Best Buy again slashes Apple's iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 prices by $50-$100 in second holiday sale

article thumbnail

Best Buy on Sunday kicked off a second leg of extremely aggressive discounts on Apple's latest iPads, offering $50 instant discounts on all iPad Air 2 models and between $50 and $100 off all iPad mini 3 models.

The latest discounts, which follow on the heels of two similar Black Friday sales (1, 2), are not expected to last long, as Best Buy has quickly run out of stock of iPads in a matter of hours during earlier sales, especially the iPad Air 2s.

Alternatively, AppleInsider partner MacMall is also offering discounts on new iPad Air 2 purchases that may actually net customers a better deal, as the authorized reseller does not collect tax from orders in 41 U.S. states.

For example, MacMall is offering the entry-level 16GB Wi-Fi iPad Air 2 for $479.99. But at a sales tax rate of 7 percent, users would save $54 over the regular out-the-door cost, netting a slightly greater savings over Best Buy. MacMall only charges sales tax on orders sent to CA, CO, GA, IL, MN, NC, NY, TN, and WI.

The full list of iPad Air 2 prices available from both Best Buy and MacMall follows. Below are the current sale prices, all of which are the current lowest prices according to our iPad Price Guide:
