Want a new toy but you've still got the old one?

Here's an easy way to rid yourself of this thorny dilemma.

You can trade in your old electronic gizmos at 1,470 participating Target stores, through a program run by Nextworth recycling company.

Target is one of the retail stores that's participating in this program, check the website,, for others you can visit.

Just bring in your electronic device to the Target Mobile kiosk and a clerk will value it for you and tell you how much it's worth. You can also mail it in, if you don't have a store nearby. They'll give you a gift card or store credit on the spot.

They accept items such as iPhones, iPads, digital cameras, game consoles, e-readers, laptops, movies, video games and more.
