Best Buy's return policy clearly states that returns on iPads must be within 14 days. Try taking the product and the packaging back with the receipt and your photo ID and, if you have it, the card you purchased it with just in case. Talk to the rep, tell them you want the iPad 3. If you're over 14 days, you should be able to get a store-credit you can use for the iPad 3 when it comes out March 17. Hope that helps!
