- Trade-In and Old iPad, Get $200 In-store Credit (expired)
Today is the last day Target stores will give a $200 store card in exchange for your old iPad.
The iPad must be working, and you must bring it to the Target Mobility department found in the electronics department of many Target stores.
Considering that a used iPad 1 or iPad 2 may normally be valued around $70 to $125, getting $200 for it is a hot deal.
This is a hot deal if you have an old iPad 1 or iPad 2.
Any models are accepted (16GB, 32GB, etc), and the iPad must be in full working order.
It is recommended you charge up the iPad and delete all of your data before bringing it in for trade-in.
To see if your Target store has a Mobility Store, locate a Target store by checking "Target Mobile" in your search.
They will give you a gift card that says "electronics trade-in card" which works like any real gift card.
You can immediately turn around and start using the $200 credit.
They would love if you bought the new iPad Air at Target with your $200 credit, but you can buy anything you want.
If you would rather have $200 credit that can be spent other stores, locate an American Express Prepaid Card at the Target store.
The card costs $3, and you can use your $200 Target Trade-in Card to load $200 on your AmEx Prepaid Card.
Beware that Target sells both an AmEx Prepaid Card and an AmEx Gift Card.
The Prepaid Card is non-transferable (which is what you want), whereas the AmEx Gift Card costs more and is meant to be given away to somebody else.
Pay $3, load the Prepaid Card with $200 from your trade-in, then you can spend that $200 anywhere that accepts American Express cards (restaurants, grocery stores, shopping websites, etc).

Update on Target Gift Card for Old iPad:
If you traded in your old iPad at a Target store for a $200 gift card, you can convert the gift card to an American Express Prepaid Card for $3 at a Target Store.
An American Express Prepaid Card can be used anywhere that accepts American Express.
Beware that Target sells both an AmEx Gift Card and a AmEx Prepaid Card, but the Prepaid Card is the one you want.
If you want to apply your $200 Target card toward a new iPad Air but Target does not have them in stock, you could swap your Target Card for an AmEx Card and buy an iPad Air at a Staples store for the same $479 sale price as Target's.
There are only a few days left to trade-in your old iPad for a $200 gift card at a Target store.

- Trade-In and Old iPad, Get a $200 In-store Credit (expired)
If you have an old iPad 1 or iPad 2 laying around, and were thinking of upgrading to the new iPad or iPad Air, this is a hot deal for you.
Bring in your old iPad to any Mobility store inside Target, and according to their trade-in website, they will give you $200 in store credit.
This deal works in-store only.
To find a Target Mobile Store, use their Find a Store, and check "Target Mobile" in your search.
Your iPad must be in working condition.
They will ask you to turn it on and unlock the iPad for inspection.
You can make life easier on them by erasing the contents of your iPad before taking it in for trade-in, but either way, they will erase it once you trade it in.
They will give you a gift card that says "electronics trade-in card" which some may think it can only be used for electronics, but it should be a real gift card, valid on any Target items and on Target.com.
Apple iPad Air 16GB Wi-Fi is going for $479 at Target stores and Target.com.
So if you have an old iPad 1 or iPad 2, you could get this new iPad Air for $279 either online or in-store after trade-in.
