Future Shop: Permanent Price Drop on All 3rd Generation iPads? [Update]

by on July 9th, 2012

During the last week of June we noted Future Shop and Best Buy had dropped the price of all 3rd generation iPad models by $19.01. Now, it appears the discount might be permanent at Future Shop.ca does not indicate a sale price or expiry on the new prices; they just look like regular prices as marked.

BestBuy.ca on the other hand notes an expiry of the $19.01 discount on July 12th. The last time we spoke with Future Shop they mentioned this discount would be extended into early July.

If you want to save more on your purchase, you can get Future Shop/Best Buy to do a pricematch guarantee against Apple’s prices. You’ll save 10% of the difference (10% of $20) so that would bring your total discount to $21. It’s still a savings considering the latest iPads never go on sale (although there is an existing Back to School promo going on).

We’ve reached out to Future Shop to clarify if the $19.01 price drop is permanent. We’ll update this post when we hear from them.

Thanks @ljmyst3ry!

Update 1: Future Shop got back to us, the sale ends on July 12th.
