Per the conversation I had with corporate, all they need to do is enter the recycle screen and enter any type of storage device. Once that info is added the coupon should automatically pop up. If it doesn’t the manager can override.

On the recycling panel - they need to select cordless phone for the deal to show up. Also have them print it since the email version doesn’t include the code
08-17-2021 at 10:25 AM
Yup. The icon looks like a phone (I think they all do), so it's a bit of a hassle for them to find it. It was the last one in the list for my rep.
08-17-2021 at 02:28 PM
You want them to select "CE Other" (consumer electronics other) and it will appear there. The icon is of a cordless (not cellular) landline phone. The WD option will be right there. Works on sale items too!

I used it last night on the 14TB WD Mybook external drive that is on sale without issue.

Pretty much anything. I recycled the shucked cases of previous WD eHDs. There weren't any actual drives in them. Otherwise, I guess you could find a small/old/dead USB/HDD/SSD you have lying around to recycle.

Thought I'd add my experience:

I spent >30mins at my local BB - short(ish) version, in no particular order:

1. This doesn't show up in their internal ("Blue" something?) site under any kind of trade-in promo.
2. No one (right up to the Mgr) at the store knew anything about this.
3. This does show up under the Recycling take-ins page.
4. As indicated by others on this thread, it shows up under a cordless phone recycling take-in.
5. Even though the text of the promo itself states "storage device," the person helping me initially insisted that I therefore needed to turn in a cordless phone (she wasn't clear on whether it was in addition-to or in-lieu-of a storage device).
6. After further consultation with yet-more in-store personnel, they agreed that it simply meant a storage device, sans cordless phone.
7. Nobody knows why it's under a cordless phone recycling take-in.
8. They had to fill out a form for law enforcement indicating how my storage device being recycled was obtained, from where, approx when, and agreeing that I will not get it back.
9. I dunno if item 8 applies everywhere or was just a quirk where I live.
10. I had 4 "storage devices" with me and asked the intake person to choose which one they want to take (2x flash cards, 2x USB sticks).
11. They didn't seem to care which they take, which implies that flash cards are/were acceptable, at least at my location.
12. Everything above will likely need to be run through all over again each time someone else tries this.
13. The printed coupon does indeed state "SINGLE USE. In store only" and "Offer valid 8/8/2021 - 1/29/2023"
14. I did try the UPC string as an online code and it wasn't accepted (was worth a try)

Hope that helps someone!
A brief anecdote from my experience trying this out today in-store:
I took a 4GB SD card to customer service, and after some messing around, they were able to get me a 15% coupon.

I grabbed a WD_BLACK SN750 1TB, on sale for $119.99. This is basically the lowest price from a regular retailer that I've seen. The kind employee that checked me out was a Supervisor, and the 15% coupon wouldn't scan. She did a manual override, because "you seem to know more about this than I do" Smilie Very friendly, got my discount and good to go.
Please do not dispose of old electronics this way. Many towns have e-recycling options for free/cheap. This is very bad for your local community (water specifically) if you let it go to standard trash due to the many chemicals in electronics.

Monitors, in particular, contain lead (lbs of it for CRT) or mercury (LCD). https://earth911.com/recycling-guide/how-to-recycle-computer-monitors/

Trade in old cheap memory card/stick
Get coupon
Use when WD external shuckable drives go on annual clearance, assuming coupon is accepted

Seems like a decent deal

I just talked with customer service, and they said all WD and Sandisk items are eligible to apply the 15% coupon to. But initially got some conflicting information.

I think someone needs to try this in store to get some solid info. Imma head in later today.

If anyone gets the coupon, let us know if it also has an online discount code or not. Guessing it's in-store only though.

Our community has rated this post as helpful. If you agree, why not thank ?

Quote from slickdealrocker :
15% is not slick at all. Slick is 50%
What makes this potentially slick/valuable is buying a Clearance storage item at Best Buy and using this extra 15% coupon on top. (If allowed)

Otherwise, as you mentioned, 15% off at Best Buy on storage is not slick.
