Deal Details

Last Edited by alanbrenton October 31, 2012 at 05:27 AM
Just found out that Sony USA is offering double the value for its Trade-in and Recycling Program. Helpful especially for those of us thinking of trading in an old laptop (several brands are available for trading in but I didn't find Asus among them) for a new and shiny Vaio.

http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/...Id=tradeup

Is it possible to score a 1st gen i5 for less than $200 to use as a trade in? Hehe. Smilie

I plug these into the drop down lists:

Intel i5
2.26 GHz
Gateway/Acer
Is Hard Drive present? Y
Is the pc fully functional? Y
Is the computer in good physical condition? Y
Is Operating Software Restore Disc Included? N (usually on the hard drive)
Do you have the power cord? Y

And I get an end value of $336, not too shabby at all, especially if 1st gen i5's can be had for $200 or so.

Updating it to an i7, 2.66 GHz (just guessing if there is such a speed), with all else being equal, I get a $468 trade in value. Smilie

-----
I found out after posting that the Core 2 Duo trade ins are the best bang for the buck, especially when they are selling for $100-150 on Kijiji or CL and can fetch almost $300 in trade in value. Smilie

While you're at it Smilie

Quote from bunny88 View Post :
Sony B&M Store is giving away 2 free movie tickets to Skyfall when you take a 5 min demo of their new 84" 4k TV in store.
They give out vouchers for Hollywood movie money which you redeem online for Skyfall tickets.
Got mine over the weekend.

Didn't see it posted anywhere in the store. I came to know about it during a commercial that comes before they screen a movie at Edwards theaters.

Offer valid while supplies last.
Limited 2 tickets per group.

The best link I could find about information regarding this offer is here [sony.com]

Catch a Breathtaking Double Feature
Date: October 15 thru November 12

Visit the Sony store to catch this year's must-sees. Ask a sales associate to give you a demo of the brand new 84" 4K TV, Sony's largest and highest resolution TV ever. Once you've seen our groundbreaking television, you will receive two James Bond Hollywood Movie Money® codes with instructions to print your Skyfall tickets at home.


I'm guessing the offer is valid only at those stores that carry the 84" 4K TV

Here are the locations that carry it.

Exclusively at select Sony Stores:
Los Angeles, CA 90067
Costa Mesa, CA 92626
San Diego, CA 92108
Palo Alto, CA 94304
Las Vegas, NV 89109
Houston, TX 77056
New York, NY 10022
Garden City, NY 11530


Enjoy the show. nod

Well the manager let it slide. But insisted that they can't take any more from me. They are writing corporate as I type to inform them of their one per person limit store policy so they are on the same page.

On the bright side... I got $208 more for a 2008 dual core that was $350 new lol
Just click "contact us" on the tradein page. You can send email or call the listed number.

I did another today as well. It was still a damn fine laptop. P8400, metal construction, perfect working. But I would never use it again so why keep it? Got $272.

None of the batteries would hold any charge at all, and hinges loose on the G50

Yup. I traded that in for around $360.

Also I trade in another SONY laptop. So now I have $606 Gift Card to spend.

Good things is I can buy anything instead of only towards to new laptop.

But everything in Sony Store is over price... so I will wait for Black Friday to see if I can spend that $606.

Let me know if anyone want to trade my gift card.

You traded in store? Did they check the processor in the BIOS? since the sticker says i3?

Same here, battery doesn't hold a charge. I pulled the sticker off that says i3, took a picture of the bios showing it's an i5 processor (just in case they try to short me) and sent it in to Sony along with a couple of Core 2 Duo laptops. There aren't any stores near me so I'm crossing my fingers that they honor the quoted price. And hopefully they'll have some good deals around BF.
