Amazon wants your old phone so you can buy a new one

Amazon Trade In Store

Looking to pick up a new Samsung Galaxy S5 or HTC One M8 over the next few days and weeks? What are you going to do with that old device? Amazon says they’ll take it, and they’ll even pay you for it.

Amazon’s Trade-In program is not necessarily new but, considering the timing, it’s worth reminding you that it exists. If you have an old smartphone and don’t plan on keeping it, you could earn a little scratch buy giving to Amazon. Regardless of whether you bought that phone from them, Amazon wants it. Actually, they’ll take all sorts of electronics, textbooks, CDs, movies, and video games. Go ahead, grab that box full of stuff you can’t part with and finally part with it.

Right now Amazon is offering great trade-in values* on top smartphones:

As long as your stuff matches the description you provide Amazon and is in at least “acceptable” condition, you should be good. The process is free (shipping, too) and takes up to 10 days to complete.
