Best Buy’s newly released gadget trade-in service seems like a great idea on the surface, but when you take a closer look, it’s actually a horrible deal for consumers. The way the service works is Best Buy will charge you a fee to use the service, normally $39.99 for devices less than $350 and $59 for more than that. Not only is that an incredibly expensive plan, but it only covers devices purchased at Best Buy Stores.
