It’s good for your Mac. When you trade-in your Mac or iPad and buy a new one, you give your old friend the opportunity of a second life.
It’s good for the environment. Your old electronics contain many salvageable metals and components, so don’t dump them in a landfill. Simply stores are a free-drop off location for electronics recycling.
It’s good for your bottom line. Trading in your gently used gear earns you credit towards your next purchase and even saves you money on Sales Tax.
Use our handy automated online trade-in Calculator to get an instant trade-in quote now, to help you decide if you’d like to trade-in. Our Trade-in Calculator will ask a few basic questions about the age and condition of your Mac, and whether it’s covered by AppleCare. At the end of the process, you get an estimated Trade-In value that you can take to any Simply Computing store. (Please note that this is an estimate- and it the final decision of what trade-in value to grant you rests with the Simply Store Manager where you trade-in, but as long as your machine is in good condition, this estimate is usually correct)
If our proposed trade-in value is acceptable, it’s time to think about preparing your Mac or iPad for trade-in. This usually means:
Find all of the books, boxes, cables and accessories that came with your computer
Back up the files on your computer’s hard drive to an external drive. If you prefer, we can transfer your files directly from your old Mac to your new Mac from $49
