I recently used the Amazon Trade-In Program on a stack of books that I had read as well as video games and DVDs that my kids no longer played with or watched and got over $90 in Amazon Gfit Card credits!
It’s a simple 3 step process and I wanted to share it with you today:
1. I entered the title or UPC Code onto the Amazon Trade-In Program page, used the provided criteria to grade the condition of the item, and finalized the sale like any other Amazon transaction.
2. I printed off the prepaid shipping label and dropped the package at the post office.
3. I received an email saying the items had arrived at Amazon, then got an electronic Amazon gift card about a week later.
Take a look around your house and if you have some stuff you are not using, give the Amazon Trade-In a try!
Here are the details directly from Amazon:
What is the Amazon 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. The process is easy and convenient with free shipping, an immediate offer, and no required registration or listing.
How long will it take to receive payment once I trade in my item?
Depending on your location, trade-in submissions may take up to 10 business days to arrive before your submission is processed. The packages you sent can be tracked anytime in Your Trade In Account.
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 find the status of your trade-in anytime in Your Trade-In Account. Once your trade-in has been paid, you’ll see the amount when viewing your Your Gift Card Balance
What condition do my items need to be in?
In general, all items must be in at least acceptable condition and the item you wish to trade in must match the exact version displayed in the Trade-In search results or on the product page on Amazon.com. You can find the full condition descriptions by visiting our Eligible Products and Condition Criteria Page.
Are there any shipping or other fees?
When using the pre-paid shipping label, shipping trade-in items is completely free, and there are no other fees. When submitting a trade-in, customers will print a pre-paid U.S. Postal Service shipping label for sending in all items. If a trade-in item is not accepted, and is returned, there is no cost for return shipping.
