Buy last year‘s 9.7-inch iPad at Walmart for 25% off

If you‘re in the market for an iPad (and you can‘t see yourself using an Apple Pencil), you shouldn‘t rule out last year‘s 9.7-inch model.

Normally these discounts only get you down to 280 or so (down from the usual retail of 330), but Walma

The first chap I meet in the Summerset Isles is an elf with a Sean Penn face who gripes about how he‘s missing out on a wine tasting because some local Wood Elves ‘offed‘ the vintner, because of course. This, after all, is the closed beta for The Elder Scrolls Online‘s Summerset expansion (40 on Amazon), which whisks us off to the ancestral homes of the High Elves, a magical land crammed with haughty wizards, Neuschwans
