Trade in that old iPod for a new one, or a little cash


I just learned about Target's trade in program for new and used iPods, iPhones, cameras, DVDs, and other electronic devices. With a few clicks you can check if your aging gadget and movies are worth anything.

When I typed in "ipod" there were 117 options. The program even accepts first generation scroll wheel iPods.

To determine the value of my extremely old and scratched 20GB iPod from the early 00s, the site asked me for the gadget's overall condition, four questions about functionality, and if I had any accessories. It's net value? $23.80.

I think I'll keep using my outdated device another few years, thank you very much. On the other hand, my new iPhone has plenty of music storage so there's no real reason I need to keep my old iPod on hand.
