Tweeter Home Entertainment Group
announced Wednesday a trade-in program for iPod owners. Using NextWorth’s “iPod Calculator,” Tweeter associates can offer customers a credit towards the purchase of a new iPod or any other product available from Tweeter.
Tweeter is a national electronics retailer specializing in home and mobile entertainment products. The trade in program is offered at all of the company’s 153 stores nationwide. Tweeter claims to be the first US-based retail chain to offer an in-store iPod trade-in program.
NextWorth already offers iPod trade-ins on
its Web site
but the Tweeter program is designed to provide a “brick and mortar” alternative. And Tweeter will accept a customer’s iPod in just about any condition, according to Tweeter VP Jonathan Magasanik. Obviously, the trade-in credit value varies depending on the condition of the iPod.
