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. Of course, it’s difficult to know exactly where you can find those deals unless you’re looking around at all of the major retailers. But that’s what we’re doing each day when we hunt for deals, so let us help you out.
Below, we’ve listed each of the current iPads available for purchase. Most of the time, there’s some sort of discount happening on a new or refurbished model.

If there just isn’t a deal happening, we’ll mention how much the most recent sale price was for, so you’ll know when to take the plunge.
If you need a little help figuring out exactly which iPad is best for you, we’ve got you covered with a comparison post featuring all of the latest models.
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.
iPad mini (2019) deals
Apple released a new iPad mini in early 2019, carrying forth the same 7.9-inch display and design from previous iterations 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, making the starting price slightly more than last year’s models. The model that also supports LTE starts at $729.
iPad Pro (2020) deals
Apple’s 2020 iteration of the iPad Pro looks a lot like the one that came in 2018, 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 while bumping the screen size up to 12.9 inches raises the price to $1,000. Each size 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 on sale for $750 and the 256GB configuration for $849. If you are okay with spending $1,000 or more on this model, you can get 512GB of storage for $1,074 ($25 off) in silver at Amazon.
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 in space gray for $1,029 or the silver 512GB model for $1,229.
