Over a year ago I upgraded from an iPhone 5 to an iPhone 7 (always staying just a generation or 2 behind the newest version so I don't go completely broke). But I lost my precious iPhone 7 in the hills of Jamaica back in February, womp womp, (true story). Instead of going all the way back to my 5 a friend of mine took pity on me and gave me her iPhone 6S which she wasn't using. It's been great. Plenty of gig space, but lately a bit slow annnnd then there's the battery. Ugh! I'm lost without a charger, can't leave home without one. Well after lamenting over whether or not to bite the financial bullet and just upgrade, I learned THIS!!
If you've been hanging on to an older Apple iPhone, the time to get rid of it is now because Apple is making it worth our while to do so, now.
When trading in an iPhone 6 or newer model, you can get up to an additional $100 credit towards the purpose of an iPhone XR or iPhone XS.
An iPhone 6 that normally would earn you a $75 credit towards a new phone will now earn you a $150 credit. That's tough to beat.
Now my only conundrum is this...the iPhone 6 that I was given out of charity from my friend...do I trade it in and use that money toward a NEW iPhone? Am I obligated to give it back to her? Is this ethically wrong? Or...was it legitimately a GIFT and I can do whatever I want with it?
Stay tuned. And in the meantime I'll live vicariously through you! (Go get a new XR!!)
Here are more details:
Amid reports of Apple scaling back iPhone production, the tech behemoth has a new trade-in promotion. This limited time deal will give select iPhone trade-ins up to $100 more when put towards a 2018 iPhone. It clearly seems like a push to drive more sales of these devices.
