Amazon Now Accepting iDevice Trade-Ins
Amazon added a boatload of new electronics to their fledgling Trade-In program, including iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches. The biggest surprise though, the trade-in value for your used devices doesn't suck.
However, what does suck, is you don't get cash for your products. Rather, Amazon credits your Amazon account with an Amazon Gift Card. Still, for those looking to purchase goods on Amazon the the proposed values are a pretty good deal.
Your old-as-Amy-Winehouse-looks original iPhone has a trade-in value of $69, and your 3GS is worth $162. Not exactly great, but not as big of a rip-off as Best Buy's soulless foray into the trade-in market. iPod classics can fetch you up to $114 for the higher capacity models, and a 64GB first generation iPad is worth $340.75.
The most valuable of course is the fully featured iPad 2 64GB model. Oddly enough the AT&T model will bring home a couple dollars more than the Verizon equivalent ($540 vs $538.75). And even more odd is the discrepency between white and black iPad 2's. White iPads are apparently worth $12 more than their black equivalent with a trade-in value of $552 for the 64GB 3G capable model.
This service offers a good value for those too lazy to sell the devices on their own, or are terrified of possibly being mugged during a Craigslist meetup.
