Ways to Make Quick Cash: Cash in your old electronics

Posted: Updated:

Just as you're getting used to your new iPhone or Android, the next upgrade is probably just around the corner. Keeping up with technology can be pricey. Here's how to get some quick cash back for your old electronics.

The Eco-ATM spits out cash for your old cell phones, iPods or mp3 players, which are then re-sold or recycled.

You can also choose to get store credit or donate the money to charity.

San Diego locations include Fashion Valley Mall and most of the Westfield Shopping Plazas, among others.

Many cell phone owners look forward to their next upgrade, which according to most wireless companies, comes about every two years.

A new iPhone can set you back a few hundred dollars each time you get a new one. Any many users like to switch to the newest version immediately, instead of waiting until the old one dies on them.

So go dig out your old devices, and get paid for a change on your next shopping trip. You may have more free money hiding in your desk drawers than you realize.
