Remember those leaked docs about Best Buy's buy back program? Well now the service is live and is fundamentally the same as expected. They'll buy back your devices (in the form of store credit) for a percentage of the orignal price based on how long ago your purchased it. The only downside is that they charge you a fee up front to have the privilege of this service, calling it "buy back protection" (they say the fee for laptops, netbooks and tablets will be $70).
Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service.
