Gift Your Tech this Christmas
Many of us are subconscious hoarders and it’s only during celebratory seasons like Christmas, when the prospect of having guests over for dinner, compels us to tidy up our homes. This is when long forgotten things pop-up, like old gadgets that we’ve long retired – from Nokia 3310s to primitive versions of the iPhone.
If you’re ready to let your tech items go, don’t just throw them in the trash – get them traded-in or recycled with Newstead and receive cash vouchers! Here’s what you need to know about Newstead’s Gift Your Tech initiative.
When and where to trade
From now till 27 Jan ‘17, gather the old tech items cluttering up your home – PCs, notebooks, tablets and smartphones – and trade them in at these 12 participating Newstead outlets:
Newstead’s tech guys will conduct a thorough evaluation and if your stuff’s still in resalable condition, you’ll be given cash vouchers equivalent to the trade-in value. The vouchers are valid for a year from its date of issue, and the best part is that they can be combined and used together in one receipt!
If you’ve been wanting new gadgets or eyeing that savvy new tech product, now’s the time to treat yo-self.
*Cash vouchers are for illustration purposes only
For every trade-in received, Newstead’s donating 20% of the trade-in value to charity. In a bid to help local communities and empower disadvantaged children with learning disabilities, Newstead is aiming to raise $20,000 for their beneficiary TOUCH Community Services.
Who would’ve thought your old and unwanted tech stuff, lying around in your house, would find new purpose in making a difference in someone’s life?
Your hard disks will be completely wiped
We’ve heard stories of tech geniuses hacking into devices to retrieve confidential information even after factory resets are performed and some of you might be iffy about handing over your stuff to people you don’t know.
To give you peace of mind, Newstead’s sending the devices you’ll be trading-in or recycling for complete data cleansing. Partnering with PC Dreams, Newstead promises you that your personal information will never be compromised. It’s their way of raising awareness of the importance of data security.
Recycling old tech gadgets saves the environment
Shattered screens. Faulty buttons. You might not think twice throwing your unsalvageable smartphone into the trash, but e-waste recycling goes a long way in protecting the environment. It limits land pollution, reduces the need for metal mining, and is integral to the conservation of natural resources.
For items no longer in resalable condition, you’ll have the option of recycling them at Newstead through this campaign. Turn in your pre-loved computers, phones, keyboards, tablets so professionals can dismantle and extract the materials and turn them into new products. And for your recycling efforts, they’ll gift you a book of discount vouchers!
Get these with your cash vouchers
If you haven’t done enough giving this Christmas, use your cash vouchers to buy tech gifts for yourself or your friends.
