If you’re looking to get a new iPad and happen to have an old one (and by old, I mean the iPad 2), Apple just made it that much easier.
Apple’s Reuse and Recycling Program has been updated today to reflect the values for various models of the iPad 2. The program offers Apple gift cards in exchange for your old gadgetry, which will hopefully entice you to trade-in instead of lopping your perfectly good components into a land fill. Not only are you saving a few bucks, but you’re being green.
And more importantly, the savings you’ll get by trading in your iPad 2 for a new one are pretty great. According to TNW, these are the trade-in values of all iPad 2 editions:
iPad 2 Wifi (16GB) – $205
iPad 2 Wifi + 3G (16GB) – $250
iPad 2 Wifi (32GB) – $245
iPad 2 Wifi + 3G (32GB) – $280
iPad 2 Wifi (64GB) – $275
iPad 2 Wifi + 3G (64GB) – $320
The worst part about being an Apple fan is that it’s almost impossible to not have the new, new thing. Apple’s Reuse and Recycling program makes that issue a bit easier, as do other services like eBay Instant Sale. The point is: it’s much better to get some cash and reuse components than it is to throw this stuff in the trash, so if you’re ready to trade the old in for the new, head on over to Apple’s trade-in page by clicking here.
