Apple Ipad Air 2 64GB Wifi Model Space Grey - £359 with code MARCH2016 from Pixel Electronics (Rakuten)

Found 30th Mar 2016
Just had an email from Rakuten offering 15% off the Ipad Air 2 64GB via Pixel Electronics - bring the price down from £419 to £359 (according to Rakuten's site the maximum discount is capped at £60).

Also 2095 points worth £20.95 - better than a slap in the face with a smelly fish

**Looks like Silver and Gold are also available to choose as the 64GB model currently - same price**

oh...also dont forget a further potential 3.5% off via Quidco

Cheers OP. Ordered:)
and my Maths says that the 16gb is £289, good price, but is Pixel electronics and Rakuten a uk company? and what are they like?
After a few searches, it appears these are imported units and can't imagine Apple uk would honor the guarentee, so the warranty would require sending back the unit to the supplier, could be a bit of hassle, excellent price, would jump at it if this was UK units.

Apples warranty is world wide so no need to worry
It's showing as £340 for the 16GB version for me?
Works for iPad Mini 4 and iPad Pro too

The code seems to be single use.

Don't you have to purchase the Apple Care within 60 days of purchase? If yes, you would need to know if it's been imported within 60 days I suppose
Is Pixel Electronic reliable? The review isn't very good
I bought an iPad Air from these guys before Christmas. It was a brand new product but came with a 2 prong plug and a very iffy looking UK adapter. I ended up using all my Rakuten points to buy a proper UK 3 prong transformer, the site doesn't make it very clear that the product is not a UK item.
You have been warned.

Yes they are, I bought from them once an Ipad as a present and service was really good. They been selling on Play.com for few years and then when play changed to Rakuten UK they opened a store there.

At the bottom of the description it says "Imported units supplied with UK 3-pin adapters", while I would just throw out the adapter they ship it with (bound to be cheap), it doesn't cost much to get a replacement, I'm sure most people already have a USB plug charger from another phone/tablet..

You have to purchase in the first year. Year and a day: too late
I'm getting: Please enter a valid voucher code and try again.????
I bought an ipad mini 2 from them about a year ago
Very pleased with my purchase, but a few points:
Yes they are non - UK. Mine was from a country that still uses UK plug (Hong kong I think). I had read other reports from people where it was from a country that doesn't use a UK plug they get an adapter instead - of course you can use your own USB adapter or plug into a USB port on a laptop/PC to charge - whichever you prefer.
Apple still honour the warranty regardless of country it came from, just in the same way if you bought one on holidays in the USA or Europe they will still help you.
Pixel seem to get their discounts by buying in bulk, and it took about 2 weeks for me to receive it, and I'm assuming this is because they place bulk orders with their supplier every week or two.

If you want an ipad at a great price that's still supported by Apple UK, then go for it.
if you want guaranteed next day delivery then perhaps best to look elsewhere

thanks

Your receipt from the people you buy it from is when the 60 days starts - this is your proof of purchase date, not when they bought it from distribution/Apple etc.

You're right, I already had a standard iPhone charger but this only outputs 1 amp and takes ages to charge. The iPad chargers output 2.1 amps and charges the bigger battery much quicker.
The adapter they supply looks like it would burst into flames the first time I used it, getting another adapter was just another cost I wasn't expecting. Saying that, I probably still would have bought this item again.
Amazing find, as I was about to order one as a gift anyway. They might be imported, bt you do get an adaptor apparently.

I went for the 16gb white one, and it came to £289 as someone else pointed out.
So if you had a fault in the first year, would this be returned to supplier or Apple UK? Been thinking about the one at John Lewis for £249, but for another £40, you would get the air 2, seems good deal.
Damn, this site costs me well more money than it saves me! Heat OP

Is it AppleCare or AppleCare+?
Was holding on for the pro, but at this price could not justify the extra 140 notes over a 64Gb air 2.
great site i bought the ipad pro 12.9" a week or two ago when there was a voucher and 20x points instead of 5x. Ordered it at 10am on tuesday and was delivered next day. Just wish they had the ipad pens so i could use my 145 i have now in points to buy a pen, but they dont :-(
I have an iPad Air which I quite like, it's not as fast as I would like and wanted to get rid of it. Also YouTube on iOS sucks compared to Android, there's no back button so for example if you watch a video and then you see a selection of other videos recommended below the main video you're watching you simply can't go back to them, but you can on Android. I've tried all gestures including rude ones and showed it to a mate who uses iOS everyday and he said yeah looks like YouTube is broken deliberately on iOS as Google own YouTube.

If you disagree try it yourself, search for a video, then you get a list of other recommended videos below the main one, watch the video full screen, then try and get back to the recommended videos, you can only go back to the main YouTube page, you can swipe down the video but it will take you to the wrong place. I use YouTube a lot and this is a massive disadvantage to the Android version. In fact it's ridiculously poor, so I'll have to try out some other apps that let you watch YouTube.

Anyway I'm keeping the iPad Air as I've recently seen GeoShred and that has made me want to keep the iPad for years, that app is incredible, screw Android for tablets even though YouTube is better on Android, a lot better.

GeoShred is an amazing musical instrument, or to phrase that correctly, GeoShred turns your iPad in to a unique and simply amazing instrument >

This is the best GeoShred video I've seen, even better than anything Jordan Rudess has played on it and he's one of the inventors and keyboardist from Dream Theater. Here's the Diego Tejeida showing you how it's done >

What a way, you have over done it, no one needs to buy a transformer, it is not a normal nor smart way to get 5V DC charge. Additionally you need to read the tiny print on the Apple original plug label to see if it reads 100V-240V input voltage on it.

Is yours a random guess, or you read their web site for shipping information or you had previous experience of seeing a parcel with shipping postage stamped as from China?

I just done what you asked, on my iPAD Youtube, any version, after viewing I can go back on the page with the recommended list of videos after a search. This is how I did it, on full screen . I pressed screen once, and then see on the bottom right corner an icon next to the end time of film, this would shrink the full screen back to part screen, then you would see the list of recommended videos from before in the search. Then I pressed to minimise the part screen, by pressing the "v" on top left hand corners of the part screen video. Then the part screen was minimised to a small video screen on bottom right hand corner and then I got back to square one, the beginning of the long list of recommended videos from the initial search. And on the screen there was even a back arrow to go back to the orginal screen where I entered the search words, all stupidly easy to do without reading an instruction.
What about the warranty on these Ipads?
Just a quick word of warning my fellow people:

IMPORTANT RESTRICTION FOR iPHONE, iPAD AND APPLE TV SERVICE.

Apple may restrict warranty service for iPhone, iPad and Apple TV to the country where Apple or its Authorized Distributors originally sold the device.

Source: apple.com/leg…tml

Although they tend to service regardless of the country where the device was purchased, they could end up throwing this back in your face.

You get a years warranty when you register with Apple. I have seen a previous comment where a member had their IPad mini repaired by Apple without any issues.

The adapted you get is fairly rubbish. Dispatch can take a while as I presume they sometimes have to wait for items to arrive in the UK. Items are dispatched from within UK (so no import fees) and once dispatched will be delivered next day by FedEx (no tracking info supplied though). I have ordered from them 4 times and been happy with their service and even more happy with their prices.
