iPad mini now as cheap as the Nexus 7 at Target

The iPad mini is now on sale for just 99 at Target

Target now has a sale for the iPad mini that brings the price of Apple's non-Retina 7.9-inch tablet to $199, or the equivalent of last year's Google Nexus 7 when that tablet debuted. The sale price reflects a $100 discount on the iPad mini and the slate is available in either slate grey or white configurations so as long as you choose the 16 GB model with WiFi only.

The iPad mini originally debuted at $329 but was reduced to $299 when Apple introduced the updated model with Retina Display. For comparison, the Retina Display resolution iPad mini in 16 GB WiFi configuration costs $399.

Target says that this is their lowest price yet for the tablet and that "quantities are limited." The retailer additionally isn't offering a rain check either, though if you live near an Apple Store, you likely can get Apple to match Target's sale price.

With the iPad mini with Retina Display and an anticipated tablet refresh this fall when Apple is expected to introduce new hardware that runs iOS 8 out of the box, consumers should likely wait if they want to see what Apple has planned. That said, $200 for an iPad mini is a good price for a good tablet.

Still think it's too much considering the tech in it is like 3 years old.

Way too expensive. Why would anyone buy that obsolete device at that price?

Brad Amero says:

Not a good deal considering how old the tech is.

Because they probably had like 5 in stock. The stores around me don't even carry them in store. Only online. Retina mini and iPad Air is only ones in store.

This might be a better deal overall. iPad 4 for $399 but you get a $100 walmart gift card.
So $299 for iPad 4 with Retinal.

I sincerely hope that Apple does away with 16gb configurations completely in October. 32 should be the new 16.

It was a one day sale for Sunday only.

I price matched at Staples and applied their $20 tablet code and got it for $179..$191.08 OTD.

Edit: Apparently some places are reporting the sale going all week, many many Targets are sold out though

Lt_Solorna says:

Already bought this one, wanted it to be the second generation Mini.

Snatched up some of these at a Target this morning for my kids to use on trips. In my area, used 16 gig WiFi iPad Minis are still going for $230-$250, so I feel like I got a good deal. Thanks for the info!
