Best Buy to Offer $100 Towards iPhone 5s, 5c with Smartphone Trade-in
Best Buy will become the latest retailer to offer customers a trade-in option for a new iPhone but only for seven days.
Even though sales of the new iPhone models have already rocketed to the top of every major wireless carrier, Best Buy might be looking to convert any stragglers that are still reluctant to switch to Apple.
Best Buy will be offering customers a $100 credit that must be used towards a new iPhone 5C or 5S smartphone when “any working smartphone” is traded in. For that going rate, customers could walk out of the store with an iPhone 5C without putting any money down.
The promotion is said to run from October 13th to October 19th and states that the smartphone being traded in “must be undamaged (no cracked screen or liquid damage) and in working condition to qualify,” additional costs such as sales tax and carrier activation fees may apply. If a certain iPhone model isn’t available in store at the time of trading it, customers will be rewarded a “raincheck” offer.
