Walmart Launches Smartphone Trade-In Program
I swear Walmart is holding up its promise to be your neighborhood “One Stop Shop” with everything they have to offer. Not only can you get groceries and personal items to cashing checks and purchasing tickets from Ticketmaster, you can now trade in your old smartphone for a new one!
Starting September 21, 2013, you will be able to receive immediate credit towards the purchase of a new smartphone when you trade in your 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 S3
$52 for a Samsung Galaxy S2
Customers should bring their working smartphone to an associate in the electronics department at participating Walmart stores and Sams Club locations. In partnership with CEexchange, the value of the smartphone will then be assessed by answering simple, unbiased questions on the device’s condition and specifications. Once accepted, the trade-in value will be applied to a new smartphone of your choice with a 2 year contract from AT&T, Verizon Wireless or Sprint.
You can also apply the trade-in value to smartphones available with prepaid plans like Straight Talk, which is only available at Walmart.
If you’re looking to trade in electronics like tablets, MP3 players, video games, cameras, laptops and more can turn “gadgets to gift cards” on Walmart.com.
