Amazon has launched an online trade-in program which allows people to trade old electronic goods, video games, movies and textbooks in exchange for gift cards. All you need to do is head to Amazon’s trade-in website and pick the item you’d like to trade in. Amazon will accept only those items that are listed on their Trade-In stores. To find whether your old junk is eligible for trade-in, you can search by product title, ISBN, or product model number or manufacturer.
Once you decide what you want to trade in, you have to specify the condition they’re in (like new, good or acceptable). Print the shipping label Amazon provides you, stick it on a box and send it on its way. Shipping is free. When Amazon receives your old gear, you’ll see store credit deposited straight into your Amazon account. The credit you receive will depend on the physical condition of the shipped product.
A huge number of items ranging from cell phones, digital cameras, tablets, computers, and MP3 players are accepted. For example, more than 1400 camera models, about a hundred cell phones, and more than 300 MP3 players are accepted. Over 140,000 movies and TV shows on DVD and Blu-ray Disc are eligible for trade in.
Amazon’s Trade-in program is currently available only in the US.
