In the spirit of clearing out the old for the new, Best Buy has found a way to kill two birds with one stone. They are holding a smartphone trade-in event this weekend that allows you to trade your old, working smartphone in for a iPhone 5. Wait, huh? That’s right, a shiny iPhone 5. As we all know, earlier this week Apple announced their new smartphones the iPhone 5C and iPhone 5S. With those phones incoming in the next few weeks, old product needs to be gone off the shelves and out of the stock rooms in order to make room for the new.
Now, before you get too excited, there are certain requirements that you need to meet. The main requirement is that you must be eligible for an upgrade, or even sign up for a new agreement. Other than that, it should be in working condition, meaning able to power on. Smartphones with water damaged and cracked screens need not apply.
So who’s going to Best Buy this weekend? If so, I’d love a ride. Thanks.
