Did you know that Amazon will “buy” your old phones and other gadgets and pay you back in Amazon gift cards? I haven’t used their trade-in program, but a quick read of the details makes it sound pretty inviting.
Here’s how it works… You go to the Amazon Trade-in page, scroll through the list of items that you’ve already bought from them to see how much you can earn for each item. If you don’t see an item on the list that you’d like to sell, just do a search to see if they’ll buy it.
Hmmm, I’m no longer using this router… maybe it’s time to trade it in!
Amazon will send you a paid shipping label, you box up the item, ship it to them for free, wait for them to appraise it and then within 10 days, you get an Amazon gift card that you can use on anything that Amazon sells. If you change your mind after they tell you how much they will pay or if there’s a problem with the item, they will ship it back for free.
It might be a great way to unload your old phone in anticipation of buying the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8 or iPhone 8.
