    In getting ready for my new iPhone 8+, what places are offering the best prices to buy back old phones? I've checked Gazelle and USell. Who else is paying well for used phones? I'd rather not go the eBay or Craigslist route, as my phone is not in excellent condition.
    I've got a 128gb T-Mobile 6 in silver that's in good working condition and a 16gb T-Mobile 6 in silver that's been water damaged (doesn't turn on), but is in excellent cosmetic condition.

    Apple Store will give you money towards purchasing a new iPhone.
    Best Buy doesn't give you that much for used phone or a tablet, you can check their website.

    I'm also interested in this as I sell my iPhone 6. Unfortunately, my screen is cracked so I won't be getting as much $$$ in return. I've checked the following places and received quotes:
    • Gazelle ($50)
    • ItsWorthMore ($70)
    • USell ($60)
    • Best Buy ($54)
    Is one better than the other? Should I just take the most money?

    I found that GameStop has some of the best buyback prices. They’re currently offering $130.

    Why not use SWAPPA?? I've bought and sold there and it's been great

    Then sell it on Craigslist or go on your local Craigslist and type "iPhone Buy" you will find people local in your area who will pay cash for your device asap.

    Hadn't thought about selling it on eBay. Is there any risk to selling it on there?

    Well E-Bay has a new valet service called Quick Sale where they will do the whole thing for you if you mail them the phone and will give you so much money. http://www.ebay.com/s/phone

    Not eBay. Anything but eBay.

    I recommend CL or Swappa.

    With Ebays Quick Sale its no different then Gazelle, they give you a estimate, they mail you a box and a label, once they receive the phone they check to make sure its in the same condition as you said, then they mail your a check.

    My item isn’t eligible for Quick Sale ... but man the “Trending Price” is very nice looking. Is this a realistic estimate of what I might get from Auction?
