Retailers that sell electronics are after your business, and that bodes well for your old electronics and your wallet.
A growing cluster of retailers and web sites are snapping up old gear and offering credit toward the purchase of new products.
Where to get cash for old gadgets:
Gazelle.com will sell or recycle your electronics, giving you cash or gift cards in return. The company also buys back electronics at Walmart.com, Costco, Office Depot, Kmart and Sears.
Other websites, such as BuyMyTronics.com, will buy back digital cameras, Apple products and cell phones.
Target takes back old cell phones and video game systems as trade-ins at its Mobile department.
Target’s partner, NextWorth, resells recycled gear through online outlets such as eBay and Amazon. According to USA Today, last year the company bought more than 500,000 old iPhones, iPods, cell phones and video game systems from consumers.
