If you’re still holding onto an old iPad(s aapl) take note: Right now Target(s tgt) is offering a minimum of $200 for trading in your old iPad, even a first-generation model. For users of some older model iPads, that’s a pretty great deal.
According to Target’s trade-in site, all you have to do is find your local Target mobility store, bring in your old iPad and have it appraised. At the very least, you will be given a $200 Target gift card, which doesn’t need to be used towards the purchase of a new iPad. If your iPad is worth more, the gift card amount will be increased accordingly.
If you’re thinking about trading in your old iPad, it still pays to shop around online at sites like Gazelle. You can also check out my overview of trading in your old iPhone for an idea of where you might also find the best rates for your tablet. But you probably won’t find a better deal than $200 for a first-generation iPad model.
Gazelle, for instance, is currently offering $80 for a first-generation 16GB Wi-Fi iPad in flawless condition. Granted, you’ll be getting that $80 in cash as opposed to a gift card, but Target’s promotion is well worth considering if you have an older iPad. Just make sure to do it quick, as the offer only lasts until Saturday, November 9.
