Trade in your old Apple Watch. We pay the highest prices

by Leander Kahney September 22, 2017

If you just got a new Apple Watch Series 3 (or are about to), you should think about trading in your old watch.

Cult of Mac has a popular gadget buyback program that pays more for used Apple Watches than competing trade-in services, and it’s a lot easier and safer than Craigslist or eBay.

Cult of Mac’s buyback program pays more

With the new Series 3 watches on sale Friday, now is a great time to think about upgrading. We’ve teamed up with a U.S. recycling company to offer what we believe is the highest-paying buyback program right here at buyback.cultofmac.com.

We are confident that in almost every case, we can offer more cash than big-name trade-in companies like Gazelle, Amazon and Best Buy.

We pay cash for old iPhones, iPads, iPods, MacBooks and of course, Apple Watches. Rival buyback companies like Gazelle don’t yet offer trade-ins on the Apple Watch. It’s “coming soon,” says the company’s website.

As you can see in the chart below, in all but one case we pay more than competing services that do buy used Apple Watches, like BuyBack World and Stopoint.

Broken Apple Watch? No problem

We accept both used and broken devices — even broken Apple Watches with cracked faces.

We offer higher prices across the board, but we make especially generous offers for products with cracked screens or missing bands, which some other buyback programs won’t touch. If you have broken devices lying around, now’s the time to trade them in.

We also take wearables from Fitbit, Jawbone and Pebble.

See for yourself

But don’t take our word for it. Please check out prices yourself. Get an obligation-free quote from our Apple Watch buyback page and then head over to BuyBack World and Stopoint to compare their prices. We are confident that we can beat them.

It’s super easy

All you have to do is click on the Apple Watch buyback page and select what kind of device you have. We’ll mail you a box with a return label already attached. As soon as we receive the device from you, we’ll mail out a check. The entire process, from submitting the form online to getting your check in the mail, usually takes about a week.

We also buy iPhones, iPads, MacBooks and even Apple TVs

We’re able to pay for a wide array of products, not just the newest ones in the best condition. We’ll pay for MacBooks from 10 years ago, iPads run over by cars, and iPhones that have been dropped in a puddle. If you have an old Apple TV, we’ll buy that too.

Our partner: MyPhones Unlimited

To bring you this new service, we teamed up with MyPhones Unlimited, a startup company based in Fayetteville, Arkansas.

With a passion for recycling and keeping e-waste out of landfills, MyPhones Unlimited has none of the overhead of big recycling companies, which spend millions of dollars on advertising every year. These savings are passed directly on to customers as higher buyback prices.

Nothing goes to landfill

Every device purchased is refurbished and resold so it can find a second home. Anything that is beyond repair is recycled. In addition to buying your used gadgets, we’ll also recycle old devices free of charge. Everything sent to MyPhones is resold, refurbished or recycled. Nothing is thrown away to leak toxins into landfills.

We hope this new program is a great new service for Cult of Mac readers.
