Broken iPods Riches - Don't Tell Anyone!
A month ago, Apple announced that it has sold over 100 million iPods worldwide. Unfortunately, they don't last forever, and tempting new models are always just around the corner. Which is where buymybrokenipod.com comes in.
The young start-up offers consumers a very simple way to sell their broken or unused iPods: after indicating which model they'd like to sell and what condition it's in, the website gives an instant price-quote. Send it in, and payment is transferred via PayPal within 24 hours after the iPod has been received.
There are alternatives: used or broken iPods could be sold on eBay, where hundreds of Apple's music players are listed for sale for parts or refurbishing. But many consumers can't be bothered with finding out how to list a product, and don't want to deal with potential customers. buymybrokenipod.com provides an effortless alternative. How they make money?
The iPods are usually sold in bulk to small businesses who fix them for a living, replacing cracked screens, expired batteries and dead hard-drives, and reselling them to consumers. Generally, iPods received by buymybrokenipod.com are in good condition.
P.S. By the way, I've got $100 worth of free unused lext links that expire this Sunday, if you have any use for them, simply use my free coupon. First come first served.
