Updated on July 13, 2015

Where to Buy the New iPad Mini for a Cheap Price

Welcome to our ultimate resource for finding the best for the iPad Mini. When Apple unveiled the iPad Mini in September 2012, it set the price at $329. Here we will show you the various places where you can get a cheap iPad Mini, including Amazon and eBay. The iPad Mini has become the hottest gift item of 2015, with Apple recently having to revise their sales projections for the iPad Mini from 6 million units to over 12 million! (source: Macrumors

If you're planning on giving the iPad Mini as a gift or know someone who is, then you might want to consider getting an iTunes gift card for that person. The iTunes gift card can be printed out electronically (so you don't have to worry about snail mail!) and can be set to any amount. This will enable the lucky person to purchase the apps, music and videos that they want on Christmas day.

We are featuring all different models of the iPad Mini. If you want the baseline iPad Mini model, which is has 16GB memory and wi-fi only capabilities, there will be a few models featured here (including both the white and black models!). We're also featuring all the models, right up to the 64GB LTE iPad Mini, which retails for about $720. No matter your preference you'll find an iPad Mini that you're looking for. But hurry up! The iPad Minis are selling out all over the place!

Apple iPad Mini MF432LL/A (16GB, Wi-Fi, Space Gray )
Apple iPad Mini MF432LL/A (16GB, Wi-Fi, Space Gray )

Apple is currently selling the iPad Mini on Amazon at a price that varies by the day. This is the base model version of the iPad Mini, which has 16GB of memory and wi-fi only. I've always found with my 16GB regular iPad that I never fill the iPad up, even with hundreds of songs and a couple movies on the iPad. Especially when everything on your iPad Mini is backed up through iCloud, 16GB is plenty for most activities (except if you want a lot of graphics intensive games!).

For when you need maximum storage. These iPad Minis feature 64GB of memory, which means you can fill them with all the music, movies and podcasts you want and never have to worry about it. If you tend to play a lot of games on your tablet (especially graphics intensive), then a larger tablet would make sense. Some games are a couple of GB in size so your storage space can fill up quickly!
