With summer on its way out, back-to-school shopping becomes an increasingly important priority. But it can be extra nerve-wracking for those about to head off to college. But now, thanks to retailers like Best Buy, students can get amazing deals like a discount on a 6th generation iPad Pro.
When you buy your new iPad through Best Buy, you’ll save $200, bringing the price down from $799.99 to $599.99. Just a little extra cha-ching for your new adventures as an adult in higher education.
To take part in Best Buy’s 6th generation iPad sale, simply sign up for or log into your Best Buy account. From there, sign up for Student Deals — no .edu email address required. Then, once you’re enrolled in Student Deals, you’ll see the deals in your Member Offers section.
Add the 64GB Apple iPad Pro 11″ WiFi Tablet to your cart and proceed to the checkout page. On the checkout page, apply the “Save $50 on select iPad Pro models,” and your total goes down to $599.99.

You can choose to pay it all upfront or opt for the payment plan. Shipping is free on all models and is also available for in-store pickup. New subscribers also receive one month free of iCloud storage.

Get a Discount on the Microsoft Surface 2 Laptop

If the iPad isn’t an appealing option but you still want touch-screen technology, the Microsoft Surface 2 Laptop (LQL-00001) is also $200 off (bringing the total down to $699).
At checkout, make sure you’re signed in to your account to activate Student Member deals. Like the iPad deal, the Surface 2 can be paid entirely upfront or with a payment plan. Shipping and in-store pickup are also available.

When choosing between the iPad 6 and the Surface 2, consider exactly what you need from your device.
In addition to the touchscreen feature, the Surface also boasts a larger display and longer battery life than the iPad. However, the iPad is lighter for both you and your wallet and comes with Face ID technology which allows you to access Apple Pay.
The iPad also comes with one month free of the iCloud and three free months of Apple Music, whereas the Surface 2 does not have the extra perks. Furthermore, with the money you save on your iPad you could always add a smart keyboard to your order.
