Microsoft Trade In Program for Surface Devices

In case, if you guys did not know, Microsoft now has an online-trade in the program for Surface devices. If you guys are looking to upgrade from an older Surface device, then you will be able to head online, complete some forms, and also ship your old device. In order to get some money back towards your new Surface actually. In this article, we are going to talk about Microsoft Trade-In Program for Surface Devices. Let’s begin!

According to the online webpage for the program, the process basically takes four steps. First, you guys will have to buy a new Surface online at the Microsoft Store and then save your order details as a PDF receipt as well. You can then visit this webpage in order to fill out a form and THEN get trade-in value, through Microsoft’s partner, CExchange appraisal. Values will vary relying on which newer Surface model you purchased. As an example, we also found that a base model Surface Pro 6 to Surface Pro 7 upgrade would get us back $287 as well.

When you agree to the value, then you can upload your PDF receipt as proof of purchase to the CExchange trade-in portal as well. You will also receive verification of your Surface purchase within seconds actually. You should then get some shipping information in order to box-up and send back your old device. It must be done within 15 days actually, and CExchange will inspect your old Surface to determine its final value as well. If it does not meet the trade-in criteria, then CExchange might recycle it or return it to you free of charge as well.

When the process is complete, then you will get paid through PayPal or bank transfer within 14 days of your used device’s inspection. Even if the values are not as high as what you paid for your original Surface device actually. It is great to see Microsoft is now offering a way to recycle old devices and earn back some money too, without even dealing with eBay or any other websites.

Microsoft is also accepting phones, tablets, and also laptops from all the major manufacturers, that includes:

  • Apple
  • Acer
  • Asus
  • Dell
  • Lenovo
  • Microsoft
  • LG
  • BlackBerry
  • Google
  • HTC
  • Huawei
  • Motorola
  • Nokia (non-Windows phone)
  • OnePlus
  • Razer
  • Samsung
  • Vizio
  • Toshiba

The best Microsoft trade-in is for smartphones basically, unsurprisingly. Laptops, even a Surface Laptop 3 along with Core i5, only gets you $325. That seems just like a poor deal. It’s unclear if you can claim multiple devices to stack or not.
