'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Apple, the developer of top products, including the iPad, iPhone, and Mac PCs, rarely discounts its devices.

You can find sales if you know where to look. The iPad, for example, is a popular tool for studies, creative applications, and productivity. Still, with so many generations on the market alongside variants such as the iPad, iPad Pro, and iPad Mini, it's far from impossible to pick up a discount device, especially if you're open to buying a slightly older model.

We've rounded up the best iPad deals that we could find across various U.S. retailers, including Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy. Keep in mind that as sales are few and far between, discounted iPads tend to sell out quickly. 

We've scoured the web for the best deals we could find on different iPad models, and we will keep this list of our recommendations updated as we find new iPad sales.
