    Trade in your iPad Air or iPad Air 2 and get a $200 gift card to apply towards the purchase of a 32GB iPad Pro. This has to be one of the worst deals I've seen. No way should you trade your iPad in for only $200. Especially an iPad Air 2! I can't be the only one that thinks this is ridiculous.

    This thread is really useful





    ...aside from the fact it's misleading, futile click bait. :rolleyes:

    Wait, you get the same amount whether you trade in an Air1 or Air2? Really? Link, please.

    This is a terrible deal. A few months ago BB was offering a $200 trade-in credit for any working tablet when purchasing a Surface Pro 4.

    Here's the link: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/clp/ipad-pro-trade-in-offer/pcmcat748301415014.c?id=pcmcat748301415014

    It appears that maybe the gift card is up to $200. I put in a 64GB iPad Air 2 with Cellular and it only gave me an amount of like $180, which is completely ridiculous.

    When I seen that it was $599 I was like "Oh cool!" And then I seen the information about the trade-in and couldn't believe it. I really hope no one would actually do this, as you can get way more selling on your own. I guess there are those who don't want to deal with the hassle and don't care about what they're losing, but there's no way that I would do it.

    Hmm. I just went here http://www.apple.com/shop/browse/reuse_and_recycle
    And punched in a 128GB LTE Air2 in perfect condition and got $225. So I guess Apple is paying $25 more than BestBuy.

    You're better off selling your iPad on Swappa and making at least 2x that and applying that money towards your IPP.

    I sold my iPad Air 2 64GB with Cellular for $420 on there a few weeks ago. Fairly simple. I actually bought an Apple Watch Sport and returned it and bought the stainless steel model off of there and saved money.

    Super easy. I've bought and sold quite a few things from there. All you need to do is setup an account take some pictures of your device, I've found the more pictures you have the quicker it sells.. I'd say most of the Apple stuff I've listed sells the same day.

    I definitely agree that the more pictures you post the better.
