Many of us aren’t sure what to do with our old electronics once we upgrade to newer devices. If you’re hanging on to your old iPod, laptop, or video camera and would like an easy way to both declutter and make a few dollars before the holidays, you’re in luck! Many popular retail stores now offer services allowing you to trade in your gently-used or like-new electronics (as well as DVDs, video games, and even books) for cash or store credit.
Check the links below for more information about some of these programs. All of these retailers allow you to trade in your items online with free shipping labels that they provide, and several (including Target, Best Buy, and Radio Shack) also accept items in certain store locations.
If you want to make the most from your items, be sure to compare values at a few different sites. Trade-in values can very widely from one company to another, and a site that offers more for one item might offer half as much for another.

What could be better than making money with something that’s just taking up space in your drawers?
