NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — On Monday, we showed you how to clear your cell phone before you trade it in for a new device. Apple’s announcement last week has a lot of people looking to upgrade their gadgets but it comes at a cost. We are helping you stretch your dollar with where you’ll get the most money for your old phone.
Money.com compared some of the most popular trade-in sites and here’s what they found:
Apple’s “trade-up” program won’t give cash, but will give you a $225 Apple gift card for the iPhone 6 in good working condition.
Best Buy won’t give as much. Money says they’ll give approximately $166 for the same phone and your payment will come in the form of a Best Buy gift card.
Gazelle offers between $50 and $176 depending on the phone and its condition.
Then there are sites like Swappa that give you the option to sell it outright or use it as a marketplace and try to get more money. Users have reportedly make between $190 and $310 for their iPhone 6.
Glyde is another to consider. It’s also more of a marketplace connecting buyers and sellers. There are fees involved. An iPhone listed at $316 when sold would get the seller roughly $265 dollars.
Prices will of course vary based on the model and condition. Wireless providers also offer some type of trade-up but are not typically as much money as other options will get you, but it is convenient so it’s all about what your goal is.
