Gazelle Loyalty Points: How They Work & What They’re Worth
Wondering how the Gazelle Loyalty Points program works? Here’s the lowdown on Gazelle Loyalty Points, including how to get them and what they can be redeemed for.
What are Gazelle Loyalty Points?
Once you join the program, Gazelle awards points when you do things like sell a phone, refer a friend or visit its website. Points can later be redeemed for additional cash when you sell a device.
Points can take up to 2 weeks to be available in your account, and each point expires 3 years after it is earned. Note that points do not accrue for taxes or shipping fees.
How can you get Gazelle Loyalty Points?
Gazelle awards different point values for different actions:
- Sell a device: 1 point per $1 earned (with a 50-point first-time bonus)
- Sign up for the program: 100 points
- Refer a friend who sells a device on Gazelle: 100 points
- Refer a friend who buys a device on Gazelle: 100 points
- Visit Gazelle’s website: 1 point per day
- Connect with Gazelle on social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or Instagram): 10 points (one time only)
Sometimes Gazelle features promotions that give you the opportunity to earn more points. For example, right now through June 23 you can earn 3 times the Loyalty Points plus an extra $10 if you sell a device worth $75 or more.
How much are Gazelle Loyalty Points worth?
Gazelle Loyalty Points are worth about 2 cents per point:
- 250 points: $5
- 500 points: $10
- 1,000 points: $20
- 2,500 points: $50
- 5,000 points: $100
For example, let’s say you sign up for Gazelle’s Loyalty Points program (100 points) and sell a phone worth $350 (350 points). Since it’s your first sale, you’d get the 50-point bonus so you would have a total of 500 points. A month later, you sell a tablet worth $250. You could redeem your 500 points, which are worth $10, and get paid $260 for your tablet.
If you sold your phone during Gazelle’s 3 times plus $10 promotion, you would earn 1,050 points instead of 350 points, plus get an extra $10 for your phone. A month later, you could then redeem 1,000 of those points to get an extra $20 for your tablet – $270 instead of $250 – and keep the remaining 50 points in your balance.
Gazelle Loyalty Points reward repeat sellers and brand ambassadors. Keep an eye out for special promotions so you can maximize your points and get more cash when you sell used devices.
