    Default Best Buy: $200 Gift Card for Your iPad


    For two days only this weekend, you can trade in your iPad at Best Buy for a $200 Best Buy gift card.

    Beginning today (Friday) and lasting through Saturday, customers can take advantage of the promotion, which is available at all Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores that accept trade-ins. The company, we're told, will recycle all tablets.

    All Things D confirmed that the surprisingly quiet promotion is only for customers who can trade in a working iPad 2 or 3. In return, they will receive at least a $200 gift card. As you might expect, customers also have the option of upgrading to an iPad with Retina display.

    Best Buy said it decided to launch this promotion based on the success of its iPhone trade-in event last month. Though Best Buy wouldn’t disclose how many people participated in the program, the company said there was an “overwhelming response” and that its initial June 1 event was the single biggest day for its trade-in business.
    So if you're wanting to dump an old iPad you're no longer using in return for a couple hundred bucks good for some new gear or goodies at Best Buy, this weekend could provide a great opportunity to do just that.

    So if they're just recycling them, does that mean they'll take ipads in any condition? There's tons of old broken iPads all over for sale for less than $200. I'd go sweep up as many as I could and make some $

    Guess what, just about ANYONE would give you $200 for a working iPad 2 because that's less than market value. They aren't recycling them, hence why they have to be working, they will sell them to poor countries.

    The best buy near me said the $200 gift card has to go to purchasing a new ipad. Can't spend it on anything in the store which blows.
