For the past few years Amazon has been offering Kindle customers the option to trade-in an old Kindle to get an Amazon credit, plus they’ll give you 20% off the price of a new Kindle.
The Kindle trade-in program is a good way to upgrade to a newer Kindle at a lower price, and Amazon will even apply trade-in discounts to Kindles that are on sale so you can get an even lower price.
Even if your old Kindle is broken and no longer works Amazon will still give you $5 for it plus 20% off the purchase of a new Kindle.
It’s a good way to get rid of an old or broken Kindle that you no longer use anymore.
They used to offer 25% off but they lowered it to 20% earlier in the year. Compared to this list of Kindle Trade-in values from 2019 all the prices have remained exactly the same so at least the values haven’t decreased at all over the past year.
The trade-in values vary a lot from one model to the next. Some aren’t worth the time, like the Kindle DX that’s only valued at $5 whether it works or not, but some of the other models have held their value pretty well. You can still get $50 for a working Kindle Voyage and the older Kindle Paperwhites are worth $25. When you combine that with 20% off on a new Kindle you can upgrade for less than you might expect. You could upgrade from a Paperwhite 1 to a Paperwhite 4 for only like $35 when Amazon has the Paperwhite on sale for $79 like they did last month for Prime Day.
Below is the list of current Kindle trade-in values for Kindles that are still in good working order and don’t have a damaged screen. If your Kindle has a cracked screen or if it doesn’t work then it’s only worth $5.
Amazon also has a 20% off trade-in deal for Fire tablets.
