Walmart to offer iPad Air for $479 on a ‘roll back’ launch

Walmart is up to it’s Roll Back tricks again and has announced that they will be carrying the new iPad Air on November 1st at the discounted price of $479 for the 16GB WiFi model. That is $20 below the retail price of $499, the biggest such discount we’ve ever seen at launch. There is no word if this discount will be extended to other iPad Air models or the new iPad mini with Retina display when it is released later in November.

Walmart also recently took significant discounts on the iPhone 5s and 5c, which were followed by Target, Radioshack, Best Buy and others so perhaps we’re witnessing a trend.

Apple, Best Buy, Target and others will often price-match other retailers so it’s worth a shot asking on launch day. Here’s your evidence…

Best Buy is offering a free -> $150 iPhone 5 trade-in offer, but it may not be your best bet

Update: Deal is now live.  Today / in-store only.

This morning CNET confirmed some of the same rumblings we’ve been hearing from retail tipsters.  Best Buy will be offering $150 trade-in value for any iPhone 4 / 4S, yielding a free 16GB iPhone 5 (Sprint, Verizon or AT&T) with a 2 year contract thanks to their current $50 off promo.  This deal is only valid in-stores on Saturday June 1st.

Definitely a solid deal for heavily used, less desirable models (Sprint, Verizon), but be sure to check other trade-in services before heading into a Best Buy store.  For instance, Gazelle will pay you $215 for a 64GB iPhone 4S AT&T (good condition), plus another $10 if you use the special 9toToys promo.  In some cases, Amazon will pay upwards of $300 for an iPhone 4S.  Per usual, selling privately (eBay, Craigslist, etc) generally yields the highest payout but requires the most time and effort.  Make sure you survey all of your options before jumping into bed with Best Buy.
