Best Buy has announced that it is giving consumers another reason to try the new Buy Back Program by extending the offer to “future proof” smart phone purchases for free through Feb. 26 in all Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile standalone stores across the country. As part of this special two-week offer, customers can also receive the Buy Back Program at no cost when purchasing tablets, including the Apple iPad, at Best Buy Mobile standalone stores.
The Buy Back Program can be purchased by customers when buying a new product at Best Buy and redeemed at a later time for up to 50 percent of the original purchase price paid in the form of a Best Buy gift card, as long as the device is in good working condition and includes all original parts. For mobile phone purchases, customers receive the percentage back of the original retail price, prior to any specific carrier-based rebates. So if a customer buys a Nexus S and decides to upgrade in five months, they would get up to half of the $530 original retail price, or up to $265 back, to use towards their next smart phone purchase.
