Ever open the drawer and go, “Oh yeah. I own a Jawbone UP”? It’s easy to forget about an old fitness tracker or smartwatch you’ve got stashed away, but the Cult of Mac buyback program makes rediscovering an unused wearable more like finding a forgotten wad of cash.

We’ll give you the best price for your wearables, from shiny Apple Watches to older, well-worn products that most other buyback programs won’t accept. It’s a no-brainer to quickly and easily turn an old, unused wearable into cold, hard cash.

We want your well-worn wristwear

If you’re looking to pass on a wearable you don’t want, we’re basically your best and only option. Best Buy is one of the only companies that’ll take back a Jawbone or Pebble, but they can’t compete with us on the price they’ll pay.

A Pebble Steel in good working order will get you a solid $40 from us. At Best Buy, the same smartwatch will get you $24. A Jawbone UP4 earns $40 from Cult of Mac’s buyback. Best Buy offers just half that bounty.

We’re picking on Best Buy here because Gazelle, the biggest name in buybacks, doesn’t even accept wearables on its website. Neither do Apple or Walmart.

Maybe we’re just not so snooty. Even if your Fitbit is no longer fit for use, we’ll make sure it gets properly disposed of and recycled at no cost to you.

Many electronic gadgets contain a whole menu of toxic materials and chemicals that add to the massive problem of landfills. Not to mention e-waste, the fastest-growing waste stream on Earth. Cult of Mac’s buyback program is the easiest way to make cleaning out your drawers a way to help create a cleaner planet.

It couldn’t be simpler to sell your used wearable

We set out to make the buyback process as painless and environmentally responsible as it can possibly be for you to get the most for your old device. To do that, Cult of Mac joined forces with the brilliant young folks at Arkansas-based startup MyPhones Unlimited.

Our combined mission: Make sure old electronics stay out of landfills, and their chemicals and caustic components don’t contaminate the soil. Low overhead is what makes this possible.

MyPhones Unlimited isn’t trying to conquer the market, wasting money on big advertising campaigns like some of its better-known competitors. The company prefers to focus its resources on a lean and efficient operation. A top-flight team of repair technicians and recycling specialists works tirelessly to refurbish used devices and safely disassemble, recycle and dispose of spent electronics.

Send us your old wearable

Another thing our buyback partnership strives for is to make the selling or recycling process as simple as possible, and by Jove we’ve done it. It only takes a minute and a couple clicks to get things moving.

Just choose the wearable you’re trading in or recycling, then we’ll send you an appropriately sized box with a return label attached. You return it with your device inside, and we send you a check. Boom. You’ll have your cash in a week or so.
