If you have already pre-ordered or are considering pre-ordering an iPad Air 2, then now is the time to sell your older iPad model. Companies such as Gazelle and Next Worth are fighting over your used iPad and trade-in values are at an all time high! For example, Gazelle is offering an extra $20, opposed to Next Worth's additional $10, on any iPad traded in that has a value of $75 or more through October 31st. Even if you're on the fence about upgrading or selling your used model, you can lock-in a free quote now and take up to 30 days to make up your mind. This way you can take advantage of the current trade-in values that will decrease once the iPad Air 2 starts shipping later this week.
Selling your old iPad is easy, just visit Gazelle.com and select the device you want to sell. Select one of the three options "Broken," "Good" or "Flawless" and receive your trade-in quote. If you're happy with the quote, click the "Get Paid" button to lock it in. Gazelle will send you a free USPS or FedEx shipping label and will quickly review your device once you ship it in. If your device matches the condition you specified Gazelle will pay you via Amazon gift card or through Pay Pal. If your device does not match the condition you specified Gazelle will issue you a new trade-in quote. You will then have 5 days to accept the new trade-in value or have your device returned to you free of charge.
You can then put the money you earned towards your new iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3.
Both the iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 are expected to start shipping at the end of this week. Trade-in values for older models will decrease once the next-generation tablets are officially released, so make sure to lock-in your 30-day quote now!
Gazelle also accepts trade-ins for iPhones, select Android products and Mac computers.
