Last updated

Best Buy has issued a $200 price cut on Apple's iPad Air 5 ahead of Apple's iPad event on May 7. Pair it with the Apple Pencil 2 that's on sale for $79 for the ultimate Mother's Day gift.

Grab the 64GB WiFi iPad Air 5 for just $399.99 during the flash sale at Best Buy, reflecting a $200 discount off MSRP. At press time, the Starlight finish is eligible for the steep markdown, which delivers the lowest price on record for the lightweight tablet.

Inventory may be limited, so if you're looking for the best iPad Air deal ahead of the Apple event on May 7, this is a solid option. The 5th Generation Air has an M1 chip with a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina True Tone display. It also supports the 2nd Generation Apple Pencil that's heavily discounted as well (down to $79) at Best Buy.

With Mother's Day just two weeks away, the bundle makes an excellent gift idea for Mom without spending a fortune.

There are also plenty of iPads on sale at Amazon too, with prices dropping to as low as $249 for the 9th Generation and $349 for the 10th Generation.
