This App Helps You Get Rid Of Old Tech Gadgets And Sell Them For Cash
CDs and DVDs are pretty much a thing of the past. Between Spotify and Netflix, we’ve got all the music and movies we need on demand. Still, these items — plus other old tech gadgets — take up space in our apartments.
If you’re thinking of getting rid of them, don’t just settle for a garage or yard sale. Download the Decluttr app and get some serious cash back in your pocket instead. You’ll be able to clean out your home and make some solid money at the same time.

Sending your items to Decluttr is insanely easy.
Once you scan your items into the app, choose their condition (a cracked cell phone screen would make the device “faulty”) and see what Decluttr will pay you in exchange for them, get them ready to ship them ASAP. Make sure you have a sturdy box that allows for the items to be packaged securely inside — you don’t want your old cell phone or CDs to crack on their way to Decluttr.
Pro Tip: Decluttr suggests using the original packaging for your devices so they’re extra protected. If you don’t have the original packaging, use bubble wrap.
You have 10 days to confirm the price for your CDs, DVDs and games in the app and ship them out. For tech items, you have 28 days. And if you change your mind and want the device back, Decluttr will send it to you, free of charge.
Once your devices are ready to go, just tape the unique shipping label that Decluttr sends you in your welcome pack to the package and take it to a local UPS Store. You can send more than one device in the same box as long as they’re all part of the same order and match the shipping label.
Decluttr will give you discounts, coupons and credits, too.
If you’re a student, you can get 10 percent extra cash back for your CDs, DVDs, books (including textbooks), cell phones and more. For the student discount, just register with Student Beans and then enjoy the extra money in your pocket for getting rid of your unwanted items.
If it’s your first time using Decluttr, you can also get a coupon code that gives you even more cash back for your items. Check out all of Decluttr’s coupon codes and then get saving. You can only use each coupon code once, but some are pretty sweet (like $15 off!).
Also, after you make an account, you’ll have a unique referral code that you can send to friends. Once they sign up, you’ll get a $5 bonus credit in your basket, and so will your friend.
Buy devices at discounted prices.
You can save a pretty penny buying items used instead of brand new, and Decluttr makes it easy. For instance, you can buy refurbished iPhones for less than $200. There are also deals on CDs, DVDs and games like two for $5, two for $6, two for $8 and two for $10. Plus, there’s free shipping on all orders, as well as a free 12-month, limited warranty on your items.
If you’re looking to get rid of old tech gadgets, books, DVDs and more, Decluttr is a great place to start. Even if you only get $5 for your old Kindle or 50 cents for a book, it’s better than nothing, right? Plus, over time, all of your old items could add up and give you the extra funds you need to pay your phone bill that month or stash more cash away in your savings account. Every penny counts, so don’t let a money-making opportunity pass you by.
