    selling phone to sister..

    i had new phone for xmas and my sister wants to buy my Lg Viewty which is about 10mths old. Ive looked on fleabay and they are varied in price BUT being as its my sister what would you class reasonable?
    Should i just ask for 50quid? give it to her, or charge going rate.
    I hate it when family want to buy something, i never know what to do!
    I feel bad selling it to her at going price, as its family BUT on other hand its worth a bit so i ought to get some money back...

    My friend wanted to buy my DS off me and suggested I put it on ebay and see how high it gets and if it goes beyond what he wanted to pay for it then fair do's.... not quite sure how this would work in practice as if you let the auction end you get charged fees and have to sell to the winner but if you could find some way round this it might be a fair alternative.

    I tend to just give things away to my family......I feel bad taking … I tend to just give things away to my family......I feel bad taking money.. :oops:



    Same here, it's such a situation to be in! I think charging the full price is something she'd probably kill you for later :giggle:

    if it was free with a contract then give it to her, you'll get a new one with a new contract.
    Otherwise just be kind whatever you do.

    It depends, what would happen if you wanted to buy something of hers? Would she give you a special rate?

    give it to her, shes you sister, family is so important, trust me you will feel great, better than if you have £50, I think you would feel guilty - that is of course if you are close to her, if not ask her to make you an offer

    give her it, she may give some money ur way for giving her it for nowt!

    I would give it to her BUT my mum wants it as well!! omg mum would strop with me if i gave it to sister and not her! I wish they didnt know i was selling it now!

    I know sister would not let me give it to her anyway , shes very proud and would demand i give her a price i want for it. Which is the part i hate... i might just say i dropped it, just to stop any arguements! lol

    OMG nightmare to be in with both wanting it, if any of them want it ask them what price they willing to pay and go with the highest, or put both of them in a hat with them there and pull one out lol...

    Failing that, just give it to me :giggle:

    Not both your mum and sister in the hat, their names lmao
