Here is a money-saving tip, an easy way to earn some extra money or donate to a worthy cause.
Readers sent me for some updates to a popular post I wrote about called Sell Your Old Cellphones . In that article, I mentioned FlipSwap and CellforCash . Here are 3 additional sites to contact about purchasing that old phone or electronic gadget that is in a closet:
My BoneYard accepts cellphones, laptops, MP3 players, desktop computers and flat panel monitors. First register, than type in the make and model for the potential reward value. BoneYard promises to delete all of your personal data, although I strongly suggest you do this yourself. They will send you a pre-paid shipping label via email. You can also choose to donate your items to charities such as the USO, Humane Society, Gillette Children’s Foundation, EarthShare or name your own.
BuyMyTronics – submit your “Tronics” and you will be given an instant price quote. They will purchase your iPod, iPhone, cellphone, PDA, digital camera, game console, laptop or camcorder. You will ship it using their instructions and then you will get paid within 24-48 hours if you have a PAYPAL account, or you will be mailed a check.
NextWorth – wants your gadgets. They buy iPods, iPhones, video games, video game consoles, cameras, laptops, Blackberry PDA’s and GPS systems. Click on the picture of your gadget and then answer a few questions about the condition and accessories you are including. Go to shopping cart and get a price. They provide a pre-paid shipping label. For the Apple products, you can choose to receive a Target gift card and for all products you can choose to receive an Amazon gift card.
If you would like to donate your old phone to a worthy cause, consider HopeLine. All proceeds from donations go to aid victims of domestic violence.
