    I don't know if there is already a thread for this topic, but I really wish there was a Trade-In/Upgrade program for Razer products. A few months ago I purchased the RBS (Kaby Lake). At the time I was skeptical about buying it because I wasn't a huge fan of the big bezels and smaller 12.5" display but the specs are everything I need. Thinking that Razer wouldn't make a larger display model anytime soon, I went ahead and bought it. But what do you know, they did (-.-). Now I can't exchange mine in for the new one even though it is still under warranty but way past the 2 week period that I can return for a refund.

    Razer should have some sort of program or option to trade in your device and get credit for it, depending on wear, damage, and how old it is. The newer one is the same price and specs for the model I have now. It just bothers me because that never 13.3" to me is my perfect ultrabook that I would like, but I am not dishing out another $1500 for one. That would require me to sell this one and I feel like that will be a hassle.

    So if there are any staff seeing this, please consider starting up a program like this. I feel like a lot of people would appreciate this idea.

    I think it will be better to sell it in Ebay or in Germany there are Rebuy or Asgoodasnew where you can Sale your gadgets with better selling value than trade in Program, because like apple, they put very bad value on the old model, through Asgoodasnew here i was be able to purchase new IPhone I think with only about €100 lose. But if i trade in at that time to Apple i will lose almost over €300 of my one generation old iPhone even in mint condition.

    I agree with this. Trade in programs are usually a rip off, and you can usually get way more just selling it yourself online. Gamestop is a perfect example of this. You trade in your game and they give you like $2, when you could sell it yourself and get an easy $20

    Yes after get ND collection PS4 version, tried to trade in my old PS3 uncharted series 1~3 to GameStop and bump for €3, really!? Put it on EBay Kleinanzeigen (EBay free advertisement like Yakaz) for €15, and next day sold.

    You would still most likely get ripped off with the amount of zSilver they would be able to give you for them to still make a decent profit off it
  7. Agreed but you will never know, unless it happens.

    Gamestop is the worse. I used to do trade in's until I wised up and realized they were ripping me off for pennies on the dollar. I'd rather break old games myself then trade them in for a pittance. I used to think I was so smart too, trading in old systems for money towards a new system. Such a waste.

    You will never make the same amount of money selling something to someone else, who then also has to sell that item, because they have to make a profit too. You will pretty much be better of 99% of the time selling it yourself, so then you get all the profit, instead of you getting part of the profit and the person you sold it to getting part of the profit

    Personally, I've never been a fan of trade-in's at all. Not because of how little money you get for the items, but rather because you just never know what's going to be worth something to collectors in 10, 20, 40 years. There are things from my childhood that are worth a small fortune now that I wish I'd laid claim to instead of leaving them at home with my parents so my brothers could use them, only to have my mom donate them all to Goodwill down the road after we grew up.
