More Black Friday Deals on iPhone and iPad

If you're in the market for a new iPhone or iPad, Black Friday (Nov. 29) is the day to take the plunge. Actually, many of the great deals start as early as Nov. 28 and continue through the weekend. In a previous post I mentioned two websites tracking Black Friday deals and summarized the best deals. I wanted to also point you to the continuously updated comprehensive roundup posted on MacRumors. Plus, they summarize the best deals in a chart at the top of the page. Some remarkable deals are to be had: iPad Air for $379 at Target, iPad mini (first generation) for $199 at Walmart, iPad 2 for $299 at Target, and iPhone 5s for $114 and iPhone 5c for $0 at Walmart. MacRumors also offers shopping tips, such as which online retailers charge local sales tax in which states.

In addition, eBay has posted their Black Friday deals, a convenient listing of which can be found on The Verge. The deals are available at specific times on specific days, and include the first-generation iPad mini for $239, the fourth-generation iPad for $399, and the iPad Air for $469.

Also, note that Walmart will match any Black Friday deal. You can read more on Techno Buffalo. According to the post, they started this price matching on Nov. 22. This is amazing. You can get Black Friday deals early without having to fight Black Friday crowds on Nov. 29.

If you're interested in tablet computers, but not necessarily the iPad, Latin Times is tracking the best Black Friday deals on the most popular tablets.
