What was worth months ago becomes an obsolete technology as with Ipod upgrades every fall. I hate to bring bad news, but there is no trade-in program that apple offers to recycle your old gadget for cash. However that doesn't mean that other companies offer that same service for apple Ipods. Let me give you the information you need of those online service trade for old gadgets.

Apple has a 10% discount if you brought in your old iPod. If you wanted to get a little bit of $$ off it, you can sell it online. Luckily Apple offers this, otherwise people's iPods would start multiplying by the dozens, considering how fast technology updates nowadays. That is the only discount I have ever heard of as of now.
I hope that this helped.MacBook 250 GB, Mac OS X (10.6.3), 2010 brand new
