Is it possible to sell back my mobile phone, iPod®, tablet, laptop or other tech device?

Yes, it is. If you would like to sell back a used laptop, iPhone®, smartphone, iPad®, tablet, eReader, iPod or MP3 player, visit and follow the instructions, or visit one of our Staples® retail locations. Your payment will be issued as a Staples gift card that you can use online or at any Staples store. Click here for more information.

Was this answer helpful? No

If I sell back a tech device, why is the price online different from the one in store?

Online trade-in utilizes real-time pricing based on a marketplace with multiple buyers. It’s based on customers’ description of the device, rather than inspection by a Staples associate. In store, a Staples associate will visually inspect and adjust pricing based on imperfections.

Was this answer helpful? No

I was quoted a price for my trade-in; I shipped my device, then received a notification that the original price I was quoted was revised. Why is this?

We inspect your device to make sure the condition and model match what you described in your order. A revised offer for your device would only occur if:

  • The item we receive is in different condition than indicated in the original offer, or
  • The device we receive is a model that is worth less or more than the device indicated in the original offer

If you receive a revised offer, you'll have five days to accept or decline the new offer price.

  • If you accept the new offer, we will issue your Staples gift card within two business days
  • If you decline the new offer, we will return your device to you free of charge within two business days

Was this answer helpful? No

What if I receive a requote for a trade-in and I want my item back?

If you disagree with a revised quote, you can decline it in one of two ways: 

  1. By selecting Accept or Decline in the revised offer email we sent you
  2. By going to the Track Order page and looking up your order by order number or the email address you used to place your order

Once you decline the revised offer, we'll mail back your device to you free of charge within two business days. 


Was this answer helpful? No

Why can I get my money right away in store and not online?

In store, we can inspect and appraise the device instantly, whereas online it needs to be shipped in and inspected before you can receive your Staples eGift card.
