Need Cash for a Thunderbolt? Sell Your DROID Through eBay’s New Instant Sale

We may earn a commission when you click links to retailers and purchase goods. More info.

This email landed in my inbox yesterday and I wasn’t really sure what to do with it.  Apparently, eBay is doing some extra promoting of their new “Instant Sale” where they are looking to get you out of your current phone in exchange for cash so you can buy something new.  The promo has i*hone on Verizon written all over it and is likely the reason they are spreading the word on it, but we all know you’d use the cash for a Thunderbolt, right?

All you have to do is head to the Instant Sale page, pick your current device and the condition it’s in, and an amount is spit out.  From there, you can accept instant offers from resellers, print out a free shipping label and then welcome in cash to your Paypal account.

Some of the offers I’m seeing:

  • DROID X – $200
  • DROID 2 – $181
  • DROID 1 – $162
  • DROID Incredible – $180
  • DROID Pro – $161
  • DROID 2 Global – $183
  • DROID Eris – $103

As far as I can tell, this thing is legit, but it is eBay.

Anyone actually tried this?

Cheers Nick!
