    Hey guys I've tried and posted it on so many sites already, but no one was interested in doing a trade.

    Was wondering if any you guys knew about any more sites where I could try to trade my 16GB Black iPad mini for an iPad 3. I've tried craigslist already, but absolutely nothing has come up. Also, was wondering if anyone in this forum was interested.

    Don't get me wrong I love the iPad mini, it's just that I need the larger and retina screen to read large PDFs for my classes this semester.

    You can't trade or sell here as a new member.
    You just have to wait it out. With the rumors of a new model in March, some may be sitting back waiting to see what happens.

    I'm sorry, I'll keep that in mind for next time.

    I'm sorry but I don't think someone that spent 500 or more on an iPad 3 when it came out is going to want to trade you for an iPad mini that you spent 329 on. The absolute cheapest I have seen iPad threes was on apples refurbished section of their website for 379. I think you'll have better luck selling the mini and just buying a used or refurbished iPad 3.

    Good luck

    This. A trade straight would a loss for the 3 owner. However I've seen ipad4 users regretting getting a 4 instead of mini try pming them :p

    You're going to need to offer cash with that trade. Probably about $50-$75 will do it. If I had a 3, I wouldn't do a straight trade for a mini. I would do the trade, just with cash.

    Sell it for cash and then put it towards a new iPad. By putting it up for a trade you're artificially decreasing the population of who will be willing to take your iPad.

    You'd be surprise, i would have traded for sure, Ive just sold my ipad3 16gb for a mini. Some people just prefer the smaller size.

    i sold my 3 for $400 and bought the mini, however if someone offered me a mini for the 3 I'd say #@$@ off unless you want to pay me $70 extra with the trade.

    This seems like the best idea.
