Our sisters over at Racked National sniffed around the Consumerist and found some leaked info about a new program at Best Buy through the Geek Squad, where you can basically trade in your old iPods and other products for a credit towards a new purchase. Well, it's about damn time! On the downside, in order to cash in on the program, you have to purchase the plan when you originally buy the product. So you have to pay for the privilege of selling your stuff back to Best Buy? Details are still fuzzy, but this is what's in the works to be announced in a Super Bowl ad next year. [Racked National]
