Microsoft really wants you to switch from the iPad to Surface

Microsoft has decided to aggressively target iPad users in an attempt to get them to convert to its own Surface RT or Surface Pro tablets. The Redmond, Washington-based software giant says that users who bring in a "gently used" iPad 2, iPad 3, or iPad 4 will get at least a $200 gift card to the Microsoft store.

Microsoft doesn't specifically say that gift card has to be used for a Surface RT or Surface Pro tablet. However, right after offering the $200 gift card for the iPad Microsoft does take the opportunity to mention that the Surface RT is available starting at $349 while the Surface Pro is available starting at $799.


The special offer is valid from September 5 until October 27, 2013 and is valid at select Microsoft retail stores in the U.S. and Canada. The offer is not available online so if you don't have a Microsoft Store nearby you're out of luck.
 
To be eligible for the trade-in the iPad must include the power cord and the device can't be password-protected.

God damn you're an idiot. Do you really think I meant no one uses eBay? No. What I did mean is that people trying to get the BEST deal on certain things like electronics especially tablets and smart phones won't find it on eBay but Craigslist. Now move along before you hurt yourself trying to understand the English language.

No, he isn't. Another one of those types of people who thinks he is right no matter what, even when he is completely and absurdly wrong. And notice how it's always the Apple defenders?

LOL where on earth are you making this shit up?!?!? I'm wrong and I refuse to admit it?! I don't see how I'm wrong about the price, you can find CHEAPER priced iPads on cl over eBay end of story there is nothing to be wrong or right about.
And I am an apple defender??? LOL where did you pull this from your moms ass? I'm a PC guy, I don't even own an iPad nor would I want to, and I don't see me defending apple anywhere I was simply stating you can find better deals on one on cl but it's just easier for you to make up arguments then to argue the facts.
Maybe you're ignorant because you're an apple fanboy? See I can make stuff up too =D
