We bet you paid a lot of money for a phone that’s been sitting in a drawer (or basket or bin or closet or…you get the point) for the last few years.

And at the rate technology is changing, there might be a few phones, tablets or pairs of headphones gathering dust in there. Do you know how much money you’re wasting by letting your old tech get older? You won’t use them again — might as well sell them!

A website called Whistle makes selling all of those items super easy. No printer, mailing supplies or sketchy Craigslist meetups required. Plus, you could get paid 30% more than with other options — and get your money within 24 hours.

See How Much Your Device is Worth in 30 Seconds or Less

You’ve probably always assumed you’d get peanuts for selling your smartphones and gadgets — not even worth all the hassle. Well, Whistle has found a way to make this process as easy as possible.

So, are you ready to part ways with your old tech and make some money? Here’s what you need to do:

When you go to Whistle’s website, choose the device you want to sell and answer a few questions about it. You’ll then get a guaranteed offer. That means as long as you’ve answered the questions honestly, they’ll pay you exactly that amount — no questions asked.

This won’t take you more than 30 seconds.

A 64GB iPhone XS in good condition could fetch $290. An Amazon Kindle Paperwhite with 32GB could sell for $60. In general, Whistle says it pays out 30% more than other websites. Plus, Whistle stays in touch with you every step of the process.

If the price is right, enter your email and choose how you want to get paid — via PayPal, direct deposit, check or gift card.

Whistle will then send you everything you need to ship your device to them — no printer or packaging required. Once USPS drops your device at Whistle’s doorstep (bonus: it’s fully insured while in transit), you’ll see your payment within 24 hours.

That’s faster than any other website.
