Apple’s iPad Air is likely a mere month or so away from getting a sequel, and although odds are the sixth-gen 9.7 incher won’t revolutionize anything, it’s probably smart to hold off until the follow-up is official if you’re considering the purchase of a large iPad.
Unless some high-profile retailer can cut you a deal that’s just too good to turn down. Enter Staples, which currently charges as little as $399 for an iPad Air. A new, untouched model with 16 GB of storage and Wi-Fi connectivity.
Hard to say no when the same exact iPad costs $500 via other sellers, and around $440 on Amazon. Want moar storage? No problem, Staples shaves 100 clams off the 32, 64 and 128 GB iPad Airs too, bringing their respective price points down to $499, $599 and $699.
The offer is valid through August 16, and all you need to do to take advantage of it is enter the 79449 coupon code before checkout. Not a big iFan? Maybe want something with a more distinguished air of productivity?
Then the same coupon can be used towards the purchase of tablets, laptops, desktops and all-in-one PCs regularly priced $499 and up. You’ll be getting $100 off on any of these babies, and top choices include Samsung’s 32 GB Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 (discounted to $550), Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 ($699 and up), and Toshiba Satellite C55 notebooks, available for as little as $350. It’s like a quieter, more civilized, early Black Friday.
