I have a lot of old gadgets and I have always been scared about selling them on eBay. So I've mostly sold them on Gazelle.com and been very happy about it. It's simple and easy and I get a decent amount of money for it. Still - I have always known that all resellers like that do is wipe your device and resell it for more money on a site like eBay. So I've been tempted to cut out the middle man a make some extra money.
I got rid of a few things in the governor's office that I didn't believe our citizens should have to pay for. That luxury jet was over-the-top. I put it on eBay.- Sarah Palin
A month ago I gave eBay a shot and I have been exceptionally happy with my outcome.
1st Generation Apple TV? Gazelle would give me $16 for it. I jailbroke it and sold it on eBay for $125. Are you paying attention? That is more than it costs to buy a NEW AppleTV from Apple.
Verizon Motorola Droid? Gazelle said they would only take it for recycling. I rooted it and sold it on eBay for $40.
When it came time to get my new iPhone 5s, I turned to sell my old iPhone 4s on eBay. Since my 2-year contract was over I had ATT unlock it. Gazelle was going to give me $200 and eBay gave me $295.
My crown jewel? My 2004 PowerBook G4. It has been worthless for quite some time in the eyes of resellers. eBay? $201. Seriously? I live this plCe! I can only imagine the thousands of dollars in old electronics I have given away over the years. I could have been a richer man.
