My daughter is going into 5th grade in September and things will be different this year. Her big brother is going to middle school 20 minutes a day and my daughter will be walking home several days during the week by herself, as her younger brother is attending our school’s afterschool program. We’re in NYC and while her commute is short, I want to get her a phone so she can call or text me to let me know once she is on her way home. However, I don’t want to spend a fortune. There are so many smartphones on the market and getting something pre-owned can be a smart way to ease her into the world of being digitally connected. I’m excited to be partnering up with Trademore to let you know about how you can pick up something pre-owned that won’t break the bank and download my smartphone contract for kids at the end of this post. When It’s Time To Get Your Kid a Smartphone
If you’re not familiar with Trademore, they offer a large selection of devices with very competitive prices. All devices go through a 30-point functional and cosmetic inspection (for quality, reliability, and functionality) and receive a 100% inspection score. Your new pre-owned phone will be delivered quickly, with free 2-day shipping. And the best thing – the website is super easy to use and you can get the Trademore Certified device that you want – at a fraction of the retail price!
How to Pick out a Device at Trademore:
You simply look for what you want – the manufacturer and device. Then pick the carrier, then the capacity, color, and then the condition. From “Good” up to “Like New”. You can also see what will be coming in your box (like the device + a charging cable). Then you verify the captcha to see the price and then purchase your device! It’s really that easy.
One of the phones that I’m looking for my daughter at is the Samsung Galaxy S7. I checked the price on an online retailer’s website for an unlocked one and it was double the price for a gently used one on Trademore. My daughter loves her Samsung tablet so a Samsung phone, which I am dying to try, could be really a good fit for her.
I’m also looking at the iPhone 6S for my daughter. We are an Apple family so that could be the direction we go.
While I’m not exactly sure which smartphone from Trademore that we’re getting yet, I do know that I have to make sure my daughter has rules for her smartphone. We didn’t really give my 12-year-old son rules for his phone when we bought it last November and we had issues. Here’s a family smartphone printable you can use.
