The program is designed to lure consumers into purchasing a new DECT cordless or multiline business phone.
When a consumer brings in an old phone to Staples and buys one of the eligible Panasonic or Thomson phones, they will receive $30 back in Staples Rewards.
There will be twelve eligible Panasonic DECT cordless models, starting at $74.99.
Thomson will offer two GE-branded DECT home phones, two RCA-branded two-line phones and three RCA-branded four line models, plus an accessory handset.
Prices will range from $79 for the accessory handset to $179.
The promotion will run from Oct. 12 to Nov. 15.
