Limited time offer: $20 more on Kindle trade-ins

Many of us have older Kindle EBRs (E-Book Readers…not tablets) which we don’t use much, if at all. You might also be interested in one of the newer models, up to and including the Kindle Oasis (the current top of the line).

Amazon has had a trade-in program for some time (not really natively Amazon, but you can get to it through Amazon).

Some people have been disappointed in the amounts, but used electronics just typically don’t have much value. I used to teach QuickBooks, and when I was explaining depreciation, I would jokingly say that a computer depreciated 100% by the time you got it to the parking lot from the store. 😉

Right now, through the end of the year, Amazon has a special deal which gives you an additional $20 on your trade-in!

Kindle Trade-in @ Amazon.com (at AmazonSmile: benefit a non-profit of your choice by shopping*)

Looks like you can only do it once, but you can do it for up to five devices per account/person.

These are the ones you can get:

Interestingly, they use this to also promote the

Amazon Pop-Up Stores (at AmazonSmile*)

They list that page as “Amazon retail locations” and even though they are “pop-ups”, which suggests existence for a limited time, they certainly make it seem like they have a solid presence. They list five specific stores where you can trade in your Kindle (in five states) and go on to list more than thirty.

I think the trade-in is a nice deal, and that some people will take advantage of it, either in the pop-up stores or online…

*When you shop at AmazonSmile, half a percent of your purchase price on eligible items goes to a non-profit you choose. It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. Shop ’til you help! 🙂

    Unfortunately, the only Kindles I’d be willing to trade in are my DX (too heavy and clunky) or my K1 and they aren’t part of the deal. I’m hanging on to the K3’s until the batteries will no longer hold a charge.

      Thanks for writing, Lady!

      We had to replace my Significant Other’s Fire, because the battery is dying. It really appears that it will stop charging altogether at some point…I’d say it took 24 hours to charge 24% this time. 😉

      The big problem is that Scrabble is one of the main reasons my SO uses a Fire…and it’s not released for the latest gen (which is what we got as a replacement).

      • Lady Galaxy Says:

        I think the battery on my first K3 might outlast the 5 way controller. The bottom edge of the square is getting very thin in the center from where my thumb nail hits it when I use it to page down. I wish all devices with rechargeable batteries offered a way to replace those batteries, but it seems to be part of planned obsolescence.
