This tutorial explains the Amazon Trade-In Program and how to trade in your Firestick, Fire TV, or other device for Amazon credit.
Trading in your Firestick, Fire TV, or other streaming device is a great way to earn credit if you are wanting to upgrade to a newer device.
This is a great way to purchase newer options such as the Fire TV Stick 4k Max.
Oftentimes, the trade-in value for your returned product is minimal.
As you will see below, credit is usually less than $10 for most devices even if they are in perfect condition.
However, this is still a great way to dispose of older devices and put some money towards a new device if you are in the market.
What is Amazon Trade-In?
The Amazon Trade-In program allows customers to trade in old devices and gadgets for Amazon credit/gift cards.
There are tons of items that users can trade in including streaming devices, home security, routers, phones, and more.
This is great for cord-cutters who use various media devices such as the Firestick and Fire TV.
Because Amazon is constantly upgrading these media players, the older devices can become obsolete.
Many want to update to a new device but still have an older variation.
With Amazon Trade-In, you can send in your old device and gain credit towards the latest Firestick, Fire TV, and more.
Currently, Amazon accepts trade-ins for the following items:
- Streaming Devices
- Bluetooth Speakers
- Home Security Devices
- Wireless Routers
- Cell Phones
- Gaming Equipment
- and more
In order to use Amazon Trade-In, you must have an active Amazon account to receive credit for your item.
