Since you're in New York City, you can check B&N for any possible specials. As others have said, the price of the iPad (new ones, anyway) isn't really discounted -- though some merchants will offer a gift card on some occasions.

Here's a handy guide to prices at the moment: AppleInsider | News and rumors since 1997

As you can see, nothing much going on (but as its a hot new product, that's to be expected). For a 16GB iPad Air, I notice that Staples and Walmart and MacMall have it for $20 off. That's currently the best deal on a new model available -- if you were willing to travel to New Hampshire to get it from say Staples, you'd also save sales tax (IIRC they don't charge sales tax there). That would provide an additional "discount" that might even pay for the gas ...
