The idea of purchasing electronics automatically sounds less than eco-friendly. In general, when we're talking about televisions, dvd players and mp3 players, there's a good chance that technology will out-date itself before you get a chance to really put it to use. That's why Best Buy offers to buy back your old tech.

I always have a great moral decision to make when it comes to buying tech. Do I buy what's hot and hip or purchase something that I know will last me a lifetime (or at least a few years)? I don't always want to re-buy my pieces, but I don't want to be out of date either.

Best Buy heard the pleas of its consumers and started a new program to buy back your old tech. Think of it as leasing your TV. The longer you hang on to the piece of equipment, the less worth it will have for a trade-in. (But on the flip side, the happier you'll be that you found a product that works well!) I hope this Buy Back program also produce a series of gently used electronics that can be resold.

Check out all the details over at Best Buy including a bit from Justin Bieber and Ozzy (which is a sentence I never... ever thought I'd say) to tell you all about it.
