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
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.

Coming from you, LOL...that's amusing.
And as for your moronic comment on "who uses ebay", millions of people do.

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.
