    I pulled the trigger an bought an iPad Air, moving up from my iPad 3. I decided to upgrade because I was no longer happy with an iPad that did not really have a name other than "iPad" (kidding)

    I intend to trade in my iPad 3 somewhere - one question you can help me with if you would be so kind, I could not find the answer to this - if I decide go go Apple trade in for gift card, is that just mail in to Apple or can I take it to a store? And does it have to be tied to a transaction or can I just trade it in at a store and get a gift card and walk out?

    Thanks!

    I don't think the Apple store will do a trade in unless it is at the same time as another purchase. So you could've done it when you purchased the iPad Air to offset the purchase price, but now the Apple trade in will be mail in.
    You will get an Apple gift card for the trade in.
    Other services would be Gazelle, Nextworth, or Amazon. I think Bestbuy does trade ins for Bestbuy gift cards. Target has a deal with Nextworth that you can do an trade in in the Target store for a Target gift card.

    Maybe this isn't an option for you, but you'll get the most for it on eBay or Craigslist. I sold my 2 on eBay for $415 about a month ago.

    How did you list it, auction style?

    Yup, but with a "Buy-It-Now" option, which is what it sold for.
