Best Buy expected to begin Apple iPad 2 Promotion today
According to a leaked internal Memo, Best Buy is about to start a nation wide iPad 2 promotion beginning today. Recently there was some rumor that the retailer had annoyed Apple by holding on to iPad 2 stocks, but this was then denied.
Best Buy is expected to restart taking reserve orders for the device for at least a week after the sales promotion. The memo which was originally leaked by Engadget states the promotion will begin on April 17, and ordering system for reserving the iPad 2 will also be switched back on. It is thought that some stores will have a minimum of three iPad 2s.
In the memo, Best Buy says that it will take iPad 2 reservations for “the entire week of the ad, possibly longer.” Best Buy employees will be allowed to purchase iPad 2s. The memo states that reserved units will not be held for longer than 48. Apple’s online store is still listing two- to three-week wait times for iPad 2 orders. So if you’re thinking about purchasing the tablet, Sunday might be a good time to head to your local Best Buy.
Now the question is what else Best Buy offering as part of the iPad 2 Promotion. Maybe the store will be giving away some goodies with the device like a free case or something.
