The release of the new iPhone has everyone excited, or at least iPhone users. Perhaps you want to know your options when it comes to selling your old iPhone for cash. You may also want to sell an old MacBook, sell your Mac computers, or sell an iMac for cash. You may even have a MacBook Pro for sale. Those are topics for other blogs, however. This blog focuses on options for selling your old iPhone to buy a new iPhone. What are your options?
The first option involves selling your old iPhone to a buy-back service. There are many buy-back services available, and it can be a daunting task to go through many such services. Flipsy can save you a significant amount of time. Flipsy compares U.S. trade-in values at multiple buy-back companies. It shows payment methods, price lock time length, and price based on the phone’s condition. Another price comparison service is SellCell.
The second option is to trade your iPhone in for credit for a new iPhone. You can go to the place you purchased your iPhone, and the two most common sources of new iPhones are Apple and Best Buy. Apple’s iPhone Trade-In Program provides Apple Store credit. Apple’s prices for used iPhones are competitive with many other trade-in services, but Apple does not differentiate between phones with different storage capacities. Best Buy trade-in rates are also competitive. Trading in your phone at Best Buy gives you a Best Buy gift card, which of course, only works at Best Buy.
The third option requires you to sell your phone yourself on a site such as eBay, Craigslist, or Facebook Marketplace. If you use Craigslist or other in-person selling options, make sure you meet your buyer in a well-lit, public place. Facebook Marketplace does not charge fees and is safer than Craigslist. The safest place for sellers and buyers is eBay, but eBay charges fees.
