iPad Pro 11" (2018) 64gb / 256gb - £629.99 Price Match by Currys (See Description)

Posted 26th Jan

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

I just bought the iPad Pro 11" (2018 latest model) 64gb from Currys in-store who price matched the offer on gdprice at £629.99 saving £90. Gdprice are also doing the 256gb version for £765.

Nice little saving if you're in the market for one of these.

I can't seem to show the links to the models on gdprice but Google them and search for the iPads. Then show the prices to Currys in-store and they should price match.

For Apple goods in many ways it’s better to buy from them direct, even if it costs a bit more.

The reason is that they are very good with the 6 year EU regulation after their warranty runs out.
I’ve had them repair laptops in the past 3 years outside of warranty under EU thing, some of which would have cost over £500.

The retailer is responsible for this, not the manufacturer.
Always buy through apple .
I had a 2 year old iPhone 7 plus that was down to 80% battery capacity and had a flicker on the screen sometimes.
Took it into to apple and they replaced battery and screen which would of costed £300 .
Imagine walking into Samsung with a 2 year old galaxy and asking the same !?!?

Was told by my local Curry’s that they’ll only price match with the big sellers and not web stores

Some companies will only price match physical stores. For example John Lewis would only price match brick and mortar stores with a similar high street presence e.g. Currys or Argos. However, Currys price match promise doesn't stipulate it has to be a physical store. Can be any web based company as long as they operate in the UK and the product is in stock. Google search Currys price match promise for more details and show it to their staff members. If that don't work call customer service up.

Fair point I took this into consideration before buying this, but don't know when the new iPad will be released. Could be this half of the year or towards the end. Tech is always advancing. And these iPads are very fast and powerful so they're pretty future proofed anyway.
Decent price match, well played OP.
Doubt my local will price match

You're right. I ve been 3 times in Samsung eperience store with my phone and they did nothing. Samsung warranty is 0.

It'll most probably be out in March, so I'd definitely wait rather than buy now and then regretting it later
Just inquired about this on the live chat with Currys - they don't price match with GD Price as they are not considered as a UK seller
Doesn’t work online, it’s hit and miss in store...

Yes as long as you can prove the fault developed within the first 6 months, it's not like you actually have a 6 year warranty. It's a right to claim up to 6 years after purchasing the product
So tempting as I've been on the lookout for this from curry's for ages. Been waiting for months for them to get that £100 for your old tablet again which they haven't had since last Easter I think.

Should I bite or wait as I want to get rid of my old nexus which I can't pay people to get rid of lol

As for warranty, surely if anything goes wrong you can take it into your apple store regardless of where you bought it

Yes first year only. After that it is the retailer - which of course could be Apple. I agree with the other poster who said that buying from Apple direct is often best because it is the retailer who has the ongoing obligations after the first year.

Someone said to me the new ones coming in March. When it does I’d expect these to go down in price anyway.

indeed. I'm sort of fixated with buying this from Currys because of their £100 trade in deal which sometimes happens, plus I get 8% off through a work scheme at Currys ... so considerably cheaper, whichever model, compared to Apple direct.
Bad deal, can get this significantly cheaper on eBay. Don't buy from mainstream stores like this if you want the best price, significant discounts to be had by using eBay to buy new products from a private seller.

Yep, I grabbed a brand new 12.9 wifi + cellular last week for 699. RRP is £1119 I think.

I would second this comment. Repairs if needed are a heck of a lot easier under Apple. If you buy an Apple item from somewhere like Curry’s or John Lewis in the first year Apple will direct your to the retailer. Which in my experience is a far worse experience.

Tbh if people are more concerned about warranty and after sales service you're still better off by buying this model via Currys. You save £90 but you can use it towards the AppleCare+ 2yr plan which costs £129. So essentially for an extra £39 you get an additional 1 year warranty plus accidental damage cover.

For others like myself have gadget cover via our bank accounts so additional cover is not required.

The first year will still be serviced by the retailer warranty even if you have AppleCare+. I had this very discussion with staff at Apple recently.

That doesn't sound right to me. You essentially spent £129 for an upgraded warranty and but will only get cover for the 2nd year. Surely you'd be able to claim within the first year under the plan. I don't think what the staff said is correct and they're misinformed.

It is correct because I had AppleCare+ on an item. AppleCare is designed to kick in after the first years warranty and can cover an item for up to 3 years. In the first year of a warranty AppleCare extends the telephone support past the standard 90 days. It then kicks in full in the beginning of the second year. Excluding excluding the accidental damage portion of the policy on AppleCare+. I have had Apple products for the best part of 20 years so know their policies. As do their staff know their policies. Both in store and in their service centres they have told me the same. If you want to believe otherwise fill your boots.

Refurb is available for £650 directly from apple. I would go for that instead of a new one from Currys for £620

I can’t find any single note online which backs up what you said. Even in the site below it states AppleCare+ provide only an additional year’s warranty (2 in total). I’m just going by what it says online. I don’t doubt what you said, but I can’t see that in black and white in their policies. I know Apple are generous when it comes to repairs even if outside of warranty. Anyways it’s a personal choice everyone feel free to do as they wish.

You’re obviously intent on proving that you know better than Apples own staff both in store and in their service centre. The link that you quote isn’t even an Apple link. I prefer to go by what Apple advise, not some third party link. Even this screen shot from their own website during the checkout process clearly says cover for ‘up to’ three years!

My intention isn't on proving that I know better. You came up with a statement and you can't prove it. And not all staff know what they're talking about. Like I said I don't doubt what you said. If a staff member told you it's 3 years (1yr warranty + upgraded care) then I get why you think it's 3 years. But I can't see it on their website. I'm more than happy to stand corrected. The link you sent was the Apple Care for a Mac which is 3 years. The iPad is 2 years.

So if you're going to counter argue, then come up with some valid links in the first place.

I’m not even going to bother cos you’re not interested in anyone else’s opinion but your own. I know what both Apple staff both in store and online told me. I’ve been dealing with Apple for the best part of 20 years and know their policies and the standard to which staff are held to. Getting policy information wrong just doesn’t happen. As for ‘proving it’. I don’t need to prove anything. You’re intent that Apple staff are wrong as am I. And frankly I don’t care one iota whether you or anyone believes what I’m telling you. I’m trying to help by shearing my experience and you continually want to insist I’m wrong because I can’t prove it. So let’s leave it there. I don’t need to prove anything and you’re free to think what you like. Have a nice day.
Worth considering a budget option if you’re hard up...

I had apple care similar problem and had to pay £90 for replacement. If I’d gone there without Apple care would they have even helped me at two years?
