Apple trade in
« on: April 18, 2020, 09:39:53 PM »
Has anyone ever done an apple trade in online?
I would like to trade in 2 iphones (I was told that it’s possible to do so in store however that’s not possible right now) so I was wondering if I order one do the regular trade in process and then return it and do it again...
If someone knows or has done this in the past I would appreciate any leads.
Thanks!



I remember seeing somewhere on DDF that a member once did something similar, however I cannot find it....

I currently have an iphone X, there's nothing wrong with it per se but it's only getting older. I see that I can currently trade it in for the latest and greatest 13 and my monthly payments would be a grand total of $0. I would only have to pay $69 tax upfront and that's it. I re-did the order all the way to last step before I click submit a few times just to make sure everything was correct and each time it says my monthly total is $0 and my "due today" is $69 and that the monthly credits will kick-in in 1-3 months.

Nothing is free, ever, so what am I missing here?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Maybe you would be locked in to carrier for 24-36 months? (You get charged ~$50/mo for the phone and and an equal credit so long as you're subscribed)

Yup, I'm referring to ATT, so what's the catch?

You'll need to:

Purchase an eligible smartphone on a qualifying installment agreement, including taxes on full retail price (up front) and $30 activation/upgrade fee.
Activate/keep postpaid unlimited voice & data wireless service (min. $75/mo. for new unlimited customers before discounts). AT&T may temporarily slow data speeds if the network is busy.

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

they basically charge you 1/30 cost of phone every month and then give you corresponding credit. But if you cancel service/ want to get rid of the phone within 30 months you owe remaining amount on the phone.
I did this with my X for the iphone 12 a few months ago but only got $550 off the cost. This is a very good deal they are all offering now.
