This post is one big affiliate link. I don’t usually do those, but this one came to my attention and I wanted to share since it’s something I personally needed!
I’m in the market for a new iPhone. Honestly, I assumed once I hit my “eligible for upgrade” moment, I’d march right into the store and do the deal.
I did march right in, but I left with my own phone. My own old phone.
And now it’s four months later and my oldest just commented that he never thought I’d be like Dad and dillydally on getting a new phone.
Why didn’t I go for it?
The phone store offered me a measly $21 for my phone. My husband got WAY more than that for his older, less-awesome phone just a few months earlier, so I was a bit ticked.
I’ve since gone in and been given a similar offer. According to the people in the store, there is no way other than walking into the store to find out when they do the bigger offer specials.
I’m a busy lady and I have no interest in walking in time and time again, only to get re-irritated.
So when this particular affiliate offer came to my attention, I looked into it. Through USell I was offered $63 for the phone I need to sell. That’s 25 cents less than Amazon’s Trade In Program offered, but with Amazon you’re getting Amazon credit rather than cash.
So now I’m motivated to get a new phone since I feel more confident I’ll be able to sell my old one for a better price.
I looked at the terms of service and saw that while a buyer (USell matches you with a buyer) can decide your phone isn’t in the condition you said it was in and make a new offer, you can refuse that offer and they’ll send back your phone with no shipping charges. (They send you a pre-paid shipping package to use when you send the phone in the first time.)
I love easy ways to declutter AND make cash, so this is definitely looking into!
If you don’t care about getting money for your old phones, check with local schools and ministries. They often collect old phones.
Yes. I’m saying it again. The links in this post are affiliate links.
