Yes there is a trade in program, it is offered by a 3rd party on Amazon. Currently you can get $83.50 if it is in good shape:

Can I trade in a Kindle Keyboard and get a reduced price on the Kindle Fire HD? Your page says the Kindle Fire can hold other types of documents such as PDF, DOCX, etc. Are they only stored, as on a USB drive, or can they be viewed/edited?

Yes you can trade in any Kindle, you get a Amazon gift card then you can apply to any purchase once the trade in is processed.

They can viewed not sure about edited though.

Joanne - See the Kindle Trade In Program in the link provided above your post.

If a document type is listed, then it is readable with the Kindle Ap. You will need other aps to edit.

Joanne, as far as e-book reader component of Fire is concerned, the same types of content is supported as on your Keyboard, with the addition of new K8 format suitable for picturebooks, comics, books enhanced with multimedia etc. To see them in that reader, Office files still have to be converted. However, there are application capable of displaying Office documents directly, and even editing them to some extent. Search for Office in Kindle app store.

Samuel, I am sure there is a way to sell your old device locally. You can also give it away as a donation or a very nice present.

My kindle fire has a cracked screen but is less than a year old. . . Could i still trade for a reduced price? There is nothing wrong with anything else.

In reply to an earlier post on Oct 25, 2012 8:03:41 PM PDT
Bixillarla says:
Does it still work? If so then yes but with a crack in it you will not get the maximun price, they will deduct some for it.

The screen works perfectly fine. Its just cracked decently ruining the display. Would replacing the screen ruin the value?

Would I be able to trade in an older regular Kindle and get something towards a new Kindle Fire/HD... And if so, how would I transfer the books on my old Kindle to the new one?

Thank you.

The content you've purchase stays with your account, not with the device. When you get the new device, and you register it to your existing Amazon account, you will be able to access all the electronic media content you've purchased from Amazon in the past.

With the trade in question, that was answered several times earlier in this thread. Did you not see that?

If u trade a new kindle fire for the gift card does it give the the full amount back at which u paid for it , bc then I would like to purchase a kindle fire hd?

King Al says:
No, you will not get the full value back. Assuming you have the original 1st generation Fire, the trade-in program will give you a maximum of $60.25.

Which of the kindles support the program for children?

Do you mean Kindle FreeTime? The 2nd Generation Kindle Fire and the Kindle Fire HD models support FreeTime. If you're talking about something else you need to be more specific.

Would the protection plan transfer if I upgrade. Kindle is less than a year but due to vision impairment we need the HD. The fire was purchased for Christmas

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 2, 2013 6:56:22 PM PDT
There is no upgrade type trade in however the new Kindle will have the same one year warranty as your original one did. If you purchased an extended warranty it was through a 3rd party, not Amazon. You would need to contact them about transferring it to the new Kindle.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 3, 2013 10:03:47 PM PDT
Herman, be sure to research the trade in service thoroughly. There have been many complaints from people that the company says their Kindle is in only fair condition and giving you peanuts for it. Or somehow the original boxes disappear.

I think you'd be much better off and get more money selling it yourself on eBay or Craigslist.

Well, i kept my first gen fire and bought the 8.9 hd and can ocassionally be found working both at once (no wireless issues). Excessive but they each have device specific talents and one becomes so attached....

Posted on Jul 18, 2013 8:52:06 AM PDT
I will be buying a Kindle Fire hd tablet. Can I get the books on my old kindle transferred to the kindle fire tablet?
