Here's how it works.
Bestbuy is offering $100 credit towards any laptop trade in towards a surface. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/clp/s...8301863576

$100 is issued as a $50 gift card and a $50 voucher for a surface.
"
Valid in store only 3/13/16–4/02/16. When you trade in any working laptop or Surface device, get a minimum OLOR="Red"]$50 Best Buy gift card and a $50 trade-in receipt coupon toward a Surface Pro 4[/COLOR]. Keyboard sold separately. Not all products are eligible for trade-in. Not available in all locations and some stores may have additional limitations. Trade-in value may vary. Condition, documentation and accessories may affect value. Excludes devices that are cracked, water-damaged or that lack power. You are responsible for removing any data from your product before providing the product for evaluation. You will be required to agree to the Terms & Conditions. Best Buy reserves the right to refuse any trade-in or to limit quantities for any reason. Limit of 1 trade-in per person. No rainchecks. Tax is applied based on the full retail value. Limit 1 coupon per transaction. See a Blue Shirt for details."

if you don't want a surface take the $50 gc and run.

If u actually want a surface this about $300 plus off a surface because

All surfaces are $100 off at bestbuy.com
$100 trade in credit
10% off all surfaces coupon anyone can get. http://slickdeals.net/f/8350605-best-buy-edu-student-coupons-for-all-even-if-u-don-t-have-a-edu

If you want a surface but don't have a laptop to trade, wait a few days, I'm sure people will trade theirs for amz gift cards
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

What is the expiration date for the Surface pro 4 $50 coupon?
-The expiration date of the $50 surface 4 coupon is 4/2/2016

Please do share if you can stack this promotion
PLUS student coupon
PLUS mover coupon
etc...

Just stacked all three for one purchase.The cashier is so nice and tried to scanned all my coupons. But the tradein coupon only can use one. YMMV though.
Personal got pro 3 last time, stack all three coupons
Many reports of people trading in the limit of 3 laptops at a time successfully for the gift cards. Some CSRs are limiting people to only 1 trade in per person. YMMV.

CONTACTING BEST BUY WITH ISSUES IF YOUR ITEMS ARE DENIED

Best Buy forums
http://slickdeals.net/forums/showpost.php?p=77943348&postcount=516
Register, post a message including what happened, the laptop you have for trade and the store location. They will call the store and make them honor the promo. This may take a few days so be patient.

Some who were told the item had to be in the Trade-In database or whose BB locations' Rep's interpretations of the terms of trade were way off have
-- Contact Best Buy via Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/bestbuy) They will contact your local store to work out the details.
-- tweeted @BestBuySupport with the store number with a promise that said store will be set straight on correct terms of the trade
-- posted a message on Best Buy Customer Support [bestbuy.com] which privately messages posters with resolutions after contacting the problematic stores.

In your tweet or post, include the store address/city and/or store number if you have it, so the corporate CS rep can identify the store manager they have to contact. The people who answer the tweets are the same staff who read the message board posts, and they usually work from 10-6 central time, so if you post at night you may not get an answer until the next day.

******* Here is a link to a post on the CS forum [bestbuy.com] where a rep spells out that a Surface Pro 3 purchase is not required at the time of the trade, plus items not in the trade-in database should be accepted. You may wish to print it out and bring with in case of an argument. (This was copy/pasted from a tablet trade-in thread, but a lot of the info still applies)

PAWN/SECOND-HAND DEALER LAWS (VARY FROM CITY/COUNTY):

You will be asked to show Photo ID for all trade-in transactions - no exceptions. The ID will tie you to the trade-in transaction if there is an investigation into stolen goods by law enforcement, as will the receipt you sign at the end of all trade-in transactions.

Select cities or counties may have more stringent ID procedures, including:

Taking an electronic fingerprint image of the trader with a USB reader
Requiring that the trader bring proof of original purchase via receipt
Requiring that the trader bring proof of original purchase receipt specifically from Best Buy

This is not Best Buy choosing to be intrusive; this is Best Buy having to obey your local laws as a secondhand electronics dealer.

SO LOOK UP YOUR BEST BUY LOCATION in the Store Locator [bestbuy.com] to see what the requirements are before you go. On your store’s page there will be a link that says “See trade-in guidelines” under a Trade-In header

Thanks OP. Just traded in an old Dell for $50 gift card. It powered up fine at home, but for some reason it wouldn't in the store. Didn't matter as they werent too concerned. Got my gift card and the coupon.

Is there a limit on how many times you can do this? I have a really old clam shell iBook that I would like to try tomorrow.

I'm not sure if it's required or not. Technically the laptop does need to power on. When it didn't power on in the store, I gave the power adapter to the guy so he could plug it in since I don't think the battery holds a charge anymore. He said he would let it charge and check later, but didn't seem to care all that much either way, and neither did the girl that processed my gift card. It did power on at home 10 minutes prior though. I left the power brick with them as I didnt care. I just got a $50 gift card for a 11 year old Dell with a broken keyboard and a screen with a white (dead) stripe on it.
