Going to college is an investment in your future. And at this time, it can also be very eye opening how quickly the cost of going to college adds up. Because, you have to pay for the courses, books, supplies and tools needed to complete a class successfully. However, there are ways to cut some costs. For instance, buying and selling pre-owned items, at a pawn shop. And that’s where Tempe Pawn and Gold comes in. We buy and sell calculators, laptops and more to the ASU community, to keep your much needed cash in your pockets.
We Buy and Sell Calculators
Tempe Pawn and Gold is always looking to buy calculators that are designed for specific industries, such as engineering, science and finance. Therefore, here are the brands and models of calculators we tend to sell and buy at our store:
- Texas Instruments
- TI BAII Plus Professional
- TI83 Plus Graph
- TI84 Plus Graphing
- TI-84 Plus CE Graphing
- TI89 Titanium Graphing
- TI Nspire CX II Student Software
- TI Nspire CX II CAS Student Software
- HP12CC Financial
- HP-12C Plat Programmable
- Prizm Color Graphin
Our inventory of calculators can vary from day to day, and usually curtails to ASU’s semester schedules. Because, after a semester ends, is when we will have a surge in buying multiple calculators from students. In addition, right before a new semester starts we have a surge in selling the majority of the calculators we had accumulated.
How Much Do They Sell For At Your Store?
There are a few factors that determine the selling price of our calculators. First, the condition of the calculator when it is brought in, if it is in good working condition, and everything that it came with brand new is present. After that, our pawnbroker will refer to the current market value of the calculator of the same make and model. Finally, if the seller brought it in with the packaging it came in, and/or the sales receipt from the original purchase. Therefore, you can find one of the Texas Instruments calculators listed above, ranging from half its retail price, or higher.
