The official online Apple Refurbished Store has dropped the prices of several iPad models. A 16GB iPad mini can now be had for just $219 shipped, which is a fresh $30 dip from the most recent refurb price and a savings of $80 compared to retail. All Apple refurbished products are backed by a 1-year warranty and “include a brand new battery and outer shell.” You can also opt to buy AppleCare+ if you are the ultra cautious-type.

Other special prices include a 16GB iPad 4th gen. WiFi for $299, and a 16GB iPad 2 WiFi for $249. Jump on these deals quickly because the product pages warn that these are special limited time prices, and we have always found Apple refurbished quantities to be extremely limited.

If you must buy a new unit then we recommend getting in on this deal for just $240. Target is also giving away free gift cards with the purchase of an iPad.

You can find the current best deals on iPad accessories from Logitech, ZAGG, Lifeproof and even discounted iTunes gift cards in today’s 9to5Toys Lunch Break.
