Welcome back to our weekly deal roundup, where I scour the internet for the best deals, sales and freebies you can get over the weekend. If you come across an excellent deal that you think everyone should see, feel free to get in touch -- my email address is at the bottom of the article.

There are two major retailers offering discounts on iPads this week. Best Buy (BBY) is taking big discounts on its entire stock of the third-generation iPads; the 16 GB, wifi-only iPad can now be had for just $315; it was originally price at $500 when it came out last March. Keep in mind that this is not the most recent version of the iPad, as it was succeeded by the fourth-generation model less than a year after release. Also note that it's not available for delivery -- you have to pick it up at the store.
Meanwhile, Walmart (WMT)is discounting the 16 GB, wifi-only iPad Mini: Originally priced at $329, it can now be had for $299. Note that these sorts of discounts on older-generation Apple products tend to mean that we're getting new versions soon, so don't be surprised if we see new iPads in the next month or two.

RetailMeNot alerts us to a $10-off coupon for Domino's Pizza (DPZ). It will be available on Friday only, and there's a limit of 10,000 uses for the code, which must be used for an order on Dominos.com. Most notably, there's no minimum purchase requirement, which means you're in for some very cheap -- possibly free! -- pizza. Head over there and enter your email address to be notified as soon as the coupon code becomes available.

Finally, there are a few food freebies taking place over the weekend and early next week. FreebieFindingMom alerts us that Tuesday, April 9 is Free Cone Day at Ben & Jerry's locations; just stop by a participating location to get your free ice cream cone. Meanwhile, Pinkberry is promoting its new Greek-style offerings; show this Facebook post at Pinkberry on Friday or Saturday to get a free blueberry almond Greek yogurt, and stop by between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. every Wednesday this month to get any regular sized pinkberrygreek offering.

I clicked the Best Buy link to the iPad sale and BBY's website showed the sale price but When I added the iPad to my cart, the price reverted back to the regular price.

Even with numerous calls and emails to their customer service, showing the sale price on their website, they still didn't honor the sale price. This goes to show the difference of so so company vs a great company who values customer service excellence!
