By Space Coast Daily // November 20, 2018
In today’s world, when technology is constantly being improved and innovated, it’s easy to upgrade and forget about the leftovers. We stuff old phones in a desk drawer or a bin in the closet and forget about them.
But these pre-upgrade tech items are valuable! And the burgeoning “recommerce” market, you can even stand to make some extra money by selling an old phone or other device. Or, you can trade something in to receive an upgraded item to gift away over the holidays. Here are some of the top pre-owned items that you can sell in exchange for newer upgraded products.
Nearly everyone has a phone (or more than one phone) today, so phones are one of the top items to trade in via recommerce sites. Depending on the quality of your phone and the condition of the device, including if there are scratches or cracks, or if there are any internal bugs, you can stand to turn quite a good deal with your trade in.
Once you determine the quality of your trade in, and how much money you can make from the deal, then you can start assessing other options to trade out for. Many sites offer detailed overviews, some include reviews of each product, like a Gazelle phone review. So you can fully understand what kind of trade you’ll be making when you unload your old items.
Another popular item that you can trade in using recommerce sites is a tablet. Tablets are in varying stages of use and popularity right now, and there’s also quite a great divide from some of the original models, and the newer, better models.
Depending on what kind of old model you have, you can easily trade in a tablet for a newer version, that may not have all the bells and whistles, but still is a substantial upgrade. These types of tablet make great gifts for older relatives who would enjoy a tablet, but don’t need to highest level of technology.
Speaking of tablets, e-reader devices, such as Kindles, are also great trade-in items for recommerce. Many people now use their tablets or even their phones as reading devices, so e-readers are becoming less and less popular.
If you own an e-reader, then it makes sense for you to trade it in and receive something else that’s more technologically relevant. Scour recommerce sites like Gazelle to find an option you like better, and see what kind of leverage you have.
No matter what kind of technology you already possess, chances are it will be probably go out of date, or out of style sooner than you think.
Do the smart thing and get ahead of the trend by trading in your current or outdated tech for a slightly newer recommerce model. Or if you have something unused lying around the house, trade it in for a cheap and easy holiday gift. You’ll feel good about cleaning out your home, and also give a great gift to friends, family, and loved ones!
