I had two separate trade-ins over several months last year. Both times, they were running extra incentives for trading in Apple devices. My first iPad was initially reported to have bad scratches on the rear of the device. I asked for a second-look and photos of the alleged damage.
The second-look email said there were no scratches on the rear, but scratches on the display. I sent a follow-up message requesting (again) photos.
The third email clarified that there were no scratches, but the display had dead spots. They attached a blurry photo that looked OK to me, except for what looked like bright spots from the overhead light.
Each time, they asked if I wanted to accept a reduction in the originally quoted trade-in value. Finally, I asked them to send it back. To their credit, they offer that option at their expense. I received it back (serial numbers matched, so no funny business) and took it to Best Buy to trade in with no issues and only a few dollars less than the original Gazelle offer. Downside is that it was a gift card vs. a check.
I tried them a second time to see if my experience was a fluke. Same thing happened — they reported scratches on the rear and offered a reduced amount. When I asked for photos and mentioned this was the second time they‘ve identified damage that they haven’t been able to prove, I promptly received a “second look” email stating that the trade in was fine and they were sending me the original trade-in value.
Not sure I’ll trust them for a third try, but fortunately not in the market for an iPad yet...
