Do You Know About Gazelle?

Monday, May 21, 2012

My iPhone 3GS kicked the bucket you guys! I tried to resuscitate it, but to no avail. HaHa I just KNEW it would last until Apple could come out with an iPhone 5. LOL I wanted a 5! But my 3GS after 3 years of dedicated service to me thought otherwise. So I laid it to rest next to my 3G (yep i can't believe I held onto my first iPhone).

So what was this girl to do?

Well, I was on Twitter and this company Gazelle pops up in the newsfeed stating they will BUY your iPhone (and OTHER ELECTRONICS). What!?! I can get cash for my electronics? Tell me MORE! Let me let you in on the process.

Step 1: GO to the Gazelle website. Input what electronics you want to get rid of (iPhone, iPad, Blackberry etc.) and what condition they're in (broken, good or flawless). They'll give you an estimate of what they'll pay you! Hmmm, my new iPhone 4S is worth $340...Hmm phone or money?...$340 sounds good right now! HaHaHa Just messing with y'all! HaHaHa The offer Gazelle gives you is good for 30 days!



Step 2: Set your iPhone back to factory standards (which will erase everything) or have your cell phone provider do it.


Step 3: Ship the package of electronics yourself OR Gazelle can send you a USPS Priority Box and Packing Slip (which I did). Put all your stuff in the box and drop off at your local post office. Postage is already PAID. I love you Gazelle!


Step 4: You can check into your Gazelle account or they will send you emails updating you through the process. They will tell you when they received your package, when your electronics were inspected, how much you will be paid, and when you will be paid. It took less than a week for me to complete the entire process and get paid. I received $145!!!


So, I used the extra cash to buy a new iPhone! 
Hello 4S! Do you guys like my new vintage lamp? 
A cute find on Etsy! Only $65 bucks! It has Paris stamped on the edges! HaHa

Stay tuned for tomorrow's blog post! 
I had to pick a cell phone cover! 
Can't wait for you to see what I got!
Have a Great Monday!

I totally need this! I have the iphone 3g too and it's a mess. It's so slow and ancient. My contract with Tmobile is up in August, so I'll probably be buying my new on then!

I actually used Gazelle to sell my Droid Incredible when I upgraded to an iPhone. It was super easy to use, LOVE your cellphone cover by the way. It couldn't get any cuter :)
