In a highly competitive promotion against Apple's favorite tablet, Microsoft has decided to give consumers willing to turn in that old iPad a couple of hundred bucks in their store – presumably to spend on their Surface tablet… The promotion, which runs until October 27, allows people to trade in their "gently used" iPad 2, 3, or 4 tablets to receive a minimum of a $200 gift card to the Microsoft Store.
The promotion is only available at the Microsoft Stores in the United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. This is not an online promotion, which means that you have to live relatively close to one of the store locations in your country in order to take part.
To be eligible for the trade-in deal, your iPad must include a power cord and must not be password-protected.
