Save $69.99 on Best Buy’s Buy Back program for smart phones and tablets – it’s free through February 26, 2011, says our student writer Joshua…

While I’m not slaving away in a classroom, I spend most of my time working at Best Buy where I happened to stumble upon an impressive deal. Best Buy is offering their Buy Back program free to customers who purchase a smart phone or tablet , including the Apple iPad, until February 26.

Who hasn’t purchased a technological device, only to find that you’re tired of it after 6 months? Or discovered that you want to trade it up for the latest new gadget instead ?  The Buy Back program allows you to sell your technology back to Best Buy for up to 24 months. The plan normally costs $69.99, so if you’re shopping now for a new phone or a tablet, it’s worth checking out the freebie, available till February 26.

Best Buy offers a depreciated value for your technology. They will give you up to:

  • 50% of the purchase price if you sell it back in the first 6 months
  • 40% in the first year
  • 30% up to 18 months
  • 20% for up to two years.

For example, if you purchase an iPhone for $200, and decide within six months that you no longer want it, Best Buy will buy it back for $100.  The payment is in the form of a Best Buy gift card, and the device has to include all original parts, and be in good working order.

The Best Buy Buy Back free offer on phones is at all Best Buy stores, and although the deal details say the offer on tablets is only at Best Buy Mobile standalone stores (and there are no stand-alone stores in New Mexico), the Albuquerque Best Buy store at 55 Hotel Circle NE is definitely running the tablet offer too.

We’re in love with our houses. But that doesn’t mean we don’t want to rip down walls, repaint, install bathroom spas, and overhaul our kitchens. Yes, remodeling is America’s obsession.

That’s why the Home Builders and Remodelers Showcase at EXPO New Mexico is the largest home show in New Mexico and one of the biggest such events in the entire southwest. Hundreds of exhibitors will be showing off the latest products and technologies for home building, remodeling, design, and decorating. Admission is $5 for adults, but we found a buy-one-get-one-free coupon. Kids 12 and under get in free!

The Home Builders and Remodelers Showcase takes place Saturday, March 28, from 10:00am to 6:00pm and Sunday, March 29, from 10:00am to 5:00pm at EXPO New Mexico (formerly the state fairgrounds). We’re guessing it’s in the Manuel Lujan Building, though the website doesn’t specify. Also note that a parking fee may apply.
