Don’t Forget About Trade-Ins!
If you are replacing an older Apple product, take a look at trade-ins! Apple, Best Buy, and Amazon all offer their own variations of a trade-in program where you can get cash back or a discount taken off of your purchase.
You should also check specialized services like Gazelle, which practice selling iPhone products to interested buyers and will send you cash for your old ones. This can help offset your expenses even more – but the timing can be tricky. This may be a step best saved for after Black Friday deals if you need to keep using your device. If you really want to save, then sites like Gazelle are a good place to look for used Apple devices that won’t break your budget any time of year.
