In case you’re not familiar with Amazon’s trade-in program, it’s a terrific way to recycle your gear–and turn your old tech into an Amazon gift card that can be used for new tech. While Kindles, phones, cameras, and video games and consoles have been on the list for quite some time, laptops and netbooks have not–until today. Amazon has just announced that your portable computer can now be traded in, adding to its already long list of gadgets and devices. Here’s the official word from Amazon:
As you know, Amazon.com is constantly incorporating new products into its Trade-In Program and gathering customer feedback on what devices they’d like to see included in the future. Customers spoke and Amazon.com listened: starting today, laptops and netbooks are eligible for trade-in.
Amazon’s Trade-In Program is simple, offers competitive values and has extensive selection. The process is easy—just visit www.amazon.com/tradein, and search for the items you’d like to trade in. An Amazon.com Gift Card will be deposited into your account upon receipt of the items. Customers can trade-in their CDs, movies, textbooks, video games, laptops, netbooks and other electronics all in one place, even in one box! Plus, the Amazon Trade-In Program provides customers the convenience of free shipping and transparent, simple condition descriptions.
