HUGE hidden sale on iPads

Did anyone notice BB having $100 gift cards for only 80 bucks? And did anyone notice apple is having 50-70 dollars of the new iPad 4's?

So I was thinking, why not go to best buy, buy 8 $100 gift cards for only $640, and buy a discounted apple iPad on a 50-70 dollar sale for about 200 dollars cheaper than normal price?

iPhone 4S 16GB - iPad 2 64GB WiFi - iPad 4 32GB WiFi + AT&T Cellular - i7 MacBook Pro late 11 - Transformer Prime TF201 32GB
Game Center - Pman3255 , OpenFeint - Pman55 , Plus+ - Pman3255

I think you are talking about itunes gcs which can't be used for apple purchases like ipads.

You can use iTunes gift card money to buy things like iPads and such through the apple store app if you have money.

Don't take my complete word on it, but I am pretty sure that the info is true.

iTunes and Apple giftcards are not the same thing. iTunes cards can only be used for digital content.

It's ok, it was a good idea. If it worked, it would have been great.

Meh good idea, too much work. That is a solid idea, but the best buy sale for those cards went on for 3 days. One could assume that a ton of people snagged them if they really wanted them, so it is kind of a risk.
