Now, Verizon has officially posted a new deal that runs through the end of March. Trade-in a qualifying smartphone in working condition and receive a Verizon gift card with $100 to $300 of value. To determine how much your trade is worth, head to the sourcelink and type in the device that you are looking to get rid off. If it is an Apple iPhone, Find My iPhone must be disabled.
Verizon will accept phones from any carrier although those purchased with government funds, or reported as lost or stolen, are not allowed. The gift card will arrive two weeks after the trade-in is received. If you use the gift card toward a new smartphone, a signed two-year pact is required.

It's never worth trading in a phone. I sold my S4 on VZW and had the buyer try getting me down to the trade in value, I said no way and he still paid my asking price.

Unfortunately, true! Last year I tried to trade in my old iPhone 4 and Verizon only offered me $25, even though it was a Verizon-branded iPhone. So, I tried to sell it on Craigslist but could only get an offering of $75 iBucks in the form of an iTunes magical Gift Card. I decided to keep it since, it's still a GREAT iPod; sure the camera SUCKS and I need binoculars to see the screen but, I don't use it that way - it's just a music player with my favorite DJ Pro App by Algoriddm. Maybe one day I'll go to India and sell it for 1 Billion Rupees.

Typical B.S. at Verizon, no surprise here. They remind me of those trolls or whatever that handle the money in the Harry Potter movies...that's what it looks like at their offices out in Maryland...

Verizon does not get it...The offer is still not appealing. Even if they offered a fair price for my phone, I would be stuck with their expensive tiered data plan for two years if I used the rebate toward a new phone. That trumps any one time low-balled offer for my phone. Any gains from them buying my phone is lost in the added costs for using their service.

Do yourself a favor, and NEVER use a trade in site or store to get money for you smartphones. They will never pay you an amount close to what you can get by selling it yourself. go to the sitewww.swappa.com and it will change how you buy and sell phones. They make it easy, safe, and enjoyable.

I'm surprised actually because they offered me $325 for my iPhone 5. Though I'm sure that if I turned it in, they'd find something wrong with it and lower that value. I hope they do something like this in June when I am eligible to upgrade...totally tired of iOS and can't wait to get back on Android.
