    I couldn't find where to post this (maybe in another sticky thread?) anyway, sorry if this topic seems spammy.

    Anyways, Best Buy (yeah, I know...) offered me $190 in-store credit towards an iPhone 6. I'm trying to trade in my 16GB iPhone 5c (Green) on Sprint. I was wondering if this would make a good deal or not. I have been seeing some ebay listings with bids up to $230 and 'buy it now's' are a bit higher, but ebay takes away 10% of the sales for them.

    So is this a good deal or naw? I'm always skeptical with these deals, but this looks a bit legit to my surprising..

    And it's slightly used with some scratches, but nothing major.

    10% of sales, a listing fee, and pay pal takes 4% and take 21 days to get your money if your new. so for 230-23-9=198 plus the hassle of shipping. If it where me i would do the best buy thing and save myself the time.
