    Well, I hate to say it but my old Playbook has been collecting dust for a long time now. I pretty much just use 7 and 9 inch Nooks I picked up really cheap. I'm thinking of trading in the PB for $50.00 and getting another cheap tab like the $89.99 Asus Memo at Bestbuy. Has anyone had luck trading in their PB at Bestbuy?

    I didn't know Best Buy had a program like that. Is it at just certain ones?

    They run it every now and then. I traded in two 4" stealth tablets last year for 2 $50.00 gift cards and used them for a Canon printer (I got the Stealth tablets for $6.00 each!!). Not sure if it's nation wide but it's going on till 4-18 in my area. I'm just thinkin $50.00 is probably pretty good for the old 16gb PB. Don't really need another tablet but I'm guessing I'll get some good use out of the cheap Asus Memo.

    I had a memo ME173X. Other than you couldn't properly root it and the stereo speakers fired out of one slot located on the back side, it was a decent device. Personally I don't think it holds a candle to the PlayBook for media consumption and the reason I switched from it to the PlayBook. You certainly can't beat android's plethora of apps, just don't expect the best sound quality out of it.

    Thanks Rusty. After a little research, the Memo looks like a bad idea. The Galaxy Tab 3 7 incher looks a lot better at $120.00. I might even like it more then my Nook hd.

    I've always been intrigued by the hi sense sero 7 pro although it might be a little hard to come by brand new so long after being introduced.

    After further research, the PB is just as good if not better then most of todays low end tablets except for the speed thing. Since I no longer use it, I'll probably still trade it in for the fifty bucks and find something else to purchase.

    I don't need to save anything on my PB before I trade it in this week. Does a security wipe pretty much clear everything off and reset it to new condition????

    The $50 trade in is for Best Buy US, I imagine? I tried entering my 16 gb PB in the Canadian trade-in program, which spit out $15.

    It does not matter what the trade in value says during these promotions. Bestbuy will give you a $50.00 gift card that you can use for whatever you want. I did it last year with two 4" Stealth tabs I picked up for $6.00 each and got a $100.00 gift card which I used to get a Cannon printer. They told me yesterday that the gift card does not have an expiration date and a working Playbook, without a cracked screen, is fine for this promotion. This promotion ends on 4-18. If ya have some other functioning junk tabs laying around there's a good chance they will work. For some reason, Nooks do not qualify.

    Agreed, must be a US thing. Don't think I've seen the same offer up here in Canada. I show $20 for my 32GB PB. I'll hold onto mine for $20 as I'm not in the mood to spend a few hundred on a new tablet anytime soon.

    I was able to trade in my 16gb for a $50.00 gift card today without any problems. It has to boot up and not have a cracked screen so if your battery has seen better days, make sure ya charge it just before you go in. They did not request the charger. Pretty sure this offer ends on the 18th.
