Apple Watch Series 6
Apple Watch Series 6 models are available for some of their best prices ever right now. The lowest price is on the red 40mm version which is $70 off with 44mm and cellular models seeing discounts of up to $91.
The most affordable iPad in the sale is the iPad mini 3 from 2014 at $185, though it is the only device in the sale that does not support iPadOS 14 so it might not be the smartest buy for the long term. Just $15 more gets you the 9.7-inch iPad from the same year, for example, or $25 more getting you the iPad mini 4.
For something more recent that will likely last you the longest, check out the iPad models from the last few years like the 10.2-inch iPad, 10.5-inch iPad Air 3, and 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
With whichever iPad you view, it's worth comparing the price with the best iPad deals available for brand new models to ensure you're making the best choice. While the devices on sale at Woot are all previous-gen devices and a direct comparison isn't available, you can get an idea of which is worth snagging quite easily.
The 2020 iPad, for example, is available brand new at Amazon (opens in new tab) for just $299 which would be a wiser investment than the 2019 version for the same price at Woot. That being said, grabbing a refurb 10.5-inch iPad Pro at Woot for $370 might work better for you than the new 10.9-inch iPad Air starting at $600.
If you want the most affordable iPad possible, or your needs are more basic or you just want an easy-to-use tablet for a kid, one of the early-gen iPad models may still serve you well — especially if you can score one for under $200.
Woot generally charges $6 per order for shipping, though you can score free shipping on today's order by logging in with an Amazon Prime account before checking out.
