How To: Get Money For Your Old Cell Phone

Turn in your older electronics for cash.

GameStop offers cash or store credit for Apple products.

If you’ve upgraded your phone recently, you’re probably wondering what to do with your old model. Why not get some cash for that old phone?

Samsung has announced that they will refund money to consumers who return their old cell phones within 30 days of getting an upgraded model. The amount you receive varies on the phone you return and its conditions however; in some cases you could get up to $300 for your old phone.

If you have any Apple products, GameStop stores offer cash or store credit on used products depending on the item and its condition. You could receive over $300 for your iPad, iPod classic, iPhone, and other products.

Another option is to sell your used phone on websites like Amazon or eBay. If your cell phone carrier doesn’t have a buyback program this is a great option for getting cash for your old cell phone. You could even include cell phone accessories and sell it as a bundle.

In addition, Amazon has a program where consumers can trade-in their old electronics for an Amazon gift card. Ultimately Amazon will decide how much they will pay for the item and it is based on the product and its condition.

Other companies that have buyback programs include Best Buy, Sprint, and Verizon.
