Arrow Amazon Offering Up to $135 For Used Kindles

From Pcmag: "Reluctant to ditch your year-old Kindle Keyboard for the Kindle Fire tablet that ships on November 15? Amazon has added Kindle devices to its Trade-In program, offering between $28-135 in Amazon credit for your used Amazon e-readers."

Link: Amazon.com: Electronics › Electronics Trade-In ›"kindle"

Maybe time to get rid of my old Kindle 2!

Given how little Amazon is offering for the trade-in, you'd be better off selling your K2.

If what's been posted about KF8 is correct, you'd be best to sell your K2 now before the news gets out the the value plummets.

Yeah, those seem really low to me as well. I'd rather sell it on Craigslist.

Considering how I have only had my K3 3G for 5 months, that's really low. But if they gave half of what it cost, you could get a new one for free and I guess they wouldn't like that.

I really don't like the keyboard so I don't use it - it would have been nice to get more on a trade in because I think I would like the touch. Oh well, at least I got the K3 free from a credit card offer.

Maybe they want to take all the old models out of circulation and support only the current ones?
