Amazon wants your old electronics

Got some gadgets around the house you’re not using anymore?
Amazon may soon be willing to take them off of your hands.Amazon_logo  

The FT reports the online retailer is in the process of
setting up a trade-in program for consumer electronics, letting customers swap products they’re not using for Amazon gift cards.

It’s an expansion of sorts for Amazon, which kicked off a
video game trade-in program last year. That experiment was successful enough
for the company to begin accepting DVD and college text book trades as well.

It’s also a move to stay competitive. Best Buy currently
offers a similar program for laptops, mobile phones and other devices.

Amazon is reportedly in the process of recruiting software engineers to
create the service. As yet, there’s no timeline for launch.
