You’ve seen the dust accumulate on your dated MacBook, Xbox 360 or tablet. Now here’s your chance to do something about it.
As long as it still functions and qualifies, trade it in at a Best Buy store between Jan. 23 and Feb. 1 and get — at minimum — a $75 Best Buy gift card.
Who knew recycling could be so lucrative?
For those who put “de-clutter the homestead” atop their New Year’s Resolutions, it’s time to follow through on those ambitions. Pad the pocketbook with 10 Days of Trade-In while getting an early start on your spring cleaning.
Oh, and if your small electronics don’t meet the criteria for the $75 gift card, they probably will for the $10 Best Buy gift card deal.
At the very least, even if your phone or computer has been long dead, you can still drop it off at any Best Buy location nationwide to be recycled for free, regardless of where you originally purchased it.
Fun fact: Knowing that technology is the fastest growing waste stream on the planet, Best Buy has been an industry leader recycling 409 pounds of electronics each minute that stores are open.
As for the skinny on 10 Days of Trade-In, here’s what you need to know.
