iPad Mini Retina on sale?

I am not an Apple user so I need some help here. Has Apple products ever been on sale like all other electronics? Should I expect the price will be slashed soon just for the X'mas session? The reason is that I am considering buying the Mini Retina and wonder if I should wait for the sale (if it will ever happen).

Also, does the Canadian version allow Traditional Chinese Handwriting input which will be useful for web browsing? Thanks in advance.

I think I read somewhere here that apple store may have a 7% discount on BF, you will need to confirm.

In general, apple products nvr go on major discounts like other electronics, at most 10-15% off i think. Of course the lower the price, the lower the discounts.

As for traditional chinese handwriting, yes it does have that input in ios7, i just tried it on my ipad3, just need to add the chinese handwriting keyboard in settings.

I haven't seen the mini R on sale yet but the first versions are on sale everywhere.
The iPad Air but ONLY in the 16GB version is also on sale in a few places. Target seems to have the best deal at $499 plus a $100 gift card.

the Ipad Mini Retina is so brand new and supplies appear to be low (factory issues with screen?) I doubt you'll see these on sale for a while. From the looks of things, the iPad Air in 16GB only will be the version that goes on sale.

Target does have a $15 gift card off a $75 purchase. If you can combine that with the 5% Red Card from Target then perhaps it works out to a decent deal for the mini R.
