Today, August 30th, 2013, Apple has announced its new trade in program. If you bring in your old iPhone to an Apple Store to buy the new one, they will give you a gift card to go toward your new iPhone. According to 9to5Mac
, Apple is only offering around $250 for an iPhone 5 16GB, $120 for an AT&T iPhone 4, and $80 for a Sprint or Verizon iPhone 4. This is around the same you may receive from other trade in sites like Gazelle
, but if you want the most value for your old iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or iPhone 5, check out SideStreetTech
. They are offering more for your iPhone on almost every model compared to competitors.
Now you can always make even more cash by selling on your own using auction sites like eBay
or local listings such as Craigslist, but then you risk dealing with picky buyers and dangerous strangers.
