Apple’s iPad lineup has gotten more crowded and confusing than ever with the recent introduction of an upgraded Air model sporting a 10.5-inch screen, which isn’t quite as powerful and eye-catching as last fall’s 11-inch Pro variant. But at a starting price of $499.99, the iPad Air (2019) certainly gives the likes of the Android-based Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 a run for their money, packing an excellent A12 Bionic processor.
While a $50 discount made the 10.5-incher feel like a must-buy just last week, Fry’s Electronics is upping the ante today by shaving an incredible $131 off the list price of the Wi-Fi-only 64GB configuration in space gray. That includes $30 instant savings valid until 9 PM PST today, June 25, as well as an additional $101 markdown available by applying the “2288” promo code in your cart before checkout.
Although we don’t see an expiration date listed for the coupon code, we’re guessing it’s the same as for the instant discount. Quantities are also obviously limited, so you may want to hurry and order the heavily marked-down tablet with local delivery or free store pickup (whichever option still shows as available for you).
This is truly a unique opportunity, as iDevices rarely get such deep price cuts so soon after their commercial debut. At $368, the 10.5-inch iPad Air (2019) is discounted by a mind-blowing 26 percent or so, while sporting a beautiful Retina display with True Tone technology and a 2224 x 1668 pixel resolution, a Touch ID fingerprint sensor, powerful stereo speakers, stellar battery life, and decidedly premium build quality.
