From April 17-23, customers shopping at The Shack will have the chance to win a new car when participating in the retailer's Trade & Save program. By bringing eligible working products and accessories into any participating RadioShack store, customers will be able to enter to win a Nissan LEAF, the only 100-percent electric, zero-emissions vehicle available in the mass market. Plus, The Shack guarantees a minimum trade-in value of $10 on any eligible working mobile phone**.
"The Shack not only makes it easier than ever to recycle old electronics, but we offer an appraisal of value, which can provide credit toward purchasing the latest and greatest technology," said Scott Young, executive vice president and chief merchandise officer for RadioShack Corporation. "With RadioShack locations nationwide, we are trying to make it convenient and rewarding for customers to trade in their old electronics, rather than putting them into the trash and eventually landfills."
Customers not interested in recycling their old devices can enter to win the Nissan LEAF online beginning April 17 at www.RadioShack.com/LEAF. The drawing will take place on April 27.
