Online retailer Flipkart is offering up to Rs 9,000 off for the first-gen iPad mini 16GB Wi-Fi only model in exchange of your own gadgets, which could be smartphones, tablets and even laptops or netbooks. BGR India had earlier broken the story about Apple’s plans to introduce this buyback scheme that would offer a minimum of Rs 5,000 off on the iPad mini 16GB. Provided you are exchanging the right device, you can buy the iPad mini 16GB Wi-Fi only for Rs 12,900.
Flipkart has provided a list of gadgets that are eligible under the buyback and how much you can expect to get in return. The buyer will have to hand over the device to the delivery person, who brings the iPad mini and will have to ensure that the device is in working condition without any physical damage.
According to the terms, the buyer will get a bill for Rs 21,900 and a separate credit note will be sent along with the bill for the amount depending on the device being exchanged. It is not clear at the moment whether the user will have to pay the full price for the iPad mini (Rs 21,900) and get the balance as store credit. Flipkart will also deduct an unspecified amount as shipping and handling charges for the exchanged device.

UPDATE: DealsForGeeks reports that users will only pay the differential amount (Rs 21,900 – buyback cost of the exchanged gadget). Flipkart is charging Rs 50 as handling and delivery charges for the exchanged gadget.
