I'm sure this is a long shot...but, did you happen to take part in the Southwest Airlines 50,000 rapid rewards credit card offer? You can redeem those 50,000 points for $500 in Best Buy gift cards. That will at least get you a little closer to the purchase.

Apple officially puts some of their more popular products on sale one day a year: Black Friday.

It's never a huge discount but every dollar counts. Last year we bought my mom a new iPad2 on black friday and it was $40 or $50 off.

They tend to just do like gift cards or ridiculous bundles like add a car charger or a case with most of there products. Last year was 40-50$ off which really is nothing when you consider talk of the iPad 3 coming out a few months later. Unfornutate but I'm a suckered in apple fan user probably for life

I sell iOS devices for a living and I always recommend refurbished iPad 2 for kids. Saves mom and dad some cash while still running the new OS.

Sales are pretty rare directly from Apple (think Black Friday), and only bundles are common at third party retailers.

Not that it helps the OP, but this last summer, iPads were included in Apple's back to school special: buy an iPad and receive a $50 iTunes/App store gift card. -- Suzanne

We have purchased 5 or 6 refurbished products from apple and they area great way to save. They are virtually indistinguishable from new and they come with the 1 year warranty . Also if you have a Discover card use the shop Discover portal for 5% back on your purchase.
