Tomorrow is the big day of the New iPad shipping to the people who were quick enough to order it. And now it appears there’s a quick way to make money to buy the tablet cheaper than the usual price. For example, you can sell your used iPad 2 to Apple and they’ll give you $320 for it.
Trade-in values were also published on sites like eBay InstantSale and they mention prices like $205 for the 16 GB WiFi iPad 2, or $280 for the 32GB WiFi + 3G version of the tablet. The biggest money you can get is $320 for the 64GB WiFi + 3G Apple iPad and these values only apply to “perfect condition” iPads, without scuffing, engraving and packing functional batteries. Of course, a power cord must be included a data wiping as well. The price will be taken down by stuff like water damage, cracks and wear.
There’s always the option of selling your gear on Craigslist, but the trade-in is certainly the better option now. Apple’s got a Reuse and Recycling program going on, a very competitive one too, if compared to the programs of other companies. Amazon offers the biggest trade in value, with $300 shelled out to people for a 16GB WiFi iPad 2 and as big as $460 for a 64GB WiFi + 3G iPad 2.
