This is a good one for me this week because I am struggling with some personal issues. 1. I learned that it is much easier to have a relationship with friends than with family...
Costco Trade-In & Recycle Program For Used Electronics
If your house is anything like my house, then the chances are you have some old, unused electronics laying around. I cannot bring myself to throw them away because I know that is not what you are supposed to do.
I was at my local Costco yesterday (I am a bulk shopping fanatic that usually alternates between Sam's and Costco) and I heard this guy talking about their program for trading in used electronics.
Costco has partnered with Gazelle to offer you money for your used electronics in a program called the Costco.com Trade-In and Recycle Program. So how do they calculate what to offer you?
Gazelle has a sophisticated pricing engine. It gathers tons of data on your item's value. Based on your answers to our questions, we make the best offer possible.
For most items, the older it is, the less valuable it gets. If you wait too long, it might not be worth as much as it is today.
When an item has no resale value because it's too old or doesn't work Gazelle will gladly recycle it for you, even if we can't offer you any money.
This is a fabulous way to get rid of some of the things laying around your house that you no longer use and get a little cash (or a Costco Cash Card) in return. They will buy Cell Phones, Digital Cameras, MP3 Players, PDAs, Laptops, GPS devices, Gaming Consoles, Camcorders, Video Games and More!
Even better, here is their Promise to You:
- Every item gets an offer
- Personal data wiped from all items
- Free shipping and packaging for qualifying items
