Have an old “Droid” phone laying around? Or perhaps you know someone who wanted to experiment a little bit in college and wound up with an iPhone in their pocket? We all make mistakes. Well, starting today, you and even your OS challenged friend can can trade in those used smartphones (and more) on Amazon and trade-up into the wonderful world of Android.
That’s right, Amazon has just announced that they are starting a new program that allows you to trade in most of your old electronics, mp3 players and smartphones for store credit. Simply box up your old goods, ship them out and Amazon will give you the value in the form of a store credit. They even feature bonus trade-in deals of the day that give you even more credit for your buck.
Ironically, the Nexus One is currently valued at $130 while the iPhone 3GS is valued at $162. Go figure. Time to do a little treasure hunting in that old closet or desk drawer. Now, where did I leave my old Zune…?
