Microsoft continues to push for Windows 10 in different ways. Now not only does the company want the OS on your current PC or Mac, but they’re willing to put down money on getting you a new Windows 10 PC with its Easy Trade Up promotion.
As the name states, you will be able to trade in an old PC or Mac for cash towards a newer PC. The promotion will be available in parts of North America, Europe, and Asia and offers up to $200 for older PCs and up to $300 for Macs no older than six years old.
On paper the process is fairly simple. Just make sure the products qualify, make your purchase within the week (October 14th-October 20th), head to the claim site and provide information on the computer you’re trading in, and finally just send your computer within 30 days. You’ll get your reward in under a month.
The computer you’ll need to purchase must be at least $600 and the one you’ll want to turn in really just needs to be functional and with minor cosmetic damage at most. In other words it must be sellable and require no repair.
The promotion allows for one claim per purchase and up to three per household. We’ll have to wait and see if Microsoft runs a similar promotion for smartphones in the coming months.
