30% off select iPads 10.2" for Avioners and 25% for other RBC rewards cards

Here is an iPad deal for RBC rewards members, 30% off new 10.2" iPad for those with Avion cards and 25% off for those that have other RBC rewards cards. This is similar to the 9.7" iPad deal in July 2018, or may even be better since this is for a new model that just came out and I believe the discount is even better.
Here's the breakdown for 10.2" 32GB Wifi model (see attached screenshot too):
Original price 66,000 points or $429
30% off = 46,199 points or $300.30
Taxes (12% in BC) = 5,554 points or $36.11
Fees = 86 points or $0.56
Total = 51,839 points or $336.97 (which I believe is the lowest I've seen anywhere, cheaper than the recent Source deal)
You can split the payment and pay with minimum of 20% points and the rest on your credit card.
20% points = 10,368 points plus $269.56
Something to try, like last year's RBC Rewards iPad deal, is for those that have accounts that have less points than the 20% minimum. If you are able to checkout without using any points, the total for the iPad would be $336.97. Since I have more points than the minimum requirement I can't check if they will allow it. Last year there was a glitch where you just refreshed a bunch of times and even if you had more than enough points, you could just check out without spending any points.
Even spending the 20% points, you are getting a return of 2% for those points when compared to purchasing at regular price of $429, which isn't too bad at all, especially if you are looking for a new iPad. I haven't had time to look at the higher models, so feel free to chime in on that.
