You can save a significant amount of money when you want to buy an iPad if you aren’t worried about buying a brand new version of the latest model. Apple is continuing to produce last generation models, such as those that don’t have the retina display and choosing one of those models can discount the price of an iPad drastically over choosing the more advanced versions.

Another way to save money on an iPad is to buy a refurbished model. You will find that you can save fifty dollars and more if you choose a refurbished iPad over one that has not been refurbished. If you choose a refurbished iPad that is a last generation model, you will save even more money. You can get these refurbished iPads at Apple, Best Buy or Newegg. Make sure whatever you buy comes with a one year warranty so you will feel assured that you are protected just in case the model you buy is a bad model.

You can also save a lot of money on an iPad if you buy a used one from Amazon or eBay. You can find other used ones from places such as Craigslist, but you might not have the same protection if the iPad doesn’t work well. It is also a good idea to check out who you are considering buying a used iPad from to see what kind of ratings they have as a seller so you are sure you are buying from someone reputable. If you do find a great iPad for cheap on Craigslist, make to meet at a public location and never release your personal information.
