    Going to buy an Xs. Currently have a 6s and wife has 5s. I can get $200 credit if I trade in the 6s, but that leaves SWMBO with 5s. (She is a very light user.) I can only get $30 trade-in on the 5s. What do you think my best move is?

    Sell the 5s on Swappa it might fetch $100. The $200 on the 6s isn’t horrible.. You’ll just have to decide if waiting to get an extra $50-$60 is worth it

    I would just keep the 5s. If anything it could be a backup phone.

    Skip a few coffees, if a coffee drinker, and the $30 will materialize in no time.

    Then I'd have to buy 2 new phones.

    A few months for me. I grind my own and pour over. Great!!
    Probably will do what you suggest and keep the 5s until it's useless.

    What is the worth of a mint 7 with 128gb storage on swappa? I don't use that and not familiar.

    If it is in mint condition as you say, you should easily be able to accrue somewhere between $360 and $380 pending the right buyer.

    I've been trying to sell my mint iphone 7 plus 128 gb with box and brand new accessories on CL in Seattle for $350.

    Been a week, lots of lowballers and no buyers yet. I thought that was a fair price.

    Because it’s Craigslist, that’s why. You have to expect others are not willing to pay your price, versus what you would ask online. If you’re not willing to negotiate, then you need to list ‘Price is firm’.
