Best Buy is offering Windows XP users to trade in their old PCs and buy an Acer C720 for just $99.

Best Buy?s announcement reads:

?Get a minimum of $100 toward the purchase of a new Windows computer, Apple? computer or Chromebook1 when you trade in a working Windows XP laptop at a Best Buy store.

Now through 4/19/2014, bring in your working Windows XP laptop and trade it in for a $25 gift card plus a discount coupon good for $75 toward the purchase of a new Windows computer, Apple computer or Chromebook. This offer supersedes trade-in values provided by the estimator tool on our Trade-in page.?

This means that starting April 6, Best Buy will offer a minimum $100 credit when a Windows XP user trades-in his old XP PC. Since Bet Buy is selling the Acer C720 Chromebook for $199, applying the credit offered today, a user would be able to get the C720 for only $99.

The announcement also said that the offer is valid in-store only and that the coupon redemption is good through May 3. Also, the offer is limited up to three (3) trade-in transactions per person, per day.

Moreover, Best Buy?s announcement also said that not all products are eligible for trade-in and that trade-in value may vary. Condition, documentation and accessories may affect value.

XP users who will trade in their old PC must have their device ?power on? to be considered working, according to Best Buy. Water-damaged devices and devices with cracked screens are not considered working devices for purposes of this offer.

Payment is by Best Buy gift card.
