O2 Recycle has recently announced a new scheme where they will price match Envirofone and Mazuma Mobile on any handset that you recycle with them.
In order to get the price match simply recycle your mobileas normal with O2 Recycle then check the advertised handset prices on Mazuma and Envirofone. If you see the price higher on either site within 7 days then fill in the price match form on their website and they will contact you within 24 hours to pay you the difference.
The price match must be on a fully working handset, will be on the cash price not voucher or other payment methods and you can still claim if you have already sent your order in to be recycled.
This offer will last to the end of September 2011 but if it proves to be successful then O2 are looking to extend the time period. The price match will be paid via whichever method you had the money for the phone you originally recycled.
Not only will you be earning extra cash by recycling your old phones at O2 Recycle but all the profits they make are donated to their Think Big initiative. The Think Big initiative aims to help young people aged 13-25 who are living in local communities. Under the scheme the young people will benefit from a package of help, support, mentoring and a cash grant for any ideas or projects that they may have.
There is still an estimated 90 million unwanted mobile phones lying around people’s homes in the UK waiting to be recycled so why not dig them out and earn some cash at O2 Recycle here.
