Check out these tips to help you get a great deal for your old cell phone


Don’t Wait Too Long

The release of newer smartphone models usually means a drop in the price of older models.  If you know that you will be upgrading your smartphone, don’t wait until the latest model is already out.  Sell your phone while it can still get a good price. Now is the perfect time to find out how much you can sell your phone for.  Even though the newer iPhone models don’t come out for a while, it is best to get the most out of your cell phone while you still can.  


Don’t Settle for Convenience

While it can be tempting to sell your old phone and buy a new one in the same transaction, you may not be getting the money that your phone is worth.  When you trade in your smartphone, look around to find your best options. Do some research to compare the pricing you may get for your phone. While it may take time, remember that convenience doesn’t always mean the best deal.  Consider selling your phone online. You’ll be surprised at how easy it is to sell your phone online without sacrificing convenience or price.
