iPad 3rd Generation Sell-off?

Does anyone happen to know what's going to happen to all those in-stock 3rd Gen iPads? I'm hoping to pick one up from Apple.ca or local Apple Store for a discount. Has to be an Apple Store as I've been saving up Apple Gift Cards.

So far it just looks like the ability to purchase the 3rd Gen online has been removed and there are no 3rd Gen WiFi only (well except for the 64GB) available on the refurb list.

Has anyone inquired at an Apple 'brick and mortar' Store of they're being sold at a discount? I tried calling the store but couldn't get through.

Thanks!
J.

Starting at $459 i believe, so slight sale but not much. Might be more of a sale next week when the 4th gen is in stock.

Thanks Dr. Al.

I was really hoping to pick up a refurb one online but it now turns out that you cannot use Apple Gift Cards on the Canadian online Apple Store. They are for in-store use only. Ugh. Another "US only" feature for goodness sake.

Anyone know if you can order refurbs from a physical Apple Store?

$449 at Best Buy. Seems all 3rd gen models are $70 off their old prices, although iPad prices have dropped $20 so you're just saving $50 in the end.

I asked this at a store once and was told online only. This was over a year ago, although I doubt it has changed.

I saw 16GB Wi-fi at Future Shop for $419 plus taxes yesterday.

Yea Apple Gift Cards can't be used online. I wanted to pre-order my iPad 3 with GC, but was forced to line up on launch day. I don't think you can get refurbs in store.. Totally sucks for you

Hmm, I turn to Apple shop online some days before(maybe the day after Apple release iPad mini), but I got that the shop "not available now". And now there are not an iPad 3 gen, only have iPad mini, iPad 2 and the newer iPad(with Retina display).
