Three has launched a new laptop trade-in service, enabling subscribers to purchase a new computer for a reduced price.
Consumers can trade in their old laptops for up to £150 when subscribing to any qualifying package.
Laptops from 22 different manufacturers - Acer, Advent, Apple, Asus, Benq, Compaq, Dell, Ei Systems, eMachines, Fujitsu, HP, Lenovo, Medion, MSI, Packard Bell, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, Toshiba, Unisys, Viewsonic and Zoostorm – are included as part of the promotion.
After signing up for a new Three broadband deal, consumers simply need to complete a claim form and send in their old laptop or netbook to Three.
In order to qualify for trade-in, laptops must be up to five years old, have a screen over 12", and be undamaged – with reasonable wear and tear accepted.
Laptops must be in full working order and be complete with a functioning battery, accessories and leads.
The laptop must be sent in to Three, with a copy of the claim form, after 23 days and before 52 days from the purchase date.
Any existing data stored on the laptop will be wiped and unused parts recycled.
Provided everything matches the consumer's description of the computer, Three will send cash to the subscriber via bank transfer – with £10 included to cover postage costs.
Three is running the laptop trade-in scheme until the end of 2011.
Cashback can only be offered on qualifying products, with desktop PCs not included as part of the offer.
Equally, Three cannot accept laptops or netbooks with a screen size less than 12".
