PM'd to Bestbuy last time someone had it at this price. This is my 3rd Ipad air. I have owned all three generations and am completely satisfied with this device.Since everyone charges tax now, its a no brainer to PM to BB and then put it on BB card to grab another 6%. Not only that, BB is one of the few stores that when you spend reward bucks they reduce the tax accordingly. That makes your points worth another 8-10%.

Unless you picked up some BB giftcards at a discount the math is a bit confusing for most that pay 6-8% sales tax whereas AAFES = no sales tax. Price match takes time which is also money...

PM strategy is useful for those who aren't qualified to shop at aafes.

Wasn't trying to draw some comparison to the military. tax is 9% where I live. One suburb is 10.5%. BB PM is one of the simplest I have ever experienced. Just letting people know this price is available now outside of just the PX.

For that money it still doesn't take 4k videos, that's not encouraging
Have my 2018 iPad and haven't shopped around for one.
Damn Apple puts only 4K on a iPad Pro and rest all gets only till 1080p

I don't believe Best Buy PMs the military exchanges because they are a limited access store. BB only PMs actual competitors and all BB customers aren't AAFES customers.

What's the point of having 256gb but not being able to take 4k video?

Tried - they're not PM
"At Best Buy, we price match when the other retailer has a physical store available. Since the retailer that you're referring to doesn't have one within 25 miles (regional), we will not be able to price match."

If they put the Pro features on the lesser models, who would buy the Pro?

And who shoots video with an iPad ?!

Please forgive my ignorance - I'm trying to order the right thing - but I can't tell what the difference is at all between the one posted and this one $10 cheaper?
https://www.shopmyexchange.com/ap...fi/1864369
Is it an earlier model? Description seems to say A12 chip etc. Just want to make sure I'm getting the latest model? Thanks.

Huge difference they made typo that 256gb has to display as 64 gb. Just control + f to find 64gb then you will see what i mean. The spec for that ipad is 64 gb period.

The bigger issue for me would be the use of Apple Pencil 1, lack of ProMotion display and still having the lightning port.

For about $100 more you can get the 2018 IPad Pro, but at 64GB.
