Advantages Easy money, quick to sign up and complete, cheque received within 2 days
As a student, I am always looking for ways to earn money to get that bit of extra cash. I'd heard about all these mobile phone recycling companies for some time, but had never got round to looking into it. So, last week (wanting to procrastinate and delay revision!) I decided to go online and check out what was available.
The website was clearly laid out and really simple to use. Just type in the model of your phone and a quote is given instantly. Although the best prices are given for working models, it is still definitely worth checking out even if your phone does not work; the quote will be lower, but still easy money for something which would otherwise have no alternative use. Clear guides are provided on the website to explain what consitutes an acceptable/unacceptable non-working phone.
The next step is to print off the Order Confirmation page. Place this in a Jiffy bag with your phone(s) and send them off. Fonebank do provide a Freepost address, however they also provide a standard address, as they recommend using special delivery for phones that are worth a bit more. As I had quite a large order, I used special delivery; it may have cost a few quid to post but at least it meant it would get there safely and I was insured if not.
It is also worth seeing if your friends are interested in using the site, as there is a 'Recommend a Friend' function.
