Does the iPad 2 you bought when it was the latest and greatest thing now feel as outdated as your mom's paisley bell bottoms? If you're dying to upgrade but short on cash, Best Buy is coming to your rescue.
This weekend only, trade in your iPad 2 or third generation iPad at participating Best Buy locations and you'll receive a Best Buy gift card worth $200 - maybe more if your device is still in killer condition. A fourth generation iPad starts at $499 right now, but the trade-in brings your out of pocket cost down to $299, or lower if your trade-in is worth more. If you'd rather trade for an iPad Mini, your out of pocket cost will drop to just $129.
Or, if you're a college student, sign up for Best Buy's College Student Deals program and combine your $200 credit with a $100 discount on iMacs and Macbooks, including the Macbook Air. Finding discounts on any Apple products is a rare thing, so if you're a student in the market for a Macbook this is a pretty sweet option.
The trade-in offer is available only in-store and only on July 12-13 (that's today and tomorrow!), so get thee to a Best Buy retail location, stat!
P.S. Best Buy has promised to recycle all traded-in iPads, so rest easy knowing yours won't end up in a landfill.
