What would Black Friday be without a mad dash for the latest electronics? If you’re on the hunt for an iPad, you’re in luck—a handful of the best Black Friday deals on iPads and Apple accessories are already happening right now. That being said, many retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, and Jet are doing it the old-fashioned way and not launching their iPad sales until Thanksgiving. Read on to see what you can buy now, and which sales to wait for:
The Best Black Friday 2018 iPad deals available now:
iPad 32GB (9.7-inch, 2017)—$299 at Jet (Save $30): The 2017 9.7-inch iPad is a great value even at the retail price of $329—on sale, it’s almost unbeatable. With Apple Pencil compatibility, a hi-res Retina screen, and a processor that’s plenty fast for most uses, this iPad is extremely giftable. Jet has it for $299 right now, and the price will drop even further to $249 November 21 (the day before Thanksgiving). This deal will also be available at Walmart starting on Black Friday.
Refurbished 9.7-inch iPad Pro Wi-Fi 32GB—$469 at Apple (Save $80): If you like iPads but wish they could handle the workload of a full laptop, the iPad Pro is a great bet. It’s extremely fast and flexible, and it has an amazing battery life. This 32GB model doesn’t have much storage, but you’re saving a ton. And while refurbished models can sometimes be tricky, this direct-from-Apple one is a safe bet.
Apple Geek Squad Certified Refurbished AirPods—$119 at Best Buy (Save $40): Apple’s Airpods rarely see much of a discount from their retail price of $159, but the super popular wireless headphones will be on sale a few places for Black Friday. If you don’t mind going refurbished, they’re available even cheaper now from Best Buy—and they’re an essential accessory for any iPad you purchase.
If you’re willing to wait for Black Friday proper, some of the best iPad deals go live then, including a $100 price drop on the latest 128GB iPad at Best Buy. Keep in mind that many retailers will be offering simultaneous and similar sales:
