Best Buy has a two-tiered trade in program for your old electronics. With either program you can get a Best Buy gift card for your trade in. The first and most lucrative offer is for Apple iPods, Apple Laptops, Mobile Phones and PC Laptops, purchased at Best Buy. You can use the online estimator to determine the value before you decide to trade it in at Best Buy.
For this program, you will need a receipt. However, Best Buy will try to help you to locate your purchase in their computer system if you cannot find your receipt. Only the original purchaser is eligible for the gift card.
The second program is for almost all other types of electronics, regardless of where they were purchased. Go to the Best Buy online estimator and type in the information about your product. You will get an an estimate of the trade-in value. If the amount is acceptable to you, you will print out a pre-paid shipping label and mail the item to the Trade-In Center. A Best Buy gift card will be mailed to you about 14 days after the receipt of your item.
Here are some additional items that are accepted under the second option:
Camcorders – Game Systems – GPS Receivers – Digital Cameras – Car Audio Receivers - PDA’s and Hand-Held Computers and more. HERE is the link to the trade in program.
Another option is to buy online and then pick it up at your closest Best Buy to avoid the shipping charges.
