Remember the days when you would have to beg someone to recycle your diagnosed-as-obsolete cell phones, computers and other electronics? Drive miles and miles to visit that charitable organization that would – if the volunteers felt like it – take in your old desktop and television? Pray that there be a recycling box at Best Buy where you could drop the last generation cell phone?…
Well, it appears that there may be a better way to do these things now: NextWorth.com‘s tagline says it all “Recycle your old electronics for cash“.
Our portfolio of product exchanges provides a simple and immediate solution for consumers who desire to re-capture a large portion of the hidden value trapped within their high-demand products, but don’t need the hassle of selling it themselves.
I like that, the “hidden-value”. Because I always suspected that these electronics were still worth something. But who was going to tell me that? Indeed, by using NextWorth’s Instant Quote box, I just found out that my iPhone 3 (I’m still holding out for the iPhone 5, if the battery can make it…) would be worth $145 today at Nextworth’s prices. That’s about 3 to 4 times the value I would have guessed.
NextWorth takes in iPhones, and iAnythings, other cell phone brands, laptops, cameras, games and game consoles, etc… If you like the value they give to your electronic gadget (which value will probably top dollar in that market), all you have to do is send it in. NextWorth will then inspect the item to verify its condition and pay you accordingly via Paypal, check or gift card. Very convenient. And, if you are a frequent Target store shopper, many of their stores now accept NextWorth trade-ins for instant store credit (See the participating Target stores here).
What does NextWorth do with all these electronic devices? They test them, wipe out the data and resell them. If the items cannot be sold, they recycle responsibly.
So, I say, gather all your old, unused or unwanted electronics and see what you can get for them. Might be found money… That and, you’d be doing the environment a favor too, by keeping those electronics out of the e-waste pool – you know, so the electronic scrap components don’t further contaminate landfills or third world countries where are e-waste is shipped.
