Giveaway: $30 Radio Shack Gift Card for Trade & Save Month - A Little Alytude | A Little Alytude

Giveaway: $30 Radio Shack Gift Card for Trade & Save Month

With tax day here, you are probably looking under every one of your home’s nooks and crannies for places you may have hidden a few extra pennies.

Especially if at the same time you are having all sorts of random technology issues…I mean…really? Mercury isn’t even in retrograde anymore. What’s going on??

But imagine my GLEE at discovering the money was right in front of me?

It’s not what you think — lord knows I don’t have a cash cow — but I just learned that now through April 28, America’s Mobile Makeover Month by RadioShack guarantees at least $30 and as much as $300 in store credit when you trade in a working mobile phone through this special promotion.

I have like SIX old phones!

Additional specials will appear in weekly circulars availableonline each Sunday during the promotion, and the hassle-free Trade & Save Program is not limited to phones — it lets you trade in pre-owned technology — everything from mobile phones to cameras to video game consoles. It’s not a buyback program. Trade & Save accepts eligible electronics trade-ins no matter where they were purchased, there’s no cost to you and no receipt is required. Why do I love this idea? It helps me clean my apartment AND save money.

Customers can appraise their device online or come into any RadioShack location. Products traded in are refurbished or recycled, and the customer walks away with immediate store credit. To learn more about Trade & Save or appraise your device, go towww.radioshacktradeandsave.com.

To help get the savings started, I have a $30 gift card to Radio Shack to award to one lucky reader! To enter to win:

Check out one of the Trade & Save intervention videos (there are currently 3: ZaneDaria and Peter) — and have a bit of confession time! What piece of tech shown in the video do you still have? Then also make sure you are following @AlyWalansky and @RadioShack on Twitter. Deadline to enter is April 28. Good luck!

Disclaimer: Radio Shack provided A Little Alytude with gift cards both for purposes of review, and for distribution to a winner.
