Found 19th Aug 2012
Was trying to find where to recycle old electrical equipment and came across this

Post them off or take your goods to a Tesco

1. Find your electrical product – Search for your electrical product using the make and/or model name. Use the pictures in the search results to be sure that you're trading in the right device. Next, answer a few questions to get the real-time trade-in value for your device. Then, provide some contact information and you're ready to post it!

2. Post it for free – TESCO Electrical Trade-in offers a free post label. Find a suitable box or padded envelope and stick on the pre-paid label provided with your trade receipt. Be green and reuse a box or envelope that you already have lying around the house.

3. Get paid – Step 3 is the easiest. Depending on your payment option, expect to receive your payment about 3 weeks after your electrical product(s) arrive at TESCO Electrical Trade-in warehouse.

As long as the following criteria is met:

The trade in value indicated is representative of an 'as new' 'second-hand' device, which is fully functioning and must be complete with all required cables, chargers and essential parts to work properly. The value presented is the maximum value offered, which can be adjusted downward based on our in-store assessment of the device's general condition.


You may get less!
They are offering 400.00 for my mint macbook pro, thats more than some people have offered me on ebay as buy it now.

Even if you don't get anything for your items at least they will be recycled.

programme on a few weeks ago about crt tv's and monitors about were they go to be "recycled", doubt tesco are spending the time or money to honestly recycle them
Offering £23 more than cex for a grade A black ipad 3 16gb wifi.

This would be brilliant of the offered more in clubcard points, they are offering £290 cash for a grade A ipad 3 16gb wifi. Say they offered £315 in club card vouchers, You cold sell those vouchers on ebay for around twice as much and get £600 for your £400 iPad :P

Shame they dont do it though, there is something about getting up to £50 in green club card vouchers, but there isn't much info on that

British Heart Foundation electrical shops. They take furniture as well, they will pick up for FREE. No idea how far from the nearest store they do this. Website down at the moment.

The first £50 of each item traded in can be paid in club card points. They are green club card points, not vouchers, they just show in a seperate section of your club card statement but can be used just like regular points. I traded in an iPad 2 and got my first £50 as points which is worth between £100 - £200 in reward deals. I also got a quote, which locked in the trade in value for 14 days, just after the new iPad was announced so got a good deal.

The only downside is that the freepost label they provide is a waste of time for high value items. They recommend recorded delivery but you get no extra insurance with that and no real tracking. I had to send my iPad Special Delivery to get it properly insured.

Unfortunately they also look for 'as new' items these days, was told this by their driver who turned down two sets.of sofas saying he would get into trouble if he accepted them. I got £75 each for both sets on ebay.as i just wanted to get rid of them
charity shops wont take electrical items saying they are not covered by the insurance if something goes wrong. I have a 42in rear projection tv just sitting in my living room, its too big to move

Try Freecycle if you just want it got rid of, matey, I'm sure someone will happily come along with a mate and a big car and take it away for you

I've both picked up some nice second hand bits and got rid of some reasonable stuff that I just cba to try selling on Freecycle, it's a great little system, and seems to mainly encourage decent people too
I just got £53 for my really old Sony blu ray player and £40 for a hd DVD player!! Cex wouldn't take either!

what a joke, offered 5 points on a laptop i sold last week for £199
£5 for a sony slr, seriously lol. where u guys finding a decent price?
cold from me as the price they are offering is ridiculous. you can still get £5 for a crt at a boot fair.

the price they are offering for flat screens is ludicrous as well.

hair splitting give to someone on freecycle then...charity doesn't mean a shop necessarily
iPad 2 not bad at £190, especially as £50 of that can be clubcard points
Wow, £40 for my tosh ep30 (hddvd), that's more than I paid for it!

:edit:

To get that price they're not expecting original retail packaging are they?
Just accompanying remote, power cable and presumably an hdmi cable too?

offering me 5pts for my dell netbook...joke (_;)
Finally got around to taking my ep30 in to a store, and..... Tesco lived upto expectations.

Member of staff didn't know how to handle trade ins, nor did his two colleges, nor did his line manager, and the line manager couldn't get in touch with the department manager.

I ended up having to take my ep30 home with me; laughably incompetent.

Tried again today.... and again met with complete incompetence.

Some sob story about it being a new service, some staff having recently left, and the newbies not having had the necessary training yet.

When I suggested that I'd be happy to wait while he reads the necessary instruction manuals...... he said "we don't have instruction manuals".
Is the 3rd largest retailer in the WORLD really organized by nothing more than word of mouth percolating down from on high?!

F**k me.

Finally managed to catch a member of staff that knew what they were doing.

£40 of clubcard points in the bank. Bargain.
it seems like they have closed down now

pity
