Has anyone else seen this? I discovered I have two old cell phones that together I can trade in for more than $40 in Amazon gift cards. Another great way to buy books for my Kindle!

Check out the details here:

hmmm.... does it count if I start swiping them to pay for my books? ;D

My old phone (before my current phone), which I had for 3 1/2 years is so old I don't see it listed.
I am beginning to think this one is not going to work for me either!! :'(

I eventually found it, but it isn't worth anything...(sniff). I guess I shouldn't complain. I got the phone for free from my cousin, who thought I needed an emergency phone when I was in high school. (my parents thought I was going to lose a phone...my phone lasted longer than theirs and I had mine for a year and a half longer.)

We have two old LG phones but ours aren't worth anything for this.  It was sure worth a try!! Thanks so much for the info anyway!  We will donate our old phones to be used by women who are victims of domestic violence in our community.  So... if your cell phone isn't worth anything monetarily.... you might want to check in your area to see if there are any organizations that might be able to put it to good use.

Wow! I can get $110.64 for my iPhone. I'll have to ask my husband if he wants to do this...

I can also get some money for an old Motorola Razr we have lying around. So a total of $128.18 in Amazon gift cards. Yahoo, that'll keep me reading for awhile!

Yep...I had one lying around also.  Packed it up and sending it in.  I wasn't sure what I should do with it anyway...Thanks for the heads up on this one.

Oddsox - Thanks for the link! We've got several cell phones just laying around since we got our iPhones. I have to see if any of them would fetch any more on eBay, but the link you provided is definitely a great help! :)

Cheers, Mike
You're welcome, Mike. I'm glad to see some people are able to get a few bucks out of it and some even more than a few. Such a deal!

Darn mine aren't worth anything- but they'll plant a tree. The school by us collects them, but the screen isn't working on one so I don't think they can use it- will have to see.

I wanted to report back on this...

I logged into the Flipswap site, got a price for my iPhone and a Motorola Razr. I printed out the receipt, packed everything carefully, per their instructions, and sent it off. I made sure the receipt was in the box. I did not pay extra for insurance even though they suggested it. I mailed the box on 11/14/08.

Late yesterday (11/20/08), I received an email that the phones had been received and inspected. They passed inspection and were valued at the same amount they had originally quoted me, which is great.

The next step...I should receive an Amazon giftcard in the mail in the next 7-10 days. I'll report back again!

Another update: I just received an email from Flipswap with my gift certificate code. I went right to my amazon account, but the number in and bingo! $128.18 immediately added to my account.

Yahoo!

This is a great deal since the phones were just lying around the house. Thanks to Oddsoxx for finding this.

We gave away my Son't Ipod touch (he didn't like it and I replaced it with a new nano)... I could have had lotsof books for that! Oh well, the kid we gave it too just loves it and uses it all the time.

And actually, that's better, I think...
