    I was just curious what you guys all thought would be the best place to see my current iPhone 6 plus 64gb. I know about Gazelle but they def low ball you. I prefer not to go the EBAY route. I was considering Amazon. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Basically trying to get the most money for it as possible.

    Craigslist is honestly the best assuming you can find a buyer, since there's no fees and people can't scam you with return fraud, but it's the riskiest for a buyer because if they get a blacklisted phone they are screwed. Problem is if you list on CL you will get a million lowball offers and people wasting your time. eBay is okay, but their fees are astronomical and you have to worry about buyers committing fraud and claiming "item not as described", then they can just keep it and file a case for eBay to step in, and eBay does not ever decide in favor of sellers, so now the place is rife with con artists.

    Home? To a friend or relative that doesn't need the cutting edge phone. ;-)

    Is there a site that shows avg market price for your used iPhone?

    Would Gazelle be a good target price? Like try to sell for a little more than what Gazelle offers?

    Swappa has charts that tell you the average price month-by-month.
    Gazelle would definitely be less than what you get from an individual buyer elsewhere.

    Amazon will only give you amazon gift cards and same with apple. But I did notice that Apple has jumped from $250 max gift card yesterday to $325 max today. And even crazier, when I went to price my 64GB ATT iPhone 6 Plus, their site said $400 gift card (subject to verification in store).

    Gazelle is the simplest IF YOU
    Sell it Before The Announcement and lock in a price for 30 days
    You Won't get a Premium For your collection
    Gazelle Doesn't want your original box charger buds cases etc. Just A Working Phone with Extra points for condition.

    However if you do keep your precious factory you can squeeze out and additional 50-$100
    Along with the Craigslist sociopathic behavior and or Ebay scams.
    Depends on how much your time is worth.

    Gazelle is a ****ing joke. $204 for my mint condition iPhone 6 Plus 128GB, lol. That EASILY sells for $500 on eBay. If you're profoundly lazy, go with one of these "services" and pay the lazy idiot tax. Otherwise, take a couple photos and put it on eBay with a short description for hundreds more.

    What a coincidence, you may notice that Gazelle has their own eBay store that sells those phones at or just barely under whatever the current market price for them is online ;) It's just like a pawn shop for the lazy or uneducated, they get FAST CASH RIGHT THIS SECOND and someone else laughs at them and takes their money in the long run.

    I will gladly pay the idiot tax. Some of us are lazy and dealing with ebay and paypal is a no go ever no never.

    Swappa offered me $10 more than the Apple Store would for my wife's iPhone 6 64GB. That's also a check, which is more valuable to me than a gift card from Apple. I'm not wanting to spend a bunch of time selling it online, so this option works for me.

    I use GoLsn.com. I think it may be a local thing though. I listed my 6s yesterday morning and within 10 minutes someone wanted it. Met them last night.

    Swappa doesn't offer you a price, you choose a price and list it for that. You are also responsible for shipping it to the buyer.

    I sold my iPhone 6s 128GB (mint condition) on eBay for $685. But that was like a month ago. You always get the best prices when selling before the announcement. Swappa is a good selling site also with a flat rate selling fee ($10). I never sell to sites like Gazelle, etc. They are such a rip off.

    This is my second year selling with Orchard.. they offered me $431 for my 6S, which was a few hundred dollars more than Gazelle and other resellers. They pay for everything, like shipping, etc. etc. Definitely recommend checking them out for anyone who is curious http://www.getorchard.com/us

    Apple dropping the price of a new 6s plus 128gb by $200 today won't help used values.

    It sounds like you send your phone to Orchard, and then they put it up for auction. You have no idea how much you'll get until they already have your phone. That sounds like a bad idea.

    You can sell directly to Swappa as well. That's what I'm doing with my wife's phone and it's a check for $235. $10 more than Apple and more versatile since it's a check rather than Apple GC.
