When Verizon announced in January that it would take on the Apple iPhone starting Feb. 10, we reported on ways to make money on old cell phones for those making the switch.
EBay and Gazelle came out on top for the most “bang for your buck,” and now we’re adding a third source to the list. NextWorth is another option for recycling cell phones – and other consumer electronics items – for cash. But unlike Gazelle and eBay, this process doesn’t require shipping and handling.
NextWorth has in-store locations at 847 Target stores nationwide. Consumers can now instantly trade in and trade up to either receive credit toward the purchase of a new iPhone 4, or a prepaid Target card for the value of the trade-in.
But for those online shopping junkies, NextWorth.com users also have the option to trade in for cash or a gift card. NextWorth operates under a “4-R” mindset: reduce, reuse, recycle and rethink. The company says one of the primary goals of its business is to reduce e-waste from landfills.
