Where to Buy an iPad 3 (Hint: Not Apple)

    • Just FYI … Apple almost always excludes iPads, etc. from any rebate programs, and that limitation is specified at those sites.

    • Apple can’t stop a retailer from discounting a product. Any rebate exclusions are only at an aapl store.

    • Buying it from an online store (without local presence) typically saves much more.

      For example, Macmall doesn’t charge tax for most states.. which leads to about an 8.25% savings just on tax (atleast for us folks living in texas), add a 2.5% cashback from ebates, and maybe a 1-2% cashback from your creditcard company.. and you have a good 11-12% discount overall (compared to buying in a local store).

    • what, we can’t keep junk off these blogs??? “survey of the world” and “mimiy”…..wow. what crap.

    • Ebates will not give cash back for the new ipad. Neither will Discover or Citi. I know because I checked.

    • WHY can’t YOU keep the junk off these blogs? “survey of the world” and “mimiy?”

    • Kelli sorry to have to say this…your articles are consistently next to useless.

    • FYI it’s not called an iPad 3.. Did they hire you guys directly out of high school or did you not graduate? This site is almost as bad as the yahoo tabloids..
      yahoo = smart money < cnn money < cnn < npr < bbc < ??? only ones that i've spent extensive amounts of time on.. anyone chime in please

    • Something like the price will drop 100.00$ in 6 months would be nice. (makes ya wonder)

    • You can try combining a cashback rebate with discount giftcards.
      Check out http://www.savingcashback.com/cashback/best-buy for more details. If you combine the two, you can save up to 10% at Best Buy.

    • Target does not offer a 45 day return. If you OPEN the item and it is not defective, then you cannot just walk in and return the ipad. The site now clearly states 30 day returns on tablets UNOPENED. At least apple will take the exchange within 14 days, no question.
