    I need to figure out how to relock mine. It has the nice big unlock icon when booting up
    They really don't care. As long as it powers on and they can get the serial number

    A legitimate question is if they have none in the store and the coupon runs out, is the coupon still valid.
    My question, also, although I couldn't get them to take a tablet not in their system. If you check http://forums.bestbuy.com/t5/Compute...ht/true#M51045, you may see a response. BB does participate in the forum.

    Download Wugfresh you can put it back to factory and relock it like I did in anticipation of trading mine in also

    Anyone know if they'll give the $50 trade in for a Nook Color?

    Fastboot oem lock

    Or just download wugs toolkit, I'm sure that works also

    I used Wug's Toolkit and relocked. I went to BB and none in stock and they cannot order me one. The coupon expires 11/15 and he said there's nothing they can do if they don't get them in by the date

    Have them look up and see if they got any coming soon, or go to other local BB stores if any are near you and have them do the same. I went back to see if they could reserve me a white one if they get any and they said they could if you ask them only when they get any in stock and can only hold for a short time that day.

    I traded in my nexus 7 (2012) and got this deal...I hope this helps
    Did they only give you $20 for the Nexus 7 (2012) since that was what I was quoted for mine on their on-line trade in center?

    The promotion says you get a minimum $50 on your trade in, so even though your N7 only values at $20, they will give you $50 plus a $50 coupon off the N9.

    Likely you'll have to guide them through the process as their knowledge of this promo is inconsistent. I had to find the web page on bestbuy.com to show to the CS rep. Funny thing is that the floor rep knew all about it but the CS desk did not. I traded in my original Sammy 10.1 and eventually got the $50 trade-in promo allowance plus the $50 gift card, both of which I could apply to my N9 purchase.

    OK, so the Best Buy promo is good, but the HTC 50% off promo (that hardly anyone was able to take advantage of) was great.

    1) Who thinks that HTC will do good on their promise to do a better job with future promos?
    2) Who thinks that the Nexus 9 will go back on sale from HTC (or anyone else, for that matter) for $200?
    3) Who thinks that the Nexus 9 will sell for close to $200 for Black Friday?

    I'm going to wait for two things: fixing initial run issues, and price drop. I'll bet it might be 350 soon, and maybe 300+ some places for Christmas....I wish that Best Buy deal lasted longer...but they're probably all out now, and it's the first run of the pads.

    1) and 2) They'll probably do a better job but don't count on them putting any more units up at that price. They'll just let you know when they are all sold out.
    3) No way. Maybe $300ish with rebates or gift cards. All HTC was doing with their $199 promo was generating buzz. It only cost them a few hundred units.

    Just got the deal on a black 32gb, probably the last one. Saw on the screen only like 1 or 2 of black models at any store, but mostly 0 on hand. Used the $50 gift card for the purchase. Not bad for a Nexus 7 8gb model trade in.

    I also just used the trade-in promo to grab a black 32GB model. I asked the rep in the store if they were getting any white models in or could order me one and he told me that they were showing as unavailable for the store. Meaning you could order them through the website, but they couldn't get them in store. Seems kind of odd, but whatever. This was the only N9 my Best Buy had and I figure even if there is holiday promotion, it won't be more than $100 off. I've been wrong before though...

    I took avantage of the promotion yesterday. Traded in a Samsung Galaxy tab 2 7.0 and got the last 32gb in black that my Best Buy had.
    Out of curiosity, if you decide to return the nexus 9, how would they do it since you had to give them your old device?

    I attempted to trade in a Galaxy Tab 7.7 at my local best buy yesterday only to be told that "they don't have a pawn license from the city so they are only allowed to trade in items that were purchased there". Sounds pretty stupid to me.. they swore up and down that another best buy would be able to trade it in for me but I was already an hour from home and the next closest store was another 45 minutes away. Tried to set the deal up online today only to see that it ended. I truly, truly hate best buy 99% of the time. I think at this point though I'm just gonna wait a bit.. every android tablet I've bought has had extreme price drops within a month after I purchased it.

    Bought a gpad 8.3 full price brand new.. price took a ****. Bought a galaxy tab pro 8.4.... price took a ****. Now I'm basically trying to sell my surface pro 3 and my galaxy tab 8.4 pro and buy a nexus 9 and pocket the rest of the cash as I really don't need the both and the surface is overkill. They're up on swappa if anyone is interested =)

    My guess would be that if you return the N9, you would just get a Best Buy credit for the purchase price. I can't imagine they would give you your old device back.

    Yes you could use the $100 off the N9. I did it Friday. Got $50 ff my old Samsung 8.9 and the cover fits my N9 perfect
