Microsoft reportedly set to offer $200 for iPhone trade-ins too

Got an old iPhone lying around? It could get you $200 in cash to spend at a Microsoft Store. A couple of weeks ago Microsoft started a promotion that rewards iPad trade-ins for a minimum of $200. Now Microsoft is allegedly taking that idea and applying it to iPhones as well.

Forbes is reporting that Microsoft will start giving $200 for iPhone trade-ins this Friday. The promotion will work with the iPhone 5 and 4S only.¬†You could probably get more on Craigslist or eBay, but it’s a nice option if you’re already thinking about getting a new Windows Phone or Surface. Microsoft seems to be going hard at Apple lately with their TV ads, iPad trade-in, and now iPhone trade-in.

Do you think their strategy is working? Microsoft has been the target of many companies in the past; it’s interesting to see them develop into the role of the hunter. Anyone have any iDevices collecting dust?
