It seems like a lot of companies are getting in on the iPad
trade-in action, including Microsoft, Best Buy, and now Target
. From now until November 9th, you can take your old (but working and unscratched) iPad to Target and swap it for at least $200. That means you could potentially get more than that, depending on the age and condition of the iPad.
The $200 will take the form of a Target Trade-In Gift Card, but you shouldn’t have any trouble finding $200 worth of merchandise you want or need at Target. (They have groceries now, for crying out loud.)
Target has a running program where you can trade in old electronics such as PCs, cameras, and the iPhone
, but this deal is huge. For example, if you run through the online calculator, you’ll find that a typical trade-in for a 16GB WiFi
first-gen iPad in good working order with an unsullied screen is only $39. If you take that same iPad to a participating Target location in the next few days, you could get $200, instead.
Best Buy has a similar deal running
, although they’ll only accept 3rd-gen and newer iPads and the iPad mini, and Microsoft recently ran a promotion
where you could trade your new-ish iPad in for a minimum of $200 towards a Surface tablet.
