Microsoft offers notebook trade-in deal

In an attempt to boost the popularity of Windows 10, Microsoft has started a new and rather interesting campaign to get you rid you of old technology – you can now sell your old notebook to Microsoft and get cash for it!

Of course things are not so simple – to qualify you must purchase a new notebook that sells for USD 599 or more directly from Microsoft and the device must also run Windows 10. In addition your old notebook must be six years old or newer and it must be in working condition, include a power supply and feature a display that is at least 11.3-inches in size or larger.

Also, depending on the model the amount of money you will get back varies – for returning an Apple MacBook or iMac Microsoft will give you USD 300 since these devices carry the most resale value. Other notebooks, including 2-in-ones and all-in-ones will bring you USD 200 and nothing more.

Interested? Then, be quick – the promotion lasts from October 14, 2015 until October 20, 2015 but the good news is that you have a bit longer than this to submit an online trade-in claim – you have 14 days from the purchase date. The deal covers only the United States and a few more countries such as Brazil, Taiwan, India, Canada, France and Germany.
