Why wait for Amazon Prime Day when you can score an incredible deal on Apple's 10.2-inch iPad today? The retailer has the 9th generation tablet on sale for a record-low price of just $249 (was $329) when you apply the $20 coupon at checkout. That's a total savings of $80 and an incredible price for a powerful Apple iPad.

Apple's 2021 iPad 10.2 includes the speedy A13 Bionic chip and packs 64GB of storage, which allows you to store plenty of movies, apps, and games. The 9th generation tablet received an upgraded 12-megapixel front camera and includes Apple's Center Stage feature to help you stay in the frame during video calls. You also get a 10.2-inch Retina display, support for the Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard, and all-day battery life.

The best part about today's deal, aside from the price, is that, unlike Prime Day's upcoming deals, today's offer doesn't require a Prime membership, which means everyone can grab this record-low price. We've only spotted this $249 price tag briefly back in March, and we don't expect Amazon to drop the price any further at the official Prime Day sale, so if you're looking for a cheap iPad, you should grab this fantastic deal now before it's too late.
