The Surface 3 laptop-tablet hybrid from Microsoft which was launched recently will now be available for purchase in the coming month. Best Buy along with other retailers has already started receiving the pre-orders for Surface 3. Best Buy is offering users a minimum $200 trade-in value for their old working tablet if they use it toward buying the Surface Pro 3.
The offer from Best Buy Co Inc is for a limited period, which started on Sunday, April 12 and those who have been eyeing the Surface Pro 3 tablet can snag one until April 18.
The trade-in offer for the Surface Pro 3 also includes a $50 gift from the retailer depending on the condition of the tablet being traded in. Additionally, Best Buy is also offering customers a coupon worth $150 that is valid only for purchasing the Surface Pro 3.
Users can redeem the coupon by April 25 at select Best Buy stores, and therefore it is best to check which locations will honor these coupons. Moreover, some stores might also have additional limitations. The Best Buy promotion excludes both Marketplace and Outlet items.
Besides that, the keyboard is sold separately and is not part of this promotion. And those users who are planning to use the trade-in amount for a new Surface 3 cannot do so as the offer stands only for the Surface Pro 3.
Best Buy’s website has a dedicated page to check the trade-in value of any tablet to avail the deal. A Surface RT 32 GB tablet with light wear and scratches but in working condition will beget a trade-in value of $62, while the same tablet with heavy wear and scratches but in working condition will fetch only $18.60. And a non-working tablet will not fetch any trade-in value. The Best Buy promotion for the Surface Pro 3 is only valid in-store and not online.
The 64GB Surface Pro 3 Intel Core i3 currently sells for $799. Including trade-in discounts of $200 in coupons, users can snag the same for $599. The 128GB Surface Pro 3 Intel Core i5 retails at $999 and 256GB Intel Core i5 model costs $1299. The 256GB and 512GB Intel Core i7 models of the Surface Pro 3 cost $1549 and $1949, respectively.
