Trade in an Old Kindle and Amazon Will Give You 25% Off a New One

Amazon just gave us a reason to go find that an old dead Kindle lying in a drawer somewhere and blow the dust off.

The retailer is running a special trade-in deal on its site right now where you can send them an old Kindle and collect both a trade-in credit as well as a coupon worth 25% off the price of a new Kindle.

The offer is good for all Kindle models, including the original Kindle. Yes, Amazon will pay you $5 for that beloved old clunker, and give you a discount on the replacement that is worth up to $50 off the price of a new Kindle Oasis.

That is a great deal if you are like me and are looking for a new Kindle (I need one to give away in a raffle).

Are you going to take Amazon up on their offer?

    I think I’m going to go for this. I’ve got an old (2011) basic Kindle that I inherited when my mom passed last summer. According to Amazon it’s still worth $15 and that along with the 25% coupon will let me get a new Paperwhite for about $78. Thanks for the tip, Nate!
