Best Buy’s New Buy Back Program
With the incredibly fast advancements in technology, buyers are getting a little disgruntled that the phone they had for 3 months is now outdated and virtually worthless to other buyers. This can become very expensive for those buyers that want to own the next great phone every time one comes out, which is about once every few months. Retail prices for phones are ridiculously expensive, as shown in the iPhone 4 retail price of $699.99 for the cheapest version. That being said, waiting a few years for an upgrade can be just as unbearable as shelling out that much money for a phone. Luckily, those buyers that want to get a new phone or other electronic device can sell their phone back toBest Buy for a percent of the phone’s original price.
Although this may not be the greatest deal ever, at least buyers are getting some money back for their outdated electronics. They can sell their televisions, cell phones, laptops, netbooks, and tablets for a certain percentage of its original value depending on how long ago the buyers bought it. These products will be bought back at 50% of their value within 6 months of their purchase, 40% between 6 and 12 months, 30% between 12 and 18 months, and 20% between 18 and 24 months. Televisions will also be bought back at 10% of their value when purchased between 24 and 48 months ago, but this does not apply for the other products.
Customers who take advantage of this fair deal will receive a Best Buy gift card that they must use within a certain time frame. As comes with all good things, there is always a catch, but at least you are still getting something back for your old electronic devices.
Overall, this buy back program is pretty good for the average person that wants to get a few bucks back for their fairly new electronic devices. The main downside is that the device has to have been purchased from a Best Buy store, and you must pay for the Buy Back program at the time of purchase of the device. The pricing for this program ranges from as little at $69.99 to as much as $299.99. If you think that you will want to upgrade your electronic device within a few months, this program is the right option for you. If you believe you will be content with your device for a significant amount of time, then you probably do not need this program. Even if you do not use this program, it is still comforting to know that it is there if you ever need it.
