Best Buy will give you at least $200 towards a Surface Pro 3 when you trade in your old tablet

Best Buy is currently running a promotion in its retail stores that offers potential buyers of Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 at least $200 towards the purchase of the 12-inch device if they trade in any old, but still working, tablet.

The promotion runs from now until Saturday, April 18 and can only be used in Best Buy's brick-and-mortar stores. Trading in the old tablet will give the customer at least a $50 Best Buy gift card, but that amount could be even more depending on the make and model of the device. The promotion also offers those users a $150 coupon that can be used to cut the price of buying any Surface Pro 3 model, so combining the coupon with the gift card will reduce the price of getting Microsoft's tablet by quite a bit.

E-readers and Boogie Board devices don't count as tablets for this promotion. Each person can trade up to two old tablets for this deal, and there's just one coupon being given out per person. The gift card can obviously be used at any time for any product but the Surface Pro 3 $150 coupon must be used by April 25.

Microsoft recently announced the 10.6-inch Surface 3, which will go on sale May 5. If you want to learn the differences between the Surface 3 and the Surface Pro 3, we have got you covered.
