No links. It's in-store here. Not sure if all of them do it, but ours does Wed-Sun, 12-6.

They look up sold prices on ebay and make an offer based on an average of recent auctions. Roughly 50% of ebay price, on average.

You have to make sure your devices are charged up and still attached to your account, so they can check for operation and test speakers, web access, etc. You only need a book or two on it (and I'd suggest one audio file, if your device supports that), so they can test it.

MAKE SURE YOU DO A RESET after they decide to purchase and before they pack them away.

I was told these are shipped off, along with hardcover and paperbacks they are buying back, to their new "used" bookstores (we don't have one of those in our market, as we have a huge used bookstore that is very successful ... and that pays less than BAM is offering - they offer closer to 25% of what they think they can sell it for, sometimes less if in cash).
