I haven’t seen this iPad at this price since the Black Friday/early December sales from last year. If you want to get a really good iPad, this deal is for you!
Deal Alert: New 9.7″ iPad on Sale for $249

The regular price for the 32GB is $329 but you can get it now on Amazon again for $249. There are some things to like about this iPad. First of all, it is the best non-“pro” iPad out right now (it was released earlier last year). Also, it is the only non-“pro” iPad to be compatible with the Apple Pencil. It works really well and lets you markup documents, take notes, or do some great drawing (if you can actually draw – it doesn’t make the greatness for you ).
This is one we have for some school stuff and it works exceptionally well. The Apple Pencil feature is a great compliment to it for the note-taking but also as a great way to have a quality tablet to draw on at a relatively inexpensive price (the Apple Pencil is $99 but you can find it on sale or used around $70-80). My kids absolutely love that combo!
This is the 32GB model so it won’t be great if you want to load up content. If you want to move up to the 128GB model, it will cost your $349 (also on sale but not as good as Black Friday). With many people using the cloud, though, 32GB may be perfect for your needs.
Cellular on Sale, Too
If you are interested in having cellular capability, you can get those on sale as well! I do not recall these going on sale before so this is a really good price! I have a cellular equipped iPad and it is fantastic to travel anywhere and instantly be able to connect and get some things done (courtesy of Google Fi, of course!).

Sometime between next month and June, Apple should be releasing their new version of this iPad. Rumors suggest that it will have more powerful internals and potentially smaller bezels. If you would rather wait for the latest tech, hold off on this. However, you will be paying at least $349 then so decide which is the best move for you!
