Using Motorola’s dedicated trade-in website, users are prompted to enter the device model and condition to receive an estimate for the unit. Once they have finished the form with their name and address details they will be given 30 days to send the device to Motorola, who will conduct an inspection of the device. If it matches the description, a prepaid card with the agreed amount will be dispatched which can spent directly from the card or transferred into a bank account.
The downside to all of this is that the offer only applies to purchases made through the MotoMaker store (which will be arriving to the UK in the coming weeks), but the service can be taken advantage of after you’ve already made a Moto G or Moto X purchase, all you need to do is send Motorola a copy of your receipt.
The trade in supports devices old and new, with a pristine Galaxy S5 netting you around 300 USD and an old Moto G at roughly 15 USD, which may or may not be worth it depending on your postage costs.
