When Are The Best Prime Day iPad Deals?

As with any seasonal retail event, the best Prime Day iPad deals will most likely drop during the days of the sale itself. That said, as is also the case with other sales, Amazon likes to throw out some early teaser deals ahead of time — usually during the week before Prime Day — to whet appetites and give Prime members a taste of the good things to come.

Some of these early Prime Day iPad deals might actually be your best chance to score a discount on a particular model you’ve been eyeballing. If you see one you like, don’t pass it by assuming that it will be on sale again (or even if it is, that it will be the same configuration you want being offered at the same low price). If you do end up seeing it cheaper come Prime Day, you can always return the one you bought and buy it again at the lower price. Don’t be shy about using Amazon’s generous return policy to your advantage. That’s what savvy shoppers do.

What Prime Day iPad Deals To Expect

There are five iPad models on the market that we currently recommend: The 2019 10.2-inch iPad, the 2019 iPad Air, the 2019 iPad Mini, the 2018 iPad Pro, and the 2020 iPad Pro (the Pro is the only one that we think is still worth buying last-gen if you can find it at a discount). Also bear in mind that the iPad Pro is available in two different sizes: 11 inches and 12.9 inches. We expect to see all of these among this year’s Prime Day iPad deals, so no matter which one you’re after, there’s a good chance you’ll find it.

Based on what we’ve observed during other sales, we’re hoping to see the 10.2-inch iPad starting at $50 off, the iPad Air and Mini at $50-$100 off, and the 2020 iPad Pro at $100-$200 off. These predictions are for the base models, so you could find even bigger discounts on the pricier upgraded units with more RAM and storage. However, the best Prime Day iPad deals might actually be for the 2018 iPad Pro as retailers like Amazon try to move these older last-gen units to make room for newer stuff. If that turns out to be the case during Prime Day, don’t hesitate to grab one as it could be a sign that they’re not going to be around much longer (and certainly not at these prices).

We strive to help our readers find the best deals on quality products and services, and we choose what we cover carefully and independently. The prices, details, and availability of the products and deals in this post may be subject to change at anytime.
