Yesterday we reported about the US Postal Services new "Mail Back" service
, which allows people to rid themselves of small electronics. This is great for non-working items you know you can't sell or giveaway. But what if you're just upgrading and want a little money to fund that new iPod Touch or PSP? Second Rotation wants to pay you for your hand me downs...

The three step process has you first logging into the Second Rotation site
, adding your list of items to sell and calculating their worth (this is like going to Amoeba Records, for those who sell their music/DVDs, without the line!). Afterwards, you mail out your items at Second Rotation's expense with a UPS mailing label printed from your own printer, and then upon receipt and verification, they send you a check. It's a nice way to do some spring cleaning, earn a little cash (our sad 5GB original iPod earned us a paltry $16 in fair condition), and keep some items out of landfills.
