Walmart cuts the price of the Apple iPad 2 by $100, offers at least $100 trade-in for any iPad
Walmart is slicing the price of the Apple iPad 2 by $100 to $299 for the next 30 days. Apple has continued to offer its sophomore slate in order to have different pricing tiers for its tablets. The Cupertino based tech giant does the same thing with the iPhone, offering the Apple iPhone 4s as an entry-level model. According to a recent report, Apple is even restarting production of the Apple iPhone 4 for three developing countries.

Walmart will guarantee a minimum trade-in value of $100 for any Apple iPad that you bring into the store. That means that the iPad 2 could cost you just $199 at Walmart. The 16GB Apple iPad Air can be taken home for just $399 if you trade in an older iPad at Walmart.

And if you need a new phone instead of a tablet, the retailer will give you $100 to as much as $300 for any working smartphone, when you trade it in for a new handset and sign a two-year pact with AT&T or Verizon. The lists of phones available with the trade in include the 16GB Apple iPhone 5s and Apple iPhone 5c, Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Mega 6.3 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

All trades must be fully functional with no liquid damage, cracked screens or housing damage. You can even see in advance how much Walmart will give you in a trade. Click on the sourcelink and type in the name of the phone to see how much it is worth to you in a trade with the retailer.

$300 is still way too much for that old tablet.

I wouldn't pay $300 for the iPad 2. I wouldn't even pay more than $200, if that.

$299.99 for a iPad 2 is ridiculously overpriced.. For that I can go on Craigslist and get a iPad 3 or 4 for nearly the same price or even cheaper after taxes.

I have to agree. I think $149-$199 would be a fair price.

And that $300 figure is after the $100 price cut. Selling the iPad 2 for the same price as the Retina iPad Mini is just stupid. Whoever is unfortunate enough to actually fall for that rip off is giving Apple insane profit.

This reminds me what Apple is doing with the iPhone 4; old product at unrealistic prices in today’s market.

If you're not bothered by the 2 or whatever inches, you're better off just buying the mini (1 or 2) rather than getting the iPad 2.

I personally would not buy any tablet with only 512mb of ram (or even 1gig which is the reason why I passed on the retina mini). Eventually that memory penalty will come back to haunt you. Given the asking price for these tablets why settle for compromises.

Looks to me you've never used Air, Mini 2 or 5S before.

That's not bad

I made $980 in 2 days plowing snow. 21 yrs old and no college degree. It's not hard to come across money. Would I pay $300 for an iPad 2? Maybe if I was someone who didn't care about specs on paper, like most of society. My sister has an iPad 2 and the thing still runs flawlessly

The thing that would bug me for that price is the non retina screen.

I broke down and bought one for my parents because they are old and need something easy to use.
