This could be turning into an iPad Christmas.
During the weekend between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the gadget-buyback website Gazelle.com saw iPad trade-ins nearly triple from the same period last year, CEO Israel Ganot told CNBC.
And the big surge in trade-ins could mean that consumers will buy newer Apple models, either for themselves or to give as gifts.
"We're seeing a lot of of tablets getting traded in, but predominantly we're seeing second-generation and third-generation iPads," Ganot said. "We're clearly seeing iPads and tablets as a new growth category for us."

Consumers typically sell their older gadgets to Gazelle this time of year to "get some cash to buy gifts for the holidays," Ganot said.
