Trade In Arbitrage – Books, DVDs, and Electronics OH MY!

I can’t say it enough. I love trade-ins on Amazon.

A few weeks back, I was at a Packers game and I smashed my iPhone in the chair (still don’t know how it happened). I was going to toss it into the trash since it was barely working, but I thought I should think about trading it in.

So I took a look at a few different sites and I found that Amazon would give me $60 for a damaged iPhone 6 (highest around). I sent it in with the prepaid label and then I got this email.

I was sent $125.05 for an iPhone that was broken. Talk about a nice surprise.

I have always been a fan of the trade-in game. From this example of me making a guaranteed $20+ in a few minutes to one of my favorite extensions of all time Textbook Arbitrage.

That being said, I always knew there was an opportunity to expand this business model a bit.

The biggest issue is time. And it always will be.

I was talking to my dad and he started looking into this idea in terms of flipping items from eBay to Amazon trade-in. And then we created this:

And here’s the deal. This model isn’t going to make you a millionaire. It’s not. (Don’t believe anything these guys say – Textbook Money from Luke Sample and Jon Shugart). This model is really designed for those who are tight on cash and have more time than money.

If you are interested in the tool (It’s $15.99 and well worth it), you can get it here: https://gumroad.com/a/496940147/yxji
