Best Buy currently has a promotion where you can trade in any working laptop get a minimum $75 Best Buy® gift card and a $75 trade-in receipt coupon toward the Samsung Notebook 9 Pro. This is a really good deal if you have an old, POS laptop that otherwise would be worth almost nothing.
I took advantage of this deal to trade in my old laptop that I’ve had since 2010. It has been on a shelf collecting dust the past couple of years since it stopped working correctly. It would power on, but then get stuck forever trying to load Windows. The terms of the promotion state that the laptop needs to be working, but it isn’t clear what that means. When I traded mine in the associate just asked if it still powered on. Based on that, I’m thinking that a laptop that powers on will be considered a working laptop for this promotion.
It only took about ten minutes to get my $75 Best Buy gift card. I also received a coupon for $150 off a Samsung Notebook 9 Pro which is worthless to me since I won’t be buying one. The gift card is all I cared about. I already used the coupon to buy a couple of items that I will sell on Amazon. That should result in turning my $75 Best Buy gift card into more than $75 cash.
If you want to know more about the promotion here is a link to the trade-in page at Best Buy. Once you put in your laptop’s specs it will show the promotion. I’ve also included the promotion small print below. The promotion only runs through July 15th so don’t put off doing this deal for long. You’re not likely to find a better deal for getting rid of a crappy, old laptop.
