How BuyBackWorld's service works

To begin, first lock in your trade-in price by visiting BuyBackWorld's website, where you will be asked to assess the physical and operational condition of your device. A few days after locking in your price quote, a pre-paid shipping box will show up on your doorstep. You'll then have 30 days before you need to pack the device securely in the box and drop it in the mail. Alternately, you can use your own shipping box and simply print and affix a pre-paid shipping label from BuyBackWorld's website during the price lock process.

Once your device passes inspection, BuyBackWorld will send payment within two business days. If your price quote changes for any reason upon inspection, you'll receive an email and if you're not 100% satisfied, they'll return it to you for free (BuyBackWorld is known to be gentle when inspecting trades, however). Also, if you choose to lock in a price quote today but change your mind about sending in your device, that's fine too. There's no binding obligation. Similarly, if you were to ever lock in a price-lock on a trade-in and have it expire before you can submit your device, you can simply lock in a new offer.

10% bonus on iPad trades valued over $75 at Gazelle



Gazelle iPad trade bonus



Gazelle, another well-known buyback service, is also offering Apple users a cash bonus on iPad trades. Now through April 2, readers can pocket a 10% bonus on all iPad trades valued at $75 or more. No coupon code is necessary to take advantage of the deal. Please note, this post contains affiliate links and AppleInsider may be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking through the links.

Why use a buyback service?

Using a buyback service as opposed to selling your device on eBay or Craigslist has its advantages. First, there are no upfront costs since shipping a phone or tablet to BuyBackWorld or Gazelle, leaders in the buyback space, is free. You'll also get 30 days to send in your trade-in. Factor in the amount of time it takes to set up, administer and deal with buyers on eBay or Craigslist, and the simplicity of a buyback service is even more appealing.
