    Has anyone here taken advantage of BB $200 trade in offer? I have a 16GB mini I may take to them today.

    I've never done any sort of trade in, but I have an older ipad & I think I'mm going to try this.

    How w easy is the process? I'm assuming you just bring in the old device to customer service?

    I traded in my iPad 2 to get the Air last year.

    I took it to customer service and had them verify that the Air I wanted was in stock. Then they gave me a store credit which I applied towards the price of the Air.

    The whole process was very smooth and hardly took any extra time.

    Cool, that sounds pretty simple!

    I was debating trading it into apple, but best buy seems to have the better deal.

    They really lowball at the Apple Store in my opinion. They offered $105 for my friends replacement 16 GB Mini 1 when he could sell it for $200

    They discount the device $50 and give you a $150 gift card. I traded my original 16GB mini. They didn't even take cable or AC adapter.

    Oh I didn't know that, I packed everything up in the original box the way it came and handed it to them.

    I am thinking of going with a 64 gb Air 2 to replace my 32, so then I won't take the charger or the cable.

    Thanks

    Yea I asked they guy if he was going to take them since he put the iPad in a zip lock bag and left. He said they don't need them anymore. I returned my Nexus 9, and grabbed a 128 Gold wifi model.

    Nice choice. I really like the new Nexus 9, but it has a few hardware problems right off the bat that make it so I'd never buy one. The screen backlight bleeds tremendously, the white model has a tacky/cheap feel, and the tablet has the Tegra K1, which pointed out by many, is still not the most stable 64-bit chip Android device manufacturers have to offer. I am loving my Air 2 though, couldn't be happier, and this is why I stay with iOS every time

    I returned my first LTE Air 2 because the vibrations were extremely bad. The Nexus 9 went back because of the power button and heat. Just didn't feel like a $400+ product. And don't get me wrong, I love android. Everything I own is Android except for my MacBook Retina and Air 2 ( vibrates way less than my first unit).

    When I traded in my iPhone 5, I had everything in the box nice and neat, like new. The store rep took the phone out, turned it on and returned the box with charger and cable. He said they didn't need any of that. I was happy to leave with the extra charger and cable.

    Just came back from BB, trading my Air for Air 2.

    I handed her my iPad and she asked if I had the cable and the charger, so I had to give her that as well.

    Maybe the rules for iPads are different or stores vary.

    I am happy with trade though.

    How much did they give you for your Air?

    $301 for the Air, 32, wifi, another $50 coupon for getting the Air 2.

    I paid $277.04 with taxes and somehow ended up with another $50 coupon for future purchase.

    I am happy.

    Today, I got $173 for my iPad 2, $50 off the Air 2 and a $50 gift card, so $273 total discount for trading in my iPad 2 on an iPad Air 2. Oh and I got Best Buy reward points and 2% cash back on my Amex. Pretty good deal if you ask me and much better than the Gazelle price.

    Wow. That's really great. I may have to do that now. Not that I really needed to buy a new iPad.

    I am very neutral love android iOS and windows though I'll never touch a windows phone until they have apps. I find the iPad the best as terms of battery life and app quality is fantastic with iOS vs android as far as tablets go. I also find magazines are 500% better on iPad since they have more features and aren't just carbon copies of the print version like on android. I also thought of getting a nexus 9 but the tegra chip made me rethink about it. Absolutely love my iPad Air 2

    Just google Best Buy iPad trade in offer and you'll find the link to their trade in price quotes. I heard the $50 extra off the iPad Air 2 ended today, but I imagine with the holidays coming, it will be back soon.
