As March 7 fast approaches, many of us are pondering what to do with our soon-to-be outdated iPad 2. After all, it’s still a perfectly good tablet that could find a good home with another loving family, right? If you’ve been wondering what your old iPad might be worth, have a look at some current data from NextWorth.com -- but be quick about it, the value is dropping every day!
NextWorth.com wants you -- or rather, your iPad 2. The leader in consumer electronics upgrades and trade-ins is now offering high trade-in values and a 21-day price lock on your iPad 2 to help subsidize the cost of your next slim little friend -- you know, the one Apple is planning to announce Wednesday, March 7.
Curious what your iPad 2 is worth? A good condition model (not brand new out of the box) ranges from the 16GB Wi-Fi only for $260.45 all the way up to $398.81 for a 64GB Wi-Fi + AT&T 3G model. Of course, by next Thursday you might be lucky to fetch that kind of dough.
The above chart shows the steady decline in original iPad prices following the announcement of the iPad last year. A couple of weeks before Apple’s media event, prices were much higher and began a steady decline down to 20-25 percent of the original value. Sure, you could theoretically make more selling it on eBay or to a friend or loved one, but if you want quick, cold, hard cash, now is the time to act.
To make the decision even easier, NextWorth has partnered with Target to offer an in-store trade-in option at more than 1,450 Target stores nationwide. For your trade, consumers either receive credit toward a purchase, or a prepaid Target card for the value of the trade-in that can be used for any item sold at Target.
Of course, going direct with NextWorth.com, customers have the choice of cash or a gift card when they trade in. NextWorth also offers free, fully-insured UPS shipping service to all online customers, making it easy to say “Goodbye, iPad 2, hello whatever Apple is going to announce next Wednesday…”
