Apple iPad bargains for Black Friday 2019
Apple's super-popular iPad can be yours for less this Black Friday.
If you're after a new tablet, Apple's iPad line remains the pick of the bunch -- fruit pun not intended -- thanks to Apple's focus on tablet-specific apps and a range of devices to suit every budget and need, from the entry level Apple iPad, the compact Apple iPad Mini, lightweight Apple iPad Air or high-powered Apple iPad Pro.
However, they're still Apple devices, and that means that they can be pricey, and discounts can be exceptionally hard to come by.
However, during the Black Friday sales period, it's entirely possible to save on the regular asking price of an iPad. What you do with the money you save is of course entirely up to you, but if you want to save even more, you should check out the entire range of Black Friday deals on the Finder Black Friday deals hub.
Note: Deals can sell out at any time.
Best Apple iPad Black Friday deals
- As it's doing with its Black Friday iPhone deals, Apple's not actually offering a discount per se with iPad orders during the Black Friday sales period. Instead, what you get is an Apple gift voucher to spend on other Apple products and services. Buy an Apple iPad Mini or Apple iPad Air and you'll score an $80 gift card. Buy an iPad Pro, and the gift card bounty bounces up to $160, which is an excellent effective saving.
- If you just want this year's Apple iPad, Big W has the best deal we've spotted, with the 32GB model selling for $466, a decent slice off Apple's regular $529 asking price.
- Harvey Norman also has the 7th generation 32GB Apple iPad at ever so slightly more than Big W. As in a dollar more, because it'll charge $467 for it.
- JB Hi-Fi is also discounting the 7th Generation Apple iPad 32GB at $479, still a bit cheaper than Apple's regular asking price, or the 128GB model at $599, a slightly better percentage discount.
- If you're happy with a refurbished iPad Air, Kogan's selling a 16GB model for just $299. That's a super-cheap way to get an iPad, but it's worth bearing in mind this is the much older model of the iPad Air running on the A7 processor, not the newer model on an A12 bionic processor.
