Best Buy wants to buy back your old tech to let you stay up to date on all the latest new tech. Best Buy has announced the Best Buy Buy Back Program, now say that five times fast. With the Best Buy Buy Back Program, you’ll know what your post paid mobile phone, laptop, netbook, tablet or TV in good condition is worth, anytime over the next two years (4 years for TVs). Just bring it back when you’re ready and get up to 50% of the original purchase price on a Best Buy Gift Card to use toward your next big thing. This program is free until February 12 and then you will have to pay for it so if your tired of your relatively new phone and want another one, this is an easy way to make up some of the cost of the new phone.
Lots of folks are like well how is this different from say eBay or Verizon’s trade-in program. The Buy Back Program at Best Buy delivers:
- Assurance: We’ll buy back your product (provided it is in good working order with all of the originally included parts and accessories) — unlike trade-in or other used product marketplaces which won’t take a product, or offer a reasonable price, if there isn’t a lot of demand for the product.
- Transparency: You’ll know how much your product in good condition is worth upfront, as soon as you buy your product, without guessing or haggling about the price — unlike eBay and Craigslist which often involve screening buyers and then negotiating with them to settle on the price.
- Convenience: You’ll instantly get a gift card and can conveniently bring your product back in store — unlike trade-in or reseller markets (eBay/Craigslist) which require packing and shipping your product and waiting for a gift card via mail, or involve the stress of selling on eBay/ Craigslist and having to meet someone and arrange for payment.
This program seems like one of the fairest ones we have seen up to date, it features tons of transparency and you know what you’re dealing with up front which we like.
