Lucky Dude Buys a Brand New iPad 2 for $65 from a Goodwill Store

By , Feb 3, 2012

If this isn’t pure luck, then I don’t know what it is.

Reddit user djrjr is a frequent shopper at his local Goodwill store. A few days ago, as he was browsing the store, he came across a brand new 32GB iPad 2 wifi in the box, selling for $65.

Confused about such a low price, he asked the manager to make sure everything was correct. The manager confirmed that this brand new iPad was indeed selling for the bargain price of $65…

I am a constant shopper at Goodwill, they get a fair amount of money from me for everyday things. The thing is if I hadn’t bought it would’ve sold almost instantly for the same price. I don’t feel dirty or shameful buying it from them, I checked with the manager twice to make sure this was correct and he insisted that it was right. I even told him how much it is worth and he still said that was the right price. I donate old/unwanted items to Goodwill a lot too so I’ll sleep fine tonight.

It is unclear how this iPad got on the Goodwill shelves for such a low price. One thing is sure, this dude got an awesome deal that he sure won’t find anywhere else.

    Going to my local goodwill right now to see if I get lucky, and to drop off more clothes I don’t wear anymore.

    whats gets me is. u would think an employee would have bought it. or even the manager would have question the low price. $65 bucks. lucky guy.

      No Problem Dude, If you find iPad 1 (32GB) at $65, just tell us !
      It worth ! (even iPad1). Not ? ;-)

      I don’t think you had one. Its an iPad 2 dude. iPad 2 box is labeled as ‘iPad’ as well. And! Look at the front facing camera. Yeah stare at it till your eyes hurts. ;P

    What the heck is Goodwill :P

    WOW! I paid $700 more than he did! This is great! I donate to Goodwill all the time and will periodically check around for electronic stuff. My local goodwill typically carries computers, computer parts, hard drives, memory, etc. I would have never thought an iDevice would have shown up. If this is true, this is great!

    I kind of know the feeling. I’m straight up poor…..getting my 32GB iPhone 4 was pure luck. No way I would have been able to afford it without such events.lol
