Swap your electronics and get gift cards in return. This article from WGRZ News in Buffalo, NY, an NBC affiliate lists various websites that allow you to trade your electronics for cash or gift cards. I have selected the portions of the article that talk about swapping electronics for gift cards. Here they are:
