Thinking About a New AT&T Smartphone? Carrier Announces $100 Trade-In Offer

Whether you’ve got your eye on the iPhone 5, Galaxy S 4, or HTC One, AT&T has a nice lineup of smartphones it would love nothing more than to sell to you. In order to help sweeten the deal, the carrier has announced a new promotion to give you $100 or more for your old clunker of a smartphone.

As long as the trade-in phone is less than three years old and in good working condition, AT&T will credit you a minimum of $100 for it, to be used towards the purchase of a new AT&T smartphone. Heck, it might even be worth your money to buy a brand-new low-end phone from a pre-paid carrier and offload it straight away to AT&T. If you’ve already got some ancient Android stuck on Froyo living at the bottom of a drawer somewhere, so much the better.

There’s even the chance that you could get more than $100 for your trade-in, though AT&T hasn’t published a list of just what to expect for which models – clearly, at least, newer, higher-end phones will fetch more. No matter what, you’re still getting that $100.

Before you jump on this deal, you might want to do a little homework and see just what kind of prices your old phone is demanding at the moment. If you’re willing to do the legwork and put it up on Craigslist or eBay yourself, you could potentially end up getting more than what AT&T’s offering – just something to keep in mind.
