Hidden Amazon deal saves you $100 on Apple’s 7th-gen iPad

  • Last week, Amazon was running some of the best Apple iPad deals we’ve ever seen, with huge $100 discounts that slashed prices to all-time lows.
  • The bad news is that most of the models with the deepest discounts are now sold out, which is a shame since the 7th-generation iPad is Apple’s fastest and sleekest entry-level iPads ever.
  • What you might not realize, however, is that there’s still a hidden deal on the single best-selling iPad model that will save you $100 thanks to an extra $65 discount that gets applied at checkout.

When it comes to tablets, Amazon always seems to promote its own Fire tablet devices much more than any other tablets on its website. It’s not exactly a mystery why that would be the case, of course, and there’s nothing wrong with Amazon promoting its own devices. All three Fire tablets offer a tremendous value, with prices starting at just $49.99 even when they’re not on sale with any discounts. If you’re in the market for a tablet and your main concern is spending as little as possible, a Fire tablet is definitely the way to go.

Fire tablets are indeed fantastic but even at those rock bottom prices, and even with all of Amazon’s promotion, Amazon’s tablets still aren’t the best-selling models out there. No, that honor goes to the 7th-generation iPad, the cheapest version of which costs nearly seven times as much as Amazon’s most affordable tablet at its full retail price of $329. Of course, you get superior build quality, better performance, and iOS when you buy the iPad, and that’s why so many people are happy to spend the extra cash. If you pick one up today, however, you won’t spend anywhere near full retail.

Most SKUs of Apple’s 7th-Generation iPad tablet have been out of stock at Amazon for so long because they’re among the best-selling products in Amazon’s electronics category. When they were in stock, a few different sizes and color options were available with slight discounts. Last week, however, most iPad models appeared back in stock with discounts up to $100! Needless to say, they flew off the shelves with discounts that deep, and most of them are out of stock once again. There are two best-selling SKUs that are still available though, and the single most popular one now has a hidden discount that you won’t want to miss.

Apple iPad (10.2-inch, Wi-Fi, 32GB) - Silver (Previous Model) Price:$279.99 Buy Now Available from Amazon, BGR may receive a commission

First off, you’ll find that the 10.2-inch iPad is somehow still in stock in silver with 32GB. What’s more, it has a great $50 discount that cuts your cost to just $249.99. You know you’re definitely getting a good deal anytime you can score an entry-level iPad for under $300.

Before you buy that model though, you should definitely consider getting the upgraded model with more storage. The 128GB iPad is back in stock right now in Space Gray and it normally sells for $429, which is more than fair. Head over to the Amazon page right now though, and you’ll see it on sale for $395. A $34 discount is nice and all, but it’s not really enough to move the needle. What you might not notice, however, is that there’s a special deal that slashes an extra $65.01 off the price at checkout! That cuts your final cost to just $329.99, matching this popular model’s lowest price of all time. It’ll definitely sell out soon though, so you’ll need to hurry or you could miss out.
