Buy a Refurbished iPad Instead
Instead of buying a new 9.7-inch iPad for $329, you should look at refurbished iPad models.
Apple puts these in a new case, so they look brand new and they come with a full one year Apple warranty when you buy one direct from Apple.
The refurbished 9.7-inch iPad is $279 from Apple and you can also find some good deals on the iPad Pro if you prefer that feature set. The 9.7-inch iPad Pro is $469, which is a very good deal if you want support for the Apple Pencil and a slightly faster processor.
It's probably worth skipping the iPad Air 2 refurbished units that are not as well equipped as the 9.7-inch iPad and are more expensive.
