You've probably heard me talk about Gazelle before on Mac Power Users, full disclosure, they're a sponsor of the show. But they're also the service that I use to trade in my old iPhones when I'm not handing them down to friends and family. I use Gazelle because they're a trustworthy company that will pay cash for used iPhones, iPads and other Apple technology without any of the hassles. I've also had several friends and colleagues buy used iPhones and iPads from Gazelle with great results.
Could you get more selling your used iPhone yourself through services like eBay or Craigslist? Probably. But those services also add hassle and risk. I've had a couple of bad experiences and I personally prefer to do business with Gazelle.
Gazelle is now giving users another reason to do business with them. Between now and September 9th, the date that Apple is anticipated to release a new iPhone and possibly a new iPad, Gazelle is offering to match other carriers trade-in prices on iPhones. Here are the details from Gazelle's blog post:
Gazelle’s Best Price Guarantee offers the best trade-in price on your old iPhone – paid out in cash, not credit. This special promotion, valid until Wednesday, September 9, guarantees that Gazelle’s cash offer for the iPhone 5s, 6 and 6 Plus will beat the trade-in credit offered by your wireless carrier (AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile or Sprint) or Apple. Terms and conditions apply.
If you think you might be interested in trading in your old iPhone, I'd suggest you go to Gazelle.com and lock in your price now. You can lock your offer for 30-days and have a little additional time to shop around and make a final decision about a possible upgrade.
