Amazon has started a new trade-in promotion to get a discount on the purchase of a new Kindle when trading in an old one.
You get the value of the trade in the form of an Amazon gift card, plus a 25% discount on a new Kindle ereader.
They used to offer a $20 trade-in bonus so this new promotion is considerably better unless you’re buying the basic Kindle.
They also offered $50 off before but that applied to the WiFi Kindle Paperwhite only.
This new offer is open to all current Kindles models, including the new Kindle Oasis. That means you could get a significant discount when trading in an old Kindle, and it doesn’t even have to work to get the 25% off credit.
Depending on which model you choose, you can get up to $87.50 off (25% of $350).
The terms say the discount can only be used once and it can’t be combined with other offers, so waiting for the next sale is unlikely to work, but the discount is better than usual for the more expensive models, especially since the Kindle Oasis never goes on sale and the Voyage rarely goes on sale.
If you have an old Kindle laying around that you don’t want to use anymore this is a good way to get rid of it and upgrade to a newer model for 25% off the regular price.
