Amazon Trade-In Program For Cameras NOT Generous (At All), BUT Convenient & Fast.
But, I have already taken over 11,000 pictures with this gear. As such I do not feel too bad.
I started, last week, by sending in the Fujinon XF 35mm prime lens to the Amazon trade-in program. I dropped it off with UPS last Wednesday and yesterday I had the money in my Amazon account. Basically 4-days and that spanned the weekend.
They did NOT give me a great price. They gave me the lowest price they had quoted. Yes, I could have refused BUT that would have left me at square-one again — trying to sell this stuff on my own.
The convenience and speed of payment is GREAT. And for that I am willing to take a hit.
Also there is no hassle.
So it is, as with so much in life, a compromise. I am leaving some ‘money on the table’ BUT gaining by saving myself a ton of time and aggravation.
Today I am going to send in my 50-200mm zoom.
Then the Fuji X-E2s camera with the 18-55mm kit lens. And at that point I will be done with Fuji.
