UPDATE: Click here for iPad Air 2 deals.
It is uncommon for third party retailers to discount new Apple products on the day they're released, however Walmart, Best Buy and Radio Shack did offer the iPhone 5c for less than its SRP on its launch day. It looks like the same is happening with Apple's fifth-generation iPad. Walmart was the first retailer to announce that it would offer the iPad Air for $20 less than its SRP. If the iPhone 5c and iPhone 5s are any indication, other retailers should follow Walmart's lead and also offer the new Apple tablet at a discount.
UPDATE: The free product tracking service whohas.it has added an iPad Air Deal tracker. You can sign up for free deal alerts using the website or iOS app. The service is free and will send you an email or mobile alert whenever the iPad Air is on sale. You can also follow us @TheiPadGuide for future sale announcements or just keep checking this page.
