If you’re an avid PC gamer, your input peripherals will more than likely be something high up on your priority list in terms of important hardware. Gamers always want the best, hardware that not only does its job properly, but looks the part too. Think your gear needs an upgrade? For the whole month of July, Steelseries will be running the Step-Up Campaign, a trade-in program. This is the perfect opportunity for those who are looking to get their hands on some shiny new gaming peripherals. Potential buyers can trade in their old keyboard, mouse, and headset for up to 30% off their next Steelseries product purchase.
Any peripheral brought in for trade-in will first need to be assessed before the discount amount is established. Items that are damaged or not working will receive a 10% discount, while working peripherals will receive a maximum of 30%.
This discount is only applicable to any Steelseries products that are available from the selected partners store. Its not just a win for gamers though, as any working gear will be donated to charities in need of hardware, and any broken or damaged equipment will be recycled. All of this is being handled by Blue Falcon IT. Alan Spohr, the Accessory Account Manager at Megarom couldn’t have said it better:
“Not only is SteelSeries contributing to charity, but the gamers themselves, each one of us have an opportunity to make a difference to someone in need. With this Campaign everyone comes out a winner”
There are various retailers who are part of the campaign, so choice really shouldn’t be an issue:
I bought my first Steelseries keyboard last year, and I’m still in love with it. They have a variety of hardware to choose from, so there is bound to be something that appeals to you. If you’re looking for an upgrade, you really couldn’t ask for a better deal with this campaign. For more information, click here. If you’re a tl;dr kind of person, perhaps this unofficial strip will offer a better explanation.
