Microsoft Store

Microsoft is kicking its Recycle for Rewards program into full gear by offering retail store credit if you turn in your old gadget or device. Of course, your device will have to be appraised based on its condition and current market value.

“To get started, simply bring your computer, phone, or other device to the Answer Desk at the Microsoft retail store. We will appraise its value based on condition and current market value. If it’s determined to have value, we will provide you with a Microsoft retail store credit. If it doesn’t have value, we will wipe it of all data and safely recycle it for you. The process is fast, easy, and free of charge,” Microsoft stated on its website.

Microsoft will be accepting qualified laptops and tablets, cell phones, digital audio players, and video game consoles as well as video games. If you turn in a console or PC, you must also turn in the power cord and the device must not be password protected. Microsoft will then offer a gift card that may equal trade-in value.

Microsoft would also like to remind everyone that the software giant ‘supports the responsible disposal and recycling of electronic products.’ In case you had any doubts. Head over to your local Microsoft Store to check out this program.
