Need some extra cash? Have old electronics collecting dust at your house? You’re in luck because Buymytronics.com can help you with both.
A few months ago I upgraded my iPhone 4 to the iPhone 5. The iPhone 4 had worked well for me for about 2 years or so. I was at my wit’s end with my home button not working properly. Hitting the home button 8-10 times for it to work got old fast. I felt the pain of spending the money for the new phone after though. I decided I’d look around and see if I could get some money for my old phone. I searched online for a place that would give me some money back for my phone. I found buymytronics.com pretty easily.
The way the site works is very easy. Step 1. Find you item, and get a quote. It asks you what condition your phone is in; new, working, or broken. Step 2. Create an account by entering your email. Step 3. Choose payment method; check or PayPal. Step 4.Choose shipping options; print address label or send me a box. Step 5. Confirm order information. Step 6. Sit back and wait for your money.
Buymytronics.com lets you know up front that the amount you are given is strictly a quote. Once they receive your item and the quote may change based on condition your phone is in when it is received. I chose working for my phone and received a fairly high quote. I wasn’t sure what was considered in the difference between working and broken. They deemed my phone as broken because the home button didn’t work properly. They gave me a new quote. I was then given the choices of accepting the new quote or having my phone returned to me. I wasn’t surprised by getting a lower quote I knew the home button was broken. I decided to accept the quote and get what money out of it I could.
Now you might be thinking what if this is a scam. Trust me I thought about that too. The way I looked at it was I can let the phone sit around my house or sending it off hoping to get money back. The company didn’t ask for anymore information than my name and address. I didn’t pay for shipping. I figured that if they got my phone and didn’t send my money I wouldn’t really be out anything. In the end I received a check for $61. It might not seem like much but it was definitely worth it to me. I feel like I ended up with a pretty good deal. I used a phone for over 2 years and then got a little money back for it. That’s good enough for me.
