RBC Rewards doesn't allow buying 32gb iPad Air 2

The Apple website has the 32GB iPad Air 2 available to purchase, but if you browse the Apple section through the RBC Rewards site, it only has the 128GB iPad Air 2. Is this done on purpose? Any way around it?

Have you contacted RBC Rewards about this? Would seem like the likely first course of action....

Why is it that no one except Apple.ca seems to have 32gb iPad Air 2 ??
WTF is up with the random inconsistent sizes? Everyone has something different.

Apple just re-adjusted its iPad Air 2 line so that it only comes in 32 and 128GB now. The stores that have 16 and 64 are still selling through their previous stock and will likely wait to sell those before ordering the 32GB models.

Yeah I just saw this here.

I think my best bet is to just buy it directly from Apple with my RBC Visa and pay down my visa with the RBC points using the "Payback with Points" option.

They only offer bigger sizes as they can charge you more points. Aka bigger profit margin for them. They're not an official store, so why should they carry every size available?

This was my assumption as well. It makes sense.
