“If you plan to purchase an iPhone 6s later this month, now’s the time to help fund that upgrade by making plans to trade in your existing iPhone before its value plummets,” Katie Marsal reports for AppeleInsider. “And for the next 7 days, Gazelle is offering up to $480 cash for old iPhones alongside a guarantee to beat any competitive offer from Apple or its big four US wireless partners.”
“The week leading up to this year’s iPhone 6s introduction is also key to reaping the most cash for your old phone,” Marsal reports. “Last year, for example, iPhone 5s trade-in payouts fell roughly 15% in the two weeks surrounding the announcement of the iPhone 6 and then dipped an additional 15% in the 3 weeks following the actual launch (see chart above). This historical pricing trend is expected to play out similarly this year.”
Marsal reports, “As of press time, Gazelle was paying $461 for a 64GB iPhone 6 Plus (Verizon), $311 for a 64GB iPhone 6 (AT&T), and around $160 for most 64GB iPhone 5s models in ‘Good’ condition.”
