iPhone Trade-in Promotion Back at Best Buy This Weekend
Similar to the popular trade-in program Best Buy ran for a weekend last May, the electronics retail giant is resurrecting the promotion through Sunday for old-gen iPhone owners looking to trade up.
Although the iPhone 5S is expected to launch as soon as next month, there are plenty of iPhone enthusiasts who would be happy to save $100 or more to upgrade to iPhone 5, the current flagship model.
Beginning Thursday (today) and lasting through Sunday, August 18th, iPhone 4 owners will receive a $100 Best Buy gift card that can be used toward the purchase of an iPhone 5 (a new 2-year contract with AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint is required). If you're trading in an iPhone 4S, you'll receive at least $200 off the purchase of an iPhone 5.
It is important to note, however, that Best Buy's trade-in program is NOT valid for T-Mobile and no-contract iPhone models.
As expected, the retailer also cautions that the value of the promotional amount a consumer receives is dependent upon the condition of the iPhone being traded-in. For example, iPhones that have suffered water damage or sport cracked screens will not be accepted.
