The Original iPad Just Got Cheaper

If you haven’t purchased a tablet yet but are really looking into getting one, you may have a very hard decision ahead of you if you’re looking into an iPad. You have been faced with the decision of buying the less expensive original iPad or splurging and going for the slightly more expensive iPad 2.

As if that decision wasn’t hard enough, Apple made it even harder for you to decide when it discounted the original iPad models by $100 after the announcement of the iPad 2. This provided even more incentive to just go ahead and buy Apple’s incredibly popular original iPad because it just seemed like such a great deal.

Well, guess what? The deal just got even harder to resist. AT&T has decided to not be outshined by Apple’s discounts on the original iPad. The company has recently announced that customers who are looking to purchase the first generation iPad from AT&T will now enjoy an extra $100 off their purchase, on top of the $100 that Apple has already knocked off.

The final price of the original iPad has now been reduced by $200 at AT&T stores. The 16GB and 32GB versions will now be available for $429 and $529 respectively. In addition to these savings, AT&T has also slashed the price of the 64GB iPad to $529, a $300 savings. This incredible savings can be found at AT&T’s website.

So, you may be sitting there saying, that’s great, but what’s the catch? Well, one of the disadvantages is that AT&T does not sell Wi-Fi only devices, so you are stuck purchasing the more expensive 3G versions. Also, if you are looking to take advantage of the online discount, AT&T requires that you subscribe to their DataConnect Personal Data Plan. The cheapest DataConnect plan gives you up to 250MB of data for $14.99 per month.

Right now, AT&T has a promotional deal that allows users to get the first month of their DataConnect plan completely free. If you decide to be crafty and get around the data plan requirements with AT&T, what you could do is sign up for a plan, like the website requires you to do, and then after the first 30 days, simply cancel your plan. This is a practice that has been used by some of AT&T’s smartphone customers. This is a great way to snatch up a super-discounted iPad from AT&T and really not have any strings attached.
