Saw this while looking through the Sunday ads. It states that you will get $200 gift card for any iPad. This could be a great opportunity if you have trade credit at GameStop and use the Mystery coupon on a 1st gen.

YMMV - might have to use gift card towards purchase of any new iPad.

It was just reported by that it works on any Gen iPad and it's a gift card with no ipad purchase required. Have at it, CAGs. No cheap Gen 1's around me, though.

Glad this got its own thread, hopefully others will post their experiences.  Hoping to just trade an ipad in and get the giftcard without having to buy another ipad so I can use it on the PS4 buy 2 get 1.

Only got $60 GS credit left, not sure if $40 out of pocket is worth it to get an IPad 1 for $100 then turn it to $200 Target GC.

Last night, I checked to see if there are any Targets near me that did trade-ins. I found 2. This morning, I checked the store tracker and it shows none within a 50 mile radius. Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

None of the Targets around me showed up on the trade-in locator.

It's probably a glitch, since I know for a fact that my local Target does trade-ins and it isn't appearing when I search for it.

Yeah I notice the same thing too when I search the Target trade-in tracker .... weird.

 

Can anybody confirm the in-store price of some of the Gen 1's?  The 16GB WiFi's show $ $135 online but with an in-store price of $199?  Can anybody confirm the price in-store is wrong?

I would call the store that has it available because since that price you mentioned are "scratch and scruff" condition iPads, there's a chance that Target will not accept them due to the condition of the screen.

I can't say anything about the gen 1's but I did buy an ipad 4 16gb a few days ago and I paid $379.99 in-store while the online price was a bit less at $377.99

On the trade-in site, it says they will give "at least $200" in trade. I've got an OG iPad 64GB wifi that according to their trade calculator is worth only $75, but I wonder what they'd give during this promotion. Since the 1st Gen iPads are worthless - never got updated past iOS 5 and many apps don't run on it - and I'm pretty much all about Android (typing this on my Nexus 7), it would be great if I could recoup my investment and get a Target card to buy other stuff. I also have the Red Card. What are those bonuses?

so if our local ad doesn't have the trade in notice, does that mean we can't do it?   we're getting the same 'no stores within 50 miles' searching that website. 

 

i have a gen 1 in perfect working order that hasn't been used in months.

F***! 16GB scratch and scuff iPads have become $199 in store at GS. This deal won't last past today(or, maybe the rules will be changed). Get there NOW. SD is shredding it!

 

ANY iPad(not sure about mini) gets a $200 GC. Make sure they look under promotions.

Confirmed the in-store price of 199. Very strange, clerk also didn't know why, and advised to order from the site. Walked out with the iPad anyway (199 - 10% reduction - 25% mystery - another 10% I didn't know about) for 130 including tax. Still an easy 70 dollars gain at target.

Does anyone know whether you can buy prepaid visa with a target GC?

I read on 1 of these sites that someone said no. Must've changed in the last couple of years because I did it before.

No one was buying gen 1 and 2's before so this pricing may have been the same all along. The gen 4 32 gb is still the same in store price as it has been. Who knows?

Someone on SD mentioned buying iPads during b2g1. I think they said they came out to $97 each.

Got a 32GB ipad 2, I've noticed when it comes to resale the higher GB models don't net much more profit over the cheap-o model.
