OK, I just called and got some good info. As far as they know there is no surface trade in program so far. BUT they have a general trade in program anyways. So you can take your surface in and have it evaluated/appraised on value. Then if you like the amount, you get it on a giftcard. Which then can be put towards the new surface. This goes for any surface, whether pro or RT. So that's good. I think they also factor into the value on if device is wiped or not. If they have to go in and erase stuff to free storage, u might get less.
Other good news is in Ipad trade in program. As all the news on it shows ipad2 and up. So even if your Ipad 1st generation doesn't fall under that, you can still trade it in under the regualr trade in program they have. Where they will evaluate its worth. With cosmetic quality of device factoring in big.
She said it'd be better under regular trade in program because the Ipad deal gift cards expire or have to be used by end of October. At least that's what they said. Under regular trade in program, u can use it whenever.
Glad I called. So we have options either way.
