Recycle your electronics at Amazon's new online Electronics Trade-In Store

Recently, the online retailer launched their Electronics Trade-In Store that accepts an array of electronic devices from customers — cell phones, iPhones, digital cameras, GPS devices and even graphing calculators — and compensates them through their Amazon accounts according to the trade-in values of the products being turned in.

They'll even give users a pre-paid shipping label to use and multiple devices can be shipped in the same box at no extra cost.

But don't think you can get away with turning in a damaged or completely broken gadget: All products must be in "Like New," "Good" or "Acceptable" condition. So if your old cell phone is completely unusable, save it for the electronics recycling center.
