The Internet is abuzz with stats about iPad trade-ins going through the roof as the March 7 iPad 3 unveiling in San Francisco looms closer, and while percentages and graphs are vaguely interesting, the real meat to the story concerns where and how people can get the most bang for their buck. Before perusing the options, identify the condition, features, and model of the swappable iPad. Amazon offers high prices for the iPad 1 and iPad 2, but trade-in cash is only available in the form of an Amazon.
Amazon also notifies consumers that undervalued tablets could receive extra money after an official evaluation. The service also collaborated with Target online to extend the same deals to its shoppers. Gazelle is widely recommended and offers multiple ways to reap those bank notes through either a check, PayPal, or Amazon. It is worth noting that choosing the Amazon Gift Card option will allot 5 percent more than the quoted value.
Oh, and Gazelle has free shipping. Ebay is circulating in the news recently due to reports that claim iPad trade-ins are up 10 times from last year. The website is the first—and probably the most iconic— online garage sale, so it would make sense for the e-commerce service to provide a revered trade-in program with cash dispensed through PayPal.
GameStop is a bit more annoying, because a physical store is necessary to swap an iPad. A store associate will inspect the slate and then offer cash or store credit for an exchange. BestBuy presents one of the simpler services for swapping an Apple tablet. Simply select the model, choose its quality, and add it to the cart.
The retailer warns that actual trade-ins will vary according to condition and completeness of peripheral accessories. RadioShack has an in-store and online option for exchanging an iPad. In fine print on the bottom of the website, the retailer notifies consumers that trade-ins are subject to applicable processing fees and need included chargers, cables or other accessories. The company also grants free shipping and packaging for the trade-in process generated by PowerOn.
PowerMax does not show quotes on the website. It has consumers complete a questionnaire about the slate, and then the website will contact them within minutes. PowerMax advertises that consumers can receive a check or credit for the agreed-upon amount, but a response e-mail from the website revealed it only permits trades for store credit and the exchange process takes four to six weeks. It is very easy to quickly post the specs of a slate with a desired asking price.
It is also free to post, but some may whine over the packaging and shipping hassle the service permits—hence the No. Never-the-less, Craigslist is a popular website perfectly capable of matchmaking sellers to potential buyers. Apple is continuing its efforts to market the iPad as a PC replacement and is available in four Retina display screen sizes: Breaking news from Cupertino.
