Pre-Order If You've Locked in a Great Trade-in Price
If you've have an iPad (or another tablet) in great working condition and you're able to lock down an excellent trade-in price today, you should think about putting in a pre-order.
Sites like NextWorth are buying old iPads and Apple itself is accepting old devices. Trading in your current tablet at the right time can help you save some money on your next tablet.
Trade-in prices typically fluctuate when new models are announced, but if you can find a great trade-in price that you're comfortable with before the iPad mini 5's release date next week, you might want to go ahead and put in your pre-order.
Locking in a trade-in and pre-ordering ensures that you can get the iPad mini 5 model you want and get it in time to transfer all of your data and then send the old model in without feeling rushed.
