microsoftipad121If you have an iPad, Microsoft wants it and is willing to give you some dough in exchange.

ipadsurfaceMicrosoft’s newest deal allows people to trade in a “gently-used” iPad 2, 3, or 4 for a $200 gift card to the Microsoft store.

The deal started Sept. 5 and runs until Oct. 27. To get your gift card, you’ll have to actually go into a physical U.S. and Canadian Microsoft stores, as the deal is not applicable online.

On the details about the offer, Microsoft encourages people who are looking to upgrade their tablet to “check out the Surface RT or Surface Pro.”

    Desperation.

    I don’t want a $200 gift card to the MSFT store. Amazon.com maybe, then I can buy a Nexus 7.

      Wow, how long did you waste coming up with that useless troll?

    $200 is less than you could get on Ebay for any of these, so I don’t see this generating much traffic. Chalk this up as trolling for pr coverage and little else.

      Yup. Maybe the convenience factor of in-store vs Ebay makes the iPad2 a wash, but not the 3 or 4. It’s getting some press though, so someone at MS will slap a #missionaccomplished on it.

    Taylor, I believe the promotion states that customers will receive a “minimum $200″ gift card for their iPad, implying that newer models will fetch a higher trade in value. I think your article makes this unclear.
