NextWorth Trade-in Service goes Retail

Earlier this summer, I posted a short news article about the NextWorth trade-in service. It prompted an interesting discussion about their valuation practices. Some people complained that they were given low offers after sending in their old devices. Well now NextWorth is taking their service to local retail stores like Target. You can walk in with a 32GB 3rd Generation iPod Touch and receive up to $132 credit which provides over 44 percent savings on the purchase of a brand new 32GB 4th Generation Touch, which retails for $299. I’m curious if more people will try this service now that it doesn’t require shipping the device and waiting for the offer. What do you think? Will you try it now?

    I think most likely not. Since the birth of Craigslist, I think most people will opt to sell it for more money and get the cash same day.

    Yeah, go ahead and use craigslist, but try to avoid getting killed! A Target gift card on the spot is virtually just as good as cash.

    NextWorth is a scammer when it comes to mailing in your items for credit. There is no disputing this.

    But in-store trades are the way to go, if this is true, because it’s through the retail store employees and not NextWorth employees, and they certainly can’t lie and say your item was lost in the mail. And if they try to lowball you, you can actually decline and leave.

    Take My Mac is an excellent place to sell Apple devices, such as iPhones, Macs, iPads, etc. They’re pretty on top of things and provide an excellent experience. Honestly, they’re 10000x better than the big boys like Buy My Tronics and Gazelle.
    The site is http://takemymac.com if you are looking to sell iPhone or sell Mac.
