Nah.

I’d rather Play the saftey card of just trading in with Apple direct. No hassles, straight-forward and not dealing with shady tactics from unknown buyers. I don’t need to make ‘top dollar’ for my electronic products.

I mean, Swappa is great for getting scammed, if that’s your thing.
If you have common sense you can see the red flags of getting scammed. But hey, your devices, your choice. These trade in prices are ridiculous compared to market, I’d rather keep in a drawer or as backup than trading in for this

More reason for me to keep my iPhone 11 Pro Max 256 and not upgrade to the latest and greatest. Works fine. :rolleyes:

Not sure this is how inflation is supposed to work. Or maybe it is: the little guy gets screwed, the corporations get more revenue.

Every few months there is a news article about Apple reducing trade-in value. What's next, you pay Apple to take in your old iMac?

Deflation when trading in, but that same item after refurbishment experiences inflation. It’s magic!
