Microsoft's new iPad trade-in offer pays you at least $200 to buy a Surface
| by Anujeet Majumdar |
Microsoft has now added a new chapter to its one-up-man-show with Apple. The company is now promoting its lineup of Windows 8 Surface tablets by offering to buy old iPads off users. The Surface maker has now launched a promotion in the US that will give iPad 2, iPad 3 and iPad 4 owners the option of exchanging their tablets for at least a $200 gift card.
The promotion states that iPads must be “gently used” and the offer is available only in Microsoft Stores in the US and Canada and not on the online store. That unfortunately also excludes buyers in India.
This is not the first time Microsoft has gone for Apple’s throat, though. The company recently pushed out an ad for the Windows 8 where it used Siri’s voice to take a dig at the iPad. And an earlier chapter saw the software giant launching a comparison website between its range of Windows 8 tablets and Apple's slates.
