All the damn time. Every medical journal, CME service, and medical supply company has some such crap. If you order the gold-level service you get an iPad-mini, go with the platinum and you get an iPad. My wife has seen it from companies selling school nurse supplies in bulk
Of course, the iPad isn't really "free." Its cost is figured into whatever they're charging you for the purchase, or they're taking a slight loss hoping to get you as a loyal customer (doesn't work, guys. Ask any pharmacist who's forced to hand out gift cards to people who transfer a prescription).
But I digress.
Anyway, my point here is that pretty much EVERY professional level product is often sold with a "get a free iPad" gimmick.
Including, apparently, rats.
Yes, lab researchers, now you too can get a free iPad with your order of research rodents. Need some transgenic rats to test antibiotics? You've got an iPad-Mini! Doing cancer research on knockout rats? Get an iPad!

Be sure to use the promo code, which ingeniously is RatPadB13.
After all, with an iPad you don't need a mouse.
Thank you, Caillin!
