‘Tis the season for getting new computers, gadgets, phones, and other tech devices!  If you’re lucky enough to be getting something new, what do you do with your old one?  Sometimes, gifting it to a kid, sibling, or friend is an option, and it gives them something new in the process…but that’s not always a feasible option.  There are several places online that your current tech devices can be sold giving you either cash or gift cards/store credit for the trade in value.
