Broken iPhones may help you survive till payday
That older and broken iPhone you stuffed into your draw and forgot about may still be worth a few dollars to help you get through to payday this month, says Flipsy, a company that helps you figure out what your spare stuff is worth.
Even broken Samsung’s are worth a little cash…
Flipsy has published a short breakdown around the value of some models of broken iPhone, and while the news is still pretty poor for anyone with a cracked iPhone 4S, if you have a more recent model you may be able to realise a few dollars.
Cracked screens, faded batteries, water damaged devices even iPhones that don’t turn on may be worth a few dollars.
“You can typically expect to get around 50% to 80% less than the value of a phone in “good” condition. For example, you can sell an iPhone XS (64GB Verizon) in good condition for $445 on Flipsy. In broken condition, it’s worth $218,” its report explains.
The company instantly compares buyback offers from dozens of Trust Verified Stores that pay for used phones, so you can use it to find the best deal for your device.
Other ways to make quick money
If you are a little strapped for cash, there are other ways to realize a little cash this season: Online surveys, selling unwanted items through eBay, join one of those market research panels – you can even rent out your car when you aren’t using it.
However, while it’s true to imagine lots of ways to make a little spare cash, most of these also eat up vast chunks of your time for relatively small reward.
It’s also true that reducing existing costs can be a useful step at this time of year, from eradicating unwanted direct debits to finding cheaper energy suppliers or even using iOS to cut your legal or insurance costs.
But don’t forget to see if you can’t sell your old iPhone…
