Rumored deal has Best Buy giving you $100 for your trade toward an Apple iPhone 5s or iPhone 5c
Best Buy is apparently trying to make it less stressful on your wallet to buy the Apple iPhone 5s or the Apple iPhone 5c. A leaked internal document from the big box retailer shows that starting October 11th (tomorrow) and running through October 19th, you can get a minimum $100 Best Buy gift card which you can use to buy the Apple iPhone 5c with a two-year contract. That, of course, would essentially make the 16GB iPhone 5c free since that phone is already priced under $100 on contract. From October 13th through the 19th, a working smartphone can be traded in for a minimum $100 Best Buy gift card that can be applied toward the purchase of the Apple iPhone 5s with a two-year contract.

Leaked document reveals Best Buy's trade-in offer for the new Apple iPhone models

Leaked document reveals Best Buy's trade-in offer for the new Apple iPhone models

The condition of the trade is of utmost importance here. The phone you are giving up must be in working condition with out a cracked screen or water damage. You might be able to increase the value of your trade by including the original packaging and any accessories that came with the model. And keep in mind that this promotion cannot be used with the current one Best Buy is offering for the iPhone 5c which prices the mid-range model at $49 with a $50 Best Buy gift card.

If you have iPhone fever and an older smartphone you don't use, you can score a free Apple iPhone 5c or a heavily discounted Apple iPhone 5s from Best Buy by taking advantage of this trade-in offer. As we said, the deal expires October 19th so you don't want to wait until the last minute. You do, however, need to wait for the retailer to make this official.

If I didn't already have a 5S, I'd rush in to get that deal.

This is a sweet deal, and probably a desperate way for Best Buy to get some customers.

More like a way to get rid of iPhone 5c stock that's piled up. We're doing great overall, actually. My department is almost 200 percent to sales goals for the month so far, but Apple way overestimated how many 5c's it would sell by the way they're overflowing in our phone drawers. But no, in your fantasy world it's Best Buy, not Apple, that needs all the customers to come in and buy the phones.

Oh stop lying snig. When you hate apple as much as YOU do, don't expect anyone to buy these stories...other than Sammites. +1 for your creativity though.

Want me to take a photo of my full iPhone drawer at work? I will. Piece of sh.it accusing me of lying. And you claim you're objective.

With reports of Apple cutting 5C orders in half, I'm going with Sniggly. Especially with all the dealers I talk to that are trying to return brand new 32GB version of the 5C because no one wants them at the current price.

Simply because it's not selling. Soon another lie of 20M sold will surface while 19M is lying inside Bestbuy, AT&T and Verizon. Soon it will be free on contract

This... T-Mobile and Best Buy right across the street from me never sold out of the iPhone 5C. Guess the promotion is to get rid of the inventory that's left.

Same thing is said every year and every year it absolutely destroys the closest phone.

The 5s is selling through the limited stock we get. It's really the 5c we're trying to get rid of. Not that no one has bought them, but way fewer have sold than we got in stock.

Apple will sell far more than 20 million iPhones dude. This isn't Motorola, or Htc we're talking about. We're talking about the biggest of the big dawgs. A to the P to the P to the L to the E!!!
