iPhone SE and iPad Pro Trade In at BuyBackWorld


10% Cash Bonus on all Apple Products Valued at $50+



BuyBackWorld has been a fixture in our Trade-In Payout Guide for several years and operates its electronics buyback service in very much the same manner as Gazelle, but often paying slightly higher rates. On top of this, BuyBackWorld is now offering AppleInsider readers an additional 10% payout bonus on all Apple product trade-ins valued at $50 or more when you use the links below and apply the promo code APPLEINSIDER10 during the price lock process (where it says "Enter a promotional code"). The same promo code will also work on non-Apple trade-ins as well.

With the 10% cash bonus, BuyBackWorld is currently paying out up to $286 on iPad Air 2 trade-ins, up to $220 on iPad Airs, up to $203 on 4th Gen iPads, up to $133 on 3rd Gen iPads, and up to $99 on iPad 2s. For iPhones with the 10% bonus, it's paying up to $330 on iPhone 6 trade-ins, up to $154 on iPhone 5s, up to$88 on iPhone 5c, up to $93 on iPhone 5, and up to $49 on iPhone 4S.

How It Works



To begin, you first lock in your trade-in price by visiting BuyBackWorld's website, where you will be asked to assess the physical and operational condition of your device. A few days after locking in your price quote, a pre-paid shipping box will show up on your doorstep. You'll then have a 30-day grace period from the time you lock in your trade-in offer to the time you need to pack the device securely in the box and drop it in the mail. Alternately, you can use your own shipping box and simply print and affix a pre-paid shipping label from BuyBackWorld's website during the price lock process.

Once BuyBackWorld receives your old device, the company will issue a check within 10 business days. You can instead choose to be paid more quickly by selecting PayPal as your payment method.

Below is a list BuyBackWorld's current payouts for Apple's various iPad and iPhone models before factoring in the 10% bonus:

    The iPhone trade ins are horrible. Apple Store is offering more.
    I was going to post the exact same thing. They are offering $210 (that includes 10% bonus credit) for an excellent condition iPhone 6 64GB from Sprint. Apple's trade-in on their own website just gave me an offer of $300! Why in the world would anyone do this? I also sold my wife's gold 32GB iPhone 5S on eBay for $225 in about 10 minutes.  They are offering $87! I've yet to see a third party trade-in site that is worth it. Sometime carriers have good trade-ins and Apple does now as well but sites like this and Gazelle are rip offs (IMO).

    The only trade in program aside from Apple's that I have ever seen offer a decent price is Amazon. I sold my 128GB iPhone 6 a few months back for 500 when they were selling on eBay for 550 or so. Was a good deal. They pay in Amazon credit but I was getting ready to buy 400 dollars worth of rotors and brake pads for my truck anyway so it worked out nicely.

    I traded in 3 iPhone 5c's that I bought for $50 a piece through Facebook and got $200 a piece in Apple gift cards.  That gets me a 64gb SE with AppleCare+ for $150!  I'm glad I got them sent into Brightstar before the SE announcement, since they dropped the trade-in price to $100 that day.

    You can get more money for your used iPhone on eBay or just sell to your friends or a family member. There are also other options like Swapa and CellCashier, where you can get more cash for your used or old iPhone.
