Offers eGift cards in return for used electronics

Staples has partnered with the reselling service Gazelle to offer its customers trade-ins for their electronics. The Staples Tech Trade-In program targets home users and small-businesses, and offers them gift cards for their used electronics. The cards are redeemable at any Staples store, but not online.

Staples is offering trade-ins for more than 20 product categories. To trade in a device, a user must go to a dedicated Staples site, answer a few questions and then ship the product to a recycling center. Shipping is free. After the condition of the product is verified, the user will receive an e-mail with the gift card information.

This new program complements an in-store recycling program that the office supply retailer already is running. The company has set a goal of recycling 40 million pounds of electronics by 2020.

Gazelle is known for its direct used device resale system, where those trading in old hardware are virtually guaranteed to get money back on devices in good condition.
