  • Target Offers iPhone Trade-In Program

    AppAdvice is reporting that tomorrow Target will be offering trade-ins on the beloved older iPhones for customers who are hoping to upgrade to the iPhone 4.

    Target will offer $100 for the 16GB iPhone 3G, and depending on the condition, up to $200 for a 32GB iPhone 3GS. Terms state that you must sign up for a 2yr contract with AT&T.

    iPhone 3G or 3GS trade-in In order to take advantage of this in-store only offer, guests must trade in a working iPhone 3G or 3GS and sign a two-year contract with AT&T. Guests may receive up to $100 credit for an iPhone 3G 16GB and up to $200 credit for an iPhone 3GS 32GB, offering great cost savings on a new iPhone 4 16GB priced at $199 or an iPhone 4 32GB priced at $299.
    Customers interested will only have 1 week to apply for this program, but as anyone else in the community would agree, your going to see much more return for your old iPhone by selling it privately or through eBay.

      Ain't that the truth.

      Even if you don't know how to list items on ebay or craigslist you could find a friend or family member that does and offer them a few sheckles to help you out. You'd still be making a ton more than what you would from the trade-in.

      Best buy and radio shack have offered trade-in programs for awhile. It's great for customers that want to upgrade and aren't worried about it being a "rip-off". The customer wins by getting some value for an item they no longer want and the company wins by selling it for more than they paid. Gotta love win-win scenarios in capitalism!

      its not bad for some people who just dont like the small hassle of having to sell things on the internet, but ebay still the best option for optimal return
