trade in

Thinking of picking up an Xbox One, but it is just a bit too expensive? Well, you might just be in luck – Microsoft wants to help you out and give you $100 in Microsoft Store credit when you trade in one of your existing game consoles. What could be a better way of clearing a space for your Xbox One than getting $100?

The limited time promotion allows consumers to bring in their existing Xbox 360 Slim, Xbox 360 E (the latest generation of Xbox 360 console), or even a Sony PlayStation 3 to receive the $100 credit. Unfortunately if you have the original Xbox 360 or Nintendo’s Wii/WiiU – you aren’t welcome to participate.

AT&T has today announced a new trade in program for select new hardware, including the Lumia 1520 from Nokia. Starting today, you'll be able to trade in a qualified smartphone at your local AT&T store to receive at least $100 off Nokia's "phablet." The Windows Phone will still require a two-year contract, but at least you're slashing something off the initial cost, which would set you back $199.

A few days ago, Cnet reported that Amazon.com was running a promotion for certain Xbox 360 games whereby a customer can trade up for the Xbox One version (which won’t be out until December 31st).

How does it work? Customers who purchased one of select Xbox 360 games, including Call of Duty: Ghosts, Need for Speed Rivals, Madden NFL 25, and NBA 2K14, can return the game for a $25 credit and a $25 trade in value. Since Xbox One games will cost $60, that leaves a $10 difference for the purchase. Such a system will allow you to play the game for a few months on your Xbox 360 instead of having to wait for the Xbox One version.

Not long before their big event today in New York City, HTC has announced a new endeavor called "HTC Trade Up." As the name suggests, the Trade Up program lets you trade in your old smartphone (as long as it is in working condition) for up to $300 toward a new HTC phone.

Here's how it works: Firstly, you need to get a quote for your current device by going to the source link below. After that, you purchase a new HTC smartphone, and mail in your old one. HTC will then send you a prepaid Visa card for the amount that was quoted to you. Quotes are good for 30 days.

We're not going to claim credit for this, but obviously there was quite a backlash against Sprint for using the Arrive as the poster-child for their Buyback program, at least if you go by the comments. If you recall, Sprint put the Arrive up for their Buyback program, which was prominently featured on the Sprint iPhone 4S page.

Now, perhaps due to a change of heart or perhaps a phone call from Microsoft, the Arrive has been replaced by the LG Lotus Elite. Hey, maybe they regularly rotate those phones and this is just coincidence, so we'll keep an eye on it, but at least for now the Arrive is spared the humiliation of being the iPhone 4S trade-in phone.

Source: Sprint; Thanks, Kien G., for the tip!
