TL; DR: As of Feb. 26, get an extra 5% on price valuation at Decluttr with the code MASH5.
Your old smartphone used to spark so much joy, but now you’ve got the next generation with a better screen, more impressive cameras, and a longer-lasting battery. With 2020 already rolling out some enticing upgrades (are foldable phones really the future?), you might be considering your next trade-in even sooner.
Rather than tossing your retired devices in a drawer, get paid for recycling them (which you should be doing anyway). Decluttr is an easy way to minimize e-waste, which sadly represents 70% of toxic waste in landfills. Seriously, never throw anything with a lithium battery in the trash.
Try Decluttr now and get an extra 5% on the price valuation for your unwanted tech, as well as DVDs, CDS, Blu-rays, textbooks, and LEGO® toys, with the code MASH5 for Mashable readers.

Beat carrier trade-in offers
On average, Decluttr pays up to 33% more than carrier buybacks for smartphones — plus, you’ll get an additional 5% with Mashable’s exclusive code. Without the code, an 64GB Apple iPhone 8 would snag $183, but with it, you’ll get $192.15.
Ready to skip straight to the S20, S20+, or S20 Ultra for their next-level cameras — or be an early adopter of the Galaxy Z Flip? For Android users, Samsung’s mid-February Unpacked event in S.F. stepped up the smartphone competition, making this a good time to upgrade and trade.
Laptops are eligible, too
If you’re in the market for a more powerful laptop, some cash for your old one can help your wallet. Sell your 13-inch MacBook Air Core i5 in good condition for $598.50 ($570 without code). Plus, recycling 1 million laptops can save enough energy to run more than 3,500 homes for a year.
Send your items in any box you want
Once you’ve got a free shipping label, pack and send your gear. Then wait for payday via DD, PayPal, or a check. The funds will hit your account the day after your goods arrive at Decluttr HQ. For bonus good vibes, you can also donate your payment to charity.
