Amazon Wants To Buy Your Abandoned Gadgets

Leaping into a crowded online electronic device trade-in field populated by the likes of Walmart, eBay and Best Buy, Amazon announced it’s expanding its own pawn shop-like program, which previously was restricted to DVDs, Blu-rays, video games and textbooks.

In a press release relayed by Engadget, Amazon says it’s looking for 2,550 (and counting) gadgets it will accept via prepaid print-out shipping labels in exchange for a low-ball gift card.

If you sell off old gadgets, where do you go to get the most value?
