Or you can get a new one for $299 at Target - on the cover of this week's newspaper insert. Additional 5% off if you have the REDCard (Target credit card)

Thanks...! In for one (for the free shipping and no sales tax)

@david On the other hand, rakuten will be tax-free for most. How many states don't have a Target? So, for my area, the Target price would come out to $307 after taxes and 5% savings, or $323 without the savings, compared to $280 for this one. Is it worth $27-43 to get an unopened one? Maybe.

Thanks for the target tip... I had a 5% pharmacy rewards discount coupon that expired today. I used it with my Red card to get an additional 10% off the $299 sale price plus free shipping!! Yes, I had to pay tax, but it is new (closed box)! Awesome deal!

A word of warning if you decide to go for this Rakuten deal... the reseller from Rakuten's marketplace is actually "Click and Go Buy"... and if you check their feedback here... http://www.rakuten.com/listing/sellersummary.asp?sellerID=23519142&tab=2

... they have 8% negative, many of which are complaints about iPads and iPad minis that were supposed to be new but were actually used.

Order at your own risk... Good luck!!

@rhoffpauir: Thanks - will keep my fingers crossed, for sure. I'm not sure if this is worth anything, but upon checkout I was given an option from "Google Trusted Stores" to protect my purchase for free. I've not used this service before, but Google claims they will step in if a product is not received or if it's received in a condition other than advertised - I assume that means that if I receive an iPad that's obviously been used, I could (theoretically) return it for a refund.

@rhoffpauir: Yes but these are stated as used/open box so if you factor those complaints out, how many are left?

@first2summit: Where do you get that it states "used/open box"? This sale is marked as New/open box, and from the description of most of the complaints, they were all clearly expecting "new/open box" as well and were upset that they received clearly used items. Please clarify your comment...

thanks!

Attempted to buy one but it would not apply the discount. So I canned the deal. :-/
