Kiss Store Credit Goodbye

We don’t hold up the fun with trade-in credit. Choose between ZellePay, Cheque, Apple Gift Card, or PayPal. We make it easy to choose what you want to do with your money. Sweet cash = sweet freedom!
If we have to downgrade your buy-back quote and you are not satisfied, we will return your device at no cost to you. No questions asked. That’s our way of saying thanks for giving us a shot.
Once you’ve signed up to trade in a device, we lock your trade-in offer for 30 days. You’ll get 14 days of a price lock with most other programs.
Beware Apple Trade-in! They may

Rapid payout

We’re crazy fast. Here are the typical days to payment depending on where you live:

The other guys take two weeks to a month until you get paid.

Shipping

Drippin’ Shipping

Use our prepaid shipping label. It’s instantly ready to print and ship, no need to find a store and spend your time in a lineup. Once you’ve packaged your item, use this label to send it off to us.

Kick the Classifieds

On Kijiji, Craigslist, or Facebook Marketplace, you’ll spend time posting, negotiating, and fending off scams. Then you’ll trek across town and meet a stranger who might decide to pass on your iPhone.
Our iPhone Trade-in program gives you fast and professional service, strangers not included! Since our trade-ins are processed online, you never have to leave the comfort of your home.

Guarantee

Ironclad Guarantee

If for any reason we have to downgrade your device after inspecting it and you’re not happy, we return your device at no cost at all. Other programs may send a fraction of your initial quote without any option to appeal.

Trade in Value

Highest Trade-in iPhone payout Guaranteed.

No other carrier or Manufacturer trade-up program will offer higher value payouts for your phone. Not even Apple’s GiveBack program.

Carbon fighting machine

Carbon fighting machine

We plant one tree for every iPhone sold to us. We’ve partnered with onetreeplanted.org to plant thousands of trees across the Americas and Africa. Planting trees helps offset the impact that our electronic devices have on the planet.
Lots of our gadgets end up in landfills that shouldn’t. Most of these devices still have value and can be reused.

Your iOS device contains petroleum and other chemicals that can leach out from landfills. These chemicals get into groundwater and waterways. Plants and wildlife consume it, and so do we!

Not reusing or properly recycling our phones hurt the ecosystem. It also hurts us.Reusing our electronics is the best way to deal with e-waste. We make that happen! When reusing a device is no longer possible, our vetted recycling vendors break down the iPhone to its core elements.

Trade-in iPhone Anywhere in the United States

You’re looking to trade-in your iPhone, GizmoGrind will rock your world!
iPhones are the most expensive smartphones. Since Steve Jobs released the first iPhone, every upgrade has gotten pricier. Less in the bank for you. We can help with that!
GizmoGrind pays the most for your used iPhone. With the least amount of hassle, We help you quickly sell your old one and get your hands on a shiny new flagship model.
It’s a fresh new way to save on your next smartphone purchase instead of a 24 month or 12-month payment contract. You end up paying way more over the entire term of your contract than if you purchase the device outright.
Using the value of your old device to buy a new one makes more financial sense. You’re not paying the full cost, just the difference. Ditch the 12 payments and save!
GizmoGrind offers you more cash value than traditional methods of selling your used or broken iPhone.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does GizmoGrind Work?

GizmoGrind takes advantage of new automation technologies we’ve built in-house to streamline the trade-in process.
We can then offer the highest cash payouts for used personal electronic devices.
When you sell an Apple product to GizmoGrind, you essentially take advantage of our global distribution network. Our service is a hands-off approach to phone trade-ins and allows you to have a care-free experience.

How can you offer more than Apple and other trade-in programs?

Specializing in trade-ins since 2013 allows us to fine-tune doing this one thing right. It’s made us kind of hard to beat.
We don’t have the motive of keeping customers in our ecosystem and upselling them to the latest product. Our trade-in program has blossomed to a far more efficient system than the alternatives.
Another reason we offer more is that Apple Renew or Apple GiveBack uses various third-party partners like Phobio to process their trade-ins. These are companies just like ours. When you deal with us directly, it is one less middle man in your way.
Lastly, your trade-in has to account for a fancy apple store. We operate entirely online helps to do away with that cost and pass those savings to you.

What happens if I choose the wrong condition?

Our technicians will email or call you to offer a requote. If you're not happy with your new quote, you can request that your item be mailed back to you at no charge.

Will my personal data be safe?

Extensively training GizmoGrind Staff on data security measures is the primary way we keep your data safe. Here’s a link to a CBC article we contributed to explaining iPhone Data security.
The personal information on your device will undergo a software hard drive scramble which goes a step beyond a normal reset. Using software will ensure the following owner of your device cannot access files that once existed on your device.
Still, it is good practice to bring your device to factory settings before shipping it in. Back up your iPhone and complete a simple reset.

Where do I drop off my prepaid parcel?

You can drop it off at any USPS facility or partner locations, including any CVS locations. Search for a drop off location here

Do You Have special Mothers Day iPhone Trade-in Deals?

Mothers day trade-in offers announced by Carriers are not what you think they are. Remember, you are always getting store credit. Second, they often provide less than what you would get with a GizmoGrind iPhone trade-in, even with the Mothers Day Special.

How to Deactivate iCloud

Before selling your phone, it is essential to turn off Find My iPhone from your iCloud account.

Method 1
(if your iPhone is not broken and you can access settings)
1. Go to Settings
2. Go to Apple ID
3. Then tap iCloud
4. Tap on “sign out” and follow the prompts.

Method 2
(if your iPhone is broken or you don’t have access to it)
1. Sign in to iCloud.com on your web browser. We recommend using a desktop browser.
2. Find the device you're trading in and select erase.
3. Once erased, select Remove from Account.

Do I need to Include My SIM Card?

No. The sensitive data on your SIM card is easily retrievable. If you have another SIM card, destroy the old one.

Do I need my IMEI to use your site?

No. Just state the model and condition, and we’ll confirm the details once it arrives.

Does Apple Pay a Fair Price for iPhone Trade-ins?

Although the trade in value is competitive, It’s still lower than our trade in offers on average. This is in addition to not giving its customers the option for a cash trade in.
When added together, we conclude that an Apple Trade in is in fact not worth it. There is no added convenience, and no added value.

Can I trade in a locked iPhone?

Yes, GizmoGrind does accept trade-ins locked to
● Verizon
● AT&T
● Sprint
● T-Mobil
● And pretty much any other device carrier is accepted.
You can select any device and carrier, we’ll confirm upon receipt.

How do You Compare to BestBuy’s iPhone Trade in program?

We don’t! Best buy is an exclusively instore experience taking up your time. Boy do we all need any extra time we can get.
Also, BestBuy will only pay your via Gift Card. A Gift card limiting your to their store. Why not get paid more than whatever BestBuy is offering and take advantage of a cash payment instead. So you can do whatever you want with your moola.
