We all love our gadgets. Part of that passion can lead to a lot of waste which is not only a strain on your bottom line, but it is also a major environmental threat. Many of you may not realize this, but your two year old cell phone or tablet still has potential value. But it holds no value in the trash or in a drawer. The key though is you need to sell your device.
Many of you probably have used Craiglist.com. It is a great and free option for buying and selling used items, but it can be hit or miss when it comes to scams. Most people avoid Craigslist altogether because of the dangers associated with it. ebay is another great option for reselling and buying, but you don’t know what you’re always getting until you get it in hand.
One great option that I have used to sell old devices is Gazelle.com. They don’t quite accept as many electronic devices as they used to, but they still take iOS and Samsung devices.
Gazelle operates similarly to a car dealership where they will buy consumer used goods, inspect them, and then resell them.
Sites like Gazelle.com do not always offer the best price you can get, but they offer security and safety. You will not be scammed by Gazelle. They have paid out more than $200M since they started in 2008, and continue to help customers recycle their used but still good devices.
Used mobile devices make a lot of sense to buy as a primary device. Gazelle does a 30-point inspection on all of its devices before it resells them. With that inspection comes a 30-day risk-free guarantee that protects the buyer from buying a piece of junk. Gazelle is well trusted and established so it has a user base that can speak to its quality.That means if you’re looking to save money, consider going through Gazelle for a contract free device. Don’t get locked into payment plans on a device with a high depreciation rate.
So if you’re looking to save money, or if you want to make money on devices you no longer use, check out Gazelle.com to learn more.
