Guys,

Was wondering what would be the prices offered by dealers for your existing (can't say older):) flat TVs if you are looking for new purchases from them?

Everywhere and every time I can see offers on CRTs (you know that 1.5k extra for non flat or 21" CRT kinda offers) but never seen for plasma/ lcds/ leds since they are newer.

But I am sure there will be many people who will be upgrading to newer 3d /smarter Tvs since technology is changing every 6 months. They must have purchased those panels in higher costs that time.Are they getting good enogh?

Any exchanger's comments?

It makes no sense to give away our HD TVs for exchange at showroom. They may not reduce the pricing of the new product we are buying, by more than 3-5k, especially when there is already some discount being offered on the new one. It is better to sell if off to our friends or in forum/ quikr / olx etc...

These kind of exchange offers are nothing but gimmicks. There are no takers for old CRTs now, except of recycling. If you look around and bargained, you will get the same or lower price at another shops. True exchange will take place only when the item is in demand in the second hand market. Then it does not make sense offer them to the dealers. So if you wish to dispose your existing TV / fridge sell it directly or through dealers in used goods. Never opt for the exchange offers of dealers. (ofcourse except when there is no resale value and you desperately want to put it out of your home
