Looking to make some extra Christmas money for gifts – why not sell your old gadgets?
Come November each year, I start planning for Christmas gifts – while I do shopping all year long, I swear each year I will save all year long, but let’s face it – that doesn’t happen. Life happens and money goes elsewhere. While we are really trying to be purposeful and intentional with gifts we are buying for the kids at Christmas – they still cost money.
If you are looking to earn some extra cash and have a few old gadgets laying around, this maybe the post you were MEANT to read today! *high five* if it is!
Unclutter your life and earn some cash by selling your stuff phones, tablets, iPods, old computers – how many of these devices do you have stored in a closet or drawer being unused?
Sell Old Gadgets = $
The average American family–where average means there are at least three devices–are sitting on somewhere between $500 and $1000. Thats a lot of cash that can be put toward holiday shopping, and most families dont even know its there! For example, an iPad can fetch up to $425 (even an iPad mini can get you up to $300), an iPhone 5 can get up to $310, and a broken iPhone can bring in nearly $120.
Gazelle offers a fast and easy way for consumers to get cash for their used electronics like iPhones, iPads, Macbooks Samsung Galaxy devices, tablets and other smartphones. More than 600,000 consumers have used Gazelle to sell over one million gadgets.
There is a significant market for unwanted consumer electronics, especially within that three year range, and people will pay for it. Gazelle, for example, has paid an average of nearly $400 for a used Apple desktop or laptop computer in the last year. Other average values from Gazelle for popular devices over the last year include:
iPads – $235
iPhones – $134
Android phones – $81
BlackBerry phones – $64
We’ve used Gazelle before and it was so super easy. Here is how it works:
1. Get a free offer:

2. Ship it to Gazelle:

The beauty of Gazelle is that you don’t have to wait for your item to sell – Gazelle purchases it and does the reselling. All you have to do is ship your tech product to them and get paid. Easy peasy – instead of cash for gold – it’s cash for tech!
