With new versions of smartphones, e-readers and tablets coming out all the time, you probably have at least one outdated electronic device or appliance you want to replace.

"The longer you hold onto something like a computer, VCR, something like that, they go down in value. So if you don't think you are going to use it, you should probably sell it before it loses any more of its value," says LaPedis.

Sites such as Gazelle.com and YouRenew.com pay cash for your electronics and offer trade-ins and free recycling. While it costs $39.99 to $299.99, depending on the device, to buy into Best Buy's new Buy Back Program, the nationwide electronics retailer also has select stores that let you trade in certain electronics and musical instruments for a store gift card or check of lesser value, and also provide free electronic recycling services. You can check the estimated value of your electronic item on the chain's website.
