Say this for Microsoft, it's the only name vendor to go after the best-selling iPad directly with head-to-head comparison ads that claim Surface and other Windows tablets are better.

Now Microsoft is upping the ante with a new trade-in program that gives iPad users a minimum of $200 trade-in credit. 

Here's the deal. Microsoft says you can trade in a "gently used iPad 2,3 or 4" at Microsoft stores for a $200 gift card that can be used at the store towards the purchase of a new Surface RT or Surface Pro tablet or other products at the Microsoft Store (it can't be used online). 

Microsoft's Surface RT starts at $349. The 64G Surface Pro tablet that runs the full range of Windows desktop software is priced starting at $799. 

The offer is available now and runs until October 27, 2013 "in select Microsoft retail stores" in the U.S. (including Puerto Rico) and Canada).
