Price @ Amazon Why is Amazon accepting the prices from these .com's when at the Apple store, B & H, even Target it's $499??? Are they so sure folks will assume that Apple's store has the *worst* price? Buyer beware!
I'm seriously pissed off about this pricing. I have an Amazon Rewards Visa card. I get three points for every dollar spent on an Amazon purchase vs one point for each dollar spent somewhere else. This is $60 above list price. It is just as cheap for me to drive to an Apple store and buy it and pay the sales tax as to purchase this iPad from Amazon. This is like a big middle finger raised at me from Amazon.
Amazon wants us to buy their tablet so they raise the price on the IPad, hoping we will see how inexpensive their tablet is and buy it. This will only work with very few uninformed customers. Amazon is missing out on a lot of sales by doing this.
you can buy the ipad at a lot of stores for 499 and with sales tax its still about 20 dollars cheaper.walmart,target,meijer and the apple store are all 499.thats where im going to buy it.i thought amazon was supposed to be cheaper than the retail stores.thats why i bought the prime membership.they could be selling a lot of these if they would just come down to 499
