Best Buy isn’t the only major US retailer trying to steal Amazon’s thunder just before this year’s official start Prime Day celebration, and while Walmart doesn’t use a bombastic ‘Black Friday in July’ style labels to promote their own hot summer deals on some of the hottest gadgets out there, one sale in particular looks too good to ignore or put off.
Previously available for $600 and up, Apple’s fourth-generation iPad Air was recently discounted to a completely unprecedented and seemingly unbeatable $400… for Walmart+ members. Believe it or not, the entry-level 64GB storage configuration of the now decidedly mid-range 10.9-inch slate is up for grabs at the time of writing for an even lower $379.
Better yet, there are no restrictions, special requirements or obligations to this crazy new promotion, meaning you don’t have to pay a monthly or annual subscription fee to save a whopping $220 compared to the The original starting price of iPad Air 4.
Released in Fall 2020 with a then-impressive Apple A14 Bionic processor under the hood, this villain was upgraded earlier this year with a state-of-the-art M1 chip and… not much else of real interest. Somewhat surprisingly, this significantly more powerful The fifth-generation iPad Air was initially priced the same as its predecessor, running at $600 and up.
That makes the 2020 edition of the iPad Air a hotter-than-ever bargain at less than four Benjamins in a total of five different color options, at least for now. The same exact device costs $450 at Best Buy, while Amazon seems to no longer have it in stock, at least in brand new condition. Incredibly, Amazon is charging more than Walmart for a redesigned unit, further highlighting the sheer value of the latter’s latest promo.
With a beautiful Liquid Retina IPS LCD display in tow, as well as excellent battery life, excellent speakers and a USB Type-C port, it’s almost obvious that the fourth-generation iPad Air can easily handle all best android tablets in its price range in almost every major department.
