    hey all,

    I want to sell my IPad Air 1 to buy an iPad Pro. Was wondering if it is better to sell back to Apple through their recycling program in store or sell to Best Buy? Anyone ever sold stuff back to Apple? Thanks in advance.

    I agree with trying on Craigslist first. Yes it's inconvenient but should yield you more money!

    Swappa is a GREAT way to go. Used it for the first time with my iPad Air 2 wifi 64GB & I got $400 out of it. ($390 in my pocket before shipping.) Swappa only takes $10 in fees.

    The above posters are right and you will get more selling of using Swappa. The trade in program is hassle free but nets the least amount of money.

    I just sold my 2015 retina Macbook Pro. I looked into Gazelle and they offered me $665 for it. I decided to list it on eBay and ended up getting $1100 for it. The moral of the story is that you will almost always get more from selling the item independently than you will from trading it in or selling it to places like Gazelle.

    Next time try Swappa. I was hesitant at first because I've sold a ton on eBay. But the process you are required to go through for verification, the contact with Swappa staff throughout and the $10 Swappa fee are AWESOME. You simply have to include shipping in the asking price. I sold my iPad Air 2 on Swappa and got $400 for it. (Minus shipping, Swappa fee and PayPal fee...I got $370 total.) more than what I would've gotten on eBay for sure! Ebay's fees are ridiculous!

    I'm using my iPad Pro as a laptop now, and already have a laptop from work. It was just a redundant piece of the puzzle.
