iPad 2 Deals: Where to Buy it for Less (Or Maybe FREE With Coupons???)
PCWorld ^ | March 9, 2012 | Ian Paul

Posted on 03/10/2012 4:33:30 AM PST by PJ-Comix

An upgrade to a product line usually brings bargains for the older models, and some iPad shoppers are watching for the iPad 2 deals to break. But you don't have to wait until the third-generation iPad ships on March 16 find a deal on an iPad 2. Major national retailers, including Apple itself, have already slashed prices on last year's Apple tablet.

Apple recently implemented the new pricing and other retailers quickly followed suit, but not every retailer has jumped on the iPad 2 price cut bandwagon. Here's where you can snap up Apple's 2011 iPad for less than its original $499 price tag.

Dare I hope to get an iPad2 for FREE via coupons? Impossible, you say? Well, right now I am typing on a Compaq Presario laptop which I got for FREE two years ago via coupons. I would love to get an iPad2 for FREE via coupons for two reasons. 1. To score a FREE iPad. 2. Just to have bragging rights that I scored an iPad2 for FREE.

It won't be easy to score an iPad2 for FREE but it CAN be done. The coupon planets just have to be in the correct alignment just as they were when I scored my FREE laptop.

Be very wary of scams and ripoffs!
The New iPad will have a lot of grifters trying to cash in :-/

If I do get my iPad2 for FREE via coupons, I will be getting it ONLY at an established outlet...just like I got my FREE Compaq Presario laptop.

My oldest son gets his iPads for free. He sells the previous model on eBay a few weeks before the new one is announced, for cost or more, every time.

Once it’s announced they don’t go for as much.

I actually came close to the possibility of scoring an iPad2 and a lot of other stuff for FREE but since the coupons involved were Internet Printout coupons, Walmart gave me a hard time. One manager even accused me of photocopying the coupons and wouldn’t listen when I explained they were PRINTOUTS which are legit.

That’s horrible! They issued the coupons.

Did you get one? You can have mine for half price when my new one comes.

LePan TC970.

I got my husband and father-in-law each one for Christmas. They love theirs! Read the reviews. Unknown company, but good product. Does most of what the iPad does for less than half the price. The new, upgraded version has come out since then. Costs more, but still a lot less than the iPad.

If anyone who’s never had one gets a chance to score an Ipad 2 for cheap - jump on it. I got one about 8 months ago and I can’t believe how much use I get out of it, especially in my work. I have incorporated so much of it into my practice that it really messes me up when I forget to take it to the office because I left it charging up at home. A definite game changer.

I have a Nook Color I bought a while back. I've turned it into an Android tablet with the N2ACard micro SD card. I bought a 16Gb card which goes into the slot on the Nook Color. It provides a dual-boot option. Touch the screen when the dual-boot option comes up to go into the Nook Color system. Or let it run for a couple seconds and it goes into the Android system by default. Since the Android system runs off the card, it doesn't alter the Nook operating system so there's no warranty issue. I love it. Sure, it wasn't free, but it is a good low-cost alternative to tablets.

I just purchased an October 2006 HP laptop with AMD Turion 64, 2GB RAM, running Windows 7 Professional, very well, with Office 2007, and all software licenses, for $175. I will use it, as is, for another two years.

If I decide not to pay my mortgage, I might invest in an iPad.

I'm seeing iPads everywhere, now. We're remodeling our kitchen, and just had a granite store rep come and take measurements for 5 pieces of granite slabs we're having installed. The rep entered all the information on an iPad 2, then took multiple pictures of the kitchen via the camera on the iPad, with closeups of detail work areas. The information gets passed to the CNC milling machine operators who cut and drill holes, then passed on to the installers so the work is done as the customer wanted. Rep says the iPad makes the flow of information seamless.
