Want the newest features and speed but don't know what to do with your older Mac, iPad or iPod?The world of technology marches on relentlessly and we always want the latest and greatest. Now your friends at FirstTech are making this easy by accepting your older device as a trade-in towards a nice, shiny new model. It's as simple as 1, 2, 3.
1 Come on in with your Mac, iPad or iPod
Just bring your Intel Mac or any working iPad or iPod into the FirstTech store. Tell the Specialist you would like to have your device evaluated as a trade-in. Our service department will do an extensive analysis to ensure it is in fully operational condition. This process will take up to 24 hours. Please be sure to back up all of your data before bringing us your Mac for evaluation.
Remember to bring all of the machine's original accessories (or a working replacement): power cable, mouse and keyboard for a desktop; a charger for a laptop; and earbuds and the sync cable for an iPad or iPod.
2 Opt-in (or out) of the trade
Your Specialist will let you know the value of your trade-in. Naturally, it is entirely up to you to decide if you wish to accept our offer. Remember, the amount of the trade-in credit reduces the amount of sales tax you have to pay on your new model.
3 Purchase a new Mac
When you have decided on your new Mac, iPad or iPod, your Specialist will apply the amount of your trade-in credit towards your purchase. So you'll save yourself some money and will have helped the environment by putting your old model to good use.
Be sure to bring in the earbuds and sync cable to trade in your iPad or iPod. We can help you get through the challenge of moving your data or music from your older device to your new one. So, no more excuses! Check out what it will take to move up to the latest features and get even more use and productivity from your Mac, iPad or iPod. Just contact us at 612-374-8000 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have great used Mac, iPad and iPods models for sale. Our current selection can be found here.Note: Trade-ins are for store credit only.
