You have to give it to Microsoft sometimes… it sure does know how to grab someone’s attention. With its latest promotion, you’re able to bring in your “gently used” iPad 2, 3 or 4 to any Microsoft Store and get at least a $200 gift card – perhaps for that Surface tablet you’ve been salivating over?
This deal might seem a little pointless at first, given that a lot of people are unlikely to get rid of their tablet, but Microsoft seems to be rather fair about its offer here. If you have a newer iPad, but happen to have an iPad 2 kicking around that’s in good shape, that’s an easy $200 that could go towards something like an Xbox 360 (we’re not sure if the Xbox One would be eligible for the discount given it’s unreleased) or some other Microsoft product.
I have major doubts we’ll hear about the success of this promotion, but I really hope that isn’t the case.
