There are so many deals happening today, and I’m excited to share some with you. The most impressive (and unexpected) deal is on Apple’s 2021 iPad mini, which gets a design overhaul similar to the iPad Air. Normally $499.99 for the 64GB Wi-Fi version, you can get it for just $399.99 today at Amazon, Best Buy, and Target. This beats the best price ever by about $50. Being an aggressive bargain that doesn’t fit anywhere, this one might see some color options sell out quickly. And if you’re interested in more storage, the 256GB configuration is $100 off as well, costing $549.99 instead of $649.99.
The 2021 iPad Mini features an 8.3-inch screen and is powered by the A15 Bionic chipset. One of the big advantages it has over the less expensive basic iPad is the USB-C charging port, which allows for broader compatibility with accessories. The second-generation Apple Pencil can rest on its side to recharge to start playback. Read our review.

The good deals haven’t stopped yet. Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy are hosting a great price on the 41mm Apple Watch Series 7 – Apple’s newest smartwatch. Normally $399, it’s back to its lowest price so far at $329. We’ve seen that price a few times, but a $70 discount on Apple’s latest product isn’t something to sneeze at.
