NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Target (TGT) is jumping on the deal bandwagon with Best Buy (BBY) and Wal-Mart (WMT) in a battle to win the mobile consumer and get rid of excess Apple (AAPL) iPhones and iPads.

From now through Saturday, March 15, Target is offering customers a minimum of $150 toward the purchase of a new iPad when they trade in a working iPad 2 or newer version.

Guests will also receive a $30 Target gift card with the purchase of an iPad mini with Retina display Wi-Fi 16GB for $399 or any iPad Air Wi-Fi 16GB for $499. For even more savings, guests can look forward to an additional 5% off when they shop with a Target REDcard, the company said.

The trade-in offer is only valid in stores. Not all Target stores participate in the trade-in program, so check to make sure your local store does.

Target is also looking to boost its trade-in cell phone program. Guests who trade in their used working cellphones through March 22 will receive credit, in the form of a Target gift card, for the value of the device, plus $50 extra for trading in a device toward the purchase of a new iPhone 5s or 5c.

Target is selling the iPhone 5c 16GB for $49.99 with a qualifying two-year plan and data through Verizon (VZ), Sprint (S) and AT&T (T). The iPhone 5s 16GB is on sale for $149.99 with a similar qualifying plan.
