Newegg now offers to buy your old graphics cards in exchange for trade-in credit to purchase a brand new one.
The latest Newegg Trade-In Program is available today and helps users receive a decent amount for used hardware while also helping Newegg with a constant flow of used GPUs to refurbish and sell.
The trade-in value of the graphics card depends on the model. It can range from $561 for a used GeForce RTX 3090 Ti from Nvidia all the way down to a $30 trade-in value for a used Radeon RX 5500 XT from AMD.
Newegg will now have a ‘Check Your Trade-In Value’ option on its product page in the graphics card section. However, there is a limit to how old the graphics card should be before it is eligible for the Newegg trade-in program.
The Newegg trade-in program will not accept Nvidia graphics cards below the RTX 2000 series. On the other hand, the AMD selection starts from the Radeon RX 5000 series.
The credit from the trade-in program will not be transferred directly to the owner. After agreeing on a trade-in value, Newegg will send a prepaid label to the owner. Graphics card owners will then be given a maximum of two weeks to return their trade-in graphics card.
Once received, the trade-in graphics card will then be inspected and credited as a refund to the owner’s account. In some cases, Newegg will also offer a gift card as a form of payment, though it entirely depends on Newegg.
The one downside to selling to a business would be the value. GPU owners will get less value than a direct sale on a used marketplace, though this option will be the more convenient option.
For instance, Newegg offers $561 for a used GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. However, the card is currently selling for $800-900 on sites like eBay.
