Buy the HTC One, trade in your old smartphone and get $100 – deadline extended
Chances are that if you've been looking forward to buying an HTC One, then you've probably heard of the company's smartphone trade-in program. Basically, those who choose to send their old handset to HTC after purchasing the One will get no less than $100 in return for doing so. The promo was supposed to run for a short time only, yet HTC kept on extending the deadline, and now it has done it once again.

After pre-registering for HTC's trade-in program, you'll have until May 19 to get the HTC One. Then you have to mail your old smartphone and proof of HTC One purchase by June 19. The $100 credit will be sent to you in the form of a pre-paid Visa card. Note that the amount of money you get in return may be greater, depending on the value of the phone being traded in. Also, it is good to know that the program is open only to U.S. and Canada residents, so there's no need to write about it to your pen-pal in Switzerland.

The HTC One was initially expected to launch by the end of March with about 185 carriers in over 80 markets. But component shortages lead to significant delays, and the planned component revision may lead to even more supply shortages, which is very likely why HTC is extending its promo once again. Currently, the HTC One is available in the U.S. via AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile.

If only stupid At&t carried the black One, they wouldn't need to keep extending this promo... I'm just waiting for that to happen.. And for the love of God they don't even have the 64gb version of S4!! Who are these people and why do they hate their customers!?!!?

Well there is a catch that the phone you send in has to be in near perfect condition and if it's not you will not get it back, or the $100 dollars. :-/

You may love the HTC One but sales have been very poor. This has been the only way they have gotten customers to really buy it. I'd say they'll probably always have this promotion. Which is an amazing deal, i'd hope it catches on with more OEMs

HTC really is struggling in sales and now they are trying all marketing skills. Funny.

Hmm... does it have to be an active phone? I've got an old, and worse-for-wear at this point, Droid Eris I've been using as my house phone with GrooVe IP... if they'll give me a hundred bucks for that, I might consider it after my VZW contract is up.
