Just answer a few questions either online or in an Apple Store regarding the model and condition of your Apple Watch. We’ll provide either an estimated trade-in value or a simple way to recycle it.
If you’re trading in online, we’ll calculate your estimated trade-in value during the purchase of your new Apple Watch. Then we’ll send you a trade-in kit (at no cost to you) so you can send us your device. Once we receive your trade-in device, a team will inspect it and verify its condition. If everything checks out, we’ll either refund the purchase method you used to buy your new Apple Watch or send you an Apple Store Gift Card via email. If the trade-in credit exceeds the cost of your new device, the remaining amount will be refunded to you on an Apple Store Gift Card. If the condition doesn’t match what you described, a new estimated trade-in value will be sent to you via email. You’ll have the option to either accept this revised quote or reject it. If you reject it, your device will be sent back to you at no charge.
If you accept the trade-in estimate in the store, we’ll give you instant credit toward a purchase.
And if you choose to recycle your device, we’ll either handle it in the store or provide a prepaid shipping label so you can send your device to our accredited recycling partner.
