If you have an old streaming device you've been looking to unload, Amazon (opens in new tab) has a tempting offer you shouldn't miss.
For a limited time, the online retailer will pay you up to $2.99 (via an Amazon gift card) for your old Roku (opens in new tab), Apple (opens in new tab), or Google (opens in new tab) streamer. That by itself may not sound like a good deal, but here's where it gets interesting. If you decide to buy a 4K Fire TV (opens in new tab) or Amazon's new Fire TV Cube (opens in new tab), Amazon will give you an extra $35 bonus credit (opens in new tab) in addition to the $2.99 Amazon gift card (opens in new tab).
With the bonus and $2.99 gift card, you can get a 4K Fire TV (opens in new tab) for $32 — the lowest price ever for this streamer. (The few times it's been on sale, the 4K Fire TV sold for $45). Or for an even better deal, you can get the Editors' Choice Fire TV Cube for just $82. That's the best price we've seen for Amazon's uber streamer and it's actually better than the $30 discount Amazon offered on the day it announced its Fire TV Cube.
Best Buy Trade-In (opens in new tab) will give you $40 for a current-gen Apple TV 4K (which beats Amazon's combined $37.99 offer), but otherwise, Best Buy won't buy back any used streaming devices from other brands. That makes Amazon's combined trade-in and bonus offer the best deal around (excluding selling on eBay (opens in new tab), which could yield more money, but also requires more work).
