With trade-in bonuses a fairly rare occurrence at Gazelle, now is the time to take advantage of not one, but four cash bonuses this week. A leader in the buyback sector, Gazelle has been a fixture in our trade-in guides over the years, and this week the company is offering customers 7 to 10 percent more on top of competitive cash payouts on iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, 8 Plus or X trades. With the cash bonus, customers can add up to $60 to their trade value, freeing up even more cash for a new device. Each deal must be activated by using the corresponding link below, and only one offer can be activated at a time. These deals expire May 13, so don’t delay.
Cash bonus on smartphone trade-ins at Gazelle
How to trade in your iPhone for cash in minutes at Gazelle
Step 1: To begin the process of trading in your iPhone at Gazelle, identify your current iPhone from Gazelle’s website (by selecting your model, carrier and capacity) and then quickly assess its condition —broken, good, or flawless. Gazelle will then provide you with an immediate cash offer quote. Click the orange “Get Paid” button to continue with the process to lock in the trade-in value for up to 30 days. Remember, to activate the cash bonus you have to use the special links above.
Step 2: You’ll then be asked to log in to your Gazelle account (if you have one) or quickly create one (with just an email, name & password). You can then select how you prefer to be paid: by PayPal, check, or in the form of an Amazon Gift Card (receive an extra 3% with this method).
Step 3: Gazelle will then ask for your address so it can send you a pre-paid shipping box (for small electronics with a trade-in value of $30 or more) that you can use to send in your iPhone when you’re ready. Alternatively, you can choose to have Gazelle email you a pre-paid shipping label and you can affix it to your own box.
Step 4: Within days, the pre-paid shipping box will show up at your doorstep. Simply place your old device in the box within 30 days and send it off to Gazelle. (You don’t need to send in any cords or power plugs, just the device itself.)
Once your device is received, Gazelle will completely wipe the personal data off your phone (if you haven’t already) and then return it to its original factory settings. It will then pay you via Paypal, email (for an Amazon Gift Card), or issue a check for the cash value of the device you lock in today.
Using a buyback service like Gazelle in recent years has become an increasingly popular way for consumers to afford upgrading each year to Apple’s latest smartphone by offsetting the cost of those new devices with the cash they make from selling their old iPhones during peak buyback season.
Like iPhones, Gazelle also pays out hundreds for your old iPads and MacBooks. It also sells certified, contract-free & unlocked, pre-used iPhones at up to 40% off compared to buying new.
