Circuit City Accepting Trade-Ins on HD-DVD Players

If you bought an HD-DVD player from Circuit City within the last 90 days and are feeling burned by the format's downward spiral into oblivion since then, you're in luck.

The electronics retailer is in the midst of an unannounced, unadvertised trade-in program for customers who purchased an HD-DVD player from one of their stores during the last 3 months. If you meet that criteria, you can't return the now obsolete unit for a cash/credit card refund, but they will allow you to apply the full purchase price towards any Blu-ray player, including the PlayStation 3. If you really don't want to jump into Blu-ray just yet, they will refund the money in the form of a Circuit City gift card. Not a bad deal all around.

Please note that Circuit City requires the player be returned in the original box with all included accessories as well, so keep that in mind before you go skipping off down to your local store with your player tucked under your arm, power cord trailing behind you.
