If you have been wanting to get the Microsoft Band 2, there's a chance you could reduce its $250 cost by trading in an older smartwatch or fitness band. Microsoft has recently launched a promotion that offers users a way to get up to $250 towards the purchase of the latest version of the Band for U.S. and Canadian residents.
The high trade-in cost of $250 is only if you have a working version of the 38MM version of the Apple Watch with a stainless steel case and a Milanese loop. After that, the trade-in prices get lower for devices like the Apple Watch Sport, the Fitbit Charge. You can also trade in the first Microsoft Band, which can be used to cut down the price for its successor by $35
This promotion lasts until February 7. People who do trade in their older device will get a promotional code via email which they can use to cut the price and buy the Microsoft Band 2 at the Microsoft Store site. The code must be used by March 15.
