Selling price for NST

I'm planning to buy the new Nook Glow.  I'd like to sell my NST.  It's in excellent condition, and it has a hard case which is also in very good condition.  What would be a reasonable asking price?

I'll trade you my N1E for it.

Given that a brand new one is only $79, you'll probably be lucky to get $30-$35 if you're selling it directly yourself. Expect less if you're selling it to a used electronics store that will retail it to someone else.

Re: Selling price for NST

A quick look at ebay shows people still getting bids in the $50 range (and shows people getting NO bids on $20, go figure).

 

One thing to remember is that the NST isn't going away so the price of a new one is still $79 and the only other option is to spend $119 on a NGL.

 

Personally, I tend to offer smaller electronics that I've replaced to my friends for free.  I make them happy, I've gotten "paid" many times over with "sure, I'll help you move, I love the phone you gave me", and I don't have to deal with shipping and the expectations of some buyer I don't know.

The new one is 119, the NST currently retails for 79, and the NSTG retailed for 99 (it's likely still available, but I do not seem them making more). 

The Wheel weaves as the Wheel wills, and we are only the thread of the Pattern.

Re: Selling price for NST

Actually, that's what I did last night.  I remembered I had a friend who would love an e-reader, so I offered it to her.  I know she'd want to pay me, and I absolutely don't want that. So I said she could have it for a bottle of wine and a salad and a date for dinner over here.  It's what she always brings whwn she comes, but she won't feel like she's taking something for nothing, which she hates to do.
