Minneapolis - Target has expanded its CE trade-in service to 1,490 stores, and is accepting additional categories.
The service, provided in partnership with Boston-based CE exchange and recycling service NextWorth, will now be offered in all stores with Target Mobile centers.
The trade-in program now also accepts pre-owned calculators and DVDs, in addition to iPods, iPads, iPhones, cellphones, Nintendo DS units and video games.
"The expansion of Target's Electronics Trade-in service comes at a time when parents are really looking to save on back-to-school purchases," said Target merchandising VP Nik Nayar. "Our service is budget-friendly and it gets Target's guests involved with reducing e-waste."
Products are evaluated on-site, and values are determined based on the model and condition of the item. Customers then receive a prepaid card for the value of the trade to put toward their next Target purchase. Items can also be exchanged online at
, where customers have the choice of cash or a gift card for their trade-in.
