You probably know you can sell your old phone to online trade-in companies, but did you know you can cash in today by selling to local buyers? Online buyback price comparison site Flipsy.com has added a new feature that makes it easy to find local stores that offer cash or trade-in credit for used phones.
Flipsy Local Search finds nearby stores like:
- Big brands like the Apple Store, Best Buy and GameStop
- Independent retailers, pawn shops and cell phone repair shops
- Kiosks (ecoATM)
Though local stores often pay less than online trade-in companies, they offer benefits like instant payouts and zero wait time for shipping. Those features could be attractive to people who want to quickly offset some of the cost of a new iPhone 8 or iPhone X.
Flipsy Local Search augments Flipsy.com’s existing suite of free tools, which include:
- Real-time buyback price comparisons
- Phone bluebook values
- Pricing histories
- Price lock information
To try it out, search for your phone on Flipsy.com. On the search results page, you can compare trade-in offers, see private market values, or click the blue “Find stores near you…” button. Enter your zip code and search radius, and Flipsy.com will give you a list of local buyers – complete with addresses and contact information.
