Mobile recycling company Redeem teams up with Boots to offer incentives
Redeem has partnered with big brands, including Boots, to encourage consumers to recycle their phones in return for vouchers.
The mobile recycling company has joined forces with Boots to offer Advantage Card points, as well as Ticketmaster and Royal Mail for reward points or gift cards.
Redeem has worked with charities in the past, by converting consumers’ mobile phones into donations.
The company awards up to £202 for iPhones, £165 for the Nokia N96 and £110 for Sony Ericsson’s Xperia X1.
Handsets are gathered in the UK, shipped to Hong Kong for processing and refurbishment, and then sold on to emerging markets such as South America, India and Africa.
