Walmart rollback: 16GB iPad 2 is now $299

Walmart iPad 2 rollback

Walmart’s been frequently offering up various discounts concerning iPad 2 models. For example, its most recent iPad 2 sales promotion shaved $100 off in the form of a $100 electronic gift card.

Starting today, the entry-level Wi-Fi-only iPad 2 model with sixteen gigabytes of storage can be purchased over at the online and retail Walmart stores for as low as $299, a cool $100 saving over its retail price of $399.

The price change is the result of Walmart’s rollback promotion, which occurs when a supplier gives Walmart a discount in the purchase price of a product. A rollback can be also the result of high demand.

This particular discount affects only the entry-level iPad 2 model. The Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad 2 still sells for $479, or $50 less versus Apple’s asking price…

To claim your $299 iPad 2, check out the Walmart webstore.

This is also Walmart’s best-selling iPad 2 model.

There are no strings attached to the $299 iPad 2 price point: you are not required to trade-in your old device and the discount does not come in the form of a gift card.

All of Walmart’s rollbacks can be seen here.

Given that rollbacks can be as short as a day or last as long as a company wide rollback, consider acting now before the price goes back up.

Those who don’t mind getting a slightly used device can get themselves refurbished Wi-Fi iPad 2 units for $279 at Walmart. Cellular iPad 2 refurbs are going for $399.

These slightly used devices have been factory-refurbished for good-as-new appearance. All refurbished products come with Apple’s standard 1-year warranty.

    ipad 2 is quite obsolete at this point, other than the educational sector I see no point in buying this.

      How is it obsolete? They’re still being sold. My friend bought one for his mom. It works fine. Just because there are newer versions available doesn’t make something obsolete.

    while I use my iPad 2often, I would not buy one now, even if it was $199.

    With the rumor of iPad 2 being discontinued, I would hold out for the iPad air once the newest iPad is released.
