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

Price:
$336.97*
Expiry:
December 2, 2019
Retailer:
RBC Rewards
Hi all,

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.

Cheers,

Thanks for this heads up! I really had to dig through the RBC Rewards pages until it finally offered me the 30% off. Using your 20% minimum points figure, I got the 128 GB Wifi only iPad for 13 362 points and $347.40. It seems like money well spent to me for what you get, i.e. essentially a brand new beater iPad, but others can chime in.

won't let me do it for the 128GB just the 32GB.....i've got a 32GB in an earlier model and i find its just not quite enough space so not sure why it wont let me buy the 128GB outright without the minimum points....

seems its only a good deal if you want the 32GB but i'd be interested to know if anyone else has luck with the 128GB

Worked for me with the 128 gig model. I only got 25% off cause I don't have an avion card though. Still a great deal, only used 20% points as well. Only works with the new base iPad though, you cant use it with the Pro or anything else. I used the RBC rewards app on my iPhone to do everything.

Interesting as i've got an Avion card but not at least 20% points and it wouldn't even give me the option to purchase cash only, whereas i could do it with the 32 gig model....

Hmmm.... I just ordered a Galaxy Tab S6 from Staples (8GB RAM, 256GB storage) for a lot more money. I'm an Android user and not an Apple fan but at this price, I'm wondering if I should get this instead...

I'd have to get the 128GB Cellular one as I'd want the GPS functionality which works out to $503. That's just over $200 less after tax than the Galaxy Tab S6. Not sure though if I could get by with 128GB of storage as I'd want 256GB if there is no microSD.

Man, the pocket book really takes a beating this time of year...

Do you have at least 20% points? Or just did the trick?

In the app it says "$290.85 is the maximum amount you can apply to a card for this order." Is there any way to get around this? Maybe forget the app and go through online self serve?

You need to have 20% points to get it I called RBC

You can see above that my order stated “available to ship in 6 - 10 days,” but it actually shipped via UPS 2 hours ago. I hope others can take advantage of this deal. I still have 210 000 points on my business Avion, but using the minimum points seemed to make the most sense.

Wondering the same thing. The website gives a price using points or outright but you are forced to use some points.
