How Much is Your iPhone 5 / 5s / 5c Worth Now?

Time flies at lightspeed in the tech world. About a year ago, the iPhone 6 was revealed and many chose to upgrade to the phone with the larger display. At the time, we compared trade-in prices for your old generation 5 iPhones and urged you to take the deal while the iron was hot. Since then, the prices for the same phones have dropped tremendously.

The lists below show the maximum credit and cash offers you can now expect if you decide to trade-in your iPhone 5s, 5c, or plain old 5 at these major retailers that have trade-in programs. The price for these trade-in phones are now $50-$200 lower than they were last year.

Like in September of last year, Amazon still offers the best prices for AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon phones, with Walmart offering the least. Verizon phones will receive a higher offer no matter where you trade it in, but don’t expect as much from Sprint or T-Mobile phones. In all cases, a phone that is unlocked will go for a higher price. Your phone must be in good condition without a cracked screen.

With Amazon and Best Buy, the color of your old phone matters, but the difference is usually only by a few dollars. GameStop, Gazelle, Next Worth, and Walmart don’t care about the color.

By the time the iPhone 6's successor comes out later this year, these phones might be worth less than a night at the movies.
