My dd has been asking for an iPad for over 12 months. I told her yesterday if she could save up half the money I would pay the other half. She's very keen to do it. I need some ideas of chores for her and how much the going rate is these days. Making bed and cleaning bedroom are out as I think they should just do that anyway. I'm not worried about how long it takes her to save this is a bit of a lesson that work = money and so she will appreciate it a whole lot more knowing she's worked for it.
