But. Amazon has that buyback program. I'd be thrilled, thrilled if I could send along my older devices to Kobo in exchange for a nominal credit and a discount on a new device. Between the savings and not having perfectly good devices sitting around moribund, I'd be sold. Why doesn't Kobo institute a similar program?

Yeah, I know I could try to sell my old devices and offset the price of something new, but it's more effort than I'm prepared to make. Amazon makes it so easy.

Kobo only deals in books and ereaders. That is their bread and butter. Amazon is much bigger and can afford a buyback program. I'm with everyone else. Just sell them on eBay or even better control your "gadget lust". Lol.
