Want to trade in your old iPad for a $200 gift card? Target is allowing consumers to swap their devices for the red plastic from the retailer until Saturday PC Magazine reported Tuesday.
"Your device will be appraised in-store at the mobility kiosk," Target told PC Magazine. "[The] $200 minimum promotional credit will be issued on a Target Trade-In Gift Card and is redeemable in any Target store. To qualify, an iPad must power on and screen must not be scratched."
Consumers can then use the gift card to buy a new iPad Air or another item in any of the retailers stores.
If you can't get to a store until after Saturday, Target will still accept old iPads in exchange for their gift cards for a maximum of $300.
According to PC Magazine, the $200 gift cards currently available this week, may not be marketed then however.
Consumers interested in participating in the trade-in program can do so by finding a store to return their product, obtain a quoted price for the product they are giving back, and then receive instant payment with one of the company's card according to information on the Target website.
Online trade-ins can also be done by receiving a quote for the product. Customers can then ship it to the company through UPS, and receive a Target GiftCard in the mail. A 16 gigabyte Wi-Fi device costs a minimum $499, with a 128 gigabyte priced at $929.
Target is not the only retailer with trade-in programs, as Wal-Mart has a maximum $300 available for customers who give in their devices, and buy a new tablet computer from the company. A 16 gigabyte iPad 4 with Wi-Fi for instance, costs $165.
Apple is also expected to release its new iPad Mini with retina display this month from $399 to $829.
