MINNEAPOLIS — Customers can save on back-to-school shopping by trading in used electronics and video games for store credit, Target said.
The mass merchandiser said it expanded its Electronics Trade-In service to 1,490 stores with Target Mobile centers, and also added new product categories. The chain offers the program under a partnership with consumer electronics upgrade and trade-in company NextWorth, giving customers credit in return. The service is accepting calculators, DVDs, video games, Nintendo DS units, cell phones, iPods and iPads.
"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," Target VP merchandising Nik Nayar said. "Our service is budget-friendly and it gets Target's guests involved with reducing e-waste."
