    I have a 38mm blue and 38 green that my mom and I will be replacing with 42s. Does it make more sense to return it or should we even bother selling them to someone that's waiting for one? Not looking to make a profit, just want to get my money back and possibly help someone else out in the process. Wwyd?

    Create a quick Craigslist post. If it doesn't sell within a day or two, return. I just did this today when I realized I wanted a SS watch instead of a sport, and in the process turned a profit, which I won't complain about ;)

    Give it to apple, they are not going to keep that watch, plus its much safer.

    I hate scalpers but at this point, it's used so won't be sold by apple to someone else as new, and won't immediately help out someone who is waiting since it will be refurbished stock. But, and it's entirely up to you, why rip someone else off? Just charge them what you paid for it. You've then lost nothing.

    Since it's opened...

    Better sell to people who really want it than returning to Apple to be piled up in the Apple Watch graveyard before it gets refurbished..

    Just sold mine on Gumtree (had ten offers in the first hour) for £450/$685 and someone got the watch straight away, rather than having to wait for Apple to "recycle" it

    They were delighted and I made £110 profit - it's a win win situation.

    When I sell my old iPhones I always use Craigslist and just specify that they must be local to me and I do cash only. Then meet them somewhere safe. My last three were sold right in front of Safeway. The last one was so excited to get my iPhone 5 they practically threw the money at me and were ready to just take the box. I insisted on taking it out and showing them how good a shape it was in and showed that it turned ON.

    Upto you. Returning is risk free and simple, if you sell it, you run the risks with finding a dodgey buyer etc. if your are selling it for the same amount, return it to apple.

    If you're seriously considering selling: I'm very serious and interested in buying the 38mm blue watch!

    Exactly. Stick to local. Meet at a busy, visible public place and don't go alone.

    I agree with selling it. Post the CL ad and see what you get for it. Meet in a public place with security cameras, and do the deed.

    If you are not up for that, just return it to an Apple Store.

    I was actually contacted last week by someone asking if my work was a "Craigslist Safe Zone?" I have never heard that before. She said police stations were announced as Safe Zones by I have no clue. You can go that route too.

    Don't take a check unless it's a travelers check

    Make them turn their travelers checks into cash at a bank. THOSE can be stolen or faked.

    yeah

    yeah, don't take a travelers check, since a bank won't cash it anyway..

    take a cashiers check from a local bank only, or cash.
