I have had two iPhone 3G's sitting on the kitchen counter for about three months. Just sitting there. I've donated phones to the troops in the past, but I seriously doubt the troops are happy to get five year old cell phones, so donating a very dated iPhone didn't sound like the best thing to do either.
So, there they sat.
Gazelle.com. They commercial stated that if I went to the site, gave some information about the old phones that they would buy them from me.
Woohoo!! Cash money!! Somalians for the iPhones!!
Gazelle.com got a visit from me that day. I answered some questions about the phone, and yes, it was one of the ones they accepted, and yes it it was in good shape they would pay me $43.00 for each one!
$43.00! They only cost me $99.00 two and a half years ago. That means the iPhones were going to end up costing me $0.06 a day for the past 30 months.
Six cents a day!
Gazelle.com sent me a package containing a box , and a postage paid shipping label for me to send them the phones. Once in their hands they would confirm its condition, and if it was what I said it was they would send along a check for $43.00 for each one of the phones. Friday we received the checks.
Now, enjoy your coffee, and after you read this, round up your old cell phones, and go check out gazelle.com. They may have a tank of gas waiting for you.
