Your Old iPad Could Get You a New Pixel Tablet for Free

If you've been thinking about taking the leap from an iPad to a Pixel Tablet — or even if you haven’t — Google has a pretty enticing offer on the table. The company recently started offering the Pixel Tablet without the Charging Speaker Dock. While the dock turns the tablet into a smart home display, opting for the tablet alone saves you $100. While $399 is a better price than $499, that's not the intriguing deal. Google is also offering a trade-in program for your old Samsung or Apple tablet. Depending on the model you're giving up, trading in your tablet gets you a Pixel Tablet for free — you just pay the tax. You don't even need to have a newer iPad to take advantage of this deal. Google will accept an iPad as old as the iPad 6, which launched in 2018. If it's in good shape, your credit will be $399, which happens to be the price of a base-model Pixel Tablet. Even if the iPad is beat up, if it turns on, you'll still get $200 for it. Seeing as a refurbished iPad 6 goes for $164 on Amazon right now, that's a great deal. What's interesting is that $399 appears to be the maximum Google will offer you for any iPad — whether you have a good condition iPad 6 or the latest 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The only catch is that you need to pay for the Pixel Tablet in full at the time of purchase. Google will send you a mail-in kit for your old tablet and,  following an inspection, will send a rebate to you for the agreed-upon trade-in value. At the end, you can get a brand new Pixel Tablet for only the cost of sales tax.
