NextWorth is a gadget buyback program we've had our eye on ever since they offered iPhone owners enough of a value for their old phones that they could upgrade to a 3G. Now, the company has expanded the types of gadgets it'll accept for resell. NextWorth now accepts old BlackBerryÃ¤ phones, digital cameras, GPS systems, video games and video game consoles in addition to the original iPodTM and iPhoneTM trade-in categories.
"We're building on past success with our iPod and iPhone trade-in program and have responded to customer requests to expand into other product categories," said Dave Chen, CEO of NextWorth. "We're now helping consumers make some extra cash from more of these devices, allowing them to upgrade to the latest and greatest gadgets and video games, while at the same time doing our part to prevent some of the 1.5 to 1.9 million tons of electronics waste disposed every year from ending up in landfills."
It only makes sense considering accepting just iPods and iPhones is severely limiting a service for gadget resell. We don't know exactly what impact NextWorth has on diverting gadgets from landfills yet, but any service like this that is expanding is good news for e-waste.
And, NextWorth is doing a good job to make it easy on consumers to use the service. The updated website is pretty streamlined. In about 90 seconds, I was able to find my digital camera on the site, click its condition, get a value of $115 and head to check out (I want to keep my camera so I didn't test the rest of the process...).
So if you're interested in getting cash for your gadgets, NextWorth just turned into a better resource for you.
