Best Buy recently launched a new program called Buy Back, which lets those who purchase gear from Best Buy sell their used gear back to Best Buy for a gift card that can be used towards the purchase of new goods. The program applies to mobile phones (post-paid only), laptops, netbooks, tablets and TVs. The price for laptops, netbooks and tablets is $70, the price for phones and TVs was not disclosed by Best Buy. Under the terms of the program, customers who bring their used gear back within six months of the purchase date can receive up to 50% of the purchase price toward new equipment. The program also offers up to 40% of the purchase price for equipment returned between 6 and 12 months, up to 30% for equipment returned between 12 and 18 months, and up to 20% for equipment returned between 18 and 24 months from the original purchase date.
