  1. Any news if this 20$ discount can be used toward a 32GB WiFi model?


  2. Is this happening for Walmart Canada also?


  3. Do we know if Walmart will carry the iPad Air in it’s different sizes and LTE options Day 1? Or is there any reason to think that they wouldn’t?

    Anyone know how much a iPad Mini 64gb wifi, pretty good condition is worth?

    The Apple Retail Stores are not price matching Walmart… I just tried and they told me no.
