I was given an iPad, is it worth keeping?

    I don't feel like paying for 3G and I never had interest in it but I don't even know what they can do. Should I:

    Keep it?

    Sell it on eBay? (12+% fee though)

    or Make a Youtube giveaway and CPA lock a sign up site?

    Get a giveaway going with CPA offers, you can make a killing if you do it correctly. If all goes to shit you can just fake the giveaway and keep it.

    Same thought I had.

    Youtube giveaway and CPA lock sites would be silly. If you think they would be profitable, you don't really need to even own an iPad. So if thats the route you want to take, just do it. If you don't make enough money from it, just be like oh sorry contest is cancelled bye. The people who do these giveaways don't actually plan on giving away an iPad.

    If you will never use it, try selling it on craigslist first, and then ebay. Or maybe put some postings up in a local college/university for sale. Ebay should be your last resort due to fake bidders/scammers/service fees.

    Try all the free options of selling first.

    Selling it on craigslist is your best bet.

    haha yeah I wouldn't actually give it away through a Youtube offer but the idea of doing that sparked when I got it in the mail. Don't know why I included the last option not that I think about it :rolleyes:

    My wife is on hers more than her laptop. We initially bought a droid but my step son was over the house one day and really liked the droid so we gave it to him.

    Then I went and bought my wife the iPad... much nicer and very functional.

    I'd be keeping it... it will come in handy if you travel too.

    yeah, id go with promoting it.

    doing a fake giveaway with pics of proof might be too blackhat but it would be profitable IMO.
