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).

            Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

            Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

            Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

            Does technology have all the answers?

            This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

            Creating technological solutions transparently

            This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

            Technology as the connecting tool

            Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

            “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
