I love my Kindle way more than I thought I would when I first purchased it. I had been holding out for years on purchasing a digital reading device. I look at Nooks, Kindles, and the like many times but kept putting it off. I had a couple of tablets that I liked – my Samsung Galaxy Tab being my favorite – but they all ended up broken for one reason or another. My then-2-year-old loved my tablet so much, he often watched it and played games on it and eventually dropped it and broke the screen (it was inevitable, right?). So, after a number of months without one, I decided to replace it.

I did some research and decided that a Kindle would do the same thing that my tablet did and would make it easier to read all of my Kindle books (and I do mean a LOT of them) from my device. It could still do all the things I did on my tablet like watch Netflix, and it was cheaper. It was a win-win all around. So, I snagged one up when there was a deal and I loved it. My 5-year-old also loved it and I really should have gotten him his own because unfortunately, it ended up with a cracked screen so now I’m in the market for a replacement. That’s when I came across this deal from Amazon to trade in your Kindle for a new one.
Here are some reasons you might want to trade in or trade up your Kindle:

- Just to treat yourself

I was surprised that I’d get $10 trade-in for my Kindle Touch, I’ve been thinking about getting a new one now that they have the blue light filter.
