Best Buy to expand iPad availability to all US stores

updated 03:40 pm EDT, Tue September 14, 2010

Suggests end to supply problems

All of Best Buy's 1,093 US stores will carry the iPad as of September 26th, according to an announcement. At present the retailer is only offering the device through the Apple Shops in 673 outlets. Prices are very marginally higher than Apple's own, for instance $499.99 for a 16GB Wi-Fi model, instead of $499 flat. A 3G tablet from Best Buy costs a minimum of $629.99.

The expanded reach suggests that Apple is no longer having any problems meeting iPad demand. Online shipping times plummeted during August, from 5 to 7 days at the beginning of the month to 1 to 3 by the middle, and finally to within 24 hours by August 28th. Both Apple and Best Buy are expected to put heavy emphasis on the iPad this holiday season.

    sure, more expensive

    But you get all that great quality service from Best Buy representatives when you go to the store and pick it up.

    Not a big BB fan.

    ....however, I do like their rewards program very much. I bought two iP4s through them and it netted me some nice gift cards because of the points. If it costs the same or within a few dollars at BB, I'll but it at BB; otherwise, I'll look elsewhere. The rewards program is the only thing they have going for them.

    Get your stuff from Amazon. You'll save more money on their discounts then you'll ever make back on their ever-changing rewards program.
