It’s Black Friday month, which means some of the best iPhone, MacBook, iPad, and Apple Watch deals of the year — so it’s time to upgrade all those old devices. But if you’re buying a new iPhone, iPad, or other Apple device for yourself or a loved one this holiday season, what are you to do with all your old gear? Why not get some cash for those devices? This month’s deals below…

There are many ways to sell your iPhone and other Apple devices and ensure they’re properly recycled or reused. For newer devices, we recommend our very own trade-in partner MyPhones Unlimited, which offers competitive trade in values (in cash!) for the full range of Apple devices — from iPhone, to iPad, to MacBook. Apple Trade In is also a popular option, and if you’re going to be purchasing a new Apple product with the funds anyway, an Apple Store gift card might not be a turn-off for you.

Other sites like Gazelle and Decluttr, or even your cellular carrier (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint all have trade in programs) might be worth checking out as well. Here’s a sampling of some of the best trade-in offers we were able to find for September…
