I'd never heard of this before. Seems like a pretty neat concept. Do they pay fair prices?

if it sounds too good to be true....hmmmm....

It's a recycling service. Just as if they were asking for pop cans. They buy the item from you at less than the scrap price, and eveybody, including the environment, wins. Until you need that laptop your junkie roommate sold for smack.

Why does this seem more like 'spam' than a post about a good deal?
hmmmmm....

@woshisb: I guess deal.woot works TOO well!

It's cash4gold for electronics. Meaning they pay you a small fraction of market value for anything that's actually worth anything. You have a laptop with a busted screen? they'll give you $20 for it and then sell it off for $100. (Figures are fictional but represent actual cash4gold profit margin.)

Just for kicks, I thought I'd see what I could get for my PS2. Up to $10.00!! Eh, nevermind. I think I'll keep it.

$165 for a Wii and $90 for a Xbox 360...interesting.

this is probably a spam. They've been around for a long while and they are just promoting their site here.

i've used cash4laptops.com

now theoretically they quoted me 120, but when they called in, i got bargained down to 60.00. that being said, it was a 3 year old laptop, on its last leg. i was happy getting 60 bucks and not having to deal with ebay and all the other BS.

i'm commenting this, because i'm saying in essence, this is the same thing, if you don't care or don't want to ebay, use one of these sites and call it a day.

I don't like this. It sounds like cash4gold or the goldkit or any of those other things except with electronics. Also all the lazy people with cheap, easy to hack electronics will just sell it on this tradeups thing, cutting out a huge amount of old, cheap, hackable electronics.
