More and more kids nowadays are getting cell phones. That’s why I’m going to save your sanity with these tips how to buy your teen a cell phone without pulling your hair out.
Have you ever been to a cell phone store? Unless you’ve been living under a rock, of course you have.
Even the “good” stores have lines up to one hour long, and to get noticed you have to be THIS tall to ride this ride.
The stores are packed and your patience is running thin. All you want to do is ask how to buy your teen a cell phone so they will stop nagging you to death. Sound familiar?
Why spend an hour in the store waiting for some hipster dude with a man bun with a “fun” name like Dylan to put you out of your misery? There’s a much easier option (wearing man buns optional).
Last Christmas, I told you how to make money during the holidays using Trademore.
Trademore isn’t just an awesome way to make cash on your old devices. It’s also an awesome way to pick the perfect cell phone for your child.
All three of our kids are now driving age. (Oh the horror, yes I’m getting THAT old)
With driving they are going to be on their own more and more. Three kids times three cell phones = mommy’s wallet has nothing but moth balls in it.
That doesn’t have to be the case because we checked out the cell phone selection at Trademore. Most brand new cell phones are running over $800 for the latest phones.
If your teens are anything like mine, they are bound to break their phones. Dropping $800/kid on a cell phone isn’t exactly the path our family wants to take. I might as well take $1000 and flush it down my toilet!
When the kids kept
nagging asking me to get phones, the first place we looked at was Trademore.
You just go to Trademore.com click “Buy Phone” and pick which one you want.
We’re looking at an iPhone6. They had an iPhone with our current carrier and all the specifications we needed!
We were able to score a iPhone6 in excellent condition with lots of memory for less than $200! ( I think I’m going to put that $600 in savings in Mommy’s vacation fund) Insert happy dance here.
The thing that is great about Trademore is that all of their phones have received a 100% inspection score. Each device goes through a 30 point functional and cosmetic inspection test for quality, reliability, and functionality.
You can order a device to fit your needs without worrying about the phone quality, and you will get it with free 2 day shipping! Score!
It’s not only a great place to buy your child a cell phone, but you can also sell your old devices too. Check out more about how to make money on your old cell phones.
