While it’s not the newest iPad around, it is still a bargain at $299, and the $100 Gift Card can be used to buy other gifts on your list.

It is also worth noting that a few retailers have smartphone trade-in programs running which could save you some money if you’re looking for an iPhone 5c or 5s. Wal-Mart and Radio Shack are offering up to $300 in credit when you trade in an older smartphone, and sign a new two-year contract. Keep in mind this means up to $300, with pricing depending on model and condition. Radio Shack is only offering trade-ins for iPhone models, while Wal-Mart offers trad-ins on devices of all stripes.
