Amazon Prime Day is a serious holiday for shoppers on a budget, but almost everyone stands to gain from the deep discounts Amazon is giving out during the iconic sale event. I wrote about Amazon Prime Day for five years now, and I can honestly say that 2023 had some of the best deals I’ve seen yet, but it’s not over yet.
The sale ends in a few hours, but Amazon surprised me once again by offering a last minute deal on Apple’s iPad. The best-selling tablet has hundreds of thousands of five-star reviews and is on sale for 20% off. They’ve taken over $100 off the price so you can pick up the beloved device for less than $400 now.
Listen, I understand. It’s now $389 and it’s not exactly cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. It’s an amazing gift idea for yourself, or the recent high school or college grad in your life. You don’t trust me? Just check out one of the many rave reviews this has.
“I got this as a gift for myself. I’m a student and I work too. I worked hard to save up and buy this. It’s the best thing I’ve ever bought. It’s been two years and I love it It’s so affordable and very versatile I still use it and will continue to use it for time to come.
It’s not just going to offer all the same functions as your phone. Apple’s iPad also lets you use features like Keynote (their version of Powerpoint). They even have a smart keyboard that makes typing intuitive. You can always buy a external keyboard and wedge the iPad with a case to turn it into a makeshift laptop, too. This is a particularly useful feature if you travel frequently.
People also love that you can open multiple apps on your screen at once. So you can stream the island of love while having your group messages open. Or, you can participate in a Zoom call while working on a presentation with your colleagues. Those of you who love taking photos will also appreciate the 12MP ultra-wide camera that takes seriously high quality pictures. Hey, that’s way more convenient than traveling with a bulky camera.
It’s an amazing deal, but you’ll want to grab it ASAP. First day ends in just a few hours, so this is a last-minute deal you (literally) can’t afford to ignore.
