When it comes to brands you trust, taking advantage of trade-in programs is so beneficial. Trade-in offers not only promote proper recycling practices, but also allow you to save big—whether it’s time for an upgrade on a product, or you simply want to try something new from the brand.

Even Amazon has a trade-in program. At the Amazon Trade-In Hub, you can first select one of the eligible categories to search if you have an eligible device associated with your Amazon account: Kindle tablets, streaming media players, bluetooth speakers and headphones, home security devices, wireless routers, cell phones, or gaming.

If your device is eligible, you’ll be led through a series of steps to determine the estimated trade-in value. The retailer provides free shipping for you to send in the item.

Once the items have been received by an Amazon facility, appraised and accepted, Amazon will apply an Amazon.com gift card equal to the trade-in value of your old device(s) to your Amazon account.

Below, we’ve rounded up the eligible devices you can trade in now for credit.
