Amazon’s expanded trade-in program for the existing Kindle lineup can significantly reduce the cost of the Kindle Fire for those looking to upgrade when it launches Nov. 15. At its best, it can make the cost of a brand new Kindle Fire plummet to just $64.
Even the very first Kindle ever can be traded in, albeit for just $12. But hey, that’s the technology world for you… and let’s face it, the original Kindle probably belongs in a museum by now anyways. On the other hand, if you are sitting on the latest Kindle DX, you can trade it in for $135, which makes getting that new Kindle Fire a no-brainer. Most other Kindle models will net you somewhere between $30 and $50.
