I’ve talked before about Amazon’s Trade-In Program but just got word that they are already accepting trade-in requests for old iPhones from those who plan on picking up the soon-to-be-released iPhone 6!
Here are the details:
Take advantage of the 45-day lock-in period (starting 9/9-10/10) to lock in values on hot phones – Apple iPhone5s 64 GB AT&T- $400* or Apple iPhone 5 64 GB Verizon- $363.55* – while you wait to buy their new device!
(Note: *Trade-in values are subject to change based on market rate.)
Those who choose to trade-in their electronics through Amazon will be paid with an Amazon gift card. It’s probably not as optimal as cold hard cash, but usually gift card payments tend to be higher than cash payments. By comparison, Gazelle is offering $310 for an unlocked Apple iPhone5s 64 GB AT&T or $270 for a locked phone. Of course, that’s straight cash.
Regardless of whether you go with Amazon, Gazelle, or someone else entirely, it may be worth your while to do your research and lock down the trade-in price now. The more phones get traded in, the lower the trade-in value is going to be!
