    After buying the air 2 it's time to go out with the old. It has a small dent in the frame, but works great, what's the fair price on this? Thinking of listing on Craigslist.

    eBay's median price is around $220-230 (16 GB wifi model third generation iPad). BestBuy has a trade-in offer where you can get $150 and then an additional amount depending on what you're buying: $25 for an iPad mini 3, or $50 for an iPad Air 2.

    I haven't been monitoring prices on Craigslist, but hopefully those numbers are helpful to you.

    I tried selling mine on Craigslist (32GB LTE great condition), and the most I could get for it was $250. Decided to give it to my sister. :rolleyes:

    Personally I feel as if $250 is a very very generous price for this. I was considering selling mine to best buy for 160.

    I hope to get at least $200 from someone and get a Black Friday deal on the ipad air 2.

    You should generally expect to lose 40% of value compounded every year. Assuming that you bought your 32GB Cellular iPad 3 for $679, and given that it was launched 2.5 years ago, the price is roughly 679 * .6 * .6 * .8 = ~$196 at the most. Add the dent, and $150-$170 is actually quite reasonable.

    An iPad 3 should have a higher resale value if it's running iOS 5 or iOS 6. :)

    I just traded in my iPad 3 to Best Buy today. Their guarantee is that you'll get at least $150 + a $50 coupon toward an iPad Air 2. For my 16 GB iPad 3 (wifi only) they gave me $167 + $50 coupon. That is probably more than I would have gotten from eBay. I'm pleased.

    I traded mine in at Best Buy - a 32GB white Verizon Gen 3. I got a $185 gift card + a $50 coupon for a total of $235 back. I felt that was a great deal.

    Turned that into an Air 2 64GB for a meager $364.

    Well considering the iPad 3 is the unwanted stepchild, anything you get for it is better than nothing!
