trade-ups program rules
To participate in the Trade-UPS program, the customer agrees to the following rules
Trading In a Single UPS: Customers can trade in a UPS, for a new UPS, up to four times the VA rating of the UPS being traded in. (For example, if an customer trades in a 750VA UPS, they can purchase up to a 3000VA UPS under the this program). IMPORTANT: The VA rating of the UPS to be purchased must equal or exceed the amount of the UPS traded in.
Trading In Multiple UPSs: Customers can trade in multiple UPSs for larger UPSs. The VA of the multiple units can be combined, then doubled, to get a maximum VA the customer is eligible to trade up to. Customer cannot trade in UPSs for any single or multiple UPSs of lesser value (VA) than the combined VA of all units traded in.
At time of Trade-UPS purchase, customer can purchase a maximum of five additional items at “Trade-UPS/Cross-Sell Pricing”. Additional items can only include Surge products, or UPS accessories relative to the application level of the UPS(s) that are being purchased. Trade-UPS/Cross-Sell purchases are limited to the time of initial Trade-UPS purchase, any additional items purchased after the initial Trade-UPS purchase will not be eligible for the Trade-UPS/Cross-Sell discount.
In the event the UPS being traded in is not returned to APC within 30 days of receipt of the new UPS, the customer shall be charged for the amount of the Trade-UPS/Cross-Sell discount. The dollar value of the Trade-UPS/Cross-Sell discount shall be calculated as the difference between APC Estimated Resale Price (ERP) at time of purchase, and the Trade-UPS/Cross-Sell Price. Customer must supply credit card at time of initial Trade-UPS purchase. This credit card will be debited for the amount of the discount if unit being traded in, is not sent to APC within 30 days.
