The Good: You can set an 'auction reserve' to attempt to get a higher cash value, lot's of people may want cheap phones or parts.
The Bad: Setting up listings, images etc. Listing fees, no guaranteed sale. and you will still have to post the device off. Make sure you set a fair postage to cover your costs.
The Good: Totally 100% free to list products on these sites.
The Bad: The products you list require local pick-up as all sites do not recommend posting the goods due to rare but possible scam artists.
The Good: Some stores on here give you around 10% more if you put the credit on the store cards, such as Boots, Tesco, ASDA and Currys/PC world.
The Bad: The down side is you're limited to what you spend, also they can take some time to load the points on, for example Boots can be 14 days.
The Good: Basically, JUMP gives anyone on a contract the power to upgrade their phone after 6 months. The sales pitch is...
When you want to change your phone during a contract there are 3 choices:
The first option is the only one that does not cost you a pile of cash you don't need to spend.
Phones4U Jump tries to resolve this by costing the rest of your contract, they then value your phone (to their market estimate) and take it to buy out the contract and give you the new phone.
The bad: The bad side to this is that extra costs could be incurred if the values they estimate don't match up. Often the larger brands like mobile networks and Carphone Warehouse that offer 'the best trade in price' usually don't. From comparing 40+ stores we hear this statement all the time from companies but the comparison table doesn't lie, most times there is a substantial difference in price offered.
Here at Comparemymobile.com, we know phones drop in price, some up to £100 every year! The smartest thing to do when buying a new phone is to place a recycling order the same day you get your new phone. You get the best price at the time frozen!
