eBay's Electronics Recycling "Instant Sale"
December 2, 2010
The latest initiative from online auction giant eBay is the eBay Instant Sale
, an innovative program to help users dispose of their old electronics in the greenest way possible (and make a buck, too!). program aimed at helping eBay users get rid of their old electronics in an environmentally responsible way, and make money in the process. The next time you're due for a cell phone upgrade, you can visit the Instant Sale, plug in your old gadget's specs, and receive an instant cash offer for your to-be-replaced phone, iPod, etc. If you accept the cash offer, eBay generates a free shipping label to send off your old gadget, and the cash shows up in your PayPal account about a week later. So, if you're a little short on cash this holiday season, why not rummage through your old drawer of electronics and send them off to be recycled (eBay sends gadgets to a recycling plant to be disassembled and reused), and enjoy the extra bucks.
