Black Friday Story Idea: How your old busted gadget can help you get this year’s hottest tech toys

With Black Friday and Cyber Monday just a few days away, I’m writing to suggest a fun story idea for El Lider USA on a timely topic: How just one busted gadget can help you get this year’s hottest new tech toys.

I’m the publicist for uSell.com, the leading online marketplace for used gadgets. What killer purchases could a super savvy consumer expect to make that week if they got rid of that one old gadget they are hoarding?

Many consumers hoard old phones, tablets and laptops for no reason. In fact, on a recent survey, uSell found that 51% of consumers admit that they are hoarding 2-5 old model gadgets – and have been for many years. 67 percent have multiple old gadgets at home that they have not used in the past 3 months.

By simply re-selling these gadgets before the Black Friday and Cyber Monday holidays, consumers can actually stand to make an extra $720 or more to spend on these hot shopping days on great retail specials – and buy multiple tech toys.

FOR EXAMPLE:
* If you:
Sell your Apple iPad 4th Generation 128GB WiFi + 4G for $300, you can buy:
— 3 Kindle Fire HDs at Best Buy for $100 each

* If you:
Sell your Apple iPad Mini 32GB WiFi for $155 on uSell.com, you can buy:
— 2 brand new Apple TVs for $89.00 each at Target

* If you:
Sell your Samsung Galaxy S4 SGH-I337 for $235 on uSell.com, you can buy
— a GoPro Hero3 at Best Buy for just $60
