Walmart iPad mini 3 & iPad Air 2 Deals
Walmart isn’t able to cut the price of the new iPads to incredible levels, but there are some iPad mini 3 & iPad Air 2 deals available. The retailer also cuts the price of the original iPad mini.
- iPad mini – $239
- iPad mini 3 – $389
- iPad Air 2 – $489
These iPad mini 3 & iPad Air 2 deals aren’t huge, but if you want one today, $10 is still a nice discount you won’t find at Apple.
You can count on bigger deals and discounts during Black Friday, but that is a month away and filled with lines and craziness you won’t find now.
The other iPad mini 3 & iPad Air 2 deals that Walmart offers is a double trade-in deal on old iPads. The deal doubles the value of an old iPad up to a total of $200. This special runs from October 24th through November 16th.
- That means you’ll get double your trade-in value if your tablet is worth up to $100.
- If your tablet is worth between $100 — $199, you will receive $200.
- If your tablet is worth more than $200, you will receive the amount your tablet is valued at, but not double the trade-in.
You can check the value of your old iPad at the Walmart trade-in website.
