If you’ve got some “gently used” electronic devices that you’d like to trade up for, Best Buy has a trade-in program. This could be a great, low-cost way to unload that phone or PDA you never really used and get something you really want. It’s also a terrific way to do some cheap Christmas shopping for your gadget loving friends and family.

You can view the details here. I got this tip from my colleague, closet installer extraordinaire Toni Ahlgren. Thanks, Toni!

  1. Christine,
    Good question! I had to go to the FAQ section of the website, where it says that they liquidate the merchandise through outlets such as eBay. That’s interesting! Of course, you can sell on eBay yourself, but it’s a pain in the neck if you only do it occasionally (in my opinion).
    So, your credit is only good for new items. It’s still a good deal, though, to get credit for those perfectly good devices that you never use.
