Here’s some good news if you want to trade in an old iPad. Best Buy is restarting an iPad trade-in program, after having briefly piloted one earlier in the month. The current deal will get you a “minimum” $200 Best Buy gift card, which is meant to go toward the purchase of a fourth-generation iPad.
That’s if you trade in an undamaged iPad 2 or third-gen iPad. The promotion is from today through August 3rd at Best Buys retail outlets. Unless you have been living under a rock, Apple is expected to launch a fifth-gen iPad this fall, maybe as soon as September or October.
This might be Best Buy’s way of clearing out fourth-gen stock, so they don’t get stuck with them when the new one comes out.
