    Default Best Buy: 50% Off iPhone 5 for Labor Day Trade-In


    With iPhone trade-in promotions becoming particularly common in the weeks leading up to Apple's anticipated launch of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C, Best Buy is getting back into the swing of things with yet another weekend-long promo set to kick off tomorrow.

    Here's how it works. Best Buy is offering the iPhone 5 (16GB or 32GB) at a 50% discount through Monday for customers trading in a functional iPhone 4 or iPhone 4S.

    Of course, Best Buy isn't the only place to toss your old iPhone in order to get a better deal on a new one. In addition to similar programs offered by AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon Communications, Apple is expected to begin offering a comprehensive in-store program that would let customers trade-in used iPhones for credit toward a new model.

    As of this writing, Apple is still expected to herald the arrival of the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on September 10th. Based on insider details gleaned this week, retail employees at AT&T and T-Mobile are being informed that they can't vacation on or around September 20th, indicating that the new devices will officially go on sale at that time.

    Hmmm. I do have an old iPhone 4 just sitting around... How much would that make a 16gb iPhone 5?

    Not sure as I'm doing the same. I assume it'll be worth the price difference. Before, they were doing $100 for ip4 and $200 for ip4S. We'll see what this equates to.

    Think it's on a 2 yr contract or a line upgrade. Would be sweet if it was flat out.

    I hear ya! I just completed my ip4S Silver Metallic conversion w/ the Light Mod. I'll be giving that to my daughter to use as an iPhod (iPhone/iPod) whenever I get the 5S.

    There is always a catch. 2 year contract makes up for any so called sale you thought you were receiving. I bought a factory unlocked iPhone 3GS back in the day and it was the worse purchase I ever made. You'll never recoup that kind of money for an iPhone. I learned my lesson..contract or craigslist :]

    Yea full price for iPhones are wild. Still amazes me they charge a extra 100 bucks for the memory bump. Anyway the Craigslist around here is a little shady (Philadelphia area) ill either do the contract or ebay.

    So they want you to trade in your 4S for $100? That would be foolish.

    The deal two weeks ago was better. iPhone 4S trade in for IPhone 5. Only activation fee and two year contract. No other costs.

    Still the first month payment was a shocker. Went from 3G on virgin mobile to 4glte payment from $35 a month to $130 a month on verizon. Wish there was better 4G-LTE coverage in more places.

    I went to take advantage of this offer today. What a joke. They offered me 220 for my phone. Because my trade in value is more than 150 you get no discount on the phone. Screw them
