Last September, Verizon Wireless started offering a trade-in program for mobile handsets. To celebrate Earth Day, Verizon Wireless has extendeded the program to tablets. If you are looking to upgrade your tablet, Verizon will give you a gift card worth up to $300 towards your next purchase or bill.
That sounds so appealing, but unless your tablet is only a couple of months old, you are going to get a lot less then that. The XOOM, which was released a little over a month ago, will yield you $300. You will get much less for an IPad or Galaxy Tab. Let’s face it, you can do a lot better on EBay or Craigslist, but I guess for those of you that want to get rid of a device quick with no hassles, this option is better then nothing. Hit the break for more of Verizon’s current appraised values and the full press release.
