Tech experts say one of the best times to buy that new phone you’ve been thinking about is soon after a new iPhone launches. Since the unveiling of the newest iPhone generally occurs in the fall, that’s typically one of the best times to make your purchase.
But whether you want the newest possible phone, or prefer to buy an older device, there are ways to avoid long lines and save money. One way is for consumers to turn to eBay, especially since the latest iPhone could be tough to find at other locations, once the item is made available.
In addition to shopping for the new iPhone on eBay, consumers will also be able to sell their previous generation smartphones and build up funds for a new phone purchase. If you’re getting ready to upgrade to iPhone 8, you can easily make the most money by selling your previous generation iPhone with eBay’s simplified listing flow.
A smartphone is purchased every 5 seconds on eBay. Immediately following the launch of the iPhone 6s, the number of sold iPhone 6/6 plus devices increased by 23%. Nearly 652 iPhones sold per hour on eBay during the first weekend of iPhone 6 availability.*
With eBay’s price guarantee, sellers in the U.S. who list an eligible phone may even be offered a guaranteed trending price when their phone sells. If it sells for less, eBay will cover the difference with an eBay coupon plus a $20 eBay gift card. You can also discover what your phone is worth instantly using the selling flow[ebay.com].
