Microsoft has been on a hard campaign to talk the iPad down and make the Surface seem like the better of the two. We won’t get into that. Your favorite is up to you. However, it’s clear that Microsoft is taking shots at the iPad through its advertising campaigns and now with a trade-in offer.
Microsoft is offering a $200 gift card for iPad trade-ins in hope that users use that credit towards a Surface. Now, that credit can go into anything at the Microsoft Store, but the company obviously wants to target potential Surface users.
Well, at least they’re pushing the tablet hard instead of just forgetting about it (Remember the Kin? It’s okay, we’d forgotten about it until just right now.)
