Here's the link -

You can get more money, in most cases, by selling privately

Sell the kindle yourself. It really isn't that difficult. You could use craigslist.

You're not getting the money from Amazon--it's a third-party trade-in service.

If you think you can get more for it, go for it! Try ebay, craigslist, post a sign in the break-room at work. Get creative. Amazon isn't the best deal for resale and never claimed to be.... although you can list them on the Amazon Marketplace and set whatever price you want.

Keep in mind - that the people buying your used gizmo will want to make a profit when they resell it - so the cheaper they can buy it off of you, the more money they make selling it for the going price of a used unit.. Selling it yourself will put more money in your own pocket.

If they're in mint condition, why not keep using them?

because i was hoping to purchase two of the new kindle whites that have just come out and i dont need four kindles.....lol

You could give them to someone who isn't Kindled, yet.

OR, you could give one away and keep one for, say, recipe books.

OR, you could keep one for recipe books and keep the other to loan out with books you'd like to share.

OR, you could keep one for just samples.

The possibilities are endless; I reject the notion that someone can't use extra Kindles. :0)

Just be sure you're aware that, while the new PaperWhite has the lit screen and other features that the Kindle Touch doesn't have, there are some features that were taken away: no Text-to-Speech or audio book/MP3 playback (because there are no speakers), less storage for books.

When I was a cyclist, there was a saying, "The correct number of bikes to own = n + 1, where n represents the number you currently have."

The same could be said for kindles.

I thought the saying was that guns don't kill people, they kill bank accounts.

Hmmm...I have four Kindles and I need them all!

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 8, 2012 12:47:15 PM PST
I'm up to 3. Or 4, if you count the Fire (which I don't). Or 6, if you count my kids' (which I don't). So really, I only have 3.

4 would be better.

Aliyah - what they may have meant is that you can't return your current Kindle to get a discount on what you are buying. You can use the link provided above as a separate transaction.

Having said that - I always sell through Craigslist. Much better deal. Just use common sense and meet in public places for the sell.

* can't ...return your current Kindle...

Can't.

Folina - good point. One apostrophe and letter changes the whole meaning:) I corrected it.
