iPad Air 2’s thinner design, improved specs, and Touch ID may not be enough of an upgrade to entice iPad Air owners, but there’s little doubt that it’s a gigantic leap forward for iPad 2 users.

If you’re planning to jump into a new iPad Air 2 then you’ll have a few options with what to do with your old iPad: sell it privately, pass it down to a friend or family member, keep it as a backup, or trade it. If you opt to go the trade route, then you’re going to want to check out this special promotion Best Buy is currently running…
