All iPad mini Discounts, Offers and Sale - March 2019
*sell old hardware
Not a bad price but it is almost 4 years old now so need to factor that in. A new Mini may be announced in a couple of weeks, if so, expect to see the Mini 4 drop further.
I order Monday and it was here on wed :o everything fine expect it came with a 2 pin charger with travel adaptor.
Around 10 days
eGlobal? Never again!!! They do not respect the European guarantee, only Chinese with is useless in UK
I just logged-in, went to help/contact, opened a chat and wrote "I'm thinking about rejoining, are there any deals you can offer?" They immediately came back with the £3.99 for three months offer.
Where do you find the offer to resignation for £3.99? I cancelled my membership ages ago and just logged back in and it's saying £7.99
Yep. Your membership never ends. You just go through to cancelling it and at the end it offers you the option. But I'm pretty sure this would happen even if there was a lapse in membership. I'm not saying everyone will get this offer every time, but that's currently what I'm doing.
When you do it that way do you still get to access to the books you have ordered previously? I like to relisten to the books once in a while
For me it's been: cancel -> 3 months of £3.99 -> cancel -> £3.99. So far.
Is this offer still live? Seems to come up at full price.
I agree compared to a full size iPad, but I can’t fit those in my trouser pocket....
I purchased one of these on black Friday for £279 with the intention of using it with my iPhone SE's hotspot as sometimes the screen was just too small. Problem was I had to then carry it with me all the time. The screen on the iPad mini was lovely but in the end I returned it, bit the bullet, and managed to get an iPhone X from argos ebay which was like new for £589. I am loving the iPhone X but then it is a large jump from an SE to the X!
Yes but compare it with a new iPad and it's struggling to keep up. The 4 is not much faster than the 2 and for gaming or anything power hungry it's showing its age. I have one and it's irritatingly especially for the money.
I find that hard to believe considering my mini2 is still running just fine
Apple Watch ordered, was getting one anyway. Did it with the bnpl using code. Didn’t mention the £50 anywhere so have raised a query with them.
Thank you for your advice
I too had this, contacted live chat and was told because I hadnt used account in a while they stop offering BNPL. So I went on the store and bought something cheap and used Take 3 payment, next day I check my account and what am I being offered? BNPL 12 months and the code works :)
Most of them out of stock
Well the code doesn’t work for Me unfortunately
not worth it, get a glass protector so much easier to fit than plastic film and offer more protection
PLASTIC PROTECTOR Great fun (lol)
Misread that... Now I'm thinking about Darude.
250 at very now with the cashback offer
I've had ipads since the original came out and you have been lucky then as the home button on the ipad 2 was a known issue for stopping working and i had that exact same issue on my ipad 2 i bought from John Lewis and had to use their warranty and got given a new ipad. Nothing to do with using it properly lol
Owned 7 ipads since the original was release and I've never needed to use the warranty. Not much could go wrong with an ipad if you use it properly.
..and so it should. Its far better. Its the latest tablet and will get updates for a few years,as oppose to the ipad that is already obsolete, no longer gets updates.Its been abandoned by Apple.
And costs almost as much as well, lol.
Have you a link to that can’t see £40 gift card option
Or Apple at £319 with a £40 gift card
Gold, silver Out of stock
I THINK You have to do and become and member first and then try Or just by from Argos/John Lewis for £299
Not if you want an ipad mini
It’s showing as £299 not £269?
Out of stock?
No, it's gone hot because people get a boner about Apple products. Keeping up with the Jones's, name, brand blah blah blah.
You can use WhatsApp but can't take a SIM card to take cellular calls, texts or mobile data. But getting your self an external WiFi hotspot and putting a SIM card in that could enable mobile data on the go.
so what is better, the Ipad Mini, or the Ipad 2018? Both are in same price point. Is the main difference the Ipad Mini is 3yrs old tech?
Hahahahahahahaha, yep!, ditto that ...
That's why Amazon is this price. If John Lewis changes then so will Amazon :)
Looks like the lowest price around, curry's and John Lewis also matched this price. Very is £249 though if bought through credit, not sure if I want to use them though 😳.
Ordered to collect from my local store tomorrow, cheers OP. Spent ages deciding between this and the new 2018 iPad, and went with this in the end as it's a nice size and will fit in the controller for my drone without having to faff about with a tablet holder. I just hope it doesn't age too quickly as it's quite an old model now, but for the price I don't think you can go far wrong
Can the apple pencil be used with this ipad mini 4?
Good reason to get this as opposed to the 2018 is the size and screen quality. If you are travelling a lot and want to have applications that fit in with the apple ecoystem then this is a great option. If you write, read, listen to music, email, browse the web, watch films and such like then this is ideal. If you want to play games, use the pencil or use more power intensive apps then go for the 2018 or pro model. The mini2 is still working well but slow. I imagine this mini4 will have another 4 years of good usage, after which it will be a bit slow but still fine for the basics. Hope that helps with a few of the opinionated comments above which are confused why others might want this deal.
Partner discount mate
How'd you get that price? XD
It’s an Apple thing, they typically never drop a price on a released product. It will stay at this price point until Apple either replaces or discontinues it. Unless you really need the mini for its size the newer 9.7” is a much better value proposition
Been this price for weeks...
Why is the mini more than the 9.7" ipad? looking to get my mum one for christmas, but not sure which is best
Try capital letters ?
Code not working?
What can you do to make it faster?
Still using it now but just Video call and watch Youtube sometime. There are some tricks to make this iPad mini 1st gen a little bit faster.
what a horrible thing to say.
Frozen deal 😳, is there anything better around? I'm after an iPad mini.
Yes, it's night and day difference. The budget iPad feels like touching plastic and flexes when you apply pressure, the mini 4 has much better contrast and feels cool to the touch, like glass should - same as the Air 2 and Pro series. I think Apple said they are killing the mini range or at least it was inferred a while back, for whatever reason.
Agreed, people sometimes comment about the gap in the display. I would rather have the 4, but they really need to up and revamp the tech in the mini 5 (if they ever bring such a thing)
Mostly but the laminated display on the mini 4 is pretty amazing.
I was going to get one of these, as I like the smaller form factor - but when I compared it to the ipad 2018, it was cheaper and far better tech
They seem to have dropped to this price everywhere I got one the other day from John Lewis and it came with a 3 year warranty
Cheaper at eglobal
Yes. Back to over £500 again. Hopefully someone benefitted from this. I have the mini 2 and it still runs everything I throw at it. The 4 adds quite a bit extra even if it is old.
Item discontinued from ebuyer. May want to expire post
Not sure why this is cold as the Cellular/4G ones are over £500 elsewhere. I know you can get the WiFi only versions ones for £300. Also another advantage of the cellular vision is that it has GPS for SatNav/Map positioning for when there is no WiFi that the WiFi only ones don't have.
Bit old now, but considering how hot the regular version is getting at £299, I think it's not too much to ask to pay an extra £12.99 for the 4G
Duno I bought one the other day an it’s pretty quick.
Well ok then!! It looks like we agree!! :)
Fair enough well done
Nope, it was one of those ‘too good to be true’ moments, but it actually happened. There was a guy/girl on here who worked for Tesco and was checking store stock for people - I saw one of my local stores wasn’t mentioned so I went in and asked. The guy who served me nearly fell through the floor when he scanned it! (lol)
No-one thinking about the surface go at £50 more..?
Exactly. That’s why it was in quotes.
£59 off for a crappy old Amazon Fire 7. Very happy with that! Plus £10 Argos voucher if I put through on Thursday. Good one!
Did anyone get this deal to work?
If you have some old tablets lying around, can you trade in 4 for example and benefit from £200 in savings?
Tried to get the deal against an iPad 1 WI-Fi 32 GB but got nowhere on the link. Tried the Argos chat and after being sent from pillar to post between a few operators still none the wiser... Garbage!
I have a faulty ipad air which has already had the screen replaced but has a broken home button now..so £66 towards a new one sounds good. Quick question I've filled in the details but my confirmation email only states the trade in value of the ipad nothing about the additional £50 Argos voucher - is this correct?
Thankyou all its altered my decision on buying it
Sorry no I didn't know that. Steered clear
Would have perhaps made more sense to have stated the £279 price tag for the gold one instead? (then rather/possibly also then referenced the slightly more expensive £282.99 on somewhere in your Deal Description?). The cheapest tends to win moreso here (especially when it comes to Apple products ... )
I think it's more because almost £300 for a 3 year old tablet doesn't seem like a particularly good price.
Awful price, and quite old now Do yourself a favour and pay the extra for the 2018 9.7
Nice little find @Ksudheer - thanks for sharing. Heat added :)
