By recycling a used device, the user gets a significant discount for a new device
As part of the Old for New offer, new or existing private users can bring used devices for evaluation at A1 sales points and receive a voucher for the estimated value of the device. The obtained voucher can be used to purchase new devices from the A1 offer, namely mobile and Homebox devices.
A big advantage of the Old-for-new offer is the possibility of bringing more devices for valuation. A private user can thus bring as many as five used devices for evaluation. In addition to mobile phones, users can also bring laptops, smart watches, game consoles, tablets, headphones, as well as all Apple devices for evaluation.
In the period from 19.09. until 9.10. as part of a special offer, users who bring used devices for evaluation and receive a voucher will save more than HRK 1,000 when purchasing a new device from the Samsung S22 series.
Environmental care and circular economy
For years, A1 Croatia has been conducting activities that motivate the community to recycle electronic waste and extend the use of existing devices. Thus, in addition to savings for the user, the goal of the Old for New offer is to encourage socially responsible behavior of A1 users, because by returning used devices they participate in A1’s circular economy initiatives.
The circular economy is an important part of the sustainability strategy of the company A1 Croatia, which groups its sustainable activities under the name He’s doing the right thing and through which, among other things, he wants to achieve carbon neutrality by 2030. With the help of projects that promote business sustainability, A1 Croatia managed to reduce CO2 emissions by as much as 23% in 2021, i.e. by as much as 8,656 tons compared to 2020. Through the project of proper disposal and reuse of electronic devices from 2015, A1 Croatia has now extended the life of 355,876 devices, reduced CO2 emissions and saved numerous natural resources, and last year alone the number of recycled and refurbished devices was almost 80 thousand.
