Cash for Old Cell Phones and Electronics

Have old electronics laying around gathering dust?

Go get em, dust em off, and sell em to for cash.

That’s right, will buy your old electronics – and they pay pretty darn well.

What can you sell?

They will buy pretty much any type of Smartphone or Apple product including:

  • iPhones
  • Cell phones (Blackberry, HTC, LG, Motorola, Nokia, and Samsung)
  • iPads
  • iPods
  • Apple computers (MacBook, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, Mac Mini, and Mac Pro)
  • Other Apple products (Apple TV and Apple displays)

How much will you make?

More than you’re making by having your device sitting around, but exact amounts depend on the type of device, it’s age, and the shape it’s in.

As an example: I headed over to Gazelle to see about selling our iPad.

I went through the following steps – which took about a minute – and I had my price offer.

  1. Pick device type = iPad
  2. Pick device model and type = 2nd generation, wifi only, 16GB memory
  3. What shape is it in (choices are broken, good, flawless) = good

The offer for my device (as listed above) was $160.

That’s a little less than 50% of what I paid for the device over a year ago – not too shabby.

Other cool features of

Since I’m an Apple guy, I can realize other cool benefits from using Gazelle.

For example: they will buy my old Macbook Pro [Apple MacBook Pro (6,2) Core i7 2.66 GHz 15″ 500GB (2010)] for $713 and even take care of the packing and shipping.

This is cool because I’ll be upgrading to a new MacBook Pro in less than four months, and using Gazelle will cut the cost of my new computer by almost half and I don’t have to waste time or effort trying to sell it on Craigslist of Ebay.
