So next time you are standing in line and you hear someone say that they are all out of iPad’s stay in line, even when others start to leave. If you’re lucky enough people will leave and you could end up first in line.
Method 2: Find the Vacant Store
Best Buy along with Apple retail stores are selling the iPad 2. So rather then rushing to the Apple store on Times Square why don’t you visit the Best Buy in the suburbs? Or check out the Apple retail store in the mall. Chances are those stores will have smaller lines. No the stores will not get the large supplies of iPad 2′s but will get a nice minimum.
Method 3: Buy the Ebay way!
This might me an expensive option but the option still works. Rather then having to wait yourself people have done the work for you and charge you a few hundred dollars as a premium. Many of these people offer free expedited shipping.
Method 4: Hire a Teenager
Many teens would not mind spending their weekend waiting in line for the iPad 2. Pay them $200 and you’ve got your weekend back!
Method 5: Find Someone in Line
This method allows you to find someone in line that would not mind buying the iPad 2 for you. You can spot them an extra $100 for the trouble and they could call you once they purchase it. This can be most effective if you have a friend buying the iPad 2. If it’s a friend you may be able to get away with just buying them lunch.
All of these methods are only possibilities. Method 4 & 5 are risky with strangers but can be used. iPadnGravy is not responsible for any losses or problems with these methods. Good luck with your iPad 2 hunt!
