There are no cash equivalents or exchanges for any reward offered under ecoNEWonline.com unless otherwise specified in writing by ecoNEW.

The trade-in section of this program is intended to offer trade-in value for working products or products that may contain the defects outlined in the deductions section of the trade-in program. Only eligible products qualify for trade-in or recycle. A list of eligible products is available on the trade-in platform main page. The trade-in product model number, its configuration and condition must match what was provided by you to ecoNEW during the trade-in estimation. If they do not match, ecoNEW reserves the right to recalculate the trade-in value. The value of your reward card will reflect the recalculated trade-in value if the product shipped does not match the information provided by you online during the trade-in estimation process. We may, at our discretion, offer some trade-in value for products that display functional conditions that we did not prompt for such as no boot or no power. However, we reserve the right to reject any trade-in for conditions that effect the operation of your product.
If your Qualified Product(s) were received and ecoNEW determined that the product condition was misrepresented by you, and there is no trade value, ecoNEW will recycle your product for free. Back to top of Page
