Customers can trade-in old iPads at Target for big money with Target's new trade-in program. With this trade-in program a customer will get as much as $200.00 for any model, according to a Nov 4 report in LifeHacker. This is a great opportunity for consumers with old iPads, like first, second or third generation models, to get big money for ancient hardware.
Target's trade-in program for old iPads only lasts for this week though, thru Nov 9. Customers can trade-in their old iPad at a Target store or online. Only Target stores with Mobility Centers will accept trade-ins at Target stores, however. Customers can see if which of their local Target stores has a Mobility Center by visiting the Target trade-in web page and then simply entering their Zip Code, checking the check box labeled “Target Mobile” and the “Find a Store” button.
Once a customer brings his or her old iPad to a Target store with a Mobility Center, Target will give the customer a gift card for as much as $200.00, which the customer can redeem at any Target store for anything (if doesn't have to be for the new iPad Air). The good thing about bringing an old iPad to a Target store with a Mobility Center is that the customer gets a gift card immediately.
If a customer wants to trade-in an old iPad online, he or she can visit this Target trade-in page. When customers opt for trading-in their old iPad online, they get their gift cards through the mail after they ship (postage paid by Target) their old iPad to Target.
Whether customers trade-in their old iPads at a Target retail store with a Mobility Center or at the Target online trade-in page, the old iPad being traded-in must be fully functional (meaning it powers on, detects a Wi-Fi connection and has audio), has Find My iPad deactivated (see how to do in “How to Sell Your iPad for Cash or Credit”) and has a screen without cracks or dead spots.
There are five easy steps which consumers should take to protect your data before they trade-in their iPads, which they can see in “How to Sell Your iPad for Cash or Credit”.
What's so great about this Target trade-in program is that Target is still selling a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad Air for a $20.00 discount, just $479.00 (like Walmart is). This means that if customers apply their their $200.00 gift card that they get by trading-in their old iPads, to this $479.00 discounted price, consumers will only pay $279.00 for a brand new 16GB Wi-Fi iPad Air—which normally sells at $499.00.
