Got the Old Camcorder Blues? Wanna Trade up?
If looking through Videomakers monthly Buyers Guides has you wanting to upgrade your equipment every time you get a new issue in the mail, heres your chance to save a few bucks with a trade-in for camcorders, at least.
Sony has a limited offer going on beginning April 4th, allowing you to trade in your old camcorder for a new one, with the help of Dealtree. If youve never heard of them, Dealtree does all sorts of trade-in programs from old obsolete equipment to e-waste, and is working on this program with Sony for a limited time.
Theres an on-line calculator, telling you the value of your camcorder and what, if any, amount you can get for your trade-in, and then Dealtree sends you an e-coupon good for that amount on a camcorder from Sonys site.wwwsonystyle.com/tradeup You then print a pre-paid shipping label and send your camcorder to Dealtree, who gets the rest of the transaction started.
There are a couple catches, however, so check out the details before visions of camcorder upgrades dance in your head. This offer is only good from April 4th through May 15th, all e-coupons expire by June 30, and it doesn’t have to be a Sony camcorder, but inot all camcorders have value to them for trade-in. (Sorry, Charlie, that old S-VHS camcorder just cant pass muster!)
Just like used-car trade-ins, camcorders are graded as Excellent, Good or Poor, so check out your dream cam, read the rules and caveats, and get ready to go shopping!
