Hi guys,

I am planning to buy a digital piano(yamaha/kawai) and I saw that some of you got a trade-in deal 2 y or 5y. what does this mean? You can change your piano for a better one (upgrade)-more expensive in that period of time? Did the dealers mention this to you from the beginning or you approached them for this?

Any input is appreciated.

Thanks a lot!

All so-called trade-in deals are part of
the sales pitch to get you to buy. When
they wave this in front of you, you then
don't notice how inflated the price of
the item is and/or how unearthshattering it
is in performance.

With pianos in particular you don't need
a trade-in deal. Your first piano, digital
or acoustic, could easily last a lifetime.

You can sell a digital piano on ebay for more than you paid for it, if you shop carefully when you buy it in the first place. I watched prices for a P-140 for months and ended up buying it about $100 less than used ones were selling for. So I wouldn't worry about getting rid of something later, just buy what you like now.

I think a lot depends on the piano dealer...some dealers offer such programs while others do not. I think it also depends on the piano...Higher end digitals tend to have better margins. I have a five year period where I can get credit of the original "purchase" price towards the purchase of a more expensive piano.
