Apple’s new iPad sold 3 million units in 3 days. But what if you recently bought your iPad 2, is there anything you can do?  Actually, you have some pretty great options.  My favorite is trading it for a gift card at amazon.com/tradeins.  Just search for the model iPad you have – it can even be an original iPad – and amazon.com will give you an instant quote.  My 64GB AT&T iPad 2 in good condition got me a $451 gift card.  So my new 64GB Verizon iPad, which sells for $829, only cost me $378.  If you want cash, instead of a gift card, you can visit gazelle.com.  There the process is just as simple, you search out the model iPad you want to sell and gazelle.com offers you cash.  Of course, I should mention that Apple has its own recycle and reuse program and it also offers gift cards for your trade in.
