In what many will surely take as a "no way!" story, a lucky guy strolls into a Goodwill and finds a brand-new, in the box, fully functioning iPad 2 with a price tag of merely $65.

Let us review. iPad 2. Brand new. $65. There are no typos in that price.

The find of a lifetime was discovered by Reddit user djrjr in Robinson Township, Pa. I guess his link karma really paid off:

I am a constant shopper at Goodwill, they get a fair amount of money from me for everyday things. The thing is if I hadn't bought it would've sold almost instantly for the same price. I don't feel dirty or shameful buying it from them, I checked with the manager twice to make sure this was correct and he insisted that it was right. I even told him how much it is worth and he still said that was the right price. I donate old/unwanted items to Goodwill a lot too so I'll sleep fine tonight.

Yes. I, too, would sleep well at night knowing that I found an iPad 2 for $65. There is no information about how the device ended up on Goodwill's shelves in the first place. Generally you aren't going to find a lot of new items (especially from a brand like Apple) at a Goodwill store.

I love a nice Goodwill run, and its stories like these that justify me going back. What's the best deal you've found at Goodwill? Let me know in the comments!
