Update: New iPad Air 2 deals bring more Black Friday and Cyber Monday cheer thanks to retailers like Best Buy, Walmart and Target. Check them out below.
Apple's tablet sales are down, which is great news because that means the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 are already on sale one month after launch.
The best deals begin at midnight tomorrow, which happens to be November 28 this year. But you don't have to wait until Black Friday to find out how much you'll save.
Retailers like Best Buy, Walmart and Target have already revealed their iPad discounts for the new models as well as older ones. You can even find some offers on Amazon.
We'll be continually updating this iPad deals list on Black Friday and Cyber Monday to give you the 411 on Apple's 7.9-inch and 9.7-inch tablets, so keep checking back for more.
The iPad Air 2 is going to be on sale at Best Buy starting on Black Friday, giving you a chance to nab the new tablet and save $100 in the process.
It'll cost $400 for the iPad Air 2 16GB model and the discount applies to the 64GB and 128GB models that are $500 and $600, respectively. That's not bad for having just launched.
The iPad mini 3 receives a similar price drop across all sizes and colors on Black Friday. It'll be $75 and start with 16GB costing $325, according to Best Buy's official flyer.
Just be aware that the retailer's in-store hours begin on Thursday, Thanksgiving day at 5 p.m. and its early Black Friday iPad deals are good while supplies lasts.
As per usual, Walmart "rolling back" its iPad sales by one generation. Its deep discounts this year apply to the older iPad Air, not the iPad Air 2.
But the prices are fairly good if you're in need of a pencil-thin tablet. The iPad Air with 16GB will cost $397 and with a $100 gift card to the store.
No, you don't get Touch ID, but at other retailers, the same last-generation Apple tablet costs $400 and comes with no gift card. This is an excellent deal for the original iPad Air.
Target's iPad prices haven't budged, but the new models come with store gift cards that are hard to pass up, especially for the tempting iPad Air 2.
Apple's 9.7-inch flagship model costs the normal $500, yet it'll feel more like it costs $360 at Target thanks to a $140 gift card. Put that towards the rest of your shopping.
Target had the best iPad Air deals in stores and online last year, and its availability was plentiful right on through Black Friday. It may repeat that high discount and high inventory for iPad Air 2.
All other iPad models get the gift card treatment to the tune of $100 for the iPad mini 3, iPad mini 2 and iPad Air. The first iPad mini without a Retina display still nets you $60.
You may have noticed that Amazon doesn't sell iPad tablets. Instead, it fulfills the orders from third-party retailers.
Monitoring Amazon for iPad deals isn't such a bad idea over Black Friday and Cyber Monday. These non-official Apple sellers are going to be competing for your business.
Plus, buying an iPad fulfilled by Amazon means that it's eligible for that clutch two-day shipping, just in case you wait until the last second. No one will be the wiser.
Expect more iPad deals to trickle out from additional retailers. This is just the beginning.
The Apple Store, for example, updates its website with discounts when the clock strikes 12 a.m. and Thanksgiving officially turns into Black Friday. We'll be updating this page with that information.
Last year it was just gift cards, but we'll see what's on sale everywhere come Black Friday and Cyber Monday now through December 1.
