As the launch date for a new iPhone gets closer, the value of old iPhones tends to depreciate rather quickly. To help consumers get the best value, Gazelle, the nation’s leading consumer electronics trade-in site, announced the extension of its industry-leading 30-day price lock guarantee to up to 50 days for orders placed before September 10th. With this extended price lock, consumers can get today’s trade-in price for their old or unwanted iPhone, and hold onto their device until after the new iPhone is in hand. Consumers who lock in an offer between today and September 10th will have until October 15th to send their old iPhones to Gazelle. Current pricing for the iPhone 5 ranges between $125 for a broken phone and to $350 for a phone in flawless condition.
One of the great ways to make a bit of extra cash is to sell your old gadgets. If you are like me, you likely have several old outdated mobile phones laying around. I tend to upgrade my phone at least every year or two. Most of these phones are in great condition. I’ve re-used my old iphones simply as ipods or let my kids play with them. But I know that these items can be worth a good amount of money on the resell market. I have friends who sell these old items on ebay, but sometimes I don’t want to go through the hassle. But I found Gazelle, and really enjoyed their service.
I’ve used Gazelle in the past and they are a great hassle free way to sell old electronics. You simply head over to their website and select your electronic device that you wish to sell. Then you simply describe the condition of your item and they will quote you a price. Shipping is free and you can even have them send you as box in some cases.
The rumors of the new Apple iPhone are heating up and the event is just around the corner. A great way to upgrade your iPhone without spending a lot of cash out of pocket is to sell your old iPhone to fund the purchase for the upgrade. Gazelle will lock in your price today for your old iPhone so that you can hold onto your old iphone while you wait. This way, you can make sure that you get the current prices for your old iPhone even after the launch.
This is one of the best all around deals. And while you are there, you can check out the prices for some of your other old electronics. You may be surprised what your old electronics are worth.
