iPhone 5 is Free at Best Buy via Trade-in Program

A week and two days is all the time iPhone users have to go to Best Buy stores and exchange their past models of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S for brand new iPhone 5 versions. The limited window of opportunity is a boon and a blessing for the electronic freaks. According to USA Today, the outdated iPhones can get credit for about $150 each and new iPhone 5 16GB model can be purchased from the money as its price is $149.99. The $50 rebate means that the new model is for all purposes free of cost.

There are certain conditions though. One is an upgrade eligibility. The spanking new iPhone price runs the gamut in accordance with the physical state of the old one that is given in exchange.  If the obsolete version is relatively intact (worth higher than $149.99) then a Gift Card worth $50 will be given along with the purchase. One downside to this trade hub is that it cannot be carried out in an online environment. Buyers will have to visit a Best Buy store. The individuals going in for the deal will have to sign a two year contract and make a sales tax payment of $35 to boot. Thus although the deal is lucrative it comes at a price.

Best Buy recently recalled some lithium ion batteries that had proved to be a fire hazard. The compensation it offered made the clientele base applaud its humane spirit. Now with this exchange program that allows people to throw out the old stuff and bring in the new technology in their lives, it has once again won the public’s trust and applause.

Previously, a similar swapping program had taken place on 1st June and it was a huge success. However, the retail store refused to disclose the exact number of sales. Now it has decided to once again give the consumers what they desire. Verizon, AT&T and Sprint carriers are always welcome at Best Buy stores. Partly the whole show is an effort to boost sales of all sorts of products sold at the store. The more people enter the store buildings, the more are the chances of them buying products inadvertently. It seems Best Buy was definitely in seventh heaven after that most successful sales nexus operation which took place last time. This time though it is projected to be an even more colossal success.
