Step 1 - Determine Trade-In Value
Check our Trade-In Value listing for the respective amount which you will receive for your trade-in club. Please note the following:
There are no condition ratings for the clubs. However, the clubs must be in playable condition with no more than normal wear & tear.
All clubs must meet the minimum condition standard in order to be accepted for trade-in. By committing to trade-in your club, you certify that your club meets our condition guidelines. Clubs received that do not meet our minimum condition guidelines are subject to be returned at your expense.
Clubs with the following defects do not meet our minimum condition guidelines and will not be accepted:
Dented metal woods.
Metal woods with significant "sky-marks" or "pop-up marks" on the crown.
Irons or wedges with grooves worn more than 50% smooth.
Any clubs with cracked or bent shafts.
Any clubs with cracked or badly scratched heads.
Wedges with excessive sole wear or dings from rocks or cart paths.
Any clubs with chrome damage.
Shafts with excessive bag wear or paint scratches.
Ping woods with aftermarket re-shaft work are not accepted unless the work was done by Ping.
If a club is deemed unfit for resale, we reserve the right to refuse it and return it to you, or make you an offer based on the circumstances.
Prices are subject to change without notice.
Iron sets must include eight (8) consecutively numbered irons. Specialty wedges may be included in the set. If you include additional wedges in the set, they are worth 1/10th of the overall set price. (Individual irons are not subject to trade-in except for select wedges. See Trade-In Value listing for acceptable wedges.)
Step 2 - Apply Trade-In Credit
There are two options for the trade-in credit:
Credit may be applied to a current purchase at Austads. Purchase may include any available product (clubs, bags, ball, shoes, apparel, etc). If your current purchase is less than the trade-in credit, the remaining credit will be issued as a Austads gift certificate.
Credit may be applied to a Austads gift certificate which can be redeemed or given as a gift. This is ideal for selling clubs now at higher trade-in values and using the gift certificate later for your purchase.
Please note that in most instances, the trade-in credit may be higher if applied to a Austads gift certificate. Gift certificates generated from trade-in credit cannot be applied to previous purchases.
Step 3 - Shop Or Checkout
Once you have determined how your trade-in credit will be applied, you can either continue to shop or go directly to checkout:
Your trade-in club and trade-in credit will be shown in your shopping cart (remember this credit will not be applied until the trade-in is processed by the redemption center - see Step 5).
Follow the checkout procedures.
At the bottom of the Order Confirmation page, there will be a confirmation of your trade-in transaction.
Step 4 Ship Trade-In Club(s)
The cost of shipping your trade-in club is FREE.
Once you have completed your trade-in transaction, the Trade-In Confirmation page will have a link to the FedEx site where you can click to print your shipping label and manifest. There is also a link on the FedEx site, that shows you the closest FedEx drop off location. You will also receive an e-mail which includes the online label creation link.
Step 5 - Receive Trade-In Credit or Gift Certificate
Once your trade-in club is received at the redemption center, it will be promptly processed. In most cases, the processing should be completed within 5 business days after receipt of the club(s).
If your Trade-In credit was applied to a purchase at Austads, then the credit will be issued to your credit card. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you.
If your Trade-In credit was applied to a Austads gift certificate, you will receive an e-mail with the gift certificate #. The Gift Certificate can then be redeemed on your next purchase at Austads. Gift certificates generated from trade-in credit cannot be applied to previous purchases.
