Retailers’ Pre-Black Friday Deals on iPad 2

Black Friday is rapidly approaching, but you don’t have to wait for the iPad 2 deals to roll around. You need go no further than the local Target or Walmart for evidence of that, as retailers have already started offering incentives to give them your hard-earned cash in exchange for some of the best Apple iPad products. You can get deals on the iPad 2 and iPod touch, along with some of the cooler iOS device accessories.

Target has a big deal right now, offering a $40 Target gift card with the purchase of an iPad 2. The company is also offering a $20 gift card with an iPod Touch purchase, and a $15 gift card for an iPod Nano purchase. Target customers with a Target REDCard can knock another 5% off of the price, dropping the base iPad model down to a mere $436, plus tax. Check your local store listings for more information, as this is not an online deal.

Walmart has also set up an iPad 2 bundle deal that offers an iPad 2 at regular price ($499 for the base 16GB Wi-Fi model) plus a free 4-port USB wall charger, a device that allows several USB cords to be plugged in to a single outlet.

Customers can also opt to skip the USB charger and choose a discounted Smart Cover instead. With the deal, the polyurethane covers are available for an additional $20, and the leather covers are available for an extra $50. That’s about $20 off the price of an iPad plus a Smart Cover if you were paying full retail price. Customers will also receive a $5 VUDU movie credit when purchasing an iPad 2 on Walmart’s website.

More iPad Black Friday deals are sure to come, and we’ll be watching for them. But when it comes to holiday shopping, there’s no better time to start than the present.
