Amazon India has launched a buyback scheme for the Lumia 950 and 950 XL, through which the retailer is offering gift cards worth ₹3,000 ($45) to customers trading in their handsets for the latest Lumias. There's a caveat, however, as the offer is only eligible on devices sold through ReGlobe. The offer is valid from November 30 to December 31, and is honored on all purchases made through Cloudtail, Microsoft's authorized seller on Amazon.
These are the handsets eligible for the buyback offer:
The retailer has mentioned that the gift card will be issued 45 days from the purchase of the handset and a successful sale on ReGlobe.
Now here's where the promotion loses its shine. We tried initiating a sale for a year-old Lumia 930, and got a quote of a meager ₹5,760 ($88). That's for a device that cost ₹36,000 at retail ($545). Other Lumias did not fare any better, as the Lumia 1520 received a quote of ₹5,000 ($75), and a three-month old Lumia 530 just ₹1,700 with the bill included.
While the deal does not make much sense for devices like the Lumia 930, if you're looking to exchange your Lumia 530 or Lumia 432, it is worth taking a look. Head to the link below to find more details on the promotion, and let us know if you've received a better quote in the comments.
