Where to trade in your iPad 2?
When the time to upgrade arrives, many people will just automatically try to sell iPad 2 and other electronic devices for cash. It’s a good decision, no doubt, because the prices of electronic good depreciate by 5% to 6% every month, so the faster you sell, the better it is.
However, many increasingly believe that trade-ins actually offer the best deal for sellers. Since sellers will usually buy a new device and make a subscription after selling their device, dealers are able to offer a better deal to them. Frequently, trade-in deals will surpass the amount sellers receive from cash sales. If you need some recommendations on the best trade-in options in the UK, check out the list below.
