Holding on to old electronics could cost you money

Created: 03/20/2014 7:01 AM WHEC.com

Do you find yourself holding on to old devices long after you stop using them?

A new survey says 68-percent of Americans say they still have old cell phones, tablets and other electronics they haven't used in two years or more.

Holding on to those used-up techno toys is costing you money. You can sell your old cell phones and tablets through websites like Amazon and U-Sell. If you're looking to trade up, Staples, Best Buy and your wireless carrier might give you a credit for your phone.
