Gazelle, long a popular choice for turning your used iOS device into quick cash, has opened its own certified pre-owned device store. Items in the store include iPhones, iPads, and other smartphones and tablets. Currently, the store’s inventory is limited to Apple devices, including the iPhone 4 and up, iPad 2 and up, and the iPad mini.
The benefits of Gazelle’s certified pre-owned devices include a “30-point quality inspection” and a 30 day return period with devices starting at $159. This varies from Gazelle’s existing eBay store, which lists devices for purchase with a 14 day return period and potential 20% restocking fee. Gazelle’s certified pre-owned devices also ship with original packaging while the eBay store list items without included accessories in some instances.
The store currently lists the iPhone 4 from $159, iPhone 4s from $219, iPhone 5 from $274, and iPhone 5s from $379. The site shows AT&T, Verizon, and unlocked models as being in stock. For those of you looking for a tablet, Gazelle currently has the iPad 2 starting at $249, iPad 3 from $309, iPad 4 from $339, and iPad mini from $239. These devices vary in storage capacity and color, and currently they are Wi-Fi only models.
Just as when selling your gently used devices, also be sure to shop around when buying used devices, as other reputable sellers may offer the same devices at a better price.
