Tesco Mobile in partnership with Assurant has launched a trade in service, inviting and allowing Tesco Mobile users to donate their old devices in exchange for money or a Tesco voucher.

Customers can visit the Assurant Tesco Mobile trade in website to receive an instant valuation for their mobile phone or device. Customers who accept the offer can then receive the device value as a cash deposit into their bank account or as a Tesco e-Gift Card, with most devices and payments processed within 5 working days.

The initiative forms part of Tesco Mobile’s ongoing commitment to sustainability and value for customers.

Rachel Swift, Chief Customer Officer, said: “We’re always looking for ways to bring supermarket value to mobile, and we know families are facing increased cost of living pressures right now. Partnering with Assurant is just another way we’re helping our customers save money – by turning their old mobiles or tablets into cash or vouchers. It’s also an opportunity to help reduce waste by enabling the resale of used devices, reducing the number of mobile phones in landfill.”

Chris Woolnough, UK Managing Director at Assurant, said: “We are proud to partner with Tesco Mobile, the largest mobile virtual network operator in the UK, to help consumers by putting money back in their pockets in exchange for their used devices. When a pre-owned device is repurposed, it means a new device does not need to be manufactured which avoids producing CO2 emissions and also reduces the amount of minerals needed to be mined to produce the device.” 

Trading in a device with Assurant is easy. Just follow the steps below:

  1. Follow the link on the Tesco Mobile website and answer a few quick questions about your device to get an instant valuation
  2. If you’re happy with the valuation, accept the offer and package up your device
  3. Post your device to Assurant for free using a print-at-home pre-paid label. Once they’ve got your device, they’ll do some checks, and if everything’s in line with their valuation, they’ll transfer your money to your bank account, or send you your Tesco voucher.
