AT&T Tinkering with Smartphone Trade-In Promotion

AT&T announced this week that 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.

And in case you’re wondering, yes, that includes the new Samsung Galaxy S 4 and even the BlackBerry Z10 or 32 GB HTC One.

These devices are normally $199.99 with a qualifying two-year agreement but, with this 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.

Some trade-in phones may have a value higher than $100. In this case, customers will receive the credit at the higher value, AT&T says.

To take advantage of this offer, customers are encouraged to visit any AT&T company-owned retail store or participating authorized dealer with their previous smartphone that is no more than three years old and in good, working condition.

In stores, the carrier says, upon trading in their old phone, customers will receive the $100 credit on-the-spot and can use it right away.
