Amazon today announced their trade-in program for used electronics. It’s kind of a win-win situation for everyone. Amazon buys stuff you don’t want, you get some money for it and someone else buys it at a lower price than they normally would. Why don’t we take a look at what we can get for trading in our iDevices? All of these are considering your device works and is in “like new” condition, of course. It’s also worth knowing that Amazon trade-ins work best if you go for a gift card. This is standard for trade-ins as companies want you to spend money with them. Still, let’s take a look at Amazon’s trade-in credit. Again, if you opt for the maximum amount, you will get a gift card. The following are the Amazon trade-in values we found after some searching around.

Interestingly, the iPhone 4 value changes depending on carrier as well. For instance, the 16GB AT&T iPhone 4 trades in for more than the 32GB Verizon model. The phone’s color does not make a difference.

Is it a deal?

Some of these trade-in values aren’t bad. The downside is that to get the maximum amount, you must trade for an Amazon gift card. That’s not terrible, given that you can buy almost anything on Amazon. The problem is that you are limited to their store. As we mentioned, of course they want you shop there.

It’s also worth noting that you may be able to get a little more by selling your gadget rather than trading it in, but the convenience of a quick trade-in may be worth the monetary difference for some people.
