Apple rolls out US-based iPhone trade-in program, hopefully coming to Canada in the future

    Wow, $300 for even the most impeccably kept device? And you have to go on a contract? worst deal ever

    • Plazmic Flame

      As I’ve said on past articles, trade-in programs do not usually equal a benefit for the consumer.

    • Fawoo

      Yeah it’s more of a convenience service.

    • Richard Xing

      I’m seeing $406 for an AT&T iPhone 5 64GB

    • Philosoraptor

      Why would you have to go on contract?
      Still, a horrible deal like all other trade-in programs.

    • Thomas

      I sold my Galaxy Nexus for $250 last week on Craigslist, that is terrible for what I could get on Craigslist or Kijiji

  • kijiji

    Why would I even use this as opposed to just selling my phone on kijiji…

      Some people are under the impression that arranging a sale online is too much of a hassle, and meeting a stranger afterwards is unsafe. For the most part, I disagree. However, this program will have its clients, even if you and I think that it is an obvious ripoff.

      Meet stranger in a public place is always safe. Set meeting at shopping mall, next to Apple store where they have many cameras and you will be safe. Bring you buddy, if it’s still not enough for you)
