Amazon has offered a trade-in program for DVDs, video games and textbooks for a while. Now, the online retailer is expanding the program.
It will now pay you for your old, unwanted electronics. Just select the items you want to trade in. Then, specify the condition of the items.
Amazon will provide free shipping for your items. It will then send you a gift card for the trade-in value. Amazon says it usually takes less than 48 hours to issue the gift card.
There are a lot of online services that accept used gadgets. So, it makes sense to compare trade-in values on other sites.
To give you an idea of what to expect, a 16GB iPhone 4 will earn you up to $63. Amazon is paying up to $112 for Canon Powershot SX510. Of course, prices vary based on an item's age and condition.
