    Has anyone found the best trade-in prices? Here's what I found so far for my iPhone 6, 64GB, Space Gray, Verizon:

    Verizon - $349
    Apple - $325
    Amazon - $322.61
    Best Buy - $315
    Gazelle - $315

    Any others that I'm missing?

    I know that selling it outright yields higher prices, but trade-ins are just so much easier. Plus after ebay/PayPal fees, then shipping, waiting, etc... It's almost not worth the small amount extra I'd get.

    I haven't checked prices anywhere but Apple, however I was surprised to see that I would get the same $325 for my iPhone 6, 16GB, Space Gray, Verizon. I would have thought the extra storage would get more. I agree with you about eBay. Their fees plus the separate Paypal fees now are too high and then there is always the risk of a bad buyer that eBay will side with.

    Craigslist, Swappa, eBay, sell yourself on Amazon.

    I have an offer of $445.50 from Nexworth, but this was a week before the newest iPhone was announced. I don't think I'm selling it, though.

    do you feel comfortable selling on ebay? I hear so many stories of people saying that the box was empty, so on so forth

    I've sold phones and other items via ebay in the past, and never had an issue. I just make sure I list the item accurately, and make a note that all bidders from new accounts (zero feedback) will be automatically cancelled unless they contact me prior to bidding.

    But I've also done trade-ins to Verizon and Best Buy in the past, and find it to be much faster and easier.

    I've never had an issue selling phones on Craigslist before, but this year I just cannot get my 64GB iPhone 6 (white) to sell.

    I've had it up for about 2 weeks with a few re-postings, but I just can't anyone to bite for a price I'm willing to accept ($460 was the best offer).

    Is Swappa safe? I'm definitely leery of attaching my checking account to a PayPal account..and leery of Swappa in general.

    I just have no idea how to get this thing sold for over $500, which is what my wife says I need to sell it for to be able to buy the 6S. First world problems.

    How does Swappa work? I was just trying to get a simple price there, but it told me I had to log in. It also looked like there were just listings of phones to buy, kinda like ebay I guess.

    Is it just a selling site like ebay or Amazon, where you have to wait for a seller to specifically purchase your phone? Or is it a guaranteed thing, where you just send them the phone and they give you the money?

    How do you expect to sell a 6 for $500 when you can get a brand new 6 for $550?

    The 16GB starts at $550 - the 64GB (what I have) starts at $650. I'd say $500 ($150 off) for a mint condition phone with the original box and accessories is a pretty good deal.

    You need to factor in lack of warranty. That alone is $50.

    With your demands you are only calculating $12 of depreciation a month on your phone. Thats crazy.

    I wish I could 'lease' a phone $750 phone for $12 a month.

    Hell you can buy a 64GB AT&T for $450 from Gazelle.

    But who knows, you may be able to fool someone. Doubt it though. And personally if someone offered $500 I'd be a little suspious that they are doing a scam.

    The phone at $650 does not come with a warranty. Also, when brand new, the phone was $750, so depreciation would be $20.83 per month.

    And you can - T-Mobile is leasing the iPhone 6s starting at $5 per month.

    Please come convince my wife to let me sell it for $460 :cool:

    The iPhone6 64GB for $650 does come with Apple's standard 1 year warranty.

    For reference you should look at what price Gazelle is asking for. All of their 64GB phones are selling for about $450-$500. Getting $460 is an amazing deal, SELL IT!

    Gazelle is selling it for $498

    I do have "Or best offer" on my ad..you would think others would at least try to negotiate. Sheesh, this year is rough.

    Oh well, perhaps I'll just wait until the 7! Although I've had every iPhone since the 4s and would love to keep the pattern going.

    Sold it this past Friday, didn't think it would sell so quick, so I've been using my iPhone 5 as a back up until tomorrow

    Fortunately I haven't ran into any issues, I always check buyer ratings before shipping out.

    BuyBackWorld is offering $360 for an iPhone 6 64GB Verizon. I locked in a higher quote a few weeks ago before the price dropped and they are guaranteeing your price until 10/31. They have a promo code for an extra $10.

    NextWorth is offering up to $330 plus they are advertising a code for an extra $15.

    Then there is always CL and the Bay.

    Sold my 6+ 128gb on CL for $600 this morning. Quick sale. Ended up being a nice guy met him in AT&T store. I think CL is the best way to go if you're cautious and insist on talking to the person. Meeting in public or at a police station, etc.

    Probably would have gotten $350-$400 on a trade in.
