Thinking of getting a new iPad next week? Trade-in your old one and get a 10% bonus from Gazelle

Some Apple World Today readers will probably disagree with me, but I usually sell my old iPhones and iPads through one place -- Gazelle. In the past I've tried selling items through eBay and have usually had hassles with buyers, payment, and shipping. To top it off, both PayPal and eBay end up taking a cut, so I end up with less money in my pocket. Generally, if I sign up with Gazelle to sell a previous generation device (say, an iPhone 6 Plus) just prior to the release of a new device (an iPhone 6s Plus, for example), I get a really decent price and it literally takes me minutes to prepare the device to ship in the box that Gazelle sends. Well, in preparation for the upcoming expected 9.7-inch iPad Pro release, Gazelle's offering an additional 10% on top of what you'd normally get for an iPad trade-in.

The deal is on any iPad trade-in valued at $50 or more, excluding the iPad Pro. The deal is only good through March 27, 2016, so if you're thinking about making the move to a new iPad, this is a good time to do it. 

Setting up a trade-in is fast and easy; just go to Gazelle's trade-in page, enter in information about the model and condition of the iPad you want to trade in, and they'll make you an offer. If you like the offer, accept it and you'll get the 10% extra if the offer is over $50. They send you a box, you send the iPad to them, they inspect the iPad, and you get a check, Amazon gift card, or PayPal credit. Me? I always take the check. 

Your trade-in also helps Apple World Today, as we're a Gazelle affiliate. So do some good while getting ready for the next-generation iPad!
