(SPOT.ph) We can all agree that it's a waste having to throw something out despite it still technically being in working order, whether it's for an upgrade or you just got tired and bored of it. Hey, it happens. Worse is you ending up buying the same exact thing—functional and all, just new—for a hefty price. That's where pre-loved, a.k.a. secondhand items come in, typically at a much cheaper price. It's a win-win situation for both the buyer and seller, and we know you're familiar with buying secondhand when it comes to clothes. But did you know that you can do the same if you're a fan of go-to sports-junkie brand Decathlon Philippines? Yup, the store has a special section where you can buy, and even sell, pre-loved fitness and sporting gear.

You have to drop by their physical stores or through their Chat & Collect to purchase the items.

If you have, however, sports equipment you don't want to throw away but you don't use anymore or you're looking for an upgrade, you can sell them through Decathlon's Buy Back program. Yup, you can try selling old equipment back for a price. A win-win situation indeed. 

Note that the products must be in working condition. The website states that they accept all "Decathlon Brands' equipment with an initial selling price at or above P1,500". After filling out the BuyBack form and the initial checking, if the products are eligible, Decathlon will "buy, repair, clean, and then resell" the items so "other sports lovers get to enjoy their value." Save the planet, save your pocket, they say.
