Pricepulse: the price tracker you’ve been waiting for

Issues shoppers find while online shopping

 Among the major disadvantages of online shopping, we can mention the delays in the delivery, personal data privacy and security issues, and difficulty to find significant discounts; but, above all, price fluctuation in online retail businesses is one of the biggest problems for online shoppers’s wallet. 

These so-called dynamic pricing strategies leave customers who buy at the wrong time with hundreds of dollars out of pocket. 

So…When should we buy?

The obvious answer to when we should buy is when the price is at its lowest point ever.

But this brings up another question: how do I know when the price is the best one I can get? It is all about strategy, or even simpler, about using Pricepulse!

Pricepulse is the perfect tool that offers an easy and quick solution at hand. 

An easy and quick solution!

At Pricepulse we are aware that marketplaces like Amazon apply a frequent change of prices. The price you see today might not be the same price you see tomorrow. This site uses very complex algorithms that take into account different parameters, such as peak hour, number of visits and competition.

So while retailers can dynamically change prices thousands of times per day, shoppers are left guessing when it’s the best moment to buy.

With Pricepulse you will be able to outsmart Amazon and save money while shopping with us!

Why Pricepulse?

Pricepulse is the only app that is smart and simple to use. And truly helps users buy at the best time and get the lowest prices. 

While other tools are basic price-trackers, we also make sure you get notified about prices’ fluctuation. 

Pricepulse not only sends you an alert when the product price has dropped, but also lets you know when is the best time to buy that product! This is achieved through price prediction technology and deal alerts.

How does Pricepulse work?

Since it’s easy and fast to use, Pricepulse has turned into one of the best tools for price tracking. 

With the help of Artificial Intelligence, the tool tracks millions of items per day and predicts prices’ behavior to find the best moment to purchase a product.

All the data from the price tracking for each product is displayed in its own Price History graph. Amazon does not have a feature like this and that is why you need us!

With these detailed graphics, you will be able to check how much the price of an item fluctuates within a range of time. 

And when you save a product to your watchlist you’ll get a price drop alert. 

How to install?

There are two extremely easy ways in which you can start making the most of all Pricepulse’s excellent features:

Install the cellphone app

You can download the Pricepulse’s app from the Play Store if you are an Android user or from the App Store if you use iOS. 

Install the Chrome extension for free!

Go to your Google Chrome configurations , then to the extensions tab and search for Pricepulse, click install and it’s ready to go! Now everytime you surf through Amazon you can display the Pricepulse tab from the top right of your window. 

Or… You can go here and click on “Install now.”

With either of these two options, you can begin tracking prices of any Amazon product and begin saving money right away!

How to use?

Using Pricepulse is pretty simple and forward.

If you already have an Amazon wishlist, you can import it with a simple click. No need to create a new one! Pricepulse will begin tracking your favorite products at once.  

When you search for that item you are meaning to purchase, you will have the option to click on the Start Watching button. Once you do so, you can relax and let the tool do all the work! Pricepulse will immediately start tracking that product, and you will get a notification when the price for that product drops and it’s the best time to buy!

What are you waiting for? Be part of the Pricepulse community and start saving big!

Boss’s Day, what’s its origin?

Traditionally, during Boss’s Day the boss or supervisor was used to receiving a card from their employees. However, in recent years these gifts given on Boss’s Day have become a little bigger and more elaborate than just a card.

People give from candies and chocolates, to books and office original items and décor. Some offices usually pool their money together to buy group gifts, giving the possibility to purchase bigger things.

The celebration’s origin

Boss’s Day can be traced back to 1958. It was Patricia Bays Haroski, an employee of State Farm Insurance Co. in Deerfield, Illinois, who decided to register “National Boss’s Day” with the U.S Chamber of Commerce. The chosen day was October 16th, since that day was also her father’s birthday.

Boss’s Day is considered as an opportunity for employees to show appreciation and being thankful for all the things management has done for their employees.

So… Where to look for the best gift? 

No matter whether you’ve decided to go for office decor, a good book, or an item related to your boss’s hobbies, Pricepulse’s Hot Deals is always the best source to get original items at the lowest price!

How to choose the right gift?

  •  Decide on a Budget. Giving a gift doesn’t mean you have to spend a small fortune, though it should be a thoughtful gift. It’s useful to decide beforehand how much you are willing to spend so as to narrow down on your options.
  • Be aware of company policies. Knowing your company’s gifting policies before giving any corporate gift is highly recommended. There’s always the Human Resource Department to verify company policies and to check which are the preferred options.
  • Try Teamwork. Involve the entire office or department in the gift, group gifts are a great alternative since you will be able to purchase a higher quality gift. Besides, it is an excellent way to show appreciation as a collaborative work group.
  • Be aware of personal interests. When choosing the adequate gift, it’s important to have in mind your boss’s hobbies, lifestyle and tastes. Your chances of being successful with your choice are going to double!

Useful gift ideas!

Once you’ve taken all these tips into consideration and are all set to go Boss’s Day gift hunting, don’t forget Pricepulse’s amazing search features. Choose the best gift for your boss, add it to your watchlist and let the price tracker do its job! You will get a notification when the price for that item has dropped! 

Some good gift options are:

Desk organizer

The Don’ts of giving gifts at work

Don’t spend more money that you can actually afford

Let’s face it; not many of us can really afford planning a gift without watching on your budget. So don’t feel compelled to buy something that isn’t within your means, just for the sake of pleasing your boss or impressing other coworkers. Otherwise, this mistake will certainly take its toll on your bank account!

Don’t be negligent of other people’s beliefs

Always bear in mind that others may not celebrate certain holidays. So when choosing a gift for your boss, avoid choosing items that may be linked to certain specific beliefs or holiday celebrations. It may add an uncomfortable and awkward feeling to the gift giving.

Don’t exchange gifts in front of other coworkers 

If you decided on a group gift, then you have to remember not to give the gift in front of other coworkers who may not have participated. A good option to consider may be coming into work early and leaving gifts on people’s desks, or, if they are small enough, putting them in their office mailboxes. There’s also always the option of organizing a holiday lunch or an after work gathering so as to exchange gifts in a comfortable setting, when the people present are those who have participated in the gift.

Are you ready for Halloween?

Why do we celebrate Halloween?

Ever wondered why a bunch of kids go trick-or-treating around the neighborhood on October 31st, all dressed up in scary costumes, demanding and eating candies? As far as most of us know, if you don’t give the children candies, they will give the person answering the door trick instead.

This is where ´trick or treat´ comes from. They usually parade around in original costumes, which are not always scary. Costumes nowadays can be anything, the more creative the better!

Historically, the holiday was religious in nature and extremely significant to the culture of the people who celebrated it. The word ´Halloween´ comes from ´All Hallows´ Eve´ and means ´hallowed evening´. On that day, people would wear masks because they thought it would trick spirits roaming the earth that evening.

Get ready for some deal hunting

Halloween has become the second-largest commercial holiday in the US, beaten only by Christmas. Halloween sales usually jump to approximately $7 billion yearly. Approximately seventy percent of Americans celebrate on this date and they spend an average of $86 each on candy, decor and, of course, costumes. As we get closer to the date, don’t forget that in Pricepulse´s Hot Deals you can find some of the best Halloween deals! 

Besides the funny and/or spooky costumes and trick-or-treating customs, Halloween is a big consumer spending event. This year, given concerns of social distancing due to the current pandemic, retailers are bracing themselves for what could be a more subdued celebration this year. 

Anyway, the general feeling is that the spirit of this popular festivity will be kept; it may be different from last year and the previous years, but different doesn’t mean it has to be bad!

Favorite costumes

When the time comes to choose your costume, it’s always useful to be aware of the latest trends. And what’s even more useful is to use Pricepulse´s Search products to find the absolute best deals in Halloween costumes.

According to Google trends, here are the top 10 Halloween costumes:

  1. Fortnite
  2. Spider-Man
  3. Harley Quinn
  4. Wonder Woman
  5. Black Panther
  6. Deadpool
  7. Harry Potter
  8. Catwoman
  9. Pennywise
  10. Kim Kardashian

How to choose your costume?

First of all, you need to answer yourself some simple questions, like “Do you enjoy dressing up? What costumes have you worn in past celebrations? Which one was the most comfortable? Your favorite? What do you want to dress as this year?

 Read on for some tips about how to choose a Halloween costume:

 For starters, decide on your budget

There is a wide range of prices when it comes to costumes, depending on what you choose. If you want to make sure you are getting the lowest price for that Halloween item, don’t hesitate to search for products in Pricepulse.

Before you go shopping, it’s also helpful to decide beforehand how much money you wish to spend on this and stick to this budget when choosing your option. It’s the best way to avoid regrets on September 1st!

Stick to your style

Even though the idea in Halloween is to play another character and be someone different than yourself, you may feel much more comfortable if you pick a costume that is in line with your own style. It’s great to have fun playing to be a funny or spooky creature, but you will feel more relaxed and in store for the fun if you stay true to yourself.

Comfort is always the best option!

Spending the evening in a costume that is too tight or hot, itchy, etc. is not anyone´s idea of fun, sounds more like torture! So, when choosing your 2020 costume, put comfort among the top priorities, you will be really thankful for this when you run into someone wearing a bear-costume!

Think of your own interests

If there are no theme guidelines, you can always be creative thinking about the things that you enjoy most, which are your interests, they can be a source of inspiration at the time of choosing a costume.

Opt for DIY or store-costume?

Of course, a DIY costume is totally unique, but it takes time and effort to put it together and have a decent result.

So, if you are not sure where to start or you’re short on time, then maybe you should think about solving this dilemma with a store-costume that will surely include all you need to complete your scary look.

If you have set your eyes on a costume published on Amazon, add it to your Pricepulse watchlist and just wait for the price to drop! The app will let you know when your costume is ready to buy at the lowest price possible. 

Hot or cold weather?

Checking the forecast a few days before may be a good idea, considering how a certain costume might be able to work in different possible weather conditions; it’s better to avoid spending Halloween wandering around in a furry costume on a hot and sticky summer night!

Complementary costumes to add more fun!

Matching or complementary costumes sounds like a great and fun idea! And it’s a good way of getting creative and sharing a good laugh with family or friends. Check with them if they are willing to do themed costumes together.

How to get the best prices on Amazon?

Pricepulse has all the necessary tools to make sure you will not be spending extra money! 

It´s a fact that online shopping has increased expectations as regards nailing the lowest price for the products you want. Since there are many sites and apps that help compare prices, get discounts and coupons, and hunt for the best clearance deals, consumers don’t stick to the first price they get, they are used to digging further to get the lowest prices.

What is Labor’s Day?

Labor Day 2020 will take place on Monday, September 7. It pays tribute to the contributions and achievements of American workers. Traditionally, it is celebrated on the first Monday in September.

Labor Day weekend also symbolizes the end of summer for many Americans, and it is celebrated with parties, parades and athletic events. It has also grown into one of the year’s biggest shopping events! There are tons of amazing deals as summer comes to a close.

In September you can typically save the most on mattresses, outdoor and patio furniture, appliances, camping gear, and clothing. People usually claim that Labor Day doesn’t even compare to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, which is true to some extent, but given the great deals and bargains offered in Labor Day, we could somewhat disagree.

What can consumers expect?

Considering the time of year, the biggest markdowns are on summer goods, which are naturally on their way out to make room for new fall stock. It is actually a fantastic time to buy that bikini that you liked at your favorite store, even though summer is slowly wrapping up. The same goes for summer appliances, like grills. It is the right moment to go for it!

Labor Day can be catalogued as a summer clearance event. To grab the best deals, you should shop for warm weather categories, such as patio furniture, gardening tools, summer clothing, grills and outdoor toys. If you wish to boost the shopping experience, remember that Pricepulse and its price drop alerts is the easiest way to snatch the hottest deals!   

Where can I shop?

Every year, the main big stores dedicate Labor Day entire pages offering a variety of sale items. From Home Depot, to Target and Macy’s, and of course, there’s always Amazon.

Don´t forget that using Pricepulse is a means of guaranteeing you are getting the absolute best price for any item, no matter in which kind of sale day you are!

Best items to buy

Summer clothes: we know it’s almost sweater weather, but if you can stand waiting a little, you can snag major savings on summer garments like shorts, bathing suits and tank tops. Clearance summer clothes can have deep discounts, like 70 or 80% off, and many stores will top it off with a 20% off coupon. This can result in awesome deals, like clothing items, such as a t-shirt, for $2.

Mattresses: you can expect modest but reliable savings of 10% to 20%, both in store and online.

Outdoor gear and appliances: in fact, summer doesn’t really end until September 23, so there are many warm days left to enjoy outdoor life. So why not consider these Labor Day’s deals as the perfect time to pick up a sleeping bag, cooler or tent?  As a customer, you can expect to find anywhere from 30% to 70% off items such as patio furniture, grills and garden tools.

Travel: you can find surprising discounts in this area during Labor Day sales, so don’t underestimate the discount potential of booking your next holiday during the Labor Day offers!

Cars: during the fall car dealers release the new 2020 models, so they need to make room for these models. So be sure that you can score a great deal on the outgoing inventory (as long as having the latest models is not a must for you). There are also many deals on cars during the holiday season, but the variety you will find will be wider if you shop at this time.

What you shouldn’t buy

Electronics: though you may think that it is the right time to snag a new cell phone or laptop, it’s best to give it a second thought to analyze the options. This is especially the case for Apple iPhones, since their new models are released in the fall.

You would be paying way too much for a model that’s about to be previous-generation. However, many stores like Best Buy, Target and other retailers will probably have solid markdowns on appliances, some accessories and TVs. But you can bet these kinds of items will be even cheaper on Black Friday.

So, if you purchase them during Labor Day deals, you are going to save some money for sure, but be aware that on items like the ones mentioned, you might save even more money if you wait until another major discount day, like Black Friday.

Fall-related items: it’s not that the idea of buying some warm and fuzzy slippers or a comfortable flannel PJ is not a tempting idea, but it’s better to hold on until after October, when all fall items will go on sale, and by sale we mean really big season discounts!

So, don’t buy any of it — no warm boots, cozy sweater, comforting autumn clothes, no Halloween decor, don’t buy any of it. After October is the right time if you wish to save money.

Pricepulse will be there for you

But in the end it doesn’t matter what you choose to buy or not to buy because Pricepulse will be there to ensure you get the lowest price at any time. Search for that product you want to purchase and click on Start Watching, you will receive a notification when that item is ready to buy!

Score the best prices with Amazon discount codes

At this point, we all know that you can find virtually anything you are looking for in Amazon, from books to home and garden, computers, apparel and more. This retail online site has quickly established as one of the most successful companies in the world.

But prices on Amazon vary millions of times. To maximize the online shopping experience, Pricepulse  can make you save tons of money by guaranteeing you are getting the absolute best price for that product you want.

While people think the most effective way to save on Amazon is to purchase a Prime Membership, there are plenty of other ways for non-Prime members to save.

There are many tricks that can make you snatch great savings; adding Amazon discount codes is one of them! Have you ever spent endless hours searching online for great deals and discount codes? Here are some tips to bear in mind when that moment comes.

There are some websites such as Tech Bargains, RetailMeNot, Deal Coupon and Current Codes where you can find discounts of up to 30% off with Amazon promotional codes and coupons. If in addition you have Pricepulse installed on chrome to get notifications alert to know when is the best time to buy, then you are all set for some Amazon great discount offers!

Where can I find Amazon coupons to add to my cart?

On Amazon’s Coupon Page, you’ll find clickable coupons for many different products.  Here, the coupons are arranged by category.  If you wish to redeem these Amazon checkout coupons, you have to click on the coupon and then add the item to your cart.

At checkout, you will automatically have the discount applied.  It’s as easy as that! The coupons usually change, so make sure to mark the page and check back often.

Finding Amazon Promo Codes by department

This can be a little bit trickier. Apparently, there is no page yet that lists all the current Amazon codes valid for the Amazon site. Finding these hidden promo codes within Amazon will be quite a challenge, but it’s possible to nail them after a little digging.

First of all, you have to search by department on the Amazon site and choose a category. In that category, there are usually links at the top of the page.  

You have to look for “special offers” where you might find products with discounts. To apply them, you will need to enter various Amazon discount codes.

If you can’t find a code that works, this trick may be useful. First, choose your items, then fill your virtual shopping cart and, at checkout, just abandon your cart (be sure to bookmark your cart’s URL in case you need it later on).

When you leave a purchase operation incomplete, many companies will follow you across the Internet with ads giving you a discount of what you had in the cart.

Once you get the code, just click on the saved URL and apply to redeem! In some cases, you may even get an email urging you to complete the checkout process with the discount code.

Save while shopping on Amazon

When available, coupon codes can be found on select product pages and added to your order with a single click.

Check the Today’s Deals page for discounts in a variety of products, no code necessary. It is a link at the top of most Amazon.com pages that features multiple deal types.

Amazon refreshes its best-selling items every hour, otherwise known as its “Movers & Shakers.” They feature the deals from the products that they consider a good opportunity. They just highlight the deals that are getting the most attention on Amazon.

Amazon’s Today’s Deals include the following:

Deals of the Day: A single item or small set of closely related items discounted for one day only.

Savings and Sales: A selection of discounted items and ongoing promotions from across Amazon.com.

Lightning Deals: A single item paired with a limited quantity of extra savings coupons, available for the time period stated or until all coupons are used.

You can buy on the same day items featured in different Today’s Deals sections. For instance, you could purchase a Lightning Deal and a Deal of the Day.

Get $10 for your first sign-in

When you sign in to the Amazon app for the first time, you get a $10 promotional code. How can you check this? You will get a notification in the app with the amount received and the instructions on redeeming it. It is valid to apply it to your next order. Just remember to use it within 30-days of your first sign-in. 

Browse Amazon Family subscriptions

If you are a Prime member you can save 20% off baby food, diapers, and more. Besides, it provides family-oriented offers and aged-based recommendations. You can also browse Amazon Family coupons and redeem. 

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Prime members have an annual deal event that is exclusively for them, the Amazon Prime Day. It offers two full days of special savings on tons of items. This event started on July 15th, 2015 as a celebration of Amazon’s 20th anniversary.

Prime members get exclusive access to side deals on everything, from cell phones and kindles to the industry’s best laptops. With Pricepulse, you can even optimize these discount days by receiving alerts that let you find the best offers and know when it’s the best time to make the purchase!

When will Prime Day 2020 take place?

Due to this year’s pandemic, Prime Day 2020 won’t arrive in the U.S. until October. But the exact date and time of Prime Day remains a mystery. It is said that it will run from October 5th through October 9th — the month before Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

Amazon though hasn’t officially announced any dates for the United States, it has only confirmed it has been delayed.

Why did Amazon Prime Day get delayed?

With the current economic downturn, consumer behavior is changing and probably they wouldn’t have been in the mood for a shopping spree in July (when the usual Amazon Prime Day date happens). So, it makes sense to delay the start of Prime Day deals.

But if things start to go back to normal, for instance, if kids start going back to school safely, there will be a rapid increase in the demand to buy again soon after that.

At the same time, many manufacturers, though not ready now, will soon need to start making money again, so they’ll need a boost like Prime Day 2020. Many goods are stored in warehouses while essential goods are prioritized. Few want to wait until Black Friday 2020 for a commercial recovery.

What Prime deals can we expect?

It’s hard to predict exactly what will be on offer, since so many retailers are participating now in Prime Day. But if we base ourselves on past year’s Amazon Prime Day deals, we can quite surely assert that if you’re on the search for something electronic, it will be discounted on Prime Day 2020.

Amazon Prime Day? Or Black Friday?

It’s certain that prices will be at their all-time lowest during Amazon Prime Day, but so they will be during Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2020. So, when is it the best time to buy?

While logic tells us that Amazon Prime Day comes sooner by about three to four months, we can resort to one of the most useful shopping aids for consumers: with Pricepulse you get price drop notifications, you can track items you want and import Amazon wish lists, among other benefits.

Since both online shopping events are such a big win for consumers, Amazon (and to a lesser extent other retail chains) has somewhat got us used to buying big-ticket items two times a year: Prime Day and Black Friday/Cyber Monday.

How to shop on Prime Day in 2020

1. Become an Amazon Prime member

Shopping on Prime Day is a members-only benefit, so signing up for a free trial is definitely the first step to scoring the best deals. 

But if you’re not already a member, be sure to time your free trial for the month of Amazon Prime Day event, so you can take full advantage of the deals.

2. Mark your calendar

With the current pandemic still creating quite a lot of uncertainty, Amazon has not yet officially announced Prime Day dates for 2020. Anyway, rumor has it that it will take place around the fourth quarter in the US, that’s approximately October. If October doesn’t work out, Amazon could push it back and roll it into holiday sales altogether.  

3. Create a wish list

If you create a wish list ahead of time, it will make things much easier! You will focus on the items you want, and it will let you sort out what you need and how much everything costs. This is an excellent head start. It’s the best way to analyze which deals dropped in price and which did not. 

4. Do some research on Lightning Deals

During Prime Day, some deals will only be available for a limited amount of time and only while supplies last. These Lightning Deals, which are usually open to everyone shopping on Amazon, on Prime Day they’ll be exclusive to Prime members. 

As you can expect from its name, Lightning Deals go quick, which is why you’ll want to watch the deals you want (Pricepulse app is the easiest way to do this). Be patient, it is still possible to get a deal that has been 100% claimed by adding yourself to the deal’s waitlist, there’s always another shopper that bails on their purchase. 

Smart shopping for best prices on Amazon

How many of us have gone to stores to get a look at certain products, such as cell phones, laptops, secretly knowing that we would buy them later on Amazon, at a better price? We all know that Amazon is a great money-saving online shopping site, but with these hacks, you can even snatch better deals!

There are many features that can help you get the absolute best out of your shopping experience, whether that´s faster shipping, more purchasing options, and best of all, better prices.

So, next time you are browsing the internet looking for that phone, that kitchen piece of furniture or that pet house for your dog, remember this list! Read on for some of the best ways to get the lowest prices on Amazon. Once you master these hacks, you will think twice before paying full retail price again.

Subscribe to save

When we think of subscriptions, we think about something fun and entertaining, like magazines, streaming video services, etc. But there are products that frequently run out at home, either dog food, detergent or toilet paper. 

By subscribing to Amazon’s Subscribe & Save, you get a refill of those products on a regular basis; they are sent to your home at a great price. You get a 5% discount for the items you subscribe for, and up to 15% on automatic deliveries of everyday essentials. 

A hidden trick? Subscribe to something you need and once you have it, cancel the subscription.

Today’s Deals; give them a shot

You can find a section on Amazon’s main page called Today’s Deals. Just as the name says, these deals are available for 24 hours, then they are gone! The clock ticking on the item will let you know how much time you have left to make the purchase.

Is it an advantage to use an Amazon Store Card?

This store card is for shopping only at Amazon, but good news is that it offers special rates. Prime members get 5% back when they buy eligible Prime-only items. Amazon will also give a $60 gift card when you sign up, provided that you qualify for one.

Can I shop at another country’s Amazon Site?

This option is worth trying if you live in a country which currently has a strong currency; then you can try shopping at another country’s Amazon site. Remember to check your country’s import tax and duties before you make the purchase. You may lose what you have saved!

Buy used

When you decide to buy an item, you probably think of it as brand-new. However, it is worth considering buying a used item from Amazon’s Warehouse. For instance, you can find phones that have only been turned on twice before being published for sale.

It’s important to check the reseller’s reputation and read comments from users who have purchased items from that same person to see if they are reliable sellers.

Yes, Amazon has an outlet!

And it is the best place to get the cheapest deals possible. In this outlet page, you will find a great variety of very good products that you can buy at an even lower price.  Additional benefits are in store if you are an Amazon Prime member: early access to deals, this means they will be available to you before everyone else.

Get Prime free (but just for a while)

Not everybody is aware that Amazon Prime comes with a free 30-day trial. You can use it for example during the holidays, when you do the most shopping, to get free shipping, and then cancel it before you’re charged. As simple as that. Just remember to cancel that membership on time!

Go coupon-hunting

Amazon offers a set of coupons at its Coupons page. Just clip all you might want to use, you can search under categories such as Electronics, Clothes, Personal Care, Pet Supplies, etc. Savings of around 10 to 15 percent will be applied automatically when you make the purchase. If you don’t check out, the coupon is not used, and eventually expires.

Get shipping refunds on late items

When you order using Amazon Prime, you expect without a doubt that two-day shipping is guaranteed, as long as you can see the green “Guaranteed delivery” date on the item at checkout. If it doesn’t arrive on the right date by 8pm, sometimes you can get a refund on shipping. Even a one-month extension on your Amazon Prime account.

This is applicable for Amazon Family and cannot happen more than 12 times a year (or once during your Prime free trial).

Ever thought about trading tech for money?

It’s not as if there are no places to trade in old tech, such as tablets and phones. But it’s good to know that Amazon has a trade-in program too, and that it can be used to get money to spend on more goods on Amazon, by means of a gift card, not cash.

Within trade-in item categories, you can find tablets, Bluetooth speakers, cell phones, books, video games, kindles, plus other great stuff.
