Microsoft Store

Nothing like a deal to put us in a good mood. In case you didn’t know, Microsoft is planning to update its Surface line of products in a few short weeks. We’re expecting to see the Surface 2, follow up to last year’s Surface RT and the Surface Pro 2, which is the Haswell refresh of the Surface Pro. Those devices should be announced and available around the launch of Windows 8.1 on October 18th. But below you’re going to read about how you can turn in your old iPad to get at least $200 towards that new Surface.

Let’s start with the bad news first. You’re going to need a Microsoft Store to do this. Not just live in the United States and interact with the Microsoft Store, but a brick-and-mortar shop where you can physically set foot inside Microsoft retail space. So if you have a Microsoft Store near you or plan on visiting one between now and October 27th read on.

Dump the iPad for Surface

If you bring in a gently used iPad 2, 3, or 4 you’ll get a minimum $200 gift card for the Microsoft Store. You’ll want to refresh your iPad and remove any data on there, once you’ve done that you’re $200 closer to a new Surface tablet. Whether you spend that gift card on a Surface or Xbox One is completely up to you, but we’d probably lean the Surface route personally.

Hit up the source below to get the full details. There is a limit of 1 per customer, so don’t all ship me your iPads and expect any gift cards soon.
