To counter AT&T's offer of a free month of data with the purchase of a new iPad 2 or original iPad, Verizon stores are offering the first-generation iPad at a heavy discount--the Wi-Fi-only option is priced at just $299.

Checking online, AT&T's offer is clearly available, but there is no mention of the deal on Verizon's Web site.

The news comes from The Appera, an iPhone and iPad gaming site, citing deals site Slickdeals reporting that Verizon corporate stores are participating in the discount for original iPads until they sell through their stock.

Check out Verizon's original iPad pricing below and if you're near a store and looking to get in on the iPad mania, this may be the perfect time:

  • 16GB iPad with Wi-Fi: $299
  • 32GB iPad with Wi-Fi: $399
  • 64GB iPad with Wi-Fi: $499

Are you going to grab an original iPad, throw down on a new one, or wait until iPad 3? Let me know in the comments!
