(NBC) - Who doesn't have an old cell phone in a drawer somewhere?

That phone may be worth a few bucks as more and more retailers are swapping old electronics for money.

Target is joining such retailers as Best Buy, Walmart and Radio Shack in swapping store credit for old electronics.

Target's program is limited to cell phones, iPods and video games. The retailer appraises the value of your item and you choose whether to swap it or not.

A 3G iPhone with 16GB will pay up to $105, while a Blackberry Curve 8300 will only earn around $20.

The items do not have to be purchased from Target but the money is paid out on a Target gift card.

A manager for Target says the store either refurbishes and resells the electronics or recycles them.
