There’s Never Been A Better Time To Trade In Your Old iPhone

green-recycling-symbolIf you’ve been thinking about trading in your iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, or iPhone 5S for a new iPhone 6 or 6 Plus, drop everything and head on over to your local Apple Store. Apple is raising the trade-in price on the three older models in order to boost sales of the newest models.

For the month of June, trading in an iPhone 4S will get you $50 of gift card credit (up from $35), an iPhone 5 captures $100 of credit (up from $85), and that nice iPhone 5S you have? You’ll get $200 of credit for trading it in (up from $175). These deals are only available in the United States.

Of course, if you’ve thought about finally trading in that Samsung smartphone for an iPhone 6 Plus, Apple has a trade-in program for folks who don’t currently own iPhones. Remember, there are also a number of third-party trade-in programs from other companies like Gazelle, Nextworth, and Amazon, the last of which offers some of the more impressive trade-in values for your consumer electronics.
