Best Buy is offering a minimum $150 gift for trade-ins towards the purchase of iPhone 5s. The company is looking for mobile phones in a very good condition. Having a small scratch could affect the trade in value. Not having the original box, charger or head-set also can affect the trade-in value.
For all Apple fans out there that want to get into this offer there are certain things to consider:
– the deal is not available in online stores; not even all Best Buy stores are in on the deal so be sure to search online for the nearest store that accepts trade-in phones.
– you must be eligible for a new activation agreement
– because of the previously mentioned conditions not all iPhone 5 or 4s devices are eligible for trade-ins and their value depends on their condition
The original advertisement on Best Buy's website is the following: "Valid 2/28/14-3/1/14. In store only. iPhone 5s 16GB: $699.99 – $500 Instant Savings = $199.99 – $50 Additional Savings = $149.99 + Tax – $150 Trade-In gift card = $1 with 2-year agreement and use of your trade-in gift card."
