Apple just last month unveiled its updated 10.2-inch iPad which now takes the entry-level spot in its iPad lineup. While the latest Apple products rarely get steep discounts, a new model usually means any previous-gen versions get discounted before being discontinued. In the case of the iPad, now's a great time to pick up Apple's 9.7-inch iPad with $129 off the 2018 model at Amazon. That discount applies to the 128GB Wi-Fi-only model with its price falling to $299. At that price, it currently costs less than the 32GB model at Amazon.

This iPad features a 9.7-inch Retina display with a 1.2MP front-facing FaceTime HD camera and an 8MP iSight camera on the back. It includes Touch ID and supports Apple Pay. These tablets are also equipped with an A10 Fusion chip and have a battery that can last for up to 10 hours before needing to be recharged. Cellular connectivity also means you can connect to the internet on the go. If you're worried about getting your screen all smudged up with your fingerprints, you might want to take a look at the Apple Pencil which works as a stylus and unlocks some new creative tools when used with the iPad.
The 9.7-inch model is now end-of-line discontinued and some models are already sold out at Amazon and other retailers meaning that these may be the last great deals we see on them. After they go out of stock, open-box and refurb deals are likely to be the best we get from here on out.
If you want to get the newest model, you can go for the 10.2-inch iPad and still make a saving with $29 off the regular price at Amazon right now. It keeps the A10 Fusion system-on-a-chip and support for the first-gen Apple Pencil but gains a Smart Connector for use with the Smart Keyboard in addition to its screen size bump. As the new iPad is almost exactly the same physical size as the 10.5-inch iPad Air, there are already a ton of great accessories on the market for it.
