eBay helps customers cash in on broken devices

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- eBay announced that its is now offering limited-time pricing for broken or damaged iPods, iPhones and iPads through its Instant Sale program. Additionally, eBay said it will offer every user that sends in their device -- broken or not -- a bonus $5 eBay gift card and a matching $5 donation to Global Green USA.

Through April 30, eBay Instant Sale will begin paying up to $150 for broken iPads, $100 for iPhones, and $50 for iPods. 

“We are thrilled with the momentum that the Instant Sale trade-in platform has seen on eBay since last fall --both from a business and an environmental perspective,” said Gregory Boutte, VP hard Goods for eBay marketplaces. “In a short period of time, we have established ourselves as a leading destination for consumers looking for great value for their electronics. This Earth Day, we are looking to double down on that value by offering our customers even more cash incentive for using Instant Sale and ensuring their devices get responsibly recycled.”
