San Clemente, CA, October 11, 2011 --(PR.com)-- Play N Trade Franchise, Inc., a franchisor of retail video games stores throughout North America, is pleased to announce a new trade-in program for Apple products that include iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches, in exchange for store credit or cash. With this program, Play N Trade intends to offer immediate gratification to customers, as well as provide a more convenient alternative to EBay. With the trade-in program, customers avoid having to deal with shipping their items and waiting for payment to arrive at a later date. Since the holiday season of gift buying is quickly approaching, the trade-in of Apple products offers another way for their customers to purchase games. Since most iPod, iPhone and iPad trade-in values are significantly higher than typical game trade-ins, customers will be able to build store credit very quickly.
Play N Trade plans to refurbish the Apple devices for resell, but currently has no plans to enter the business of selling phone plans. All trade-in products undergo Play N Trade’s stringent refurbishment process to insure it passes proper quality standards prior to resell. If products do not qualify for the refurbish program, Play N Trade will properly and responsibly recycle it at no extra cost.
“We are excited to offer this new service to our customers. As the gaming market moves forward, we are committed to evolving our services to ensure we continue to meet the needs of our customers and our stores,” said Sean Finnigan, President of Play N Trade.
Mr. Finnigan continues, “If customers have an old iPhone, iPad, or other Apple product, they may now visit their local Play N Trade retail store and exchange it for something brand new. Bring or send your old technology to a Play N Trade store and we’ll determine if it qualifies for our refurbishment program. If the device meets our refurbishment standards we will assess the monetary value of the device and in exchange offer store credit or cash.”
For customers interested in having their Apple devices repaired instead of being used as a trade-in for credit, Play N Trade is excited to announce an Apple Repair Program to complement their Video Game Console Repair Program. Customers can bring or send damaged or broken devices to Play N Trade for analysis, repair and return as quickly as possible.
