Now you can get up to $300 for your old iPad to buy the new one. A day after the launch of new iPads, Walmart starts its tablet trade-in program. Just like its smartphone trade-in program, the giant retailer is offering its customers up to $300 for their old tablet to buy the new one.
Walmart tablet trade-in program started yesterday morning i.e. Wednesday, Oct. 23. This program is now available all across US in more than 3,600 stores and Sam’s Club locations. The trade-in value of the old tablet depends upon its working condition, number of cracks, spots on the body and the wireless carrier.
Customers and members can use their old tablet trade-in value to buy a new tablet of their choice. But if the valued amount is more than customer’s new tablet, the store will give the balance amount back to the customer in terms of a Walmart gift card.
Walmart U.S EVP of general merchandise, Steve Bratspies said, “Once we launched our smartphone trade-in program earlier this fall, we quickly heard from customers that they also wanted a way to trade-in and up to a newer tablet. We listened and are happy to add tablets to our trade-in program just in time for the holidays.
Tablets are one of the fastest-growing categories in our stores and we are moving just as fast to ensure our customers have access to a wide selection of brand-name tablets at all price points. In fact, over the past 12 months, we’ve more than doubled our assortment to include tablets from Apple, Samsung, Google, Nabi, Barnes & Noble, Hisense and others.”
