    I got $550 last week for a 64GB iPhone 4S on an eBay auction so... yeah. Not really a deal there.

    Amazon trade in credit is also much better. Still $405-420 amazon credit for a 32gb 4s depending on color and carrier.

    Amazon trade in is good for those who shop a lot on amazon.

    All of these instant pay options are really for chumps. They pay you so little so they can just turn around and easily sell it for more.

    Just sell it on eBay through an auction and get the most value for your phone.

    I would sell it on CL before eBay. I understand its more effort but eBay fees are outrageous

    You have to realize - while GameStop is lower, it is:

    Convenient/ Easily accessible.
    Safer.
    Faster.

    Don't trust Craigslist any more and do not want to deal with scammers and fake buyers. Do not want to send my phone off to amazon and wait 6 weeks until a check comes in for the wrong price.

    Good Gazelle Service

    Agreed!

    In my area Gamestop wasn't locking in the prices.

    I used Gazelle.

    Last year I used them with my 2 iPhone 3gs.

    This year, I locked in my 2 phones at 288 a month ago. I rated my phones GOOD.

    I got my iPhone 5's last Friday. I sent the iPhone 4s though the USPS with Gazelles packaging on Saturday at the same time.

    They received the first phone on Monday and by Tuesday evening they accepted full value.

    The second phone was logged in on Thursday morning and tonight (Friday) they accepted full value.

    Two checks are on the way.

    Thanks Gazelle

    It takes like two days with Amazon. You just ship it to them(which they pay for) and as soon as they get it, they credit your account.
