iPad Extra Credit
If you’re planning to buy a new iPad, and don’t know what to do with your old one, you should check out Apple’s (AAPL) Reuse and Recycle program. If your old iPad is in good condition, you stand to get credit for your old device. From the Reuse and Recycle page, you’ll be prompted to select the category, manufacturer, series, and model.
First generation, gently-used iPads can earn credit in the form of an Apple gift card. For example, if you want to return your fully-functional iPad 16GB with Wi-Fi, with minimal scratches to the display and case, with engraving on the back, and no water damage, you could get a $60 credit with free shipping. The iPad 2 is also accepted, and of course will get you more cash, as long as it’s in good condition For example, a black iPad 2 16GB WiFi + 3G with no scratches, full function and battery life, no water damage and without engraving will get you up to $250. It also helps to include the power cord, and to remove all of your content and settings.
