I saw this morning that Best Buy is offering a $25 gift card with the purchase of the new ipad air. Also offering a minimum of $150 gift card for trade in (Order March 24. Plus, get a minimum $150 Best Buy gift card when you trade in select working iPad models.) Not sure if this is above and beyond any other trade in value. Link to page
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/ipad-...9000050007
For 128gb Ipad $429 -$25 -$150 =$254 $100 less for 32gb version

It clearly says on the terms: "at least $150 ".

Per simple math...the number 164 is higher than the number 150.....so $164 is all you'll get.

Thanks, hoping other retailers will offer similar gift card perks to sweeten the deal. I won't trade my current iPad for such a low amount however...probably just sell it via eBay.

Yes $150. they gave me an offer online for $164 for 32gb ipad air good condition. Doubt that the $150 is on top of the $164. You never know 32 gb version is actually $150 after deal
