Top 5 Websites To Sell Your Old iPhone For the Most Money

Top 5 Websites To Sell Your Old iPhone For the Most Money

Whether you want to sell your old iPhone, or buy a used iPhone to save money instead of buying one that is brand new, you will need to shop around until you find the sites that offer the best deals. After all, if you are selling, you want to get the most money possible, and if you are buying, you want to get the best savings. Here are the top five websites where you can sell and buy older iPhones and make or save money.

1. Craigslist



    You can buy and sell old iPhones for anywhere from $70 to $800, depending on the age and condition of the phone. The only problem with Craigslist is that you need to be careful about who you are dealing with, because no one is screened. Completing the deal in a public place is always recommended for your safety. Craigslist is free and easy to use. All you have to do is post your ad with all of the pertinent information (including contact information) and photos of the item. You can get great deals if you are looking to buy an older phone, and you can often get top dollar when you are selling an iPhone.

    2. Sell My iPhone

      Sell your old iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5 or iPhone 5C quickly and easily at this website. You will receive accurate quotes, and after the phone is delivered to Gadget Salvation, you will receive payment within a day or two. Simply send in the phone (for free), and an inspection will be performed. Within 48 hours, you will receive confirmation about the sale, and the payment will be issued.

      3. Amazon



        One of the best options is the Trade-In program from Amazon. No matter what the age of your iPhone is, you are going to make some money. All you have to do is a short Q&A on the type of phone you have, your carrier (if you have one), the condition, and if there are any accessories included. Then, you will get a flat rate from Amazon in the form of an Amazon gift card. It doesn’t get much simpler than that, and you can redeem the gift card for other items, including putting it toward a new iPhone. Another option is to act as an individual seller, but there is a bit more work involved because you will need to set up an account. But, you can choose your own selling price. When the item sells, you will have the money in your account within two to three weeks.

        4. Best Buy

          Earn anywhere from $5 to $310 for your old iPhone (depending on the model, condition, and accessories included) when you sell it to Best Buy. You can go online and get an estimate for what the company will pay for your iPhone. Then, simply print out the estimate and take it to a participating store in your area. You will receive a Best Buy gift certificate, which you can use towards the purchase of a new iPhone. Keep in mind that they do not take original iPhones.

          5. Walmart


            You can earn pretty much the same here as you can from Best Buy when you sell your old iPhone, and you can get great deals on newer models. Go online to get a quote for the device (you will need to let them know what condition it is in). Then, mail the phone in and receive a Walmart gift card for up to $300, depending on the phone and its condition. Models as old as the iPhone 3GS are being accepted (these only go for $5.50, but it’s better than nothing).

            11 Brain Training Apps to Train Your Mind and Improve Memory

            Whether at work or at school, people these days are under tremendous pressure to perform, perform and perform! Stress and pressure can have adverse affects on the well-being of a person, and need to be controlled.

            Now, this doesn’t mean you make a dash to your nearest therapist. There are a number of wonderful and smart apps that you can use on your phone. These brain training apps have been scientifically designed to target specific areas of the human mind and control harmful emotions such as anxiety, as well as to improve memory and sharpness of the brain.

            Here are 11 iPhone apps that you will not only enjoy but also find useful in keeping your mental health balanced at all times.

            1. Lumosity

            This app consists of games that focus on improving the user’s memory, problem-solving capability, attention span, and thinking. There are three games in each session, and they challenge the brain by changing every time. The user has to complete the games while playing against a clock.

            Free of trial. $15 per month for the full version.

              2. Fit Brains Trainer

              This brain training app has 10 sets of games that work on different areas of the brain and improve memory as well as concentration. A user is required to finish a particular task from each category on a daily basis and the app tracks the progress by a color coded graph.

                3. CogniFit Brain Fitness

                Developed with the help of neuroscientists, this fun app improves a person’s cognitive abilities, which includes memory and concentration. The progress made by the user over a period of time can be tracked. Users can also play challenge rounds with their friends. The app also modifies the difficulty level to suit the profile of the user and provide recommendations based on the results. Spending 20–30 minutes a few times every week can give measurable improvement in the performance of a user.

                First four games free, then $13 a month.

                  5. Happify

                  If nothing else makes you happy in life, this app will. Well, this is what the developers claim at least. This app comes loaded with lots of quizzes, polls and gratitude journals, which work on the fundamentals of positive psychology. The app also helps to control stress and emotions to make you feel better.

                  Free to use.

                    6. Clockwork Brain

                    You will like the little gold robot that comes in every time to explain the next game you are going to play. While the games are not much different to those offered in apps such as Luminosity, the look and feel reminds me of a workshop from old times.

                      7. ReliefLink

                      Initially created as an app for suicide prevention, it has found its use as a great app for tracking the mood of the user by taking measure of all things relevant to the user’s mental health. In case the user experiences high emotional stress, the app has a coping mechanism that includes voice-recorded mindfulness, exercises and music for relaxation. There is also a map that informs the user of the nearest therapist and medical facilities for mental health treatment.

                        Eidetic is a memory enhancement app and uses a ‘spaced repetition’ technique to help users memorize information such as important phone numbers, words, credit card details or passwords. It also notifies you when it’s time to take a test to see what you remember, so that you retain information in your long-term memory.

                          Braingle helps to maintain the sharpness of the brain and improve the reasoning ability of a person through riddles and optical illusions. It is different from other brain training apps that employ memory and reaction based tests. You can also compete with your friends and family members in figuring out the fun riddles.
