Yes you can though it is not directly connected to the purchase. If you do it on amazon you generally get less than you would if you sell it on ebay or craigslist. And it never hurts to keep a backup or gift a friend.

I have a Kindle Fire that I would like to trade in on the Kindle Fire HD or HDX. How much are you given for the trade-in and how do you go about it. Do you help with transferring material from the old one to the new one? My email is Hope to hear from you.

This is a discussion board for customers. You should use the help button at the top of this page to contact Amazon. Also you should remove your email since it is dangerous to post in terms of scam and spam.

Just check the link to the trade-in program that was previously given, to find out the price.

If I have a Kindle Fire 1st can I trade it in for a new one and pay the left over money?

I have a kindle Fire and wanted to get a kindle paper white. It's in great condition! Is there anyway I could trade it in or get money for it to use toward the new kindle?

Your best bet would be to sell it on ebay or to someone you know who wants one. While apparently Amazon does have a trade-in program, you won't get nearly as good of a deal as if you sell it elsewhere yourself. Good luck!

where can I get my old Kindle repaired? It's not charging or turning on, not sure which. I'd like to give it to my grandson to read books during the summer when we are away and not able to get to the library.

There are no authorized repair places for kindles. If your problem is the battery, you can try plugging your device into your computer for at least 24 hours. Sometimes that will get a seemingly dead battery working again.

Just FYI: If you've left it sitting unused and uncharged for a long period of time, it may have killed the battery. Kindle batteries don't react well when left unused and uncharged for extended periods.

so if the battery is dead, can it be brought back from the dead? LOL

No, but sometimes there is just enough left in it that plugging it into the computer will get it charging again. Doesn't always work, (after all, if it is completely dead, you're out of luck). But if there is a little charge left (just not enough to power it up), sometimes the computer charging will get it going again. (It has worked for a number of folks on the forums, and did get my daughter's original fire going again at one point.)

fazwoman, check with your local computer and cell phone repair shops. Some Best Buy stores will replace batteries in Kindle devices, but not all of them.
There is also a place called Youbreakwefix. Several people I know have used the place and have been happy. You fill out an online questionnaire and they tell you how much the repairs will be including shipping.

You did not say which Kindle you have, but if you check the prices on new devices, it might make more sense to just purchase a new device.
