With the release of the new AirPods Pro 2 — which are getting rave reviews — why not trade in your old AirPods for real cash?

Cult of Mac offers good money for your old AirPods, making your next upgrade more affordable. We won’t leave you waiting weeks for your check, and we promise that none of the tech we receive will end up in landfill.

So, what are you waiting for? Get a quote for your old AirPods today.

Trade-in your old AirPods for cash

No one really wants to use your grimy old AirPods when you’re done with them. So, instead of handing them down, you could turn them into as much as $50 to put toward a brand-new pair (or anything else you want).

The process is quick and simple, and you’ll receive your cash in just a few days. We’ll even buy back broken AirPods in need of repair.

Sell your old AirPods to Cult of Mac

Here’s how it works:

  • You visit our buyback page and get a quote for your old AirPods.
  • We’ll send you a box with a prepaid returns label that you can use to ship your old buds to us free of charge.
  • Once we’ve received your AirPods, we’ll issue you a check that you’ll receive in around one week.

We won’t fob you off with store credit or keep you waiting. We cough up real cash that you can spend anywhere.

It’s not just AirPods we’ll buy back, either; we buy many old Apple devices you don’t want anymore, including Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV. It all gets recycled or refurbished and resold.

How much can you make?

Cult of Mac aims to pay more than other buyback services, so if your AirPods are still in good condition, you could make a pretty penny. We offer up to $150 for AirPods Max, and up to $50 for AirPods Pro.

What’s more, our quotes are good for 14 days. That gives you plenty of time to preorder your new buds this weekend before packing up and sending off your old ones. Visit our buyback site today and secure your quote!
