If you have extra smartphones or tablets sitting around that you're not using, and you're looking to make a few bucks but don't want to deal with eBay or Craigslist, an alternative is available. GameStop has expanded the list of devices they accept for trade in to include BlackBerry smartphones as well as Android and iOS devices. Though the list isn't all inclusive, there are several models of BlackBerry included and trade-in and cash value vary for each one. As expected, if you choose to get in-store credit versus cash, you will get more value for your trade, and the more accessories, packaging, and so on that you have with your device, the more cash/credit you can expect to receive.
While you probably won't get the same value from your device that you could likely get by selling it outright on eBay, Craigslist, etc, it is another option worth looking into, especially if you're looking to get some video games, consoles, or the like. You can read the full press release below, and if you're interested in seeing what your devices are worth, head on over to the link below and get an offer now.
