Long story short, I hit the lottery at Best Buy by returning an iPod Classic 160 GB and received $95 more then it currently sells for. Because of this, I have to purchase my iPad at Best Buy. Any info on when they will get a supply of Wi-Fi iPads at Best Buy? They didn't know much about it in the store.

I was wondering the same. And also for those of you who have an Apple store near by, is there any in display or any that people can actually try?

Best put in a preorder with best buy if you actually want one in the first shipment of ipads to best buy. They could be pre-order sold out.

Don't forget to buy the Best Buy extended three year warranty and get the Best Buy 'optimization' of your new iPad by the Geek Squad. They will also have a boat load of Best Buy iPad accessories and a special iPad USB power cable for $50 that you may buy. I think they even have a Best Buy iPad application that automatically links you to their store if you think of anything else.

Did I forget anything about the Best Buy iPad experience?

Will Best Buy have a restocking fee?

They have done away with restocking fees. They still keep the 14 day return on most of these electronics though.

I will point out that if you are a Reward Zone Silver Member, you can return ANY item in the store up to 45 days if you are not satisfied.... mind you the basic return rules still apply (has to be in like new shape, all accessories, etc. They will have to be able to at least resell it as open box).

Do you work for Best Buy? If they have done away with restocking fee's that is a very good thing.

What does it take to be a Reward Zone Silver?

No, I don't work for Best Buy. I have spoken with employees many times (in my local stores, as well as out of state stores I have visited), as well as returned my fair share of items that I was not satisfied with. In fact I even hear them pitching the no restocking fee as a boon to buy something from them.

I believe to be Reward Silver you have to spend like 2500 dollars or more in a year.
