Microsoft Store Pays $200 in Store Credit for ‘Gently Used’ iPads

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.

    I'm pretty sure it's more than just this… but I can't help but think they're doing this so they can beat the PS4 on price without cutting the price of the XBO.

    Trade it in for an MS tablet?… nah. Ipads, despite the constant update in models, end up lasting longer than others. 

    An android tablet is outdated within WEEKS, and MS probably will follow that run. 

    Granted this makes them cheaper, but also lower quality.

    I won't really attack the Android stuff much, as they're pretty awesome. But they outdate faster than video cards.

    Iphone/Ipad 2 years later is still capable of fetching $200+ on Ebay well after the new models are out and assimilated by the masses.

    Android/MS…. buttkiss….

    Example, I nailed $200 for my Iphone 4 16gb only 6 months ago. not 4s, just 4.

    Paid all but taxes on my upgrade to the 5 :p
