If you’ve been eyeing the latest AAA games but know your current graphics card just won’t cut it, Micro Center's new GPU Trade-In Program can help. Retire the old and revitalize your whole system with a fresh GPU – and get some money back on your dated graphics card at the same time.
Here’s how it works: If your graphics card came from a Micro Center store, bring it in and we’ll give you store credit to put towards whatever you want, including the latest and greatest GPUs. It’s an easy four-step process that can net you a chunk of change to put towards your next upgrade. Let’s break it all down.
Before you trade your graphics card in, you’re going to want to know how much it could be worth. We have a couple of ways to find this out.
Option one is to search through your order history using your linked Micro Center account. If you’re logged in, click “Search GPU By Order History” and all purchases that included a graphics card will be pulled up.
Alternatively, if you don’t have an account, made your purchase before creating an account, or your GPU was a gift, you can search by serial number. Simply locate your card’s serial number – they can be found on both the box and the card itself – and input it in the search field. Your order should be pulled up right away, along with the estimated value of your card.
If you know that your GPU came from Micro Center, but both of the above options returned no results, bring it in! Our associates will be happy to check our records and help locate your purchase.
Please note for above options: Prices adjust every Monday based on the current market value. Only GPUs from Micro Center qualify for our Trade-in program. A product evaluation is required; only functional devices are accepted.
Once you’ve got an estimated trade-in value, it’s time to bring your GPU in for testing. Each GPU trade-in must be tested to confirm that it still works and to give you a final valuation for your card.
But before you head into the store, take a moment to schedule your evaluation. This will save you time, as you won’t have to sign in and wait at the store itself. Just pick a time, show up, and drop off your card, no waiting.
Now it’s time to bring your card in for the assessment. Either head to the store at your pre-chosen time or just walk in (though there may be a bit of a wait if you skip scheduling an evaluation).
Our certified technicians will do a once-over of the card and run some tests. All trade-ins must be functional to receive credit. After testing, the technician will give you a final valuation of the card.
Note: The value of graphics cards varies. Once you’ve located your GPU using our look-up tool, we’ll provide you with an estimate for your device. The estimate provided shows a daily value. The value of your product may not be the same in the days to follow. Estimates are subject to change based on a final evaluation of your product.
We’ve saved the best for last. Once your GPU has been evaluated and confirmed to be functional, we’ll buy back the card for store credit. What you do from there is up to you! You can put that credit towards a new GPU, swap to a PlayStation 5, or grab the latest MacBook Pro.
When you choose our GPU Trade-in program, you can enjoy the following advantages:
Yes. To be eligible for our GPU Trade-in program the graphics card must have been purchased at a Micro Center. If you’re unsure if your graphics card was purchased at Micro Center, use our serial number finder or bring your device in store for a manual look up.
Yes, your GPU must be functioning in order to be eligible for trade-in. Once you gather an estimate of your graphics card, schedule an in-store visit for your product evaluation. We will provide you with a final estimate once the evaluation is complete. Any future estimates are subject to change if the initial estimate for trade-in is denied by the customer.
