With holiday gifting done, you may find yourself with countertops cluttered by used electronics that Santa kindly upgraded.  Now Best Buy and Geek Squad make it easy to trade in your older gear by offering a minimum $5 Best Buy gift card on any small used device, no matter where it was originally purchased.

You can get a Best Buy gift card worth at least $5 in exchange for any laptop, tablet, e-reader, mobile phone, MP3 player, gaming hardware, DSLR and digital point and shoot camera, and digital camcorder you bring to any participating Best Buy store through Jan. 19, 2013.  (Normally outdated items wouldn’t get you a gift card, but with this offer ANY of the aforementioned small devices will get you a gift card!)

Approximately 1,300 Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores offer Trade-In for consumers. To learn more about the Trade-In offer or find a store nearby, visit
