Gazelle, the electronics trade-in site, has announced that it will lock in trade-in prices for your old iPhone now, and not require you to send the iPhone to them until your new iPhone arrives.
The program allows you to get what is expected to be a higher quoted price now, and still use it while waiting for the new iPhone model(s) to be released. Gazelle predicts trade-in prices for the iPhone 5s will drop by up to 25% in the month following Apple’s announcement of the next-generation iPhone.
Another reason to check-in with Gazelle to set your trade-in value is that the company is temporarily raising prices offered for the iPhone 5s, offering up to $350 for an iPhone 5s in “perfect” condition.
Check Gazelle’s website for more information, and to lock in your offer. As always, other trade-in sites may offer similar or better trade-in plans, so be sure to check around before locking yourself in.
