    Default Radio Shack Launches Week Long iPhone Discount Program Today



    There's no shortage of consumers doing a double-take over the price cuts and trade-in opportunities beginning this weekend at Radio Shack. From December 4th-11th, you can get at least $50 off a new iPhone. Even better, by trading in your current model, you can get a brand spankin' new iPhone 4 for a previously unheard of price. If it sounds like an internet or email scam, you're not alone in thinking that. But the deal from Radio Shack is legit for all customers either new to AT&T or eligible for upgrade pricing.

    Radio Shack has outlined on its website precisely how much a trade in would save you on a new handset, given the qualified model you would be forking over. If for example, you're trading in a fully functional 16GB iPhone 3GS, Radio Shack will give you a $125.00 credit as part of the Trade and Save program. In addition, you can combine that offer with Radio Shack's "instant $50 savings." In this particular case, you would then be eligible for a new iPhone 4 at a cost of $25 (sans taxes, activation fees).

    Despite what you may have heard elsewhere or gleaned from blogs reporting misinformation, this week-long sale is not available through Radio Shack's online storefront. You need to actually visit your local Radio Shack (store locator) to secure any deal available to you. Additionally, current AT&T customers are encouraged to check out Radio's Shack's Eligibility Checker to see exactly what deals (if any) are ripe for the taking via upgrade pricing.

    For more info, check out Radio Shack's Trade and Save program to determine what deals are available to you.

    You could easily get twice that for a used 3GS. Not hot on the trade in.

    Who ever still has an old iPhone better go for this deal cause you can get a new 3GS for $99.00 and on craigslist everyones not getting any ware what the want and you still got to fork over a hundred or two. I'm kinda mad cause I stood in line on launching day and upgraded from 3GS 32gb to iPhone 4 32gb for $300.00 and change. But I sold my 3GS for $375.00 on Craigslist but that was months ago.

    I'd like to point out that the Radioshack Eligibility checker isn't 100% accurate I upgraded someone today who came up ineligible on Radioshack, but eligible on AT&T. You are better off dialing *639#.

    Early upgraders will also get the $50 off making their price $350/450.

    Also if your local store doesn't have it in-stock they can likely order it for you and ship it to your house within 4 days for free.


    Also be sure to use 4square to get a discount on accessories!

    I am not eligible for upgrade until 4/21. Not worth it to me to upgrade until then.

    I sold my white 32GB 3GS (old bootrom) on eBay for $450 unlocked & jailbroken. You can get way more selling it on your own if you know how to properly advertise it on craigslist or eBay.

    Here are the current Craigslist IPhone prices in my area.

    Model ==============Broken======Good
    iPhone (Original) 4GB ===============$60
    iPhone (Original) 8GB ===============$70
    iPhone (Original) 16GB ==============$80
    iPhone 3G 8GB ======= $75 ======== $125
    iPhone 3G 16GB ====== $85 ======== $150
    iPhone 3GS 16GB ===== $100 ======== $200
    iPhone 3GS 32GB ===== $150 ======== $225
    (Good iPhones are considered to be without damage to the screen or cracked backs, excellent condition screen and back (Light wear is normal) and complete with USB Cable and power adaptor, Original Box and headphones)

    have fun all
