Trade In Your Old Android Phone for $100 Towards an New AT&T iPhone

Posted in Apple News, Miscellaneous on 30/04/2013 by Chris Hauk


AT&T has upgraded its in-store smartphone trade-in program. The new plan will give an instant credit of at least $100 for any smartphone that is less than three years old. Phones of a more recent vintage, or that are more valuable will bring a larger reward.


MacRumors notes that the credits are good for the purchase of any AT&T smartphone or accessories, so that means that someone could trade in their older phone, say an Android, and could get a free iPhone 4, or pay only $99 for a 16GB iPhone 5.

From the AT&T News Release:

Beginning May 1, consumers who trade in their current smartphone to AT&T* will be eligible to receive at least $100 off the purchase of a new smartphone, including the new Samsung Galaxy® S 4, BlackBerry® Z10 or 32 GB HTC One®. These devices are normally $199.99 with a qualifying two-year agreement but, with this limited time promotion, they will be available for $99.99.

This promotion applies to any smartphone AT&T sells, and gives customers access to the latest devices at a fraction of the cost or, in the case of smartphones priced under $99.99, for free.

The $100 promotion is for the proverbial “limited time only”, but AT&T has not given a specific ending date for the promotion.
