AppleInsider has news today of a special promotion from Best Buy this weekend that kicks off today and runs through until Saturday, and which lets customers trade in their old iPad 2 and 3 for a $200 gift voucher that can be used against the price of a new iPad. So, with a 16GB iPad currently costing $499.99 from Best Buy, this would mean you could get a brand new iPad for just $299.99! And in fact you could save even more money, depending on the condition of your iPad, as AppleInsider says that Best Buy has said that it is prepared to offer more than the minimum $200 for iPads that are in tip-top condition. However, they did not give an upper limit for how much they would be prepared to pay for a mint-condition iPad, so you’ll have to check instore to find that out. You’ll have to take your iPad to Best Buy in person in order to get the discount voucher, but the voucher itself can be redeemed either instore or online. Best Buy says that the iPads that are traded in will be recycled.
