After bottoming out at $280 throughout March, the 10.2-inch iPad is now back on sale at Amazon, Best Buy and elsewhere for $250. If you’ve been considering buying one — as a Father’s Day gift, graduation gift or just for around the house — now would be a good time to do it. 

Note, too, that Amazon is also offering the 128GB model for $329 in most colors. That’s $100 off the Apple Store price.

Amazon is also offering $50 off the iPad Mini and a modest discount on the new 2020 12.9-inch iPad Pro.   

Otherwise, great iPad deals are scarce. Though some retailers have cut the prices of previous-generation iPad Pros, by and large, the new 2020 Pro models, which give you more storage and better specs overall, remain the better value. We’ve got the best prices for each iPad below. 

Apple iPad discounts, compared

Model List price Best price (current) Best price (all-time)
10.2-inch iPad 2019 (32GB) $329 $250 $230
7.9-inch iPad Mini 2019 (64GB) $399 $349 $330
10.5-inch iPad Air 2019 (64GB) $499 $499 $400
11-inch iPad Pro 2020 (128GB) $799 $798 $750
11-inch iPad Pro 2018 (64GB) N/A $700 $649
12.9-inch iPad Pro 2020 (128GB) $999 $899 $947
12.9-inch iPad Pro 2018 (64GB) N/A $985 $849

Also, we’re focusing on the Wi-Fi versions of the iPad. Using LTE on a tablet is cool, but for most people it’s not worth the additional cost — for the device and the monthly service — especially when you can easily tether your phone for free. We update this list regularly.

It’s back: The $80 discount on the 32GB 10.2-inch iPad is available at Best Buy. This is the lowest price we’ve seen since the pandemic started. Read our 10.2-inch iPad review.

Discounts on the iPad Mini are exceedingly rare. But Amazon is currently selling it for $50 off, which brings the price down to $350. Read our iPad Mini 2019 review.


Though Amazon and others were previously offering a $50 break on the 2020 11-inch base model, those discounts have disappeared for now. Read our iPad Pro 2020 review.

Retailers are now stepping up with bigger discounts on the older 64GB model. Still, we’ve seen lower prices on this iPad — even before the new 2020 version was announced. Read our iPad Pro 2018 review.

It looks a whole lot like the previous model — but the 2020 iPad Pro gets a camera optimized for AR, Wi-Fi 6 and a storage bump for the entry-level model (from 64GB to 128GB). Amazon currently has the best price, $985. Read our 2020 iPad Pro review.
