Gazelle shutting down used device trade-in program next year


The long-time refurbishing company #Gazelle has announced today that it is shutting down its popular trade-in program. #This program had allowed people to trade in their old iPhones, iPads, and #Macs for cash.

#Gazelle made the announcement in an email to customers today, saying that the trade-in program will shut down beginning on #February 1, 2021. #Customers have until #January 31 to receive a quote and complete a trade in, #Gazelle says.

#Beginning #February 1st, 2021, we will no longer be offering our trade-in option on #Gazelle. #If you have a trade-in that is in process right now, your trade-in will continue as planned. #You can also still log in to your account here to view the status of your current trade-ins.

#You will still be able to buy high quality used electronics for a fraction of the price from our online store. #We’re excited to continue to help you save with awesome prices on used smart devices!

#Instead of the trade-in program, #Gazelle will focus on its ecoATM kiosks that pay “immediate cash for used smartphones and tablets.” #To date, the company says that these kiosks have collected more than 25 million devices, but the obvious caveat here is that they typically pay much lower than full-fledged trade in programs.

#While #Gazelle doesn’t offer details on why it is shutting down its trade-in business, the space has become much more competitive over the last several years. #Perhaps most notably, #Apple makes it easier than ever to trade in old iPhones, iPads, #Macs, and #Apple #Watches for instant credit on new device purchases.
