Hhgregg Black Friday ad includes 12.9-inch Apple iPad Pro deal

The regional retailer is first one we've seen to discount the largest iPad, while also offering discounts on the smaller iPad Pro and the iPad Air 2.


Hhgregg is a regional retailer with Black Friday deals that try to match the national chains.

Hhgregg is a regional electronics and appliance retailer with stores dotting states east of the Mississippi. In the last couple of years it's ramped up its Black Friday game, and this year's ad is no exception. While many competitors haven't been able to match the big boys (Best Buy, Target, Walmart) with deals on Apple iPads, Hhgregg can, with a deal on a model that no one has matched yet.

Though others have offered discounts on the smaller 9.7-inch iPad Pro, we've seen none that's had a deal on the original, larger, 12.9-inch version. Hhgregg, however, is taking $70 off the base configuration, lowering the price to $729. It's not forgetting the smaller version, slashing $50 from the base price of that iPad Pro, too. It's also taking a similar amount off the other 9.7-inch iPad, the Air 2, knocking the price to $349.99.

Hhgregg has several other tablet deals, but they are similar to the ones we've seen at almost every other retailer, including the Amazon Fire 7-inch for $33.33 as a Black Friday morning doorbuster and Galaxy Tab specials that aren't more enticing than elsewhere. It has a different second-tier Android tablet sale but for a similar budget price: the $59.99 Proscan has a 9-inch screen and comes with a keyboard case, though it is only $10 less than what's currently on the Hhgregg website.

Several laptops, and a single desktop, are included in the Hhgregg Black Friday ad, starting at $159.99 with the Asus Chromebook C300 with Intel Celeron N3060 processor, 4GB of RAM, 16 gigs of built-in storage, and a 13.3-inch display. For $20 more, you can grab a Windows 10 system instead in the form of an HP 14-an013nr with AMD E2 processor, 4 gigs of RAM, 32GB solid-state storage, and 14-inch screen. Other laptop deals include:

  • HP 15-ay075nr -- Core i3/6GB/500GB/15.6-inch display -- $279.99 (doorbuster)
  • HP 15-ay067nr -- Core i5/6GB/1TB/15.6-inch display -- $399.99
  • Dell Inspiron i5555-2857GRY -- AMD A10/8GB/1TB/15.6-inch touchscreen -- $449.99
  • Dell Inspiron 2-in-1 i5568-0463GRY -- Core i3/4GB/500GB/15.6-inch full HD touchscreen -- $479.99
  • Asus R541UA-RB51 -- Core i5/8GB/1TB/15.6-inch display -- $479.99
  • HP 15-ay068nr -- Core i7/8GB/1TB/15.6-inch display -- $499.99

The one desktop sale is the HP 22-b010 all-in-one. It features an AMD A6-7310 processor, 4GB of RAM, terabyte hard drive, and 21.5-inch full HD display. At $379.99, it's $50 less than its current price.
