Trading in Nook for Nook Color

Just wondering...is there any program available that allows you to trade in your Nook (I bought mine just about a year ago) to get a Nook Color?  I love my Nook but do kind of wish I had some of the options of the Color...thanks.

No. Even if such a program existed, you would be able to get more money by selling it yourself (kind of like trading in your car versus selling it yourself.)

Thanks.  And I just saw another thread asking the same question.  I should have looked before I asked but thanks for taking the time to respond!

Unless of course the frame is cracked due to a manufacturer's defect, which has happened to numerous owners around the 13-15 month mark from no fault of their own.  In that case you are pretty much stuck since B&N offers no trade in and doesn't repair the damage.

Unless of course the owner purchased the extended warranty.

That's because it is a cosmetic defect that does not affect functionality. There are very few companies that would offer a trade in for a cosmetic defect out of warranty.
