How To Make Money By Selling Your Old iPhone

September 14, 2015 by Rachel Gulmi

If you haven’t heard by now, Apple announced the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus, which means a lot of people are going to want it. However, there are those annoying things called contracts that get in the way of getting this new iPhone at a decent price. Don’t get me wrong, if you need the iPhone 6S and want to break your contract and pay full price, by all means, go for it.

Let’s be serious, though. Apple products are quite expensive and they do work for a long period of time, so I’m sure the phone you’re so eager to get rid of works perfectly fine. The want for needing the best and newest products always seem to get the best of us. Fortunately, if your contract isn’t up and you want to upgrade to the iPhone 6S or 6S Plus, you have the option of trading in your phone or selling it to the highest bidder.

Here are a couple ways you can get money for your “old” iPhone:

1. Sell it for cold hard cash. This is probably the easiest way to get money for your old phone. You don’t have to deal with an outside source and you know you’re dealing with a real person. Simply place a flyer in your office or post it on Facebook. Since you’re meeting with a person, there’s no need to pay for shipping costs. Bonus: you get to keep 100% of the profit.

If you don’t get any takers with this selling option then move on to the next one.

2. Trade-in programs. There are a lot of trade-in websites out there so it’s just a matter of finding one that you like. Check out this super quick breakdown of the three most popular sites.

Gazelle: Answer a few questions about the condition of your phone and they will give you an offer, which is valid for 30 days. Gazelle will send a prepaid shipping label and a box for qualified orders. You can choose to be paid with a check or through PayPal or an Amazon gift card.

NextWorthOnce you get a quote on your old phone, simply send it in with a prepaid shipping label provided by NextWorth. They even offer free insurance on the products you send in! You can get paid with a check, through PayPal, a NextWorth Discover prepaid card or a Target gift card.

iCrackedOnce you select what device you want to sell, you connect with a local iTech. You then meet up with your iTech to sell your phone and then if it’s all good, you exchange your unwanted phone for a prepaid debit card. You can also choose to mail it in and be paid through a check or PayPal. Offers are locked in for 30 days.

Don’t miss your chance to win a free $50 Visa gift card and this is every beauty bloggers secret to taking a good selfie!
