There’s no doubt about the fact that we rely on technology so much nowadays. Whether we’re working on a project, playing a favorite game, or chatting with friends/family, many of us are connected for a good portion of the day. Many of us also tend to upgrade our devices every few years, but what happens to the old devices? Now there’s an easy way to trade them in thanks to Trademore.

My husband and I actually try to upgrade our phones every two years or so. As a blogger, I depend on my phone all day, approving blog comments, interacting with social media followers, responding to client emails and so much more. I also use my phone to check the news, check the weather, and keep in touch with friends and relatives. My husband uses his phone for work purposes so he relies on it throughout the day as well. We also have a few tablets in the house that are used by the kids. Over the years, when we’ve upgraded a device, we’ve put the old one in a junk drawer. At this point, there are quite a few electronic devices in that drawer.

It seems silly to me to throw them away. Most of them are in good condition. All of them are still functional. Furthermore, we’ve invested a good amount of money in these devices over time so I’d hate to simply throw that money away. With Trademore, it’s possible – and very simple – to trade in old smart phones, tablets and smart watches. In fact, Trademore allows consumers to unlock the value of their used devices in a sustainable, eco-friendly way.

The process to trade in your phone is so straightforward and quick. The first step is to visit “How Much Is my Phone Worth?” webpage here.

First, choose either iPhone or smartphone. Then enter in your device name or select from a drop-down menu of common devices. Next, provide some general device info, such as carrier, capacity, color and condition. Select the condition of the phone according to the following: perfect (fully functional & like-new,) good (fully functional with normal wear & tear,) or poor (not fully functional / cracked screen.) Finally, click “Continue to Offer.” I love how easy Trademore has made it to navigate through this page.

Keep in mind that offers are valid for 30 days, which I really appreciate. This means that if you’re a little hesitant about moving forward, you don’t have to feel pressure to act immediately. You can think about it for a little while. Once you complete the checkout process and submit your mailing address, Trademore will send you a “recovery kit.” I was impressed by just how quickly the kit arrived at my doorstep.

The recovery kit includes a free pre-paid, pre-packaged box with everything needed to send your device back to Trademore. It comes with protective padding to keep your phone secure on the return trip to Trademore, as well as a pre-paid UPS shipping label for the return trip. There are even detailed instructions printed right on the inside of the box to help you get your phone ready for its trip. Trademore has really thought of everything to make this a stress-free experience for its consumers!

Once Trademore receives and inspects the device, they will issue payment. You can choose to receive payment via PayPal or Virtual MasterCard® Gift Card. 

Maybe you want to upgrade your phone but you don’t want to throw away the old one. Or maybe you’d like to clean out a drawer that houses some old electronics. Maybe you could use some extra money with the holidays coming up. Check out Trademore to see how easy it is to trade in your old devices.

By the way, if you are in the market to purchase a new device, Trademore sells them too. You can find a wide variety of certified pre-owned smartphones, iPhones and tablets right on their site.
