Ready to trade in that iPad2 for the new iPad? Some tips.
So, lets say you got an iPad 2 just a few weeks ago. You’ve barely set it up to your comfy zone when suddenly…the new iPad is out, and you find yourself…obsolete.
Not that this happened to me – except obviously, it did, but I’m imagining a lot of Apple fellow-sheep are in a confused state right now. We’re excited about the new iPad launched earlier today — except we’re not. Because we already realize we just may be screwed.
For those ready to trade in old for new — you can earn around $300 for your iPad 2 using trade-in services like Nextworth, BuyMyTronics and eBay. Hey, that gets you halfway to your new one when it’s in stores next week!
Do your research. Trade-in sites offer estimates to help you gauge how much money you can get for your old iPad 2. For instance — as of earlier today — a black 16GB WiFi in like new condition will fetch $291.89 at Nextworth.com. Meanwhile, that same iPad 2’s trade-in value at buymytronics.com is $267. So do your research and find out where you can get the most cash.
