Get the Lumia 1020 or 1520 for free when you trade in your old iPhone or Galaxy at Microsoft Stores

Have an iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, or Samsung Galaxy S2? You deserve something better according to a recent deal from Microsoft. You can trade those devices to get the Nokia Lumia 1020 or Lumia 1520 for free at Microsoft retail stores in the U.S. or Canada. See which one best suits your needs. The deal requires a qualifying 2-year (new or upgrade) contract and is valid until March 2nd, 2014.

The Nokia Lumia 1520 is a high-end Windows Phone phablet featuring a 6-inch 1080 display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 2.2GHz quad-core CPU. It also has a 20 MP camera with f/2.2 lens, 4 high-amplitude audio capture (HAAC) microphones, and a massive 3400 mAh battery. Read our Nokia Lumia 1520 review for more details.

The Nokia Lumia 1020 gets you closer than ever with the 41-megapixel camera sensor, PureView technology, Optical Image Stabilization, and high-resolution zoom. It also features a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen, 32GB of internal memory (no expansion), 2GB of RAM and a dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon CPU. Read our Nokia Lumia 1020 for more details.

Sounds like a good deal? There are some notes in the fine print. To be eligible for trade-in, your device must power on and be in fully functional, working condition without broken/missing components, cracked display/housing or liquid damage. It also cannot be password protected and must include the original chargers/accessories.

Microsoft has 83 full-line and specialty stores across North America. We love visiting because everyone can play with the latest products. They are also home to some really good deals. Don’t worry if you don’t live near one. Microsoft plans to open new stores while also transitioning some of the specialty stores (usually kiosks) into permanent full-line stores. Unfortunately, no plans have been shared about Microsoft brick-and-mortar stores outside North America.

Head over to the Microsoft’s offers page and select the store nearest you for more details. Is this a good deal? Let us know in the comments! 

Thanks for the tip, Atif A.!
