Thinking of upgrading your iPhone? I actually wasn’t; it’s my husband who’s chomping at the bit for a new one, and he’s had to endure me telling him it’s not worth the money at this point. But today he brought a little tear to my deal-finding eye.
Right now Best Buy is offering $50 off iPhone 5s, making the 16GB model just $149.99 with contract. Still a lot of money, obviously. And we have iPhone 4s right now, not even 4Ss, so I figured any potential trade-in would be minimal. But… then the husband went on to tell me that Gazelle would give us $145 for our old iPhones, making an upgrade a $5 no-brainer. (Gazelle couldn’t be easier to use, by the way—we’ve used them before and it’s painless—and you can lock in today’s offer for 30 days, giving you some time to complete any potential transaction.)
If you’ve been on a similar fence, just thought this might be useful information to share. Everybody’s happy—we get new phones (husband’s happy) and it costs almost nothing (I’m happy).
