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 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

            11 Google Chrome Apps and Features to Help You Get More Done with Less Effort

            In today’s fast-paced and never-ending busy world, we are overwhelmed by tasks that need to be completed by tight deadlines. With so much technology it is difficult to find the right tools to help boost our efficiency. And, many tools get obsolete so its essential to stay up-to-date to know when you will have to make adjustments to these tools. Independently of where you work, there’s a good chance that you have to be working on a PC or a laptop.

            Do you are feel like you do not have enough time, or cannot accomplish much as of late? It is recommended to take a step back and look at the big picture. Also, you want to explore new and innovative ways to improve productivity.

            In this article, I outline 11 features and apps within the Chrome browser that can help you do just that.

            Minimizing Tabs

            Let’s face it we all have more than a dozen tabs opened on our computers. One neat trick to still keep most of them open is to turn them into pinned tabs. On Google Chrome you can right-click the tab and select “Pin Tab” option. This turns the tab into an icon enabling you to continue multitasking.

            Pinning a tab anchors the tabs on the left of your toolbar; a great benefit of the “Pin Tab” feature is that you can’t close these tabs accidentally since the “X” disappears after pinning them.

            Incognito Mode

            Google Chrome is a very easy-to-use and intuitive. But, Google does collect our browsing data; so to remedy this, you can use Incognito Mode. This feature does not keep your browsing or download history. You can enable or access it in three different ways:


            1. Press Ctrl/Command+shift+N
            2. Select File Menu and choose New Incognito Window
            3. Download extension New Incognito Window

            This feature is very handy if you’d rather not have your browsing history stored and utilized for future advertisement or suggested pages.

            Save Webpages as PDF Files

            Have you ever browsed interesting or important information and then forgot to bookmark or save it in “favorites”, making it impossible to find again? Chances are you have done this on a number of occasions.

            Thankfully, there is an easy solution. You can save webpages as PDF files. On your keyboard, press control/command+p and you will be able to save webpages as PDFs.

            Open Recently-closed Tabs

            Ever had dozens of tabs opened and all of a sudden your browser shuts down? It has probably happened to all of us. You can easily recover all of your tabs using two approaches. Don’t panic if this happens because there is a workaround and solution for it.

            One is by pressing Ctrl/CMD+Shift+T.

            The other approach is to click on the three vertical dots on your browser and hover over “History”.


            Solve Mathematical Problems

            Google’s Chrome browser doesn’t just search for relevant and updated information. It is also capable of performing some mathematical problems. Within the omnibox (Chrome’s address or URL bar), you can perform mathematical exercises.

            For example, if you are struggling with percentages you can search 20 percent of x amount and it will instantly provide a result. Pretty handy, right?!

            Play Media Files

            Are you frequently met with difficulties when playing or watch a video files? Well, once again Chrome comes to the rescue. You can can listen or play videos from all sorts of movie or music files (mp3, mp4, .mov, .mkv, .ogv, .webm, .wav, etc.) by simply dragging the file into the search bar.

            In addition, you can view images, PDF files and Microsoft Office files, too.

            Navigate Swiftly Between Tabs

            With all of those tabs opened comes great navigation responsibilities. Rather than clicking through every tab, you can use shortcut keys like Ctrl+Tab to navigate all of the different tabs. Also, you are able to navigate to the first tab by pressing Ctrl-1, Ctrl-2, and so on. If you want to switch to the very last tab, press Ctrl-9.

            Stay Focus(e)d

            Computers nowadays have awesome capabilities.


            Sometimes we like to get work done, but let’s face it, we’re all human. We sometimes procrastinate by visiting a website we really like, or maybe take a break with watching a flick on Netflix, a video on YouTube or browsing Facebook.

            With Chrome’s StayFocusd extension, you can truly stay focused and get more done in less time.

            This extension naturally helps you stay more productive by limiting the amount of time you spend on websites. You can set the time and it will automatically block those sites after a certain period.

            Grammarly for Editing

            Grammarly is a must have, and it’s really a complete powerhouse. Grammarly helps you check your grammar and spelling for everything you write online.

            You can use it professionally or as a student, which will make the editing process much easier and more efficient. Furthermore, it can automatically check for typos when you send an email, type a Tweet, or post a Facebook comment. It’s like having your own personal copyeditor!


            There are times that words in an email or written text in a chat app will just not convey the right meaning.


            There is a saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, the same is true of videos.

            With Loom, you can capture, narrate and immediately share video recordings of your screen, which will help coworkers understand issues you are facing, or to easily convey an explanation on screen. Plus, with video you will be able to easily walk people through a process, and you can use it to create simple how-to videos.

            Chrome Calendar Extension

            No matter what your level of responsibility is at your job, Google Calendar is another essential resource to have at your fingertips.

            Specifically, you can have this extension added as an icon in the toolbar of your browser, which I highly recommend. Once you add the extension to your browser, you can check for upcoming events with a single click without leaving your current page.

            Final Thoughts

            Google Chrome has definitely evolved from its inception. As you can see you have a very powerful tool that comes as a free installation and is loaded with dozens of capabilities. The above listed Chrome apps can resolve some of the most common obstacles to your time management and productivity.
