Woot's huge iPad blowout clears out refurbished models today only
If you're on the lookout for the best iPad deals available, Woot has just kicked off a sale that you need to check out. It offers iPad models from 2014 to 2019 in refurbished condition with prices as low as $185.
Though the devices are listed as Grade B and may show some cosmetic imperfections, they have been tested to ensure they are fully functional and Woot offers a 90-day warranty with whichever you choose. The sale expires tonight or when sold out, so be sure to take a look now.
The most affordable iPad in the sale is the iPad mini 3 from 2014 at $185, though it is the only device in the sale that does not support iPadOS 14 so it might not be the smartest buy for the long term. Just $15 more gets you the 9.7-inch iPad from the same year, for example, or $25 more getting you the iPad mini 4.
For something more recent that will likely last you the longest, check out the iPad models from the last few years like the 10.2-inch iPad, 10.5-inch iPad Air 3, and 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
With whichever iPad you view, it's worth comparing the price with the best iPad deals available for brand new models to ensure you're making the best choice. While the devices on sale at Woot are all previous-gen devices and a direct comparison isn't available, you can get an idea of which is worth snagging quite easily.
The 2020 iPad, for example, is available brand new at Amazon for just $299 which would be a wiser investment than the 2019 version for the same price at Woot. That being said, grabbing a refurb 10.5-inch iPad Pro at Woot for $370 might work better for you than the new 10.9-inch iPad Air starting at $600.
If you want the most affordable iPad possible, or your needs are more basic or you just want an easy-to-use tablet for a kid, one of the early-gen iPad models may still serve you well — especially if you can score one for under $200.
