Sometimes a great tech deal comes along that jumpstarts your holiday shopping—or inspires you to upgrade your own tech while the gittin’ is good. This is one of those times. Walmart has announced that it’s offering the sixth-generation Apple iPad for $131 off the list price: that’s a price of just $299!
Normally retailing for $430, this Apple iPad features a 9.7-inch LED-backlit touchscreen, 2GB of memory (paired with Apple’s speedy and powerful A10 processor), and a generous 128GB of on-board storage. Translation: everything you need, and then some. You can watch more 4K movies and TV shows, browse the web for up to 10 hours of battery life, and switch from app to app without missing a beat.
The online reviews are stellar: “I'm loving the new Apple iPad 2018 model,” wrote a delighted shopper. “The screen is clear and responsive. My husband and I are using it often. It streams music to our sound system like it should, videos show with a lot of clarity. I can see us using it for years to come.”

This tablet—which is WiFi-only—is so popular, it’s already sold out on Amazon. Equipped with a 1.2-megapixel HD “selfie” cam for FaceTime video, it’s a boon for calls with far-flung friends and family—which make the holidays that much more enjoyable. You can draw on the screen—take notes or sketch out your genius ideas—with the Apple Pencil. All-around, this is the kind of device that can become your best friend. Some folks prefer it to a laptop.
“I bought this after having bought one for my wife last year,” a five-star Walmart reviewer wrote. “She is very happy with hers and it is her ‘go to’ device now. She very seldom uses the computer since she has had her iPad. After her experience I knew I had to have one also. I am very happy with it. The available apps are great and I use it for most of the stuff that I would normally do on my laptop. The camera works great and has very good color and resolution. I am extremely pleased with my iPad.”
Another satisfied reviewer sums it up nicely: “Love, love, love this iPad! Absolutely perfect in every way. Great also for FaceTime with grandchildren.”
Or cousins, college kids, close friends from childhood. At less than $300, this Apple iPad is a steal. Don’t miss this opportunity to get the best possible price and kick off your holiday season with a streamlined, simplified tech life—and the communications capabilities to enjoy loved ones wherever they are.
