With the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 already available there has been an increase in the number of people trading in their older models, which is to be expected. However, people are finding that leaving things so long the Apple iPad trade-in price is not as much as they would have hoped. While this is a bit of a pain, you can still rest assured these tablets hold their price better than rival Android models.
There are several places in the US, Canada and the UK where you can get a good trade-in price, but we forget to take a look at two other choices for those of you in the US, which are Walmart and Gazelle.
Walmart vs Gazelle for Apple iPad trade-in – Let us have a little look at the sort of prices each of these offer for the iPad we currently have to the side of us. For some reason Walmart lists several iPad models to make your selection easy, yet they do not show the iPad Air, and so you have to select other to get more models showing.
The other issue we have with this site is how they do not give you the option as to what storage you have, and so you have to enter the entire model number, for that you need to go a little further into the process, which is when you then get the option to choose your storage. For our iPad Air 16GB model we were offered just $214.65.
Gazelle seems like an easier service to use and you also get the option as to which carrier you are with, or WiFi only, which ours is, The price Gazelle offered was $230, so better than Wal-mart. We did try to use the Amazon trade-in service for our iPad Air, but they do not even have that option yet.
