Adam Barringer graduated from USC last May and enjoys spending his free time in front of his High Definition television.

"In the morning I guess I watch some sports center to get my news from it," said Adam.

Adam has a Play Station 3 and a new lap top computer. He also records shows through out the day on a DVR to watch later.

"We do a lot of DVR ing so we can skip through commercials later in the night," Barringer said.

USC Student Government Senator Matt Orr also likes to have the latest and greatest electronics as well. Matt used to own a Black Berry but is now the proud owner of the new I phone 4 and says its everything he could ever ask for.

"It's the best technology out there and it's a good phone to have," said Orr.

Best Buy is helping people keep up with the latest trends in electronics buy offering a new buy back program that includes televisions, laptop computers, and cellular phones. Sales associate Richard Rooney says the program is a way for customers to make sure they can always have the latest product.

Customers have to purchase the program when they buy the product. Best Buy on Harbison Blvd. is offering people who buy cell phones the buy back program for free.

"When it comes to cell phones it is a definite to buy because if you have a two year contract, your going to upgrade within those two years you mind as well get some money back for what you upgrade for," said Rooney.

A customer can receive up to half off the price of a new piece of electronic equipment within the first six months if they trade in their original purchase. The program discount drops ten percent a month after the sixth month. 

"The future proofing of this program allows customers to come back in and always make sure they have the latest and greatest they're never falling behind," Rooney said.

So far the Best Buy on Harbison has only seen four customers purchase TV's with the buy back program.
