Sprint giving you $100 trade-in credit towards a new iPhone 4S

Yet another brilliant business decision by Sprint.
I can't fathom how they expect to make money on this deal unless Apple's paying them a bounty for those iPhones, or they have a deal with a third party reseller who will be paying handsomely for the iPhones.

They are hoping to resell them on Ebay through a 3rd party more than likely. Also, since all those phones have to be from ATT and VZW, they will all be happy new lines. Then they just have to screw them down to keeping that new iphone for 3 years so they can profit.. :)

Maybe trying to get rid of stock knowing the Iphone 5 or Iphone 4S+ is coming out soon? Who knows.

They just finded out, that they have too big stock of iPhone 4s compared to current sales volume.
Who want's to buy iPhone 4s now, when a new model is coming anyway and there are a lot of other good choices around?

Most of these companies are working with a third party trade in company so they usually are not losing any money. They are most likely paid the trade in amount plus the cost of shipping by the trade in company and then that company will inspect and refurbish as needed. After that, they sell for a profit and Sprint just got a bunch of new customers. It is a win-win.

Nothing new.Sprint has been buying iPhone 4s for 250 since its launch, but this is the first ad I've seen
