Program lets you trade in old electronics for Best Buy gift cards


If you got a new tablet or laptop for Christmas, there may be a way to make a little cash off of your old one.

Best Buy has a trade-in recycle program, and it's a convenient way for you to bring used electronics to Best Buy and trade them in for gift cards.

If it's an item Best Buy doesn't need, you can still get rid of the item by recycling it and keeping it out of a landfill.

"Something like 68 percent of us adults are going to buying technology gifts during the holiday season, and we are assuming a large percentage are going to be replacing items and we want to make sure those items are being taken care of responsibly," Alexis Ernst said.

There may be a fee involved with recycling larger appliances, TVs and monitors.
