The Target trade-in program is available in stores and online.

Take advantage of the Target tech trade-in option and trade in your used electronic items in stores or online. Visit TradeIn.Target.com or head to the electronics department at select Target locations to get started with your trade-in. To find out if your store participates in the Target Trade-in program, ask your customer service desk or electronic department.

If trading online, select your item from a list and answer a few questions about it, and Target will estimate the amount of your gift card. The amount can vary from day to day. If you accept the trade-in quote, you’ll receive an email that includes a printable prepaid USPS shipping label and instructions for the shipment.

If trading in the store, double-check with customer service as to where to go. At my store, the Target trade-in area is located in the electronics department. From there, the employee will evaluate your item and give you your estimate.

Assurant handles all of Target’s trade-ins. Once your device is received and processed at Assurant’s facility, a Target eGift card will be delivered within seven business days to the email address entered when the quote was created.

Use the Target tech trade-in for your old electronics. Target trade-in accepts mobile phones, tablets, wearables, MP3 players, video games and consoles, and smart speakers. This also includes Apple devices such as iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches.

Other retailers often offer more for trading in tech.

Be sure to compare values for your trade-in. Between Target, Amazon, and Best Buy, there isn’t a retailer that stands out over the rest. Keep an eye out for trade-in promotions from Amazon. They tend to give an extra 25% off on future Amazon brand items when you trade in an old device.
