I was completely ripped off by Amazon's trade in program. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD ANYONE AGREE TO ACCEPT A LOWER PRICE THAN EXPECTED INSTEAD OF HAVING THE TRADE IN RETURNED!
I just sent in my iPad (First Generation) for trade in. The day I bought it I had a 3M screen protector put on and I put it in a $90 hard leather case. When I recently mailed it in for trade in there was not a scratch on it and I had the original box. I hoped for the best and described the condition "As New" hoping for the $287 return. Ok, I'm not naive and I know the company wants to make a profit so I was prepared for them to downgrade it to "Good" condition for a $257 return. I was appaled when I received an email informing me the iPad was downgraded to "Acceptable" for $198 credit.
Until today I thought Amazon was a superior company and one that I do a lot of business with. I learned my lesson the hard way and I hope this posting prevents others from making the same mistake I did.
