If you have an old cell phone or iPod that you want to get rid of, you'll love this tip.

Flip-Swap gives you steps to follow to get an appraisal of what your old cell phone or iPod is worth.

If it's really old, they'll recycle it and plant a tree in exchange for you mailing them the device. But if it's a newer model, in good condition, you'll get a gift card to Amazon for whatever Flip-Swap determines the device is worth.
