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