NextWorth said Tuesday it has paired up with Lenovo to allow you to trade in gently used electronics at its site and then to receive a Lenovo eGift card or check that will be good for purchase of new Lenovo laptops and tablets.

It’s an interesting twist on the subject of trading in used tech for dough, as you’re not limited to recycling only Lenovo products to get in on the deal. NextWorth says computers, smartphones, digital cameras, and more—even from competitors—will be accepted.

And, if you trade in a non-Lenovo laptop with NextWorth by Sept. 29, you’ll be eligible for a $20 bonus above the price NextWorth determines the older laptop is worth. Just enter the code TRADEINFORLENOVO when you check out.

If you are a big fan of Lenovo products, this deal may be for you. Note that if you are not wedded to or attracted by this offer, there are many other sites where you can trade used electronics for cash.

However, sites that take PC laptops and pay cash for them are a bit rare, which makes the NextWorth offer more attractive. Here’s how the NextWorth program works and here’s an FAQ on the program for more information.

You may want to check out NextWorth competitors BuyBackWorld.com and Gazelle.com, for competitive prices on trading in smartphones, Apple laptops, Apple tablets, Apple iPods, and tablets from other manufacturers. These two sites, however, do not take non-Apple laptops in trade.
