Got a new Apple Watch? Now get the best price for your old one

Now that you have your shiny new Apple Watch Series 5, it’s time to make back some of the money you just spent by selling your old model. But don’t take it to the Apple Store.

Apple will offer you just a fraction of what your old Apple Watch is really worth. Make a lot more by selling yours to Cult of Mac instead.

Apple products famously hold their value well — much better than competing consumer electronics. But if you’re not careful, it’s easy to get ripped off.

Avoid Apple trade-ins

For instance, here’s what Apple currently pays for Watch trade-ins:

  • Apple Watch Series 4 — up to $110
  • Apple Watch Series 3 — up to $70
  • Apple Watch Series 2 — up to $50
  • Apple Watch Series 1 — up to $30

These are pretty shameful figures. And they don’t take into account the fact that you might end up getting even less if your old Apple Watch isn’t in pristine condition.

But there is a way you could earn a lot more — perhaps even double your money.

Sell your old Apple Watch to Cult of Mac

Cult of Mac pays a lot more for unwanted Apple Watch units, and we won’t turn you away if yours is broken and in need of repair. Here’s what you could make if you avoid the Apple Store:

  • Apple Watch Series 4 — up to $240
  • Apple Watch Series 3 — up to $110
  • Apple Watch Series 2 — up to $60
  • Apple Watch Series 1 — up to $20
  • Apple Watch Series 0 — up to $10

See? It makes no sense to sell your old Watch to Apple.

Why Cult of Mac’s buyback program is best

Sure, Apple recycles all trade-in devices in an environmentally-friendly manner. But Cult of Mac does the same.

We refurbish devices that can be sold on, and recycle those that can’t. We promise that nothing we receive will end up in landfill. What’s more, we won’t tell you where you can spend your money.

Unlike Apple, which will pay you in credit that can only be spent in the Apple Store, we pay real cash. You can spend it wherever you like.

How does the buyback program work?

Interested? Here’s how Cult of Mac’s buyback program works:

  1. You visit our buyback page and get a quote for your old Watch.
  2. We send you a box with a prepaid return label so that you can ship your Watch straight to us for free.
  3. Once we’ve received your device, we’ll issue a check that you’ll receive in around one week.

It’s that simple. And every quote we give is good for 14 days, which gives you plenty of time to get used to your new model before parting ways with its predecessor.

So, what are you waiting for? Find out how much your old Apple Watch is really worth today.

Nice band. Worked well. Need to be sure to watch the video on using the tool to adjust the band.

never receive my purchase

I contacted the store but they never replayed to me i don't recommend to buy here!

Sadie, the elder, says .....

Not only is this iWatch such a practical means of holding my watch while charging, it’s a hoot - looks like my original Mac. I love it.

The case doesn’t totally align but it does it’s job. The part that stinks is that it attracts lint and dust because it’s silicone.

Great tidy solution

You know what happens, all your devices need a charger. 2 iPhones, an Apple Watch, iPad and more. My old solution was fast charger with 4 USB outlets plugged in to an outlet in the kitchen. Worked, but not pretty.

Let me start by saying this charger looks great. I got rid of all the other cables and keep this out in the kitchen. Much tidier! Phones charge quickly. Apple watch does too but you to be careful that it goes on right. Also, I have a metal band on mine so I have to close it before I put it on the stand or else it would rest on the screen of the phone below it.
