Best Buy Takes Trades: Tip-of-the-Day #126


At Best Buy Trade In you can trade in "gently used" electronics, including iPods, digital cameras and digital camcorders, for a Best Buy gift card to use towards any purchase at Best Buy!

It's pretty simple. Just follow these four steps to trade in your equipment:

Step 1 - Use the Best Buy Estimator to receive an instant estimate of your trade-in value.

Step 2 - If the value is acceptable to you, register with the Best Buy Trade-In Center.

Step 3 - Complete the transaction, print a prepaid shipping label and ship your items to the Best Buy trade-in center.

Step 4 - A Best Buy gift card will be mailed about 7 to 14 days after receipt of your item.

I love the concept. And, if you're someone who doesn't like the process of listing and selling old electronics on eBay/Craigslist, you've got a sure thing here (given your trade in isn't too outdated). I just went on there to see what I could get for my Palm Tungsten and my Sprint Samsung Instinct. The Palm Tungsten brought me nada - likely because it's 8 years old and in technology years that's the equivalent of a stone tablet. However, the Instinct got $84 which was $34 more than Sprint was offering me using their buyback program. Net net: worth checking out.
