Get a free Apple iPhone 5 from Best Buy with the trade-in of your old smartphone

0. phoneArena 13 Sep 2013, 11:29 posted on

If things like a fingerprint sensor, an improved camera, or a faster processor don't matter to you, you could pick up the Apple iPhone 5 for free from Best Buy; you do have to trade in your old smartphone for which Best Buy will give you $100 minimum. The caveat is that the funds must be applied to the purchase of an Apple iPhone 5, with a signed two-year pact from AT&T, Verizon or Sprint...

Fire sale for a discontinued product! Reminds me of the HP Touch Tablet.

Trade your iPhone 4S into iPhone 5 and you already have iPhone 5C just in not so cheap looking body.

Why discontinue the 5 and keep the 4S a 3G phone. Makes no sense. But nor does the 5S or 5C--probably explains the 30 BILLION DOLLAR sell off by investors a day after unveiling. Run before the well get's dry.

i think because the iphone 5 looks too similar to the 5s, so people would just keep buying the iphone 5 for $100 less and with minimal difference.

So take POS smartphone in. Get $100. Get Iphone 5. Pay $325 etf. Sell iphone 5 for probably way more than $325?

So looked into it more. You'll be paying $36 activation plus whatever tax on $99 is in your area. New iphone 16gb seem to be selling around $500-550 on ebay. Probably can make $100ish off it after fees and hassle.

i don't know the details of the deal, but according to this article it says best buy will give u $100 credit _minimum_ towards the purchase of an iphone 5 from them, which i'm gonna guess is $99.99. unless of course this article is wrong.

That's not what it says on the BB site. Your phone has to power on, not have a broken screen and have a value in their system.

pretty much you can trade in any smartphone- even if their trade in site says it has $0 value. They took an old LG Incite, and an old Lg Thrive! $200 towards new iphones. They would have been free, but we paid $99 more for 32 GB. So total was $198 plus $72 activation fees and tax of $14.

This promo is going on thru tomorrow. I haven't had an iphone for 2 years- I went android but will be trying the iphone 5 again.

After the release of the 5c that I thought was pretty poor- almost the same as the 5, and Seeing the 5s didn't have much more upgrades, we went for the 5.
