Walmart Announces Smartphone Trade-In Program
Trading up to the newest smartphone just got easier and less expensive for the millions of smartphone users in the U.S. Starting Sept. 21, consumers will be able to receive immediate credit towards the purchase of a new smartphone when they trade in their current smartphone at more than 3,600 participating Walmart stores and Sam's Club locations nationwide.
Walmart's trade-in program offers an immediate credit from $50 to $300 for more than 100 smartphones. Examples of trade-in values for working, non-damaged smartphones include: $300 for an Apple iPhone 5, $175 for a Samsung Galaxy SIII and $52 for a Samsung Galaxy S2.
