If you have a lot of old CDs lying around, pack them up and ship them out for free and then get a new iPod, iPhone, or even an iPad in return! It may sound too good to be true, but this is the real deal.

It's compliments of

It'll take most CDs in good condition, but you have to have the original cardboard sleeve or the original jewel case and front and back album cover inserts.

And you do have to collect a lot of CDs o get an i-product in return.

For instance, for 220 discs, you'll get an 8-gigabyte iPod Nano. For 330 discs, you'll get a 16-gigabyte iPhone 3GS. And for 600 discs, you can get a 16 gigabyte iPad with Wifi!

iPodMeister is a company based in New York and started by a group of artists and students.

Apparently, while you can't get a lot for used CDs in the US, you can abroad! So iPodMeister collects CDs or DVDs here and then sells them in other countries for a pretty good profit.

Shipping the discs to iPodMeister is free and for more CDs, the company will even digitize your music for you and send it back to you on a disc.

iPodMeister says turnaround time is usually 2 to 4 days from the time the company gets your discs.
