ASUS have launched a new trade in scheme to help you pick up one of their latest graphics cards.
If you wish to gain the benefit of this ASUS trade-In scheme then you would need to purchase one of the selected ASUS graphics cards, see the list below, during the period 1st July to 31st August 2019.
Once you bought your new ASUS GPU you would then fill in an online claim form within 30 days of your new graphics card purchase. Then you would have 45 days to send them your old graphics card and upon recieving that ASUS would send you a bank transfer for the prescribed value of your GPU.
ASUS Graphics Cards You Can Buy With Your GPU Trade In
How much can you get back on your Graphics card trade in from ASUS?
Here is a list of graphics cards that ASUS are accepting and a cash value in UK pounds. There are 3 brackets for each graphics card, which depends on the value of the card you are buying from ASUS. So for example if you are buying a more expensive GPU, like the TURBO-RTX2080-8G, then you will be getting the larger cash amount. Whereas if you were purchasing the DUAL-GTX1650-4G then you would be looking at the lower price next to your trade in card below.

Lets assume I am looking to upgrade my GPU within this promotion period. This deal presents us gamers with three considerations.
Firstly, how much would I get on the open market for my second hand GPU, somewhere like ebay?
Then the second consideration is, would I rather trade with a random person online and possibly make a few extra dollar on my sale or would it be much simpler to package up my gpu and deal with a GPU company, like ASUS?
And finally, how much is ASUS selling their cards for at the moment compared to other GPU manufacturers?
I think I would personally go with something like an ASUS trade-in, over selling privately, just for the peace of mind, but then I am not looking to capitalise on every last coin for my hardware.
I wonder if ASUS are just then selling the traded in old GPU hardware on ebay themselves or perhaps they are stripping the cards down for reusable components?
Either way I like the innovation and the extra options this can offer gamers. Would you sell your old GPU privately or with ASUS? And have any of you guys gone down this route before or perhaps you always sell your GPU to the second hand market and never have any issues with it?
