    Default Apple Expands Discounts on Refurbished iPads



    Apple is slashing prices yet again on its refurbished Wi-Fi iPads, taking the entry-level 16GB tablet down to $429 while the 32GB tumbles to $499. These "special" and for a "limited time" only prices apply strictly to refurbished iPads, meaning second-time-around models. They do, however, come with a new battery, new shell, and a full one-year warranty. The USB cable and power adapter are there, as is Apple's offer to provide free shipping.

    Apple launched its refurbished iPad discount program earlier this fall, with the first wave of price-cuts bringing a $50 discount across all three Wi-Fi models. 3G iPads are also now available at refurbished prices ($50 off). The best deals are reserved for the Wi-Fi only models. The refurbished Wi-Fi 32GB iPad, for example, runs $499, a full $100 savings over a brand new iPad of the same make and model.

    While some prospective buyers balk at products lumped into Apple's refurbished catalog, the iPads put back into circulation for re-sale have been "tested and certified" by Apple. Given how few complaints are logged by customers who have pulled the trigger on a refurbished iPad, it seems Apple has experienced decent success with the program - as evidenced by Apple's expansion of the program and accompanying discounts.

    Thats the going price on Craigslist for iPads of the same model. I've looked into it and almost bought one. $350-$450 are the prices I have found for 16GB WiFi.

    I'm waiting to see what I get for Christmas before I actually buy one.

    I got a refurbished iPad late last month. Today I called Apple (800-MY-APPLE) and told them that since they had lowered the price within 30 days of my purchase, I should get the price difference. Not only did they give me the $20 bucks back, they also gave me an extra $20 bucks for "inconvenience this has caused me".

    Got the iPad for $409! Pretty sweet!

    Jaja! Good for me! Maybe I can buy one now for 350. If I'm lucky.

    $350 is a reasonable price on craigslist. Up here in NJ/NY these jokers are still trying to get $450 for 16GB Wifi. Funny.

    I'll get a 16GB Wifi for $350 or so and when iPad 2 comes out, I'll give this one to the kids and it will be an upgrade fro their iPod Touch.

    I'd stick with a WiFi version and rely on MyWi on the iPhone.

    perfect timing... My wife wanted one for x-mas, but I didn't feel like spending 600 bucks on her gift so I just placed the order for one ipad wifi (we have wifi everywhere we go or tether), she doesn't care for the new model coming up...
