In preparation of the back-to-school season (yes, it's that time already!) Future Shop has launched a laptop trade-in program that will afford students a $100 voucher toward the purchase of a new laptop when they trade in an old model.
The trade-in program begun on Friday, August 8, and will only run until tomorrow: Thursday, August 14, 2008.
Participating stores include those in the cities of Calgary, Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat, and Red Deer in Alberta; all stores in the BC cities of Abbotsford, Burnaby, Chilliwack, Coquitlam, Courtney, Kamloops, Kelowna, Langley, Nanaimo, North Vancouver, Prince George, Richmond, Surrey, Vancouver, Vernon, Victoria, and West Vancouver; and Ontario-located stores in Ajax, Brampton, East York, Markham, Mississauga, Vaughan, Oakville, Newmarket, North York, Orangeville, Oshawa, Richmond Hill, Scarborough, Toronto and Whitby.
Returned laptops will be safely recycled, says the retailer, in order to help keep the electronics out of landfills.
