If you’ve been wanting to trade in that dusty old Sony Reader for a shiny new Amazon Kindle, you’re in luck. Amazon has extended their trade-in program to include non-Amazon e-readers.
According to TechCrunch you can get anywhere from $25 to $135, depending on the condition and model of your old e-reader. Instead of cold-hard cash, Amazon will send your payment in the form of a gift card.
The process is relatively simple: Just enter in your product’s information and Amazon will give you a pre-paid shipping label to print out (that’s right, free shipping!). Throw the package in the mail and you’re set.
If you’re short of cash, like I frequently am, this might be a good way to help finance that new Kindle Fire you’ve been drooling over since it has been announced. Or, you can blow all the money on ebooks. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
