Don’t abandon your Apple TV, sell it to us

If you’re a decent person (we’ll assume you are since you’re a Cult of Mac reader), you don’t leave your old TV on the sidewalk when it’s outlived its usefulness. The same consideration for your neighbors and the environment should extend to your old Apple TV.

Whether you’re abandoning your old Apple TV to upgrade, replace a busted unit or to give up TV entirely (yeah right), the Cult of Mac buyback program will make sure you get the most money possible. Even better-known companies like Gazelle and Walmart can’t offer as much, and you’ll be making sure your dated or defunct device ends up in the right place.

We’re your best bet for selling that old Apple TV

Forget about the uneasy, not-always-profitable and sometimes sketchy process of selling on Craigslist. Our Apple TV buyback makes things simple and offer the best (and almost only) option for passing along your defunct device.

A fourth-generation Apple TV will get you a cool $60. At Best Buy, the same used Apple TV gets you a mere $15. Gazelle, the biggest name in buybacks, doesn’t even accept that model. And Apple and Walmart don’t accept old Apple TVs at all.

Dispose of your broken Apple TV properly

Even if your device is no longer fit for use, we’ll make sure it gets properly disposed of and recycled at no cost to you.

Modern electronics are stuffed with toxic chemicals that seep into the ground and water. If not handled correctly, they fill landfills with materials that can do serious harm to the environment and people’s health. E-waste is the world’s fastest-growing waste stream, and Cult of Mac’s buyback program makes sure your devices don’t end up contributing to it.

You won’t find an easier Apple TV buyback program

You don’t want to spend a whole lot of time going through the process of trading in or recycling your old gadgets, and frankly neither do we.

That’s why Cult of Mac partnered with MyPhones Unlimited, a small startup based in Arkansas. They run a lean operation, foregoing big advertising budgets and keeping overhead low so their payouts remain as big as possible. Their repair techs disassemble, recycle and dispose of spent electronics swiftly.

And swift is the name of the game. Our buyback program makes the process of selling and recycling as simple as it can possibly be. It just takes a minute to select the device you’re getting rid of. Accept our quote, and we’ll send a box with a return label attached. Return it with your old Apple TV inside, and within a week or so you’ll get a check. You don’t even need to leave your house, although without the Apple TV you might have more time to go outside.
