By Stephen Pate – Amazon.com is offering consumers an immediate trade-in quotation for their iPhone 5 and 4 smartphones ahead of the September 9th expected launch of the iPhone 6.
Almost 10 million iPhone users are expected to trade-up to the new iPhone 6 which is expected to be 4.7&Prime or 5.5&Prime.
Apple fans are already lining up at the New York City Manhattan Apple Store 5 days ahead of the September 9th announcement and they don’t even know what Apple will reveal.
These are people, millions of them, who have to own the latest Apple devices.
Amazon.com is offering to guarantee a 45-day bid price for their old phone, since Apple rarely does trade-ups.
You can trade in an array of eligible electronics they already own – all in one place, even in one box, along with the convenience of free shipping.
You can take advantage of the 45-day lock-in period (starting 9/9-10/10) to lock in values on hot phones – Apple iPhone5s 64 GB AT&T- $400* or Apple iPhone 5 64 GB Verizon- $363.55* – while they wait to buy their new device. (Note: *Trade-in values are subject to change based on market rate.)
