Options to purchase many of the mini size of the iPad
November 19, 2012 6:24 AM Subscribe
I want to give out the mini size of the iPad (the 16Gb Wifi) as a Christmas bonus to our employees, the most that the Corporate Gifts & Rewards division of Apple will sell to us is 10, so that is 10 accounted for. How likely is it that we will be able to cobble together the remaining 40 through multiple other orders.

From testing online through Apple store chat it looks like you can bypass the 2 maximum per order by special request and buy 4 at one time. Do they check aggressively for multiple orders, or is the whole restricted availability an attempt to keep an exclusive aura around the product and we will have no problem getting all we need. We are planning a couple of trips to the Apple store, couple of online orders using company and personal credit cards, trips to Best Buy, etc.
Also does anyone know what the stock situation is like? If we are doing this we have to make it to 50, failing at 21 would be a disaster. Plan is to have them all on way or in hand before Wednesday in case there is a Thanksgiving sellout. We will be giving the out in the first week of December. We are in the Bay Area.
