Phones aren’t cheap, and we live in a time where you really can’t get by without one. The need to upgrade tends to come quicker than we think, and when it does, it’s hard to get value out of your old phone.
How can something that cost you $700+ just a few years ago now be worth nearly nothing when it comes to trade-in time?
The truth is, it’s not. If you keep your phone in good condition, it’s worth a lot more than you may think.
How Does Glyde Help Me Get the Most Money for My Used Phone?
Often times, the things holding you back from getting a fair trade-in value for your old phone are:
- Aggregate pricing
- Lack of internal and external quality checks
- Non-reputable resellers
Glyde looks to eliminate all of these problems in order to provide you with a trustworthy, transparent, and value-driven experience that helps you not only get the best value for your used phone, but also helps you to find high-quality premium-used phones to upgrade to at discounted prices.
Here’s a bit more about how Glyde helps you to get to get the most out of your old phone when it comes time for trade-in.
1. Calculate Value Based on Your Phone’s Condition
Many used phones look the same when you’re holding them in your hand. Most resellers look for signs of external damage like cracks on the screen, scuff marks around the corners, and then give you an estimate from there.
But we know that the true condition of your phone is based on both internal and external factors. If you take exceptional care of your phone on the inside, but have a few small dings on the outside, you should be able to get more value than someone with a beautiful looking phone that barely functions. Likewise, the best phones should be worth more than the worst ones, not just a blanket price point across them all – which utterly neglects the quality of your phone, and doesn’t help you get the most money for it.
At Glyde, we take the value of your phone very seriously. In many ways, your phone isn’t like any other used phone – so why should its value be exactly the same? Our quick trade-in quiz helps you to calculate the value of your phone based on your exact make, model, carrier, and condition – to help you get the trade-in value you deserve.
2. Get Fair Market Value for Your Used Phone
This process helps you to get the real market value of your phone – not just some estimate.
To give you an idea of just how much this helps people save when it comes time to buy a new phone, an iPhone 7 with a cracked screen is still worth $40, meanwhile, newer iPhones and Galaxy models that are in excellent condition can net you over $300 or more.
3. Easy & Safe Trade-In Process
Trading in your old phone for a new one has never been easier or more affordable. To get started, all you need to do is take a quick quiz to tell us more about your phone and get a free valuation.
You can choose to redeem this value in cash, or in-store credit towards a premium pre-owned phone. From there, we will give you specific instructions on where to send your phone, how to get it ready for trade-in, and more.
We handle all shipping costs when you trade-in your old phone, and will even send you your new phone with a 30-day window to send in your old one, so you don’t go a single minute without a way to stay in touch.
4. Free Shipping, Order Tracking & Order Protection
You deserve to know where your order is at all times, and when it will arrive. This is especially important when it comes to something as integral to your daily life as a cell phone. You can easily track your order on the Glyde website. On top of order tracking, you also get free shipping on your orders and your trade-ins.
Lastly, you need to make sure you’re investing in a phone that is high-quality and that fits you perfectly. So, you need a chance to test it out and get a feel for it. That’s why with each order you also get a 14-day money-back guarantee and a 2 month warranty.
5. Cash or Credit Towards a Premium-Used Phone
When you are selling your old phone, you deserve options. Maybe you just want cash in hand, maybe you want to sell your old phone in order to help pay for your new one.
If you trade in your old phone with Glyde, you can choose cash or trade-in credit towards a premium pre-owned phone of your choice.
With this lucrative combo, not only are you saving up to 80% on a premium pre-owned phone, you are also able to get money from your old phone and use it towards your upgrade – the way phone trade-ins should be.
