NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Want to upgrade to a better iPod without shelling out too much cash? Toys "R" Us will offer customers up to $100 for each old iPod that they bring into stores, the company said Thursday.

Shoppers can then put those funds toward the purchase of a new iPod or iPod Touch.

The trade-in program is only available for one week, starting Sunday, Oct. 17 and running trough Saturday, Oct. 23.

Customers can bring in up to three of their previously used but still working iPods to a Toys "R" Us service desk, and the store will make an offer for each music player, depending on the age and model.

Customers receive an iPod "trade-up" card loaded with the total dollar amount of their trade-ins, and the card can be used to buy a new device.

The program won't be available in all Toys "R" Us stores, so shoppers should check with their local outlets. Apple (AAPL, Fortune 500) is not a participant in or sponsor of the promotion, and the deal is not available online.  To top of page
