Beginning October 17 through October 23, bring up to three used but still-functional iPods to Toys R Us and the store will make you an offer up to $100 for trading it in. CNN has the deets: "The store will make an offer for each music player, depending on the age and model. Customers receive an iPod "trade-up" card loaded with the total dollar amount of their trade-ins, and the card can be used to buy a new device. The program won't be available in all Toys "R" Us stores, so shoppers should check with their local outlets." [CNN]
