I already got my new iPhone. I realize there is a new one coming out pretty soon, but I convinced myself that the latest model had everything that I needed and I that I wasn’t rushing into anything. In the back of my mind, I know I’m going to want the new one. What is it about us humans that always wants a little bit of what we don’t have?
Well, a company called Gazelle is counting on it. We mentioned Gazelle before, as a pretty easy, fast and fair way for you to get some cash for your no longer loved electronics and now, they have made trading up even easier, with an app that when downloaded to your phone, will actually detect your iPhone model and provide you with an offer on the spot. You simply need to answer a few quick questions to accept your offer at checkout and then ship your phone off to Gazelle, postage paid and then wait for payday.
So now I have my backup plan… if I’m so enamoured by the yet-to-be-released new iPhone I’ll drop it like a hot potato. Gazelle also buys iPods, iPads some Macbooks, iMac, Mac Mini, Apple TV and a few other Smartphones. So if you were just waiting for a trade up that made financial sense, maybe this will help you feel just a tiny bit less guilty.
Check out Gazelle.com for more information, or download the app, available at the app store. (and don’t worry, Gazelle takes steps to ensure all your data is removed before they responsibly re-use or recycle your stuff) Phew!
