Microsoft Wants to Buy Your Old iPad

Own an old iPad that no longer sees much use? Microsoft’s happy to take it off your hands. The company recently began running a new promotion, offering Microsoft Store gift cards in exchange for “gently used” iPads. If you’ve got an iPad 2, 3, or 4 that meets that criteria, Microsoft will give you a minimum of $200 in store credit which you can spend on one of its Surface tablets or any other product available through the Microsoft Store.
