I am purchasing a new Mac air. I will be receiving Beats solo 3 headphones which I don’t want. What is the easiest way to return sell or exchange them? Can I take them to a Walmart target etc for store credit?

I have never sold anything on eBay or other sites so it would be a hassle for me.

Thanks

I sincerely doubt it...you would need to check they 1) stock the headphones and 2) accept returns for serialized items with no receipt. You will likely need to sell privately.

Tell them at purchase you don’t want them.
If ordering online sell them. Most retail stores in general don’t like getting ripped off.

Thank you

I guess I will venture into eBay and try to sell them. I don’t know why Apple can’t just give me cheaper AirPods. Such a nuisance

Should have selected the Studio3s instead, much easier sell and more dollars in your pocket.

Definitely bother with eBay. It's the only way to sell. Been selling on eBay for twenty years, never had a problem. Love it!

:rolleyes:
Definitely DON'T bother with eBay.... particularly since the OP has never sold anything on eBay before. Selling Beats on eBay with "ZERO" feedback is just asking for scammers to come out of the woodwork. Any buyer will be skeptical of them being genuine, and the scammer buyers will claim that they're counterfeit.

This. Don't use eBay even if a seller with feedback. So many scammers that can simply state item is counterfeit or item not as described and eBay will send them their money back and let them keep the item. There are good buyers as well so it's just playing a risk.

Sell locally. Facebook is quick and easy.

Found buyers through friends network. I guess getting studio 3 for 180 is a good deal vs 220 online through legit sources.
