Hit the TomTom Product Page for the Holiday Specials; using my old Maestro below as a trade in example (I have a closet full of trade ins as you might imagine) I could get a widescreen TomTom XL 335S with text to speech for $68 net after trade (Subject to the T&C's of accepting my unit in good working order as our commenter Jalan points out)
Cruised TomTom.com this weekend and saw that you can now buy a TomTom GPS from them, trade in an old one, and get cash back in a couple of weeks. They have a calculator that calculates what your old GPS is worth, and the prices offered back seem reasonable. I didn't see all models there, but they have a lot of TomTom and other manufacturer models listed for trade. I looked at trading in a TomTom ONE XL "Regional" - worth $77, and a Magellan Maestro 3140 - worth $51; not bad. According to TomTom, the program works like this:
Four Easy Steps To Trade In Equipment:
- Step 1 -- Purchase any new TomTom GPS on TomTom.com.
- Step 2 -- Register for a Trade-In account and log in to the Trade-In Center.
- Step 3 -- Select the appropriate trade-in estimator and receive an instant estimate.
- Step 4 -- Print a prepaid shipping label and ship your items (GPS and all components, plus a printout of your order confirmation email from your purchase on TomTom.com) to our trade-in warehouse.
the issue here that you need to tackle is that the TomTom.com prices on new are list price. So the TomTom 330 is listed at $179, less my generous trade on an old Magellan Maestro and I net out at $128. The Black Friday price is $99 in a couple of outlets. The process seems easy enough, just do your research and get going to take advantage of the program. I like that the old GPS doesn't clog a landfill, it instead will be sent to Dealtree.com where it seems that these will be auctioned off in some attempt at a second life. (BTW - there is an auction going on right now for a Maestro 3140 for $37; guess there's a way to go before they cover the $51 trade-in that they are offering me).
