Deal limited to 16GB Wi-Fi models
US retailer Fry's has launched a special Black Friday promotion for the iPad Air. Under the deal, people buying the tablet can get a $100 Fry's gift card; shoppers must, however, specifically pick up a 16GB Wi-Fi model. The promotion is also on a first-come-first-served basis, and not all locations are participating.
Fry's is selling the 16GB Wi-Fi Air for $479, $20 below its normal cost. A number of retailers are expected to discount Apple products this week, including Apple itself, although third parties usually offer steeper discounts. The main advantage of buying through Apple is better inventory.
