertising.
