Campus Technology Store guests may now go green and get some green with a new technology trade-in program. The program, which began April 23, allows guests to trade in iPhones, iPods, and iPads for an in-store credit good for anything sold at the Campus Technology Store. As of May 22, 2012 the program also accepts MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro laptops.
“We are excited to expand the services we offer to the campus community,” said Campus Technology Store Manager, Mario Carvajal. “We are starting with iOS devices and hope to begin offering trade-in programs for other devices in the coming month. Taking advantage of the program is easy, and we would encourage everyone to come in and see what their devices are worth.”
To participate in the program, guests need only bring in their devices for evaluation by a store employee. The employee confirms the make and model and examines the item for wear and tear, nicks, and scratches. These details are then entered into an online form that generates a trade-in value based on the specific condition and configuration of the guest’s device. If guests accept the offer, they turn in their devices and get the trade-in value as in-store credit or a Campus Technology Store gift card.
Trade-in values are estimated by NextWorth, a company that specializes in electronics trade-in and recycling nationwide. NextWorth is also Target’s technology trade-in partner. The Campus Technology Store also will accept any cell phone for safe and secure recycling—also through NextWorth.
