[DT]Use Old Electronics to Get Store Credits -- Legally

post #1 of 2

Reuters is reporting that a new program called ecoNEW from a company you are probably familiar with, but never heard of called NEW Customer Service. The company sells extended warranties offered on everything you buy from Best Buy and sell similar warranties via Wal-Mart as well.
Quote:
The new program will allow consumers to return any electronic product that they own to participating stores, even if the stores weren’t where the product was originally purchased. The catch at this point is that the participating stores haven’t been announced. However, Best Buy and Wal-Mart are very likely since NEW Customer Service already sells warranties through them.
Quote:
Postage and shipping for the items returned would be covered by ecoNEW resulting in no cost to the owner for the return. With the ecoNEW service, the customer would fill out a return online describing what items they have and the condition of the items and ecoNEW would provide an estimate on how much they are worth and free shipping to return them. An example return rate is about $20 to $60 for an MP3 player depending on the model.

This is freaking awesome, I just bought a zune, which I had to buy from best buy just so I could get an extended warranty, and I could just walk it in and what not. But with this program, I could have found it for the cheapest price available and then get a warranty at a local place.

interesting... I bet you could get more money back if you sold it on eBay, depending on the age of the device.

good find none the less
