Your electronic devices may provide a financial lifeline when money is tight, as televisions, stereo systems, and gaming consoles are always in demand in pawn shops. Knowing which items pawnbrokers put the highest premium on can help you know what to take to the pawn shop and what to leave behind.
- New televisions – If you’ve purchased a flat screen TV in the past two years, you may be able to get hundreds for it at the pawn shop, especially if it’s 55 inches or more and provides easy access to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu.
- Laptops – Pawn shop customers are always looking for a deal, and they can often find bargains on computers there. If you have a laptop that is no more than two years old, you may be able to negotiate a good price from a pawnbroker eager to replenish his or her stock of computers.
- Musical equipment – As long as there are musicians looking for a deal on gear, there will be a buyer for your used amps and electric instruments. You may not get a high dollar value for pawning these items, but, as long as they’re in good shape, they will be among the things worth money to pawn.
