AppleInsider readers looking to offset the cost of an Apple Watch Series 2 by selling their first-generation Apple Watch can use an exclusive coupon code this week to add an additional $10 to BuyBackWorld's industry-leading cash payouts of up to $175.

With Apple Watch Series 2 pre-orders in full swing, now is the time to lock in a price for your Apple Watch trade-in as values typically drop following the launch of a new model. BuyBackWorld, a leader in the electronics buyback industry, is one of only a select few offering cash payouts for Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport models in a variety of styles (even Apple doesn't have a watch trade-in program). Plus, AppleInsider readers can score an additional $10 bonus at BuyBackWorld on top of industry leading payouts with our exclusive promo code.

To take advantage of BuyBackWorld's $10 cash bonus on any trade-in valued at $50 or more, simply use one of the pricing links below to access BuyBackWorld's website and then apply exclusive coupon code APPLEINSIDER10 (by clicking the link next to the bullhorn icon that says "Enter a promotional code"). What's more, you'll have an extended price-lock period of up to Oct. 31 before your trade-in must be dropped in the pre-paid shipping box and mailed to BuyBackWorld. And if you're ready to purchase an Apple Watch Series 2, be sure to check out our Apple Watch Price Guide for the latest deals on new models.

How BuyBackWorld's service works



iPhone trade in value BuyBackWorld


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 a grace period until Oct. 31 before you need to pack the device securely in the box and drop it in the mail to reach BuyBackWorld. 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.

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, a leader in the buyback space, is free. You'll also get over 30 days (until Oct. 31) to send in your trade-in. For those purchasing an Apple Watch (Series 1 or 2), this means you'll likely be able to keep your current device until your new Apple Watch ships. Factor in the amount of time it takes to set up, administer and deal with buyers on eBay or Craiglist, and the simplicity of a buyback service is even more appealing.



However, not all buyback programs offer cash for used devices. Apple's iPhone Trade-up program, for example, gives customers a store credit or Apple Store gift card for trades. BuyBackWorld, on the other hand, offers higher cash payouts in the form of a check, PayPal deposit, direct deposit or prepaid debit card. That means you're free to use the money to buy an iPhone 7 or anything else instead of being tied to one store. At press time, readers can get a cash payout of up to $95.00 for an Apple Watch Sport in Space Gray Aluminum with a Black Sport Band or up to $135.00 for an Apple Watch in Space Black Stainless with a Black Sport Band. It's worth noting that those who elect to be paid via a BuyBackWorld.com gift card will receive a 5 percent bonus for an even larger payout.
