I've seen the current Best Buy iPad trade in offer. Has anyone heard of any other promos for trading in iPads? We upgraded my wife's iPad 2 to iOS8, and it has turned into quite a slug. If I can't find anything else, I might trade in her iPad 2 at Best Buy for $150 and get her the iPad mini 2.

Since I have seen some more of the new specs, I would really like to see AT&T offer a trade in deal. I would give her my Air and trade in hers for a new Air 2 for me. I checked and AT&T is only offering $90 her an iPad 2 right now.

The Best Buy deal is a minimum of $200, which is great when you're considering trading a 16GB iPad 2. I've heard the movers coupon can be used for an additional 10 percent. That makes for a fantastic deal on the iPad Air 2.

My daughter's iPad 2 is getting pretty worn. It only lasts about 4 hours on a full charge now. She has used it a lot for several years. We will probably get her the iPad Air for Christmas and trade in the 2. I noticed in Target's ad today that they give $150 for any working iPad 2 or newer as a trade. I hadn't check Best Buy but $200 would be awesome. I'll be watching the ads as Christmas gets closer, but I'd be real happy with $200.

Wonder why the BestBuy offer would only give me $163 for my iPad 3 (16gb wifi)
I got the email, like millions of others, saying $200 and it doesn't appear to be the case at all.

I'd hold out trading it in now. I bet there will some better trade in deals during the holiday season (similar to last years's Target offer).

I just updated to an iPad 4 and have an extra iPad 2 that I'm not currently using, so I'm hopeful there will be some good trade in offers soon...

I just trade in my 5s and my iPad 2 At bestbuy . Picked up 64gb wifi for $126. Bestbuy gave me $300 for 5s and $162 for my iPad plus $50 coupon. Apple wanting to give me a lot less for everything. Sense the iPad Air 2 is smaller by 1/2 then iPad 2 have to go and get new case for it.

I guess the iPad 1 (original) is completely out of the running?! :(
Your best bet for the iPad 1 was last year when Target was offering $200 for it. It's probably worth less than $50 now, so I'd say hold onto it and try to find some other use for it.

You may get lucky with another promo during the holidays, but I doubt it...

Darn. I guess I missed the $200 trade-in last year, or I would have jumped on it. I think it might make a good cutting board now.

Went to Target yesterday and traded my wife's Apple refurb iPad 2 for $150. Then got the iPad mini retina (last year model). Couldn't do Best Buy because reports were that the refurb wasn't in their trade in catalog. I did get 5% from the red card discount.

I just returned from Best Buy. Traded in my 64GB iPad 4th Generation towards a 128GB iPad Air 2. My trade was worth $287 under the current promo and since I was purchasing a new Air 2, I received an additional $50.00 towards the purchase. Not too shabby at all. I would barely have sold it on Ebay for that and by the time the fees were deducted from Ebay, PayPal and shipping I would have done far worse trying to sell it outright. The Air 2 is an very nice upgrade from the 4th gen. Very, very happy with the deal and my purchase.

Any kind of promo still going on for an iPad mini 1? I have an iPhone 5 to trade in too.

Wouldn't mind picking up an iPad Air 2

I traded in my 16g original mini 2 weeks ago and got $150 at best buy and got a mini 3. I am very happy with it!
