Amazon recently announced its new trade-in program which allows customers to turn in their old music CDs, video games and DVDs for Amazon’s custom gift cards. Recipients can use the cards for any merchandise in the online retailer’s vast inventory.

The program also allows customers to send in old electronics and textbooks in return for a gift card. CD trade-ins are the latest to be added. However, the company doesn’t say how much it is offering in exchange, according to CNET. A Boys II Men “CooleyHighHarmony” CD would earn a user as much as $3.80 in Amazon credit on the first day of the program, the source reports.

“Amazon is constantly updating the Trade-In Program,” said Amazon’s Grace Chung. “Also, the new addition of CDs to the Trade-In Program is a great way for customers to convert and grow their digital music collection. Customers can choose from more than 19 million songs in the Amazon MP3 store.”

To participate, users can select the items they want to trade in –  which must meet product eligibility criteria – from the Amazon database. Then, Amazon supplies customers with a pre-paid shipping label that can be attached to packages for postage. Once the company processes the items, it will add an Amazon.com gift card to the user’s account.
