First, I would really like to hear from those who have used Nextworth in the past and what kind of experience you had with them.... I am going to trade in my unlocked 64GB iPhone 5 to either Gazelle or Nextworth. However, Gazelle is only offering me $340 for it while Nextworth will give me $451 with the promo code that I have. I've used Gazelle several times in the past and always got the first offer along with a very fast payment return from them. I have never used Nextworth and find that their reviews are both good and bad so I'm not sure if the extra money is worth the risk of selling it to them or not. I will not sell my iP5 on CL or eBay so please don't mention them. Thanks for any advice you can offer me with this.

GameStop is 366 cash or 460 in store credit

Or 10 more if you include the lightning cable

Or if you're doing a trade in use Amazon. The only downside is you only get paid as an Amazon gift card. But I shop there a lot.
Thanks Karen. Amazon wouldn't work for me as I don't buy a lot from them and would rather have the cash.

Thanks. I will check Gamestop, but usually they are pretty cheap with what they offer.

I wonder if the retail stores do on the spot trade-ins though at the time of purchase of a new iPhone. That could be very convenient.

That would definitely be convenient. I wasn't planning on doing a on the spot trade in, though. As I want to see whether I like the new iPhone or not before sending in my current iPhone 5. I like Gazelle and NextWorth for the fact that both of them offer a 30 day lock in offer. This gives me time to check the new 5S out before sending my 5 in.

HIgh offer prices don't always get paid out in the end.

Reseller ratings has reviews of both:

Gazelle - 9.7 out of 10 (1600 reviews) Gazelle Reviews - gazelle.com Ratings at ResellerRatings
Nextworth - .67 out of 10 (15 reviews) NextWorth Reviews - nextworth.com Ratings at ResellerRatings

For in-store programs, they are convenient if you are buying there but usually don't pay as well as online and require you to renew your carrier contract. More strings and less money than selling online.

Thanks for posting the scores. I've pretty much ruled out going with Nextworth due to what I have read about them so far.

Peligro, I stopped by my local GameStop after church this morning and they confirmed what you posted here. The guy said my iPhone 5 looked like it was brand new and offered to give me $366 cash for it, or $460 store credit. I'll make my final decision next week, but right now I think I'll probably take their cash offer. It's very convenient since I don't have to mail it in and wait for someone to inspect it not knowing if they will even give me the original price that they quoted.

I highly recommend Gazelle. I've sold 5 devices through them and it always works flawlessly. Tell them what you have and be honest about the condition, don't say your device is flawless if its scratched.

Mine have always been in like-new condition because if Otterboxes. They send you the box in 2-3 days, you ship it back, then you have a check in about 5-10 days. I've never gotten a quote and then not gotten that number paid out. You just have to be honest and realistic about your device condition.

Agreed. I have also used Gazelle many times and always got the price for the best condition because all my devices still look like new when I trade them it. However, this time I'm going with GameStop for my trade as they are offing more and I don't have to mail my iPhone in and wait to get paid.....
