Earlier this month Best Buy announced a special two-day iPad trade-in program where 2nd or 3rd generation iPad owners could trade in their devices for fourth-generation iPads. Best Buy is now set to relaunch the program tomorrow, according to 9to5Mac.

The program is largely the same, with 2nd and 3rd generation iPad owners getting gift cards starting at $200 toward a fourth generation iPad when they trade in their devices. However, Best Buy will now only accept iPad models without water damage or cracked displays.

Best Buy originally launched the iPad trade-in program after the "overwhelming response" it received for a similar iPhone trade-in program. It's likely that this relaunch is due to a largely positive response to the first iPad program.

The program is expected to run until August 3.

Don't fall for this nonsense. "Starting at $200" also means "ending at $200." I walked in with a 64GB wifi + cellular and was offered $200. The guy behind me had a 16GB wifi only. He was also offered $200. It's a scam.

I just want to go hang out at Best Buy and when people come in to inquire about it I'll politely interrupt and offer $250 for it. iPads are so easy to resell I'd buy them all day long at that price.

another typical best buy scam to rip customers off... can't believe people are so naive to fall for these low ball trade in programs.

They're a business... their goal is to make money.

the day that best buy dies will be a good day!

Yes, it'll be great to have 165,000 suddenly unemployed.

$200 for an iPad 3? Forget that. You can easily get almost 2x that on CL or eBay.

Bad businesses deserve to fail and hopefully those people will go work for the better business that replaces it.

oh yes! i wasnt able to trade-in my ipad before, looks like god gave me another chance.

Another chance to get ripped off? You could get much more from CL or eBay. Think about it before you trade-in.
