Amazon is offering 25% off a new Echo device + Gift Card when you trade-in a speaker or Echo

Similar to the streaming player trade in that many of you took advantage of to get a great deal on a Fire TV Cube, Amazon is now offering 25% off a new Echo device when you trade in a speaker or older Echo product. The program is very straightforward. You select the speaker or Echo model you want to trade-in. You’re told how much credit you’ll get for it and are given a free shipping label. When Amazon receives your speaker/Echo, you’ll receive the credit and the next time you purchase an Echo device, 25% will automatically be deducted at checkout.

The main benefit of this trade-in program is the 25% Echo discount because the amount that Amazon offers in credit for the actual trade-in isn’t much. A 2nd-gen Echo Dot will earn you between $2-$5, depending on its condition, but you can then turn around and use the 25% discount on a new Amazon Echo Show and save $57. That makes the trade-in well worth it.

Amazon’s trade-in programs are very lenient with approvals. The item being traded-in doesn’t need to be working or even have its cables or power adapter. If, for whatever reason, Amazon doesn’t accept your traded-in device, they’ll ship it back to you for free, so there’s no risk in trying.

The whole trade-in process tends to take about 2 weeks from shipment to approval, so if you’re thinking of using the 25% discount during the upcoming Black Friday sales, be sure to get your trade-in sent as soon as possible. I personally was able to use my trade-in credit on a streaming device during Prime Day to stack my discount on top of the already reduced Prime Day price of a Fire TV Cube, but it’s unknown if the same will be possible with this 25% discount and any Black Friday sales on Echo devices that might occur.

    Does the discount also work on refurbished Echo products?

    Interesting, the first generation Echo Dot, is not eligible for this deal.

    I traded in a 1st gen Echo (full size) and got $50 for it! Plus I got the 25% discount on a new Echo Show. I got the $50 gift card and the 25% discount the moment I clicked SUBMIT on my trade in. I guess Amazon must like me. (I hope they don’t find that it was a mistake).
