Update 10-22-2014: Engadget Review confirms A8X Triple Core and 2GB RAM!Smilie But also 2-1/2 hrs LESS battery life than the iPad Air Frown

Upon trade in of a qualified tablet, a trade-in coupon for $25 toward a new iPad mini 3 or $50 toward a new iPad Air 2 will print with the trade in receipt.
Key question for those buying only to take advantage of rewards and cash-back (e.g. discover rewards and cash back worth 10%) Can we use the coupon online instead of the store?
I went to BestBuy, was about to do the trade but the girl at the counter did not know and guessed it was only in-store. One of the managers was equally unhelpful.

***Went to a local store, they were not aware of the deal. Pulled up on the phone from the website and the guy agreed that it will be total $200. But they wont have the Ipad's until Oct 23, and they cannot pre-order so asked me to come back later since this is valid well into November.

I have a 10% off coupon, I am hoping to use that to knock off another $50 since Ipad's are not on the exclusion list? Any thoughts on this coupon?

ORIGINAL BOX / ACCESSORIES ETC NOT REQUIRED, JUST BRING YOUR IPAD (MAKE SURE IT TURNS ON)

Movers coupon and trade in coupon stacked of course ymmv

so they say we get gift card upon trade in. does that mean we dont really have to buy new ipad air 2? or will they force us to buy ipad air 2 on the spot?

From reading the terms and conditions it sounds like they give you a gift card for a regular trade in transaction ($16x for ipad 3 16gb wifi) and then they give you a $50 coupon valid toward an iPad Air 2 (for a total of $21x).

It looks like a portion of that "guaranteed $200 minimum" is a $50 coupon for an iPad Air 2. So yes, you can only get the full amount if you end up purchasing a new iPad from Best Buy.

If it works like previous similar promos, the $150 gift card can be used on anything but the coupons can only be used on the new iPad models. In order for the promo to only be for an iPad, there needs to be a line that says "gift card must be used towards the purchase of a new iPad."

seems like it. however, ipad 2s/minis are trending around 150-200 used so I don't think this would be too slick of a deal

Well I got my mini for $200 a few months ago, so it's like it was a rental if I can get $200 towards the air 2 which I was going to buy anyways

that's true - u are just foregoing the taxes.

personally im really hesitant when it comes to ipad deals this year - having bought a lot of (and sold/traded most) tablets in the past, im starting to see less and less value in upgrading every year. im perfectly happy with my 4g nexus 7, probly won't buy anything unless the new ipads are 200 discounted this BF

Does anyone know if the $50 bonus coupon can be used online, or does it have to be used in store? I'm thinking of going in tomorrow to trade in my iPad and then reserving the iPad Air 2 online. Would prefer to reserve online so I can use Discover cash back plus USPS movers coupon (if that even works with the new iPads).

Thanks!

So is this the best way to go from an iPad Air to an iPad Air 2 without risking a paypal charge back? Looks like $250 for the trade + $50 off coupon.
