Have an unused laptop or netbook lying around? Amazon would like to take that old beast and give you credit towards your next Amazon purchase. Part of their electronics trade-in program, this new inclusion of laptops means you don’t have to bother trying to sell your old laptop yourself.
Search for your laptop or netbook on the trade-in page, find the right model, then select whether your device is in like new, good, or acceptable condition. No water or fire damaged laptops accepted. Amazon pays for the shipping.
You’ll find more laptops eligible for trade-in than at similar reselling sites like Gazelle, but not all old laptops may be eligible. You might not get as much of an offer as if you sold the laptop yourself or used another site like Cash For Laptops. Still, it’s great that Amazon now takes laptops and if you’re a frequent Amazon buyer, the Amazon credit/gift card is as good as cash.
