Deals on Apple’s iPad are more common than you might think. Whether you’re after the affordable iPad, the high-end iPad Pro, or something in between like the iPad Air or iPad Mini, there’s usually some sort of price cut happening somewhere.

But that’s what we’re doing each day when we hunt for deals, so let us help you out.

iPad (2020) deals
This is Apple’s most affordable iPad, usually costing $329 for the model with 32GB of storage or $429 for the 128GB model. Each has a 10.2-inch display and features the A12 Bionic processor, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, and a Smart Connector for connecting a Smart Keyboard.
You can currently get the base iPad with 32GB of storage for $299 at Amazon and Walmart. If you need more storage, Walmart has the 128GB configuration available for $395 in space gray and gold; that’s $34 off its usual retail price of $429.
iPad mini (2019) deals
Apple released a new iPad mini in early 2019, equipped with the same 7.9-inch display and design as previous iterations, but with refreshed internal specs. It has the A12 Bionic processor found in the base iPad, along with Wi-Fi support. Apple makes a 64GB and 256GB model of the iPad mini, with prices set at $400 and $500 respectively. If you want LTE connectivity, the starting price is $530.
iPad Air (2020) deals
The 2020 iPad Air has a slightly larger 10.9-inch display compared to last year’s 10.5-inch display, and features thinner bezels around the display. It has relocated the Touch ID fingerprint sensor to the power button, located on the top of the device.
Like its predecessor, the fourth-gen iPad Air model comes in 64GB or 256GB storage configurations. The Wi-Fi models start at $599 and $749 respectively, making the starting price slightly more than last year’s models. The model that supports LTE starts at $729.
Amazon currently has the fourth-gen iPad Air 64GB model with Wi-Fi for $559, with all the colors available at a discounted price. Walmart is price-matching the e-commerce site, with all the 64GB color variants on sale for $559 each.
iPad Pro (2020) deals
Apple’s 2020 iteration of the iPad Pro looks a lot like the 2018 model, aside from its dual-lens rear camera array. Unlike the less expensive iPad models, the iPad Pro ditches the headphone jack and uses a USB-C port instead of a Lightning port. It also has Face ID to help you unlock the tablet instead of relying on the Touch ID fingerprint sensor; it also has a high refresh display. In fact, the iPad Pro has the most stacked spec sheet of Apple’s entire iPad lineup, which comes at a price.
The 11-inch model with 128GB of storage starts at $800; bumping the screen size up to 12.9 inches raises the price to $1,000. Each model supports up to 1TB of storage, with the top-spec models going for $1,299 (11-inch) and $1,499 (12.9-inch).
If you are looking to pick up the 11-inch model at a discounted price, Amazon has the 128GB model with Wi-Fi in silver marked down to $759.05 (with a coupon applied) and the 256GB configuration as low as $845. If you are okay with spending $1,000 or more, you can get 512GB of storage for as low as $1,040 at Amazon.
Of course, if you have money to spend and want a ton of storage, you can buy the 11-inch 1TB configuration in space gray for only $1,230; that’s $69 off its usual retail price of $1,299.
If you want a slightly bigger screen, Amazon has the 12.9-inch iPad Pro on sale starting at $949 for the base model, which includes 128GB of storage. If you need more storage, you can get the 256GB model for $999 or you can buy the 512GB for $1,224 in space gray or for $1,225 in silver.
