Leading Trade-in Values for Apple iPad Mar 03, 2011 | NextWorth

NextWorth historically provides industry-leading trade-in values for both online and in-store customers. With the price of a new iPad 2 at $499, consumers can earn at least half the cost toward their upgrade – and up to $390 - by trading in an original model. There is no need to trade-in your accessories with NextWorth - consumers can keep them and use the accessories with their upgraded device. At NextWorth.com, customers have the choice of cash or a gift card when they trade in. NextWorth offers FREE, fully-insured UPS shipping service to all online customers.

Apple products tend retain value more than other brands, and the iPad is no exception. NextWorth provides great values for used iPads that are in “Light Wear” condition (the unit is fully functional, the display is flawless but the back might have slight scratches). Current trade-in values on NextWorth for iPads with “Light Wear” (as of 3/3/11) are on average 9% higher than other values offered in the marketplace:

• iPad 16GB Wifi: $255
• iPad 32GB Wifi: $285
• iPad 64GB Wifi: $310
• iPad 16GB Wifi + 3G: $298
• iPad 32GB Wifi + 3G: $350
• iPad 64GB Wifi + 3G: $390

However consumers are encouraged to act quickly. Historically trade-in values of the previous generation product tend to decline as much as 30% when the new product is made available.

Thinking of upgrading to a new Smartphone?


The moment we buy a new Smartphone, it will start to loose it's value. However with NextWorth's trade-in program, Smartphone owners can reduce the overall cost of their ownership.

When selecting the right smartphone, one needs to consider which phone will best retain it's resell value over time. To help consumers, we have developed the " NextWorth Trade-in Value Index". This index shows the current NextWorth trade-in value as a percentage of the original retail value. The average retail sales price ranges between $499 and $699 for a new smartphone. In our index we have included smartphones that were introduced between May and July 2010.

The iPhone 4 32GB and 16GB top the NextWorth index. Both phones can currently be sold for over 60% of their retail value. Thats good news for AT&T iPhone subscribers that want to switch to the new Verizon iPhone 4. They will receive more than the $199 subsidized price of a 2 year Verizon iPhone 4 plan.
