Did you know Amazon has a Trade-In Program?
The Amazon Trade-In Program allows customers to receive an Amazon Gift Card in exchange for over a million eligible items including DVDs, CDs, video games, electronics, and books. It isn’t even required that you originally purchased them from Amazon. The process is easy and convenient with free shipping, an immediate offer, and no required registration or listing.
Here’s how Amazon’s Trade-In Program works:
1. Gather Up Extra DVDs, Books, Video Games, and/or Electronics
Go through your home and find any DVDs, Books, Video Games, or electronics you no longer need or use.
2. Search For the Product on the Amazon Trade-In Store
Do a search on the Amazon Trade-In Store to see how much Amazon will pay you for a Trade In. If the price seems fair, click through to verify the condition, title, and price. If your item is not listed in the Trade-In Store, then they currently do not have an offer for it. However the Trade-In program is being constantly updated with new titles, so check back regularly.
3. Print Your Shipping Label
Follow the steps to print the postage-paid shipping label. You can choose to go with free UPS shipping (you’ll need to drop your package off at the nearest UPS location) or shipping via the U.S. Postal Service (you can give your package to your mail carrier or drop it off at the nearest post office).
4. Ship Your Item
Ship out the item in a timely manner. Once it has been received by Amazon, they will check it to verify that it is eligible and in the condition you promised. Items considered to be not acceptable will be returned. Return shipping is free, but you will not receive any Amazon.com Gift Card amount for the returned items.
5. Once Your Item is Approved, Get Your Amazon Credit!
Once your item is received and verified, you’ll receive an e-mail notification within 2 business days informing you whether your items were accepted or rejected (you can track it online). They say it can take up to 10 days. You can then use this credit to purchase anything on Amazon.com.
They have many ways of tracking things online so you can watch your items go through the process.
