Best Buy has launched yet another trade-in program, now offering up to $100 for any working smartphone. The $100 is made available in the form of a Best Buy gift card that can be applied towards the purchase of an iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c. The iPhone trade-in program will launch on Friday, October 11th for purchases of an iPhone 5c, while iPhone 5s buyers will have to wait October 13th, possibly due to product constraints.
Since Best Buy already has a program in place for the iPhone 5c that brings the price of an iPhone 5c to as low as $49 with a $50 gift card, the company is not allowing customers to combine offers. Best Buy notes in a document (pictured above), that the smartphones must be able to power on and must not have any major visible damage such as a cracked screen, broken pieces, or water damage. It also mentions that devices that come with their original packaging may increase the trade-in value.
There are now many different ways to trade in old iPhones, with a lot of retailers offering discounts. Recently, Best Buy, Walmart, and even RadioShack began offering iPhone 5c discounts, which dropped the price of the device from its $99 price-tag for the base model to $50 and below.
