Barnes and Noble has just announced a brand new Trade In & Trade Up program. The bookseller wants your old Nooks, iPads or Kindles and will give you credit to put towards the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook 7 and 10 inch variants.
What is most interesting about the trade in program is that Barnes and Noble will give you a flat rate of $50 for any prior version of the Nook. If you have a 1st generation Nook or Nook Color, you get as much money to put towards a Samsung device as you would a Nook HD+.
In order to qualify for the upgrade you need to factory reset your device and remove the SD card. If you have an Apple product, you need to disable “Find my iPhone” and any device passwords.
What do you have to do to get the credit? Simply bring your old device to any Barnes and Noble bookstore from May 17, 2015 through June 13, 2015 to get a $25–$200 credit towards your purchase of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK.
It remains to be seen what Barnes and Noble plans to do with all of the old Nook, Amazon and Apple products. Will they use them in their educational unit or sell them on eBay?
