Target is giving away a $100 gift card with the purchase of any iPad Air or iPad mini with Retina display. This means you can nab a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad Air model for only $399, making this one of the best deals we have seen for Apple's latest tablet. The deal is available for all iPad models, including any storage size and cellular versions, through Target.com.
Remember, you will have to pay full price for the tablet then your physical gift card will be sent separately, but you can use the $100 credit towards any future Target purchase. There doesn't seem to be any other fine print attached to the sale, except on returns (see below). The offer expires on 7/12/2014 at 11:59pm PST.
It is safe to assume that other retailers will also be offering upcoming discounts on iPhones and iPads as we get closer to Apple's next-generation refresh. For example, Walmart recently discounted the iPhone 5c to $29 and the iPhone 5c to $99.
Apple is expected to announce a new iPhone alongside its rumored iWatch in September.
iPad return policy
If you want to return the item you purchased to a Target Store, you may either keep the gift card and just return the qualifying item (you will be refunded the amount of the qualifying item reduced by the amount of the gift card), or you can return the qualifying item and the gift card for a full refund using the online receipt. If you return the item you purchased by mail, keep the gift card; you will be refunded the amount of the qualifying item reduced by the amount of the gift card.
