Microsoft is offering as much as $650 towards the purchase of a Surface Pro 3 when you trade in your MacBook Air.
However, there a few things you should know about. The offer says that “select” models of the MacBook Air are eligible for the trade in, but there is nothing in the offer that specifies which models are eligible.
Also, the trade-in is only valid in select Microsoft stores only. You can’t do this online. Plus, don’t even think about dusting off a broken MacBook Air; it has to be in working condition, as some of the offer’s conditions state.
“To be eligible for trade-in, device must power on to be considered working. Water-damaged devices and devices with cracked screens are not considered working devices for purposes of this offer.”
This comes after the Surface Pro 3 went on sale starting July 20. However, at this point, only the Core i5 version is available for purchase. The Core i3 and Core i7 models will be on the market starting July 1.
This trade in credit offer lasts until July 31, 2014, or “while supplies last.”
