It’s getting close to the point of no return when it comes to getting the most money possible from trading in your old iPhone. As we pointed out last month, once the iPhone launch comes around, your phone’s value drops considerably. By as much as 20% in the 3-4 weeks following the announcement, which is set to take place at an event in Cupertino on September 10th. So, if you want to trade in your old iPhone, now is the time to do it.
Obviously, there are plenty of companies around that will gladly recycle your old iPhone and give you money for it. And – of course – Apple has recently started offering an in-store trade-in in partnership with BrightStar. If you want to take the risk, there’s always the option to take the time to sell it yourself on sites like Craigslist or eBay. But, a few bad experiences from my end have ensured I find it almost impossible to recommend those as the best ways to get money for your old devices.
One company that we at TiP have grown to love using is NextWorth. Our guys have used them a few times and found them to offer great value for money on old iDevices and a service that’s quick and painless. What’s more, they also offer a 30-day price lock. So, if you arrange to sell your iPhone now, you can still keep it until you’ve got your new iPhone 5S or 5C and then send it in and still get the amount quoted to you at checkout. They always include free shipping and insurance and you can choose between three different kinds of payment. All in all, it’s one of the best recycling experiences out there.
It’s why we’re so excited to announce that we have partnered with NextWorth to offer our readers an exclusive code that’ll give you an extra 10% on your trade in. All you have to do is enter the code ‘TODAYSIPHONE’ at checkout and you’ll get even more value for your old device.
As an example of what you can expect to get, I’ve listed a handful of prices below, each presuming that your iPhone works properly and isn’t damaged. Prices are subject to change and were correct at time of writing on September 6th, 2013. Obviously if your phone is broken or not working, the amount you’ll get will be considerably less than what you’d get for a fully functional and well looked after device.
